New York Fashion Week: L.A.M.B., Fall 2010

lamb+fall+2010 New York Fashion Week: L.A.M.B., Fall 2010

My girl Megan McIntyre of Daily Makeover scored an exclusive interview with Gwen Stefani, backstage at the L.A.M.B. Fall 2010 Fashion Week show.

Fall/Winter 2010 Fashion Week started today, and Daily Makeover kicked it off backstage at L.A.M.B. with designer Gwen Stefani. She gave us an exclusive look into what inspires her, how she creates that fab red lip (girlfriend does her own makeup!) and what beauty look her husband can’t get enough of.

fall+2010+l.a.m.b. New York Fashion Week: L.A.M.B., Fall 2010What inspired the beauty look for the L.A.M.B. show?
The collection is based on a vintage, naughty, Hollywood starlet girl, a little bit of a modern, futuristic girl and a little bit of a soldier girl. I found these Ellen von Unwerth pictures with black makeup and the dark lips [that I loved] so we’re going to do the hair very set, vintage and glamorous with a lot of bangs.

The thing that I’ve learned is that you have an inspiration, you have a picture, an idea and it just evolves into what it’s going to be. You don’t consider when you come up with three ideas for a theme that you’re going to have a blizzard, a baby with an ear infection and the Chinese new year, but at the end of the day the creative process of having that pressure and that drama means you come up with things you normally wouldn’t. I can’t wait to see it all together. For me, it’s all about that part with the music and seeing the girls.

Red lips are a big beauty trend we’re seeing for Fall 2010. The red lipstick look is already one of your trademarks!
I just love when things that I love come back into style. I don’t have one specific red lipstick that I use. MAC’s sponsoring the show today, so [lead makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury] put a mixture of four different reds on me. I know she definitely used Russian Red. I tend to go more for the blue-reds than the orange-reds–I think they look better on me.

My husband [musician Gavin Rossdale] actually really likes [red lips] so whenever I don’t wear them he’s like “Wait, where are the lips?” So I like that Hollywood glamorous look and I always have and always will…I’m kind of stuck in my own ways.

Grammy Gorgeous: Pink

pink+grammys+2010 Grammy Gorgeous: PinkPink’s look at the 52nd annual Grammy Awards was a shimmering vision of modern glamour.

Stylist Marco Santini, who highlighted glistening shine to play up her platinum hair color, and define her texture and subtle grey tips, created the sophisticated red carpet look.

Santini, inspired by her silver-grey gown and the dramatic performance to come, created a unique, flowing shape that emphasized volume, height, and the illusion of movement. He accented the look with a diamond star-shaped pin.

Santini stayed with Pink after the red carpet, and was backstage waiting to quickly reproduce the look right after her stunning aerial performance of “Glitter in the Air” during which she was drenched in a shower of water.

“I had to work very quickly to restyle her look,” explained Santini. “I used Moroccanoil argan oil-infused products because I know they instantly absorb into hair, produce amazing shine, and won’t create build up. The look had to appear as fresh, light, and beautiful the second time around as it did for the red carpet.”

How Marco Santini Created Pink’s Much Discussed Look:

Step 1:
Santini started by applying Moroccanoil Treatment throughout the singer’s damp hair to create a silky-smooth shine. He placed a small amount in the palm of his hand then combed through the hair with his fingers.

Step 2:
Next Santini applied argan oil-infused Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream from the roots through the ends for lift at the root and to give soft shine-enhancing hold, as well as create a “grip” for his brush while blow drying shape and direction.

Step 3:
After Pink’s cropped locks were blow-dried, Santini misted new argan-oil infused Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray on the outer layer and saturated several layers inside the hair from root to end. Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray leaves hair looking weightless and gives the hair glistening shine without sticky residue or build-up (especially important in this style since Santini had to reproduce the look after her Grammy performance). Santini then brushed the sides of Pink’s hair back and sculpted a rockabilly fold toward the nape of the neck.

Step 4:
He finished the look with a light mist of Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray all over the hair (from a distance of 10-12 inches) for an instant boost of shine. The final touch to Pink’s Grammy look was a star-shaped diamond brooch that was fastened to the front of her hair. Santini took a small
section of hair towards the front of her head and tied it with a clear rubber band., then fastened the diamond brooch to the hair for an elegant touch.

Face
“For Kristen’s face, I first applied mark Calm & Composed Super Soothing Moisturizer followed by mark Face Xpert Flawless Touch Makeup in Buff using the mark Foundation Brush. To cover any redness, I used mark Good Riddance Hook Up Concealer in Fair/Light and mark Get Bright Hook Up Highlighter in Light underneath her eyes. I then set her foundation by brushing on mark Matte-nificent Oil Absorbing Powder in Nude Ivory using the mark Powder Brush. As a final touch, I applied mark Good Glowing Mosaic Blush Custom Color Palette in Sandy to the apples of her cheeks to create that natural looking glow.”

