GO NUDE!

How to find the perfect shade of Nude lipstick for your skintone. By Niki Metz

As we all saw during Spring fashion week, models were adorned in dewy skin, strong liner and that perfect shade of nude lipstick we all wish we could wear. But little did you know that most models were wearing different shades of nude most likely customized by a makeup artist holding a palette of 6 to 8 nudes backstage. Finding that perfect nude lipcolor is like finding that perfect pair of black pants. It will never go out of season and it will balance out any smokey eye.

HERE ARE 2 SIMPLE STEPS IN FINDING YOUR PERFECT SHADE OF NUDE. 1. PREP THE CANVAS

Yes, even your lips should be prepped especially before wearing a nude lipcolor. If your lips are dry and chapped you will end up looking as if you have not had a drink of water in 3 days. I love ex-foliating my lips with Sara Happ The Lip Scrub in Brown Sugar. To finish off always apply a lip moisturizer. My go to is Jouer Essential Lip Enhancer, I literally have one on my night stand, one in my purse and one in my car!

Jouer Hydrating Lipstick in Gigi Creamy True Nude $24

2. FIGURE OUT YOUR SKIN TONE

The best way to explain it is like this. No matter your shade(fair, light, medium, tan), if you have pink undertones you will want to find a nude lipstick that has shades of pink, and pinkybeige (also called a neutral). If you have olive undertones you want to find a nude lipstick that has shades of either pink, peach or beige. Never wear a nude lipstick that is lighter than you skin tone as this will wash you out. It’s that easy! So go out there ladies and be prepared to try on lots of different shades. Just remember this: If it looks pasty then it's too light, if it's orange it's too dark, and if it disappears it's the right color.

SEXY SPRING LUST-WORTHY SPRING HAIR TRENDS

Spring is about the rebirth and renewal of life, where everything around is fresh, flirty, and new. The 2015 spring hair trend reflects these fundamental elements of spring. At New York fashion week, designers paired their Spring trends with effortless, Romantic, “un-done” hair, allowing the natural beauty of the hair to effortlessly compliment these soft and feminine fashion trendsmarking this new season. One thing was very clear, start growing out your bobs because long hair is in.

HERE ARE SOME OF OUR FAVORITE LOOKS FROM THE SPRING 2015 FASHION SHOWS. 1. BARELY THERE WAVES AND BRAIDS Long Flirty hair compliments the Delicate floral prints that we saw in Marchesa, Sonia Rykiel, and Valentino (pictured).

2. HAIR ACCESSORIES Designers showed off their collection by also designing accessories for the hair. We saw headbands as ornate and sparkling as necklaces in the Botega Vaneta collection (pictured) and bracelet style accessories for a bun or ponytail in the Lavin, Celine and Dolce and Gabbana Fashions Shows.

3. UNDONE PONY Nothing communicates “effortless” more than hair literally “falling” out of a style. Creatures of the wild (as shown), Giles, and Stella Mccarthy paired un-done ponytails, braids, and buns with their 2015 Spring Collection.

BLOW BY

BLOW By Joseph Chase B

As a celebrity hair stylist, the question that I hear the most is how can I get my hair to look like a professional blow out at home? It seems impossible after the hairstylists magic touch but the truth is ladies, you can with the right product, tools, and patience. Of course it may take you a little longer than your "mane stylist" but with these few steps your hair will be on its way to bouncy voluminous utopia.

TOOLS NEEDED:

VOLUME SPRAY TRY: LIVING PROOF FULL ROOT LIFTING SPRAY, $25 www. sephora.com

CLIPS

TRY: DRYBAR HOLD ME HAIR CLIPS $16 www.sephora.com

HAIR SPRAY

TRY: ORIBE SUPERFINE HAIR SPRAY

BLOW DRYER

TRY: T3 FEATHERWEIGHT 2 www.sephora.com

HEAT PROTECTANT

TRY: ALTERNA BAMBOO SMOOTH ANTIBREAKAGE THERMAL PROTECTANT SPRAY $25 www.sephora.com

BRUSH

TRY: BOAR BRISTLE ROUND BRUSH Insider Tip: biza Boar Bristle Round Brushes work best for healthy blowouts.


1 2 3

After you have cleansed your hair, you will want to towel dry the excess moisture out of the hair. Brush through the hair to relieve any tangles. Apply heat protectant to the damp hair. My favorite is Oribe Supershine Light creme. It is light weight and also very moisturizing. Work this through the mid to ends of hair. Next use a volume spray at the roots, this will help give a nice lift that will last throughout the day. After product is applied, start to rough dry the hair using the blowdryer with nozzle and your hand. You want to remove about 80 percent of the moisture from the hair and use your hand to lift up at the root as you rough dry for extra body. once 80 percent of moisture has been removed, clip your hair up leaving a 2 x 2 inch section down on the side. Round brush this section starting underneath the hair till the top is dry then flip the round brush to top of the section to ensure that the whole section is 100 percent dry. Insider Tip: Always keep the nozzle pointing down the hair shaft towards the end of hair. Continue this till both sides of the head are dry. For added volume, in each individual section, Leave the hair around the round brush for 20-30 seconds to cool before moving on to next section.

