Mercedes-Benz Spring/Summer 2015 Fashion Week: Yigal Azrouel

Yigal Azrouel has a very precise process, starting with a fabric idea and then building color and mood into the collection. Silk, open arm sleeve slits and Palm tree leaves walked the runway, all because Yigal believes palm leaves can relate to a woman’s natural beauty.

James Precis for Bumble and bumble covered the hair with a new styling product (unannounced name, launching in Spring 2015) for distinctive texture. Depending where the natural part of the hair falls, run fingers all through the hair. Dividing the hair into two, twist both sections and tie or clip to hold the twists. After letting the hair air dry, remove clips and let hair come down for organic waves.

For nails, Rita Remark for Essie compiled a very low key Hawaiin vibe, rubbing off on the sandy beaches and the gloss of the ocean. This sheer nail had Essie’s “Ridge Filling Base Coat” applied, then a single coat of “Au Natural”, a single coat of “Mademoiselle” and finished with “Good to Go Top Coat.”

Benjamin Puckey for NYX said, “We wanted to create a look as if the woman naturally just got out of the sea and put on very minimal makeup.” He used NYX HD Studio Foundation, Blotting Powder, HD Concealer for the face and the eyes, he applied Control Freak, Lush Lash Mascara (Stacked), Baked Shadow (Euphorie & Ambroisie) and Wonder Pencil (medium) to finish the look. He added a touch of Soft Matte Lip Cream (Athens), which is a matte finish that dries down to the right texture. Puckey says it’s important to remember to tone down on the glossy lips because it’s all about the glowing skin.
