The inspiration behind Vivienne Tam’s Spring 2012 Collection at NYFW was a Japanese Zen Garden mixed with a modernized 1970s vibe. Makeup and hair trends certainly echoed this aura on the models.

Andy Koh, Make-up Artist for Maybelline® New York, achieved a natural face by applying a light FIT Me™ foundation on the T-zone area and a darker shade on the cheeks for sculpture. FIT Me blush was sparsely applied for a healthy glow. Eye Studio® colors were green and copper on the upper eye lids to suggest florals and trees. Volum’ Express® Falsies™ Mascara was lightly applied to lashes for a natural long look, never heavy or clumpy. A three-step approach was used on lips: First Color Sensational® Lipcolor in coral lustre, second Eye Studio Color Plush™ in gold, and finally Color Sensational® clear gloss on lips.

Leon Gorman, Lead Stylist for Cutler/Redken Salon, complemented Tam’s summery dresses with hair that also looked organic and nature/garden-inspired. He applied Redken Full Frame 07 Protective Volumizing Mousse to mold hair and for thickness and volume, then it was blown dry. Tresses were then pulled into a ponytail, which was wrapped around the base to form a loose bun and held in place with a few pins. This simple “summer knot” was sleek but a mess, had wispy strands dangling, and was pinned low and to the side. Redken Fashion Work 12 Versatile Working Hairspray provided a light hold. The look is very wearable and easy to attain. (http://cutlersalon.com); (http://www.redken.com)

After learning about the makeup and hair trends I was off to view Tam’s colorful clothes before they went on the models. My two favorites: A flower printed kimono sleeve dress paired with gladiator sandals; and a blue print dress with fringe paired with nude pumps and an orange bag with studded shoulder strap for a bold color punch.

I love the Garden…
