Orange Lips And Romantic Hair At Milly Spring 2011 Show
The fabulous Romy Soleimani (pictured third below) led the MAC Cosmetics team backstage at the Milly Spring/Summer 2011 show.
To complement Michelle Smith’s Peggy Guggenheim-inspired collection, with its black and tomato red chevron prints and its vermilion rose patterns, Soleimani opted for a strong lip, applying a mixture of MAC Pro Longwear Lipcreme in Go For It (new for Spring 2011), MAC Pro Lipmix in Orange, and MAC Cream Colour Base in Devilish. The cheekbones, meanwhile, were accentuate with MAC Cream Color Base in Rich Coral. The eye makeup, meanwhile, was barely there: just a hint of clear MAC Gloss Texture swept along the lids to give eyes a dewy sheen and a few coats of MAC Mascara X in Black X to pump up the lash volume. That’s just five products — talk about a minimalist look!
Celebrity hair stylists Kevin Ryan and Frank Rizzieri, founders of R Session Tools, created the equally simple hair look, which consisted of straight hair with just the hint of a wave at the ends of strands. Since most models donned turban-like headwraps, the hair look needed to feel effortless, as if it hadn’t been styled at all but was just naturally lustrous and bouncy. To create the look,the hair team used the R Session Tapered Curling Iron, following up with a few spritzes of the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray to obtain a matte finish.
Also, here’s an interesting behind-the-scenes scoop: the leaf-shaped hair clips the models are wearing in these pictures aren’t your run-of-the-mill metal clips. These are the latest offering from Ricky’s NYC, the No-Crease hair clips, which were designed to pin strands away from the face without leaving any creases or marks (as most clips and bobby pens tend to do). The lightweight but durable No-Crease hair clips feature plastic that can withstand the high heat emanated from professional styling tools, cleverly spaced cut-outs that allow for greater ventilation, and a design that evenly distributes weight and tension along the clip itself, hence preventing any one area from exerting excess pressure on the hair it’s securing. The silver and pink leaf-shaped No-Crease designs pictured here are available at RickysNYC.com and retail for $5.99 for a pack of five clips.
