Betsey Johnson Gives Us a Pink Spin on '70s Beauty
Love was in the air backstage at Betsey Johnson's Autumn/Winter 2014 show, where the beauty look was superflirty and feminine, with a bit of a '70s throwback. Sarah Lucero, lead makeup artist for Stila, created a makeup palette that was heavy on the pinks. Eyes were done by layering Stila Smudge Stick Eyeliner (£13) in Stingray, Deep Fuchsia, and Deep Burgundy. Lips were high-gloss and bright. To get the look, Lucero first applied Stila Color Balm Lipstick in Betsey (£16) before adding a healthy swipe of Stila Silk Shimmer Gloss in Kitten (£15).
Lead hairstylist Michael Dueñas for Schwarzkopf Professional created a long, luxurious hairstyle that was full of volume and bouncing waves, looking like a heightened version of something you'd see in American Hustle. "Think Brigitte Bardot meets modern-day rock and roll," he said. He used a mix of products to create grip, including Osis+ Session Label Salt Spray and Osis+ Glamour Queen. Dueñas then barrel-curled the hair.
Lead nail artist Danielle Candido for Morgan Taylor Nails created a neon manicure with gold foil. West Coast Cool by Morgan Taylor was painted on top, while the underneath of the nails were painted with Bright Side. If the '70s are actually making a comeback, we're welcoming them with open arms.
