It's all a bit chic in Paris this season. With simple make up and hair, and a touch of colour on the lips, Spring 2013 looks like a simple beauty affair.
At Kenzo, Marian Newman and her team of legendary manicurists were back, bright and early, to get the Kenzo 'Rumble in the jungle' going. With corresponding colours to their outfits, from forest green to taupe and orange, each girls nails accessorised their look which was also the case with their eye liner with a rainbow of MAC Chromaline colours and polishes ensuring the models were top to toe with jungle fever. The rave continued on the catwalk and in the collection. So next season, get ready to rumble!!!
2. It was just brow-sing at Costume National, where make up artist Sally Branken took full advantage of the new MAC brow pencils that were being used backstage and created a heavy, strong but chic brow. If there's one thing we're certain of, handsome, mannish brows are here to stay for next season. If you're not blessed with a Brooke Shield's brow, and your patience is beyond growing them out, then you'll be interested in the new MAC offerings. Designed for easy brow filling with a natural, feather like appearance, you'll be mastering couture brows in no time.
3. By the time we got to Akris, it was time for another pop of considered, chic colour. This time on the lips. Diane Kendal painted the model's lips a beautiful soft red, YSL's lipstick in 17, making sure the line of the lipstick wasn't a hard edge, 'it's more modern a bit feathered" Diane explained. Whilst skin was luxuriously prepped with a facial massage and plenty of make up artist favourite moisturiser Embryolisse, for a super dewy texture and finish.
4. Let's face it, we all aspire to be a Celine women, well most of us any way and the key to looking like a Celine women next season is all in the blow dry. Forgot Bergdorg blow-outs or a Chelsea blow dry, the hair was 'cool, day old blow dry which had a richness to it' hair guru Guido explained. But how to achieve such a specific thing? It's simple. "blow dry your hair with dry shampoo like REDKEN Powder Refresh. The dry shampoo gives the hair the texture needed-a lived in blow dry feels sexy". We might be trying that one day more without washing that little bit longer! Eat your heart out Kate Middleton!
