NYFW S2015 – NATURAL GLOW AT RAG & BONE

Rag__Bone_spring_2015_450_676_s_c1

“I wanted to create a look that was bold, but still looked soft and natural. I was inspired by the iconic supermodels of the ’90s and the great structure of their brows. I kept the makeup very pure, adding just a touch of natural flush to the lips by mixing two lip products together, and I used a brow pencil to create subtle freckles and a dramatic brow to top the whole look off.”—Gucci Westman, global artistic director for Revlon.

The fresh face has made an appearance yet again at Rag & Bone for the Spring/Summer season. For this effortlessly chic look, Gucci Westman created a fresh, feminine face enhancing natural skin tons by illuminating the cheeks for a look that was all about the glow and shine.

#GETTHELOOK

FACE

The skin was a dewy look, which called for lots of moisture. To achieve this look, it’s best to moisturize your skin before application of your foundation. If your moisturizer contains light reflecting elements or luminous properties, even better! Then apply your foundation using a large buffing brush (Brush Blender by Glo Minerals is great for this) Take your concealer (1-2 shades lighter than your skin tone) apply it to the centre of the face and under the eyes. Blend with the same buffing brush in a circular motion. Then, take a nude-pink blush; apply to the apples of your cheeks, brushing outwards to the hairline.

EYES

Use a chocolate brown liner and brush towards the top of your lash line, smudging it with your finger to blend. Then, apply two coats of the mascara of your choice (we recommend Lashes to Die for by Peter Thomas Roth) Lastly, the brows were “groomed and brushed up, so they felt expensive”

 LIPS

For the lips, a rosy nude, with a slight hint of brown is best. Line the lips, and then fill in with lipstick. Add a bit of gloss to the center of your bottom lip for a bit of shine.

“This look is effortless, aspirational and chic, while still feeling luxurious and cool” says Westman.

KISS AND TELL: BOLD BURGUNDY LIPSTICK

tumblr_m7bg9aa4iX1rn43o3o1_500

I’m the first to admit that I—like a lot of woman – am guilty of staying in the classic red and pink lipstick zone. Who can blame us? It’s safe. We know what undertones work with our complexion and we have our go-to shades. That being said, we’ve spotted nearly every star in Hollywood wearing a version of this trend (glossy, matte and stains) which means it actually can work for all women. We’re currently obsessed with this trend and decided to give it a try. When going for this trend, its important to experiment with different shades on the wine spectrum, then play with intensity by blotting and layering.

For Fair skin I recommend opting for deep red or rich blueberry hues. Women with olive or medium complexion should choose red-based maroon shades, which will warm the gold and yellow tones in your skin. Ladies with darker complexion should venture into the blue-based purples. For more power to the burgundy pout, add some gloss. Just be sure to blot well to avoid bleeding outside the lip lines.

RETURN OF THE BRAID

braids-trend

Braids, braids, braids—we can’t get enough of them. Fashion Week is only halfway through, and we’re already beauty trend spotting for the Spring 2015 season. The hair trend we’re really excited about is the return of the braid. We’ve seen it in past seasons, but when it came to the runways in New York City, it was all about making it your own. Not only are these braids extremely cool to look at, but they work for almost any occasion from work, to a night out, to a wedding. One thing about the fishtail braid, though, is that so many girls avoid it altogether because they think it’s a challenge. If you know how to do a basic braid, you can learn the fishtail and herringbone braid (and they shouldn’t be too perfect, anyway!)

Despite the classy, complicated look, it’s actually super-easy and can be accomplished in four easy steps.

1. Start by taking all of your hair and dividing it into two equally-sized halves. It’s easiest for beginners to start by using an elastic at the base of the braid as you would a ponytail.

2. Take a small section of hair from the right side and bring it over to the left, combining them together. Always take the strands from the underside of the section, then place them in the front of the opposite section.

3. Take a small section of hair, the same size as the last, from the left side, and combine it with the hair on the right.

4. Repeat the process until you reach the ends of your hair, then finish with a hair tie. Spritz with a bit of hairspray to keep loose hairs in place, and rock your herringbone braid all day long.

Tutorial Tuesday – Tousled Fishtail Braid

TT-fishtailtousleWe can’t help it. We are in love with fishtail braids this summer!

We wanted to update our fishtail braid tutorial. This summer, a side fishtail braid that has a messy look matches almost any outfit and feel.

