Marissa Webb’s Spring 2015 collection is easy and wearable, but with an edge. Webb’s inspiration was East and West, which encompassed not just the United States, but the world. Many looks were layered with apron like tops or long vests with a Far East flavor, and the shades ranged from primary colors such as red and blue, to olive drab and metallics. The models even wore Western cowboy style strappy boots or sandals. The hair and make-up was simple and designed to look like the model wasn’t trying too hard to be gorgeous. The most glam part of the look was the manicure, which captured a metallic accent on the tips.
Most of the models had braids, which are a hot trend in fashion now, and lead stylist Jeanie Syfu for TreSemme, created two intricate designs. Using TreSemme’s 24-Hour Body Mousse followed by blow drying the hair, Syfu side parted the hair and pulled it back loosely into a five-stranded braid. Some models wore the braid swept to the side. Other models had their hair parted in three sections with two braids on each side and the middle section lifted higher in the front and braided down the back. All three braids were pulled together in back. Syfu completed the looks with 24-Hour Finishing Spray.
Make-up was also effortless looking with a smokey eye as the focus. Lead make-up artist Yadim for Maybelline, used Master Kajal Eyeliner in Onyx Rush and Charcoal Skies mixed together to line the eyes and also applied it to the lids. Lashes had Great Lash Mascara on the top and bottom. A sheer Dream Wonder Foundation and a light cheek color called Color Tattoo Loose Pigments in Barely Branded finished the face. Lips were natural with Baby Lips Lip Balm.
Lead manicurist, Honey, said that she used the East West inspiration for the manicure by using opposite colors on the nails. A soft pink Maybelline shade called Born with It was applied to the nails and the tips were finished with a bold silver metallic line of polish in Pedal to the Metal. Honey said that the toes were kept completely bare with no color.
