Last September, I went backstage at the Lela Rose Spring 2009 show – to get the skinny on hair and makeup. Ted Gibson fashioned roughed-up braids and cornrows to complement the collection’s African-inspired theme. And makeup artist Tina Turnbow used Stila products to transform each model into “a very adventurous, outdoorsy woman on safari.”
Now, Stila and have teamed up to create a kit that allows real women to achieve Lela’s runway look.

Stila Backstage with Lela Rose and contains the key products used by every artist backstage at the Spring 2009 show. Stila Sun Shade 02 was used to bronze the models’ cheekbones; this bronzer is known for its amazing buildable color, which makes it a makeup artist favorite – season after season. Cranberry Lip Glaze popped the models’ pouts. For the eyes, Starlight Eye Shadow let the lids shimmer with a champagne glow, and a coating of Major Lash Mascara in Brown helped to create a balanced, feminine face.

Stila Backstage with Lela Rose and is a $77 value, but you can snap one up for only $34. Exclusively sold at
