Backstage Beauty: Rebecca Minkoff x stila & Essie

Designer’s Inspiration: Masculine mod pout, strength, structure, sophistication and radiant skin.

For Sarah Lucero, stila Global Artistic Director, fall is all about the textured power pout in a high pigment color. When recreating the makeup statement for Rebecca Minkoff‘s fall ’14 show, Sarah knew texture would be essential in the application.

Start by neutralizing the lip with foundation or concealer. Try stila ‘stay all day’ foundation & concealer. Next, apply a deep lip color like stila ‘stay all day’ liquid lipstick in Amore. To create a velvety matte finish, lightly dust the lips with a brown shadow starting in the center of the lip and then blend outwards. The two colors used for this application give the perfect balance of deep berry and warm brown.

The Trend: Mod maven.

Nail artist Michelle Saunders for Essie created a bold and modern twist on a classic French manicure.

To get the look:
1) First, apply a base coat to clean, filed nails.
2) Once dry, apply two coats of Essie Nail Polish – Purples in Bahama Mama.
3) Using Essie Nail Polish – Blues in Midnight Cami, brush on a neat arc across the edge of the nail and let dry.
4) Finish off the look with one coat of Essie ‘Good To Go!’ Top Coat.