4 5 6

Part your hair down the back to split into two sections. Then split these into smaller subsections, directing the hair to the side - round brushing each subsection.

Once the hair is completely dry, take a horse shoe section in the crown and over direct to the front round brushing back to the crown. Let the round brush cool for 20 seconds and remove.

Give your hair a good toss and Spray with Oribe Superfine Hairspray to complete your bouncy voluminous hair. Insider Tip: To take this look into nighttime mode, give your crown a good backcombing and smooth out with a Mason Pearson brush. You'll be on your way from day diva to night goddess in no time.


BRIGHT

Beaute eaute Box

EYES

For eyes, I love a cream or liquid shadow, applied to the entire lid and blending up and out. Keep it sheer and build for intensity to taste. One of my favorite colors for spring is light green. Cosmetic companies are doing various shades from mint to sea foam to bright tourquiose and jade.

}

GET CHEEKY

I love Giorgio Armani Eye Tint in Jade ($38 www. giorgioarmanibeauty-usa. com) - it’s a sheer, yet buildable, liquid, easy to apply and provides a beautiful pop of color on almost all complexions. Keep the rest of the face simple and neutral to avoid the look going clownish.

A simple way to experiment with pops of color is with a cheek and lip tints. I love these with a little tinted moisturizer or cc cream with a little mascara. They can be used as the perfect make up bridge on those days when you don't want to go through the whole make up routine but want to look fresh and polished. My new favorite is Dior Cheek and Lip Glow ($37 www.sephora.com) It comes in one universally flattering shade. And while we're talking cheeks, trade in your old blush for something bright and fresh like Yves Saint Laurent Blush Volupte in Baby Doll. ($47 www. yslbeautyus.com) Start with a sheer application concentrated on the apple of your cheek but be careful to blend the color up - this is not a contour color. Avoid the underside of the cheekbone.

COLOR GOES

POP! How To Add A Pop Of Color For Spring By Garret Gervais

As a make up artist, I always look forward to fall and spring, each brings about a new feeling in beauty, colors and textures deepen or lighten and with the onset of spring cosmetic companies are practically blooming with gorgeous color and luminous texture. Of course this can be scary as we move forward out our somber fall and winter neutrals and smokiness so I’d like to show you easy, “toe-dips” into spring beauty’s new brights and how to wear them in a way that gentle enough even for the most trepidatious.

Another fun way to introduce color is with swipe of colored liner across the lash line. It’s a fun and flirty treatment that really draws attention to the eye and because there’s so little product actually on the eye, don’t be afraid to go bolder in shade intensity. For this look try Lancôme Le Stylo Waterproof Liner in Vert Tuileries ($27 www. l a n c o m e - u s a . c o m ) Fo r extra pop of this beautiful turquoise shade use it lightly on the waterline.


CHERRY

LIPS For lips, it's all about tints and lip butters. Feel free to experiment with bright, colorful shades since these formulas are sheer and buildable and foolproof. I love Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Tint-In-Oil in Cherry My Cherie ($32 www. yslbeautyus.com) and for my inner drugstore make up junkie, try Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter in Sorbet ($8 www. amazon.com).

NAIL

IT

Another great (easy) way to add a color pop is with nail color. If the pale greens I mentioned earlier just seem too extreme to try on the face, Chanel Le Vernis in Paradisio ($27 www.chanel. com) on nails is fun way to wear a pale green.

TINTED LOVE

Tr a c y C u n n i n g h a m Celebrity colorist, Tracey Cunningham revolutionized the hair coloring industry. With her unique creations, artistic talents and fresh approach to color, Tracey has been instrumental in the beauty scene and has set the stage for the season's most lust-worthy trends. Modeliste celebrates this beautiful style icon and was privileged to chat with her on what is oh so chic and vibrant for Spring hair color styles.

M: WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION FROM? There is so much inspiration in magazines, fashion and everyday life. In terms of inspiration advice for my clients, one thing I always recommend to my clients is that they tear out page in magazines or pictures they are drawn and come in with that as a point of reference for their desired look.

