Elle Magazines' Best in Show

SPRING 2010 | Hair and Makeup Trends


THE LOOK: “Blush adds life to the face,” says makeup artist Pat McGrath, who broke out the rouge backstage at Anna Sui.

SEEN AT: Anna Sui, Diane von Furstenberg, Gucci

DIY: Makeup artist James Kaliardos kept blush high on the cheek bones at DVF: “If it’s low on the face, it’s too old-fashioned.”

TRY WITH: Iridescence. “It brings out cheekbones and makes skin glisten, which is sexy,” Kaliardos says.

THE LOOK: In his 25-year career, hairstylist Guido “received the most compliments” about the messy side braids he did at Alexander Wang.

SEEN AT: Alexander Wang, Lacoste,Miu Miu

DIY: Hairstylist Dennis Lanni slathered on styling cream and plaited a high, side ponytail at Lacoste.

TRY WITH: Wings. Guido, Redken’s creative consultant, gave models’ hair lots of lift at Alexander Wang by adding “wings” at the temple: “Pull it out a little bit, then mold with hairspray and your fingers.”

THE LOOK: Models received an electric shock of color on their fingertips at Zac Posen, where manicurist Deborah Lippmann painted a hot melon shade onto nails.

SEEN AT: Chris Benz, Rag & Bone, Zac Posen

DIY: Lippmann lightly buffed nails and chose an “extra glossy” topcoat for more reflection.

TRY WITH: White base coat. A coat of bright white under yellow polish at Rag & Bone gave nails a fluorescent glow.
