Backstage Beauty: @Osklen Spring 2015 Show #livingAveda

Art, nature, and human body were the underlying themes at Osklen. Inspired from an art gallery in Brazil, the line included numbers made from organic silk and straw for a very raw feeling. Also, the designer made rain forest like prints projected onto fabrics creating special designed shorts and jumpsuits. Pertruding a tropical vibe with a minimalistic sense this line made me resort ready.

Backstage I spoke with Aveda specialists about the hair look in which they said, “it was a collaboration with creative director Oskar Metsavaht to achieve a natural angel-like look.” To do this they used Aveda Air Control Hairspray, Volumizing tonic spray, and Pure Abundance style prep serum. They polished the look with custom headbands and left out from strands to add a certain movement as the models walked down the runway.

 

The inspiration for the makeup comes from Oskars vision of, “an elegant effortless woman crosses from the tropical forest to a city through a magical gate.” This was achieved by adding MAC Natural Radiance to the temples, chin and nose for a natural glowing look. Skin was then concealed with MAC Studio Finish concealer. On the eyes artists used, MAC Urbanist and Power Player eyeshadows. A light amount of eye gloss was ran across the brows and Secret Admirer by MAC was added to the lips.

Changes…Classic Red to Smokey Dark Lips @MacCosmetics

“Stepping onto a brand-new path is difficult, but not more difficult than remaining in a situation, which is not nurturing to the whole woman.”- Maya Angelou

I’ve always, ALWAYS worn red lipstick, some might say that I live in red lipstick. Wake up in the morning, brush my teeth, put on red lipstick. Going to the doctor? Red lipstick. Going to the gym? Red lipstick. You catch my point. In the rare occasssion that I’m not wearing red lipstick, I might be wearing a shade of pink… bright pink. However, I seem to have lost the “love” I had for red lipstick… it doesn’t give me that warm happy feeling anymore. I’m not sure if it’s the change in season, or because I’ve made some major changes in my life, but I just don’t feel the same way about it anymore. My new love? A dark lip, ooh yes, I loves me a dark sexy lip.

My first attempt at a dark lip… looking well evil lol

I used to stay away from dark lipsticks cause I thought they made me look me mean, and I found that anytime I attempted to wear a dark lipstick, my mood changed… and not for the better.

Next attempt, totally happy 🙂

However, things done changed, and now I can’t get enough of wearing dark lipstick. There’s something strong and sexy about it, and I totally dig it!

My new FAVES! I call them Kate (left- from the Kate Moss Lipstick Collection by Rimmel) and Smokey (right- by MAC) 🙂

Have you changed your lip colour lately? Were you influenced by the change of season, or simply cause you were bored and needed something different?

stay pretty 🙂
