NYFW Beauty How To: 3.1 Phillip Lim’s Punk Red Lip

During a season that’s so far been filled with natural-looking lips, it’s refreshing to see a pop of lively color, as we did at 3.1 Phillip Lim’s fall 2015 show on Monday.  “The clothes were kind of like modern punk,” said Francelle Daly, working for NARS. ” They reminded me of my old oxblood Doc Martens—I wanted that to be the color of the lips.” With the iconic footwear in mind, Daly then set out to create a look that was somewhere between “raw and refined.” The rawness entered into the picture via tinted moisturizer that mimicked “real skin,” while the semimatte lip added the polish.  In general, brick red lips appear to be the one beauty trend makeup artists have fallen in love with this season. At Donna Karen, Charlotte Tilbury combined two shine-free tubes from MAC (Spirit and Verve), before dabbing them onto catwalkers’ mouths and cheeks for a tawny flush.

 

As for the hair, lead stylist Paul Hanlon for Bumble and bumble told WWD that he drew inspiration from old editorials by Corinne Day, who was famous for her work with Kate Moss and Rosemary Ferguson.  ”It’s not grungy” though, explains Hanlon.  ”It’s still clean. The style is just a bit broken and the hair doesn’t really matter. Basically, she washed her hair the night before and then she came to the shoot.” Using four key products including Prep spray, Thickening Hairspray, Does It All Styling Spray and Brilliantine, Hanlon began by parting the hair down the middle to remove some of the weight. Next, he dried 80% of the hair, leaving it slightly wet, before setting it with a flatiron.  To add shine, Hanlon also flatironed the top to make the hair skinny, and went over it again to create light waves.  “It’s girls like Daria Werbowy and Freja Beha Erichsen who walk in and their hair is like this,” he told WWD.  Count us in!

Party Pics: Purple Magazine, Rag & Bone and More Fete NYFW Day 5

New York Fashion Week may be coming to a close this week, but you would never know by the looks of last night’s social scene. At the Standard East Village hotel, Purple magazine joined forces with its Spring 2015 cover girl Kim Gordon and Rag & Bone’s Marcus Wainwright and David Neville to host a French blowout of epic proportions.  It all began unknowingly with a dinner at the hotel’s eatery, Narcissa, where guests including EIC Oliver Zahm, Natasha Lyonne, Uma Thurman and Peter Lindberg mingled and chatted over a spread of chicken, sea bass and numerous bottles of wine.  Immediately following the dinner, Zahm and his guests made their way to the hotel’s underground club scene, where models Bella Hadid, Eniko Mihalik, Ashley Smith, Jessica Hart and Edie Campbell danced the night away as Zahm stood by and snapped his signature black and white party portraits.
