This season I was able to go backstage the “Badgley Mischka” show and chat with Deborah Lippmann about the nails for the Fall/Winter 2012 show.
She said that the overall show was inspired by the movie “Metropolis”, so the look was very dark. So, they went with using a dark aubergine called “Dark Side of the Moon” for the base color, and for texture on the tips they used a gold called “Nefertiti”. She also gives a great tip to do your own french style manicure at home, too:
I do not hide my fangirl love for Mally Roncal in the least. So it should come as no surprise how much I enjoy getting to go backstage at Tracy Reese shows and talk to her. This season I was greeted by Mally’s right-hand MUA, Albee Franson with a big hug and the exclamation that my eyes were great & exactly what was being done for the models in Tracy’s show, “somebody must have leaked”. LOL! It made me feel great that my lazy day eyes of only bright eyeliner and mascara were on point!
Mally told us (*with her hilarious NSFW potty mouth, that she controls so well on QVC!) that the look for the Fall/Winter 2012 show was flawless skin (*of course), super highlighted cheeks with lightly bronzed face, super full brows and with a rosy-ish lip. The liner was a pencil, super fast and easy to look “like you did it yourself”.
This season I was able to go backstage at Tracy Reese and talk to hairstylist Jeanie Syfu, for TRESemme, about the look for the Fall/Winter 2012 fashion show.
She said that the look was created by applying the 24Hour Body Mousse, then rough drying the hair for texture. They then curled random sections of hair with a double-barrel for an irregular wave pattern, before pulling the hair into a ponytail at the nape of the neck.
This season I was lucky enough to go backstage “Carmen Marc Valvo” and see one of my favorite makeup artists, Romero Jennings, for MAC. We chatted about his fab shoes and the look for the Fall/Winter fashion show, among other things.
He told me that he created a really strong smokey eye, drawing ideas from “The Artist”.