M: WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED FOR WITH COLOR TRENDS IN 2015? With redheads, it’s so important to incorporate dimension into the hair. We’ll see this idea enhanced in a big way in 2015 with tones like Emma Stone’s vivacious red. To

maintain the vibrancy, ask your colorist for Redken’s new Carmin'R, which launched in salons in January. Carmin’R is a brand new technology addition to Chromatics, Shades EQ Cream and Color Fusion shades that provide an ultraintense, long-lasting red color for up to 40 shampoos*. Blondes will continue go even brighter. Jaime King’s color is so multi-dimensional and really flatters her coloring. It’s always important to match your hair to your skintone, especially with blondes, which is why I’m excited about Redken’s new Blonde Idol Professional Haircolor linelaunching this spring that is targeted to anyone seeking blonde tones from brunettes to redheads to. It allows your colorist to easily customize highlights with cool results no


matter what your level. Make sure your colorist is adding several shades to create this dimension. I always use Shades EQ for depth and to finalize the tone plus added shine. For brunettes, there is a trend toward a deep, monochromatic look that I achieve on my clients with Redken Chromatics new Ultra Rich shades, launching in salons this February. Jennifer Garner is a great example of this – it is a rich color but seemingly low-maintenance overall look. This monochromatic look is extremely popular in Europe. It is a very modern look that is perfect for the w inter to spring transition. This product line is what I use to create my cool brunettes that never turn orange and has intense shine.

M: MUST-HAVE HAIR PRODUCT. Without question, Redken Shades EQ gloss is my must-have product! I would never let a client leave my chair without a Shades EQ service, especially when they are heading to a red-carpet event. It’s a quick service that works wonders on hair to tone color, refresh highlights, correct uneven tones – it works magic on all of my clients. I also believe there is no better place to start your hair off on the right foot than in the shower, and Redken Color Extend Magnetics SulfateFree Hair Color Shampoo not only enriches your color but locks it in for added weeks!

M: HOW DO YOU CHANGE YOUR HAIR STYLING ROUTINE FROM WINTER TO SPRING?

M: HOW DO SPRING 2015'S COLOR TRENDS Spring is all about lightening up, including products used, haircolor and hair texture. One quick fix I love for spring COMPLIMENT THE FASHION TRENDS? The Spring/Summer 2015 fashion trends have a“cool” look that is both fresh and playful, mixing spontaneity with a look of ease. The season’shaircolor trends have this same nonchalant feel about them which we are enhancing with the help of launches like the new Blonde Idol Professional Haircolor line which adds highlights, an unexpected spark, to an existing and more uniform color.

M: WHERE DO YOU SEE THE FUTURE OF HAIR COLORING HEADING? Color and its trends are constantly changing and being updated – that is what makes it all so fun! It is a profession that allows your creativity and personality to really come through in your work which can also make it unpredictable.

that adds relaxed texture and quick volume is Redken’s wind blown 05 dry finishing spray. It adds airy texture and instant fullness with a soft-matte finish. Spring is also about restoring any lost moisture from the winter so while you’re in the salon next, pick up a deep moisturizing mask for home like Redken Diamond Oil Deep Facets Intensive Treatment. Just 10 minutes of deep conditioning a couple times a week is all it takes to keep your hair healthy. I also love the Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine. I put a few drops in the hair before blow-drying. It absorbs right in, never makes the hair feel greasy – only healthy, strong and shiny.

M: HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR M: HOW DO YOU SEE SOCIAL MEDIA PERSONAL STYLE? I love Phillip Lim and Twinkle by Wenlan because both of AFFECTING COLOR TRENDS? More and more of my clients are coming to me with pictures of celebrities or influencers they have seen on Instagram and asking for their exact look. Social media has the ability to create a huge impact among many people instantaneously and create an awareness about the newest trends in haircolor. It makes it easy for users who aren’t necessarily even searching for inspiration in the first place to stumble upon something unexpected and inspiring.

these designers are whimsical. I feel like they have great imaginations – and they’re affordable. If I were splurging, I’d have L’wren Scott dress me every day of my life! Even though I’m on my feet all day, I wear Lanvin balletflats and boots.

M: WHAT'S YOUR NUMBER ONE BEAUTY SECRET? Less is more is always my beauty philosophy.

M: HOW DO YOU USE SOCIAL MEDIA TO M: WHAT'S THE BEST ADVICE YOU'VE EVER INSPIRE YOU AND BUILD YOUR BRAND? I love Instagram. I post absolutely everything on it, from my RECEIVED? travels to my client looks and the formulas I used for each. Just being out there, being curious and following others that I am inspired by helps get the word out there about your capabilities. It is crucial in this day and age for salons to be on social media in some capacity! Follow me at @ Traceycunningham1!

The best beauty advice I was ever give was actually from Jennifer Lopez. She said “always use cream blush, it makes you look more youthful.” And she was right!

