The Fenty Beauty artistry team which was spearheaded by global makeup artists Priscilla Ono and Hector Espinal chose to focus on vibrant interpretations of emotions. This pointed to the hits of color which appeared on each model’s eyes. Additionally, the looks featured smooth, radiant skin with intense eye makeup inspired by stained-glass. To attain this, two of the key products utilized were the Match Stix Shimmer Skinstick in “Chili Mango” and the Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer in “Diamond Milk.”
Opening Ceremony teamed up with the critically acclaimed drag queen Sasha Velour to present its Spring 2019 collections titled, “The Gift of Showz.” For this live spectacle, the makeup looks were brought to life by backstage makeup artist Thomas de Kluyver for Maybelline New York while hair was helmed by Holli Smith for Oribe. Vogue reports that Kluyver chose to focus on looks inspired largely by drag makeup interpreted for the present. Pro-tip to snag a striking lip color — Kluyver was spotted using Maybelline New York SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick.
LaQuan Smith’s SS19 presentation featured ultra-glam beehives and exaggerated wing eyeliner. The makeup which was brought to life by Maybelline also included fresh-faced looks. In the realm of hair, the hair stylists added clip-in extensions and also utilized flat irons to get the model’s hair ultra-straight. Notably, miniature combs with tiny teeth were also used to attain the mini side bangs left out alongside the vintage beehives.
The over the top hairstyles at the Rodarte SS19 show were executed under the leadership of international hairstylist Odile Gilbert. Described as “sophisticated” and “whimsical,” the looks utilized natural flowers as the centerpiece. Odile used numerous TRESemmé products to add extra volume, one of the key products used to was the Fresh & Clean Dry Shampoo. While the TRES TWO Extra Hold Mousse was used to add additional body and volume. For makeup, the artists chose to emphasize the eyes with bright highlighter eyeshadow hues including yellow, bright pink and teal.
Ronnie Fieg‘s imagination reached wild proportions for KITH’s multi-showcase. The FW18 presentation featured mostly natural beauty looks. Hair was also kept relatively natural. Aleali May was spotted getting a fresh blow out, which is her signature hairstyle. For the Versace portion of the show, models’ hair received slick, pulled back styles while their eyes were painted with dark black eyeliner which created a grungy winged style.
For this black-tie event, celebrity hairstylist Ursula Stephen led the backstage hair production. Her selected looks for the evening assisted with placing emphasis on the multicultural designers of the night — Kimberly Goldson, Felisha Noel and Undra Celeste Duncan. Goldson’s models received braids which were attained after a fresh blow out utilizing TRESemmé’s Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray with synthetic hair. Each of Noel’s selected models received glitzy hair clips and headbands topped off by TRESemmé’s Compressed Micro-Mist Spray in Level 4. While Duncan’s models donned blunt bob wigs featuring dramatic volume which was held together by the aforementioned spray in Level 4.
