Backstage Beauty: Timo Weiland’s ‘Feminine Tomboys’ With Killer Nails
Backstage at Timo Weiland‘s fall show yesterday, it was all about textured tresses, creamy skin, and high octane, super sparkly tips.
MAC makeup artist Chantel Miller started with the idea of a cool Lower East Side girl, but, as she clarified, the look was still very “sophisticated and ‘done’.” She began with Pro Sculpting Cream to contour the model’s faces, then used Studio Finish concealer to correct blemishes and brighten the eyes, finishing with a hint of shimmer in the inner corners and a swipe of Extended Play Lash mascara. On the lips, Miller chose to work with the Cremeblend blush in “Ladyblush” rather than lipstick because the result is closer to lips’ natural texture. No super shiny gloss here!
Texture was also on the mind of lead L’Oréal Professionnel stylist Joseph DiMaggio, who used a flat iron to create an “S-bend” in the girls’ locks. He was inspired, he said, by a woman who’s had a rough work week and takes a trip into the countryside — weary industry folk, take note!
As for the nails, Zoya technicians used their new Pixie Dust polish in three shades layered one on top of another for a look with extra depth and a whole lotta sparkle. The first, “Godiva”, was a shimmery champagne, followed by a purple-y periwinkle called “Dahlia”, and an inky black “Nyx” flecked with silver. So even if you’re no whiz with the nail art, this is one you can definitely tackle at home.