Eyes
“I wanted to make Kristen’s eyes the focus of her face, so I started by smudging mark Eyemarker Color On Line in Jet along the top of her lash line using the mark Eyeliner Brush. I extended the liner outwards so that it looked like a smudged cat eye. I then mixed I-mark Custom Pick Eyeshadows in Tiki and Magic and lightly dusted onto her lids, using the mark Angled Contour Eyeshaodw Brush to soften the edge by blending it back and forth. I then used two coats of mark Lash Splash Hook Up Waterproof Mascara in Black on her upper and lower lashes.”

Lips
“For her lips I used mark Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lip Gloss in m.powerment Peach.”

Grammy Gorgeous: Jennifer Lopez

jennifer+lopez+grammys+2010 Grammy Gorgeous: Jennifer LopezJennifer Lopez dazzled at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards, wearing a dramatic silver Versace gown, and 70’s-inspired hair designed by stylist Robert Vetica.

Volume and texture were the hallmarks of the all-one-length, below the shoulder look.

Vetica started by applying Moroccanoil Treatment on wet hair and blow-dried it smooth, creating a middle part using a large round brush for volume. He then used a 1″ curling iron, curling each section, and dragging the curled spirals down. He started in the back, working towards the front of the head and lifting her hair away from the face.

After the curled hair set, Vetica finger-brushed the look and applied Moroccanoil Hydrating Styling Cream to hold the set and add additional texture. Finally he brushed out the hair, then backcombed underneath for maximum fullness and volume. Vetica finished with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray for free-moving, shine-enhancing hold.

Grammy Gorgeous: Miley Cyrus

miley+cyrus+grammys+2010 Grammy Gorgeous: Miley CyrusMiley Cyrus’ sexy textured style at the 52nd Annual Grammys was a perfect rocker chic look that played off her Herve Leger mini bandage dress and emphasized her long, natural waves.

“Miley has effortless style and taste,” said her stylist Scott Cunha, “and I always try to complement this by working with her natural hair texture, accentuating the waves and texture with a curling iron and a flat iron.”

To create the look, Cunha first applied Moroccanoil Treatment on damp hair for silky shine, smoothness and to eliminate frizz. He diffuser-dried her hair and then created a dual-textured look, first using a flat iron from the roots down, then a curling iron to wave the rest of the hair. Cunha applied Moroccanoil Glimmer Shine Spray to her hair to separate and define, then finished with Moroccanoil Luminous Hairspray for naturally moveable hold with shine.

Moroccanoil is sold in fine salons and spas.

Grammy Gorgeous: Nicole Kidman

nicole+kidnman+grammys Grammy Gorgeous: Nicole KidmanCelebrity hairdresser David Babaii created this romantic and elegant up-do to emphasize Nicole’s beautiful bone structure and Prada dress design.

He began by spraying her entire head with David Babaii for WildAid Bohemian Beach Spray, scrunching into her hair for body, lift and texture. Next, he dried her hair using a large round brush concentrating on the root area for maximum lift. Once dry, he divided tresses into 4 sections (top, sides and back leaving the nape area free). Using the H2Pro 300SE Styling Iron, he created “ribbon curls” by taking small “V” shaped partings. To achieve, wrap the hair around and inside the styling iron close to the scalp area and pull the iron down (similar to curling ribbon).

After curling the entire head, he applied some David Babaii for WildAid Hair Polish into his hands, using his fingers to loosen the curls from the mid-section to the ends only. This is done as to not disturb the texture at the top and crown area. Next, he carefully created a side part and again using his fingers to gently roll and twist hair. Pick up large sections as you continue to circle to the other side of the head and pin where needed. Finish into a messy bun and secure with additional pins. At the top area finger comb the bang area into a natural falling wave. For a long but natural lasting hold, he used David Babaii for WildAid Mise en Plis Light Styling Spray.

Grammy Gorgeous: Ciara

ciara+grammys Grammy Gorgeous: Ciara“For Ciara’s Grammy red carpet look, I prepped the face with shu uemura’s new UV Under Base Fluid in Medium Beige (goes on sale online February 11th at shuuemura-usa.com),” said makeup artist Yolanda Frederick. “I then followed up with shu uemura’s Nobara Cream Cover Stick foundation in 524 for a flawless golden finish. In order to complement Ciara’ stunning Givenchy ensemble, we decided to go with a flirty lash and lots of shu uemura’s Ultimate Mascara in Black to frame the eye.”

“For cheeks, I used shu uemura’s Glow On blush in M Amber 89 and highlighted with Lancôme’ Model Mocha Cream Shimmer for more drama! For a perfect lip, I lined ever so lightly with shu uemura’s Drawing Lip Pencil in Brown 710 then topped it off with shu uemura’s creamy nude Rouge Unlimited lipstick in BG 940M. I then wanted to highlight the center of the lip with a shimmery gloss, so I applied shu uemura’ Gloss Unlimited in BG 980N for that extra pop!”