You will need:

  • 1 Pony Tail
  • 1 Plastic/Rubber Elastic

Instructions:

Step 1: Start off with textured hair. Next day hair works best but you can also apply a hair texturizer. For our assistant, we did a side part and began the braid in the direction of the part.

Step 2: Add the elastic to keep the hair in one place.

Step 3: Split the hair into two sections with hair hands.

Step 4: Grab hair from one side of section 1. To give the fishtail look, grab the hair from the back of section 1.

Step 5: Cross over the hair grabbed in Step 4 to section 2 of your hair.

 

Step 6 & 7: Repeat but this time you will grab hair from the second section of your hair and cross it over to the first.

Step 8: Continue this process alternating from section 1 to section 2 until you are done. Tie the end of the braid with a ponytail.

Step 9: Cut the elastic carefully with scissors. Make sure to not cut strands of your hair!

Step 10: To add to the tousled look, pull lightly on the fishtail braid from top to bottom.

Tutorial Tuesday – Fishtail Twist

TT-fishtailtwistThis summer, we are a fan of all things braided for hairstyles. This one in particular is great for any situation – summer party, summer wedding (can you tell we are loving this for summer?).

NOTE: We suggest using clear elastics for a discreet look.

Instructions:

Step 1: Blow dry and straighten your hair. For a beachy look, add curls and waves.

Step 2: Take two sections above each ear and twist them backward.

Step 3: Once the two sections meet, secure the two strands with an elastic.

Step 4: Create a fishtail braid with the hair from the two twisted sections. To make sure the braid stays put, use a thin hair elastic at the end. (If you need a fishtail braid tutorial, follow these instructions.) Remove the first elastic.

Step 5: Spritz a shine spray and hairspray so your style lasts all night.

Tutorial Tuesday – Burn Relief

We recently tackled this summer’s bandit – sunburns – what it can cause. For serious burns that sting, try this remedy.

You will need:

  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Water
  • 100% Pure Coconut Oil
  • Old T- Shirt
  • Spray Bottle/Washcloth

TT-burnrelief

Instructions:

Note: The apple cider portion can be done at any point during the day for pain relief. The oil portion should be done before bed.

Step 1: To address the pain, mix ¼ of apple cider vinegar and 1 cup of cold water in a spray bottle or bowl. Shake the bottle or mix the two liquids really well.

Step 2: Spray it liberally over your sunburned skin. If using a washcloth, dampen the washcloth with the mixture and dab it on. Let it dry.

Step 3: After the apple cider vinegar and water mixture has dried, use your fingers to apply the coconut oil. The coconut oil will begin to melt as you rub it gently on your sunburned skin. Use a paper towel to catch the falling drops. The oil will help your skin heal but needs time for absorption, thus this should be done before bedtime. To avoid getting your bed sheets oiled up, wear an old t-shirt and/or old sweatpants to bed.

This DIY tutorial can be done daily until your skin recovers.

Remember to always apply SPF before sun exposure whether it be a run in the park, the beach or errands.

Stay beautiful!

Tutorial Tuesday – Bold Brows Tutorial

Nothing is more expressive than the expressions coming from your face. Your eyes, mouth and eyebrows all contribute to expressing happiness, frustration and sadness. (Of course, this isn’t the full range of emotions we feel but just to name a few.)

Eyebrows are one of our favorite facial features. The ability to frame the face and the monumental change that freshly groomed brows can bring is astonishing. The shape, the length of your brow and the boldness can make a huge difference on your look.

Bold brows are a welcomed beauty statement and trend. We don’t mean for you to plaster pencil liner or brow shadows onto them, but we do suggest to go for defined and bold brows.

This bold brow tutorial walks you through the important tips of creating bold brows with a brow pencil without going overboard in the shading.

TT-boldbrows

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You will need:

  • Brow Pencil
  • Spoolie/Brush

(A two-in-one brow pencil liner will come in handy. i.e. TIGI Cosmetics Brow Pencil)

STEP 1: Begin with your natural brows. Make sure to tweeze stray hairs and brush brows with a spoolie.

STEP 2: Start underneath the eyebrow and create a fine line. You want to follow your eyebrow’s shape until the end of your brow.

STEP 3: Locate the highest point of your brow and connect the line to the line from STEP 2. Fill in that space.

STEP 4: Fill in the rest of the brow with light strokes. You don’t want to press down hard with the brow pencil.

STEP 5: To soften the look, brush through using an eyebrow brush or spoolie.

STEP 6: Repeat on the other brow and enjoy!