M: WHAT'S NEXT FOR YOU? Who knows! Hopefully a continued career doing what I love.

DAUGHTER-IN-LAW TO THE FASHION ICON DIANE VON FURSTENBERG, ALEXANDRA IS WELL VERSED IN THE WORLD OF FASHION AND HAS ELEGANTLY CREATED HER OWN MODERN AND CHIC COLLECTIONS RANGING FROM DINING TABLES AND DESKS TO ACCENT AND DECOR PIECES. Alexandra's gracious and radiant beauty are ever present in her design philosophy as we learned in our interview with the woman who once was instrumental in bring us the iconic wrap dress. MODELISTE: WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR INSPIRATION BEHIND THE LINE'S CREATION? AVF: I was inspired by diamonds and the faceted gem cuts. MODELISTE: HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR OWN PERSONAL STYLE. AVF: Less is more. Balancing design with functionality. MODELISTE: HOW IS YOUR OWN PERSONAL SENSE OF STYLE REFLECTED IN YOUR LINE? AVF: My belief in “less is more” translates to a zen like environment, which is the way I like to surround myself in my home.

MODELISTE: WHAT ARE 3 TIPS TO TRANSITION YOUR HOME DECOR FOR SPRING. AVF: Find a focal point in a room that inspires you. It can be an object, piece of art, or even something like an orchid or tree. Then add or subtract from there.

I love bringing nature indoors, especially in the Spring with all the flowers blooming and fruits ready to harvest. When doing so, I find it best to keep it simple. One type of flower in a beautiful vase, or a bowl of all one fruit, conveys a feeling of sophisticated ease, as well as keeping it easy to do! Have fun and pump up the color in the Spring. It’s a time of new beginnings, and a great time to bring something fresh into your home. Pillows, bowls, throws, and other home accessories are great and easy ways to bring colors to match the season. In Spring, clean fresh colors are the way to go. MODELISTE: WHAT ARE YOUR ULTIMATE MUSTHAVES FROM YOUR SPRING COLLECTION? AVF: The new AVF Limited Edition Luxe Bowl in one of our beautiful bright colors on your kitchen island. Simply fill it with a bowl of lemons or limes, and you have a beautiful focal point, with the perfect splash of color. MODELISTE: WHAT WAS THE BEST DESIGN ADVICE ANYONE HAS GIVEN YOU?

SHOP VINTAGE Some of my best finds are either from vintage or thrift stores and won't cost you too much. Take the extra time and DIG!

ACCESSORIES SEAL THE DEAL For me a look is brought to the next level when you add your favorite jewelry, accessories, and belts to finalize your look. Don't be afraid to play with the combinations you can create.

5

TOP IT OFF

I know everyday isn't a good hair day, for me when I have a bad hair day I always add a black leather hat or a wide brim hat to take attention off the craziness on top. The choices are endless!

2

DON'T BE AFRAID TO SPEND ON A GREAT FIND

If you find a great piece that you know you will get multiple uses out of, don't be afraid to spend a little extra on it. I realized it's worth the extra cash for quality, style, and overall appeal.

4

ALL ABOUT THE TUCK & CUFF

Sometimes a simple tuck of your shirt or cuff in your jeans will enhance your look for your body type. Take the extra time to smooth out your tucks as well as pulling your tuck to the back to slim out your midsection. A cuff to your sleeve will enhance your arms and a tuck to your favorite denim will sometime help lengthen you to make you look taller.


6

LET'S PLAY DRESS UP

Ways I find a look is by what I'm inspired by or who I wanna be that day. Don't be afraid to embody a look from head to toe. Find your theme such as Glam, Boho, Goth, or Sleek and run with it. Think of who you are going to be and be it, Dress up is all in fun.

SHOE GAME

7

LAYER IT UP

Something I always enjoy is layering my clothing. I always love to throw on a jacket or sweater to enhance a look. You can even layer several rings or necklaces to give the look a different vibe.

CLEAN IS CLEAN

Basics always win, Don't be afraid to keep a look strong and clean with The Minimalist approach. I always love a plain tee with jeans, simple is always effective.

Invest in shoes that can go with several looks. People always tend to stare at your feet, make sure you have some shoes that can show off your #SHOEGAME. My favorites are sleek black boot, a pair of Nike's, or detailed dress shoe. Some things that can amp your shoe game is shoe accessory, find some chains, straps, and cool laces to pick up a look.

10

C-O-N-F-I-D-E-N-C-E The number one secret for me is Confidence. Confidence goes far and makes people believe in your look. Even if you know your look isn't all that, you can trick everyone by owning your look. Confidence in your clothing is Sexy, Stylish, and Commanding!
