For The Makeup…
SHOW: Joy Cioci
MAKEUP: Uzo for NARS
MODELS: Sam, Trump; Louise, Ford
HIGHLIGHTS: ”Strong and dewy” is so much more than the sum of its parts in this enthralling combination of orange-red lips and pinched cheeks that’s exponentially more stunning, thanks to incandescent skin.
IN THEIR WORDS:
“The bold color in Joy’s collection really inspired this strong and dewy look,” said Uzo, NARS International Lead Makeup Artist. “It’s a little ’80s, a little ’40s—and a little 2012. The clothes were the starting point here. I wanted to do a powerful, red-orange lip that spoke to the vibrancy of Joy’s spring colors.”
Before quenching skin with a lightweight moisturizer, Uzo pulled out the look’s secret tool— NARS Illuminator —and carefully highlighted points from temple to cheekbone, infusing an ethereal glow before applying foundation. Both lips and cheeks radiated with strategically blended Lipstick in Heat Wave. Using her finger, Uzo swiped a dot straight from the tube onto the apples of the cheeks and blended out toward the hairline. For a defined pout, lips were prepped with NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl before a finishing coat of Heat Wave.
WARDROBE…This season, Joy Cioci seems to be channeling the optimism of spring with the tradition of the Kentucky Derby. Lots of delicate ruffles, oversized floppy hats and gossamer chiffons complimented the neon palate. The extremes of delicate fabrics layered against a bright colors kept the collection seem free and adventurous.
Standout trend: Layered ruffles and casual draping relaxed the collection so that it was modern and not stuffy.
How to get the look: Use bright orange-reds on the lips and cheeks and naturals or nudes on the eyes. Skip the eyeliner and finish with a light layer of mascara. Set the hair in large rollers to get a nice light wave. Remember not to fuss with the curls because it will quickly turn your waves into a frizz craze.
Who makes it work: The proper Southern belle who isn’t too shy to show her bright side with color. Perhaps, we should call it Hilly gone wild.FOR THE NAILS….CND manicured creations are all the buzz this Fashion Week. At Joy Cioci,Candice Manacchio designed “Lucite Lace” manicures using clear tips with hand-detailed lattice work.
