Backstage Beauty: Celebrity Makeup Artist, James Vincent for Kevyn Aucoin & Davines for Hair at Suzanne Rae S/S 2013

Inspired by Suzanne Rae’s Spring 2013 collection and her minimal Japanese influence, Celebrity Makeup Artist, James Vincent brings the look to life by complementing the neutral palette and pops of blue in the collection using classic makeup artist cult favorites from Kevyn Aucoin.

 “This look is not soft, not bridal and not close up editorial.  It is taking the energy of Suzanne Rae and Kevyn Aucoin so we have a beautiful raw energy.  That is what this look is all about,” say Celebrity Makeup Artist, James Vincent. “There is no mascara and no eye pencil inside the eye

 THE MAKEUP LOOK

Brow: Apply Kevyn Aucoin Eye Shadow Single in #101 (light bone) and #104 (soft clay) for a lightened brow and extreme look that brings the focus to the eye.

Cheek: The cheek is very raw and organic. Use the Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder in Medium to bring structure to the face.  Apply Pure Powder Glow in Fira and Delphine  (orange and peach tones) from the highest point of the cheekbone to the base of the eye for an “out in the elements”/ “windburn” appearance.  Buff and perfect skin with Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer on top of blush so it appears as though the blush is flushing through the skin, rather than sitting on top, adding additional structure.

Lip:  Apply Kevyn Aucoin NEW Matte Lipstick shades for 2013in cool taupe and camel colors.  Use the Kevyn Aucoin Flesh Tone Lip Pencil to ensure lips are natural and sculpted. “These camel shades are essentials for spring” says Vincent!

THE HAIR

Joy Polintanfor Davines created a “clean look with a little edge” at the Suzanne Rae show.
Step by Step to Achieve The Look:
  • First, Politan evenly applied a generous amount of Davines For Wizards No. 3 Universal Mattering Mousse through the hair and brushed through to uniformly distribute product
  • She then dried the hair, brushing back and away from the face to make sure the crown was flat and smooth
  • Pulling the hair taught, Politan created a low clean ponytail and wrapped it with a black elastic
  •   Using Davines For Wizards No. 7 Crystal Fixative Lacquer, Polintan sprayed the hair and flat ironed the ponytail so it laid flat with no flyaways or frizz
  • Lastly, synthetic black bangs were clipped in to create a sharp geometric mini-bob

Backstage Beauty: Deanna Melluso for Kevyn Aucoin at Clover Canyon S/S 2013 NYFW

Lead Makeup Artist Deanna Melluso for Kevyn Aucoin describes the makeup for the Clover Canyon Spring 2013 Collection as the “Johnny Cash, desert inspired look”.  The spring collection is largely inspired by the vibrant colors and textures, from low-rider and muscle carsdriving through the magical landscapes of the American Southwest on a glamorously youthful road trip.  Melluso says “the makeup is juxtaposed against the vibrantly colorful designs with natural, matte makeup that has a dusty feel as if you just been on a road trip with Johnny Cash in a convertible.” The focal point of the look is the brows! They are brushed up, thick, dark and modern. “I think brows are going to be the hot thing for spring” says Melluso.

THE LOOK:
Face:  Perfect skin with The Sensual Skin Enhancer.  Then apply a combination of The Tropical Days and Tropical Nights

Eyes:  Mix The Sensual Skin Primer with The Sensual Skin Enhancer and apply over lids for a natural flawless eye that brings focus to the brows.
Brows:  Fill in brows with The Precision Brow Pencil in Brunette ( a BB411 Favourite) using a back & forth motion for a dark, thick, natural and wind-blown look. To keep brows in place brush them up with The Kevyn Aucoin Eyebrow Gel, set to launch in 2013.
Lips:  Apply The Expert Lipstick in Faith and top with The Loose Powder in Diaphanous for a nude, matte and dusted effect.
