City Pulse

East meets west at the Trina Turk AW 2013 show. The collection was full of vibrant colors, edgy patterns and bold hats. Stila Cosmetics makeup artist Sarah Lecero went with a sophisticated look, with sunset colors to complement Trina’s color palette and of-the-moment designs.

Sarah started with HD Illuminating BB Cream as foundation. She wanted the skin to glow without looking heavy. Over foundation she lightly used HD Bronzing BB Cream for a sun kissed look. On the apples of the cheeks she used Self Adjusting Bronze Blush. Finishing in a soft rose, coral, giving the skin a naturally flushed appearance. On the lid of the eyes, Sarah used Jewel Eye Shadow in Citrine, rustic orange tone. The eyes were then lined with a soft brown eyeliner in Tiger’s Eye. To finish the look she used color balm lipstick in Maya.

Hair was sophisticated yet subtly chic. Marty Harper went with an everyday, effortless runway ponytail. He prepped the hair with Redken 28 to give the hair a clean shine. After prepping the hair, he brushed the hair back, using a Mason Pearson Brush into a tight over the ear ponytail. Marty then wrapped a few strands of hair from the ponytail over the hair tie.

The beauty look was made complete with Julep nail polish. They went with a soft nude-gray polish called Whitney on the fingernails and a gray-mauve on the model’s toes. The nail artists used Freedom topcoat, leaving the nails with a gel like shine.
