Bec & Bridge's Summer-Inspired Runway Look Was Vacay Beauty Goals
While we can't claim to be suffering through an unbearable winter (the likes of which we've only seen beyond the wall of late), we can say that peeping the upcoming Resort collections c/o Fashion Week Australia has been difficult just the same. Each show has brought with it seasonal beauty looks we can't yet get in on—from bronzed skin to humidity-softened hair—and impatient beauty editors that we are, we don't like waiting to get amongst.
There was festival-inspired skin at By Johnny, "Saint-Tropez glamour" at Rebecca Vallance, and this afternoon Bec & Bridge took us with them on an Indian summer vacay. Both hair and makeup were stunning, and together, they had us itching to jet off to the Andaman Islands. Want to come with?
Kellie Stratton for MAC described the stunning faces backstage as effortlessly sexy: "When I think of India, I think of kajal so I wanted to add a little bit of smoulder but in a cool, subtle way." The cool-girl element came via a barely-there slick of gold glitter stroked underneath the eyes. "We've used glittery pigment mixed with Mixing Medium Eyeliner ($34), and applied it with a really skinny brush, so it's fine and beautiful," she said.
Hair director Alan White used Redken products to pull together one of the most covetable and humidity-proof styles we've seen this week. (Warm weather may seem an age away, but we promise this will be important again come September.) "If you can imagine the girls are in Southern India, so it's hot and there's humidity. They've done their own hair but it still has a polish to it—it's not just a disheveled updo." White used a combo of Diamond Oil ($50), Guts ($33) and Wind Blown ($33), to give their ponytails moisture, polish and natural volume without it looking wet or sticky. Lesson learned? Embrace the effects of humidity and you won't have to battle it endlessly.
