Without a doubt, Tracy Reese is definitely one of my favorite designers. She knows the shades that complement my skin tone so beautifully, and the fit that makes my body look like a Kim Kardashian body double. Recently I got the chance to watch the backstage beauty at Tracy Reese. The looks that were created from the hair to the makeup to the nails, were outrageous-typical of Ms. Reese.
We'll start with the hair:
Jeanie Syphy -the head stylist tells beautylogic that she wanted to create the not so perfect curl. She used a 1 inch curling Iron, wrapped hair around 1 inch barrel then clamped it which gave a ridge between the curls, making it edgy-romantic.
She then pulled the hair in a ponytail, giving the hair a nice round shape on the top. She did leave some parts straight so that the look wouldn't look perfect, but the curls cascaded over the straight part. Products used were Tresemme Thermal Variations spray to set hair and Tresemme 24 hour finishing spray because although it holds the curl it doesn't make the hair stiff.
The makeup was fantastic. Lead Maybelline makeup artist Charlene Wasson tell us all about the look.
Tracy wanted the models to have a masculine/feminine look and wanted to keep it simple. She didn't want the makeup to upstage the collection. So they decided on a stunning sparkly smoky eye.
The eyestudio quad was used to create the look with the brown on the lid. I just purchased this quad and can't wait to use it. (That model's name is Ariel Meredith. She is so stunning. I was kind of in awe of her beauty)
My favorite mascara Lash Stiletto Voluptuous was used to give the lashes their killer long length and volume.
On the cheeks and around the top eye area, Charlene used Maybelline Pink Illuminator. On the lips she used Maybelline Color Sensational in Toffee which is a gorgeous caramel nude.
Now let's get to the nails. They were so hot!
They were full cover nails with a lace overlay-that Tracy was actually using in her collection. Hot to death!
Tomorrow I'll be reviewing my favorite show/backstage beauty which was Bebe Kim Kardashian and we spoke to Kim personally about the collection. We'll also be reviewing Jill Stuart Hair.
