NYBFW Fall 2018 Beauty Recap: Pretty Gorgeous
AS REPORTED BY DANA WOOD, BEAUTY DIRECTOR
At the most recent round of New York shows, there was a little something for everyone: sleek, romantic – even a bit sexy. Brides of all styles, start those hair and makeup mood boards!
ANNE BARGE: A Pony Tale
Center-parted and ever-so-slightly poufy, the low beribboned ponies at Anne Barge were a girly counterpart to cherry-red lips.
Hair & Makeup: Mar R
BERTA: Beachy Keen
Tawny skin, loose ringlets, peach-toned eyes and cheeks: if that doesn’t say “beach beauty,” we don’t know what does.
Hair: Bare Alchemy
Makeup: Bank Natadanai
FRANCESCA MIRANDA: Romantic Notions
Elaborate and undone. It’s not easy to walk a tightrope between those two vibes, but the softly braided chignons at Francesca Miranda managed to do just that.
Hair & Makeup: José Amaris
INES DI SANTO: Girls With Pearls
High and mighty, and dotted with randomly placed pearls, hair god Peter Gray’s updos for Ines di Santo were textured and super-hip. Also cool: The smudgy undereye shadow.
Hair: Peter Gray
Makeup: Tia Hebron for Bobbi Brown
JUSTIN ALEXANDER: Silver Sleek
The Bridal Council’s very own Yves Durif did the hair honors for Justin Alexander, and the result was a sleek, chic style wrapped in silver. Modern and edgy, a win-win.
Hair: Yves Durif
Makeup: Fawn Monique for Aveda
MONIQUE LHUILLIER: Highlight(er) of the Week
In the right hands (i.e., makeup artist Caroline Dali), highlighter dabbed on chin, cheeks and forehead can add that lit-from-within glow every bride covets.
Hair: Rodney Cutler for Redken
Makeup: Caroline Dali for Maybelline New York
NAEEM KHAN: Berry Good
When lips are the absolute focal point of the face, it’s helpful if they feature a truly scrumptious shade of berry.
Hair: Jon Reyman for Salon Pro Rx
Makeup: Chika Chan and Cheve Chan for Make-Up Pro
REEM ACRA: Ethereal Innocence
Soft ringlets, baby’s breath crowns and rosy cheeks all converged at Reem Acra, making for an ethereal, fairy-tale take on the modern bride.
Hair: Brian Buenaventura for Management Artists and Cutler Team
Makeup: Cassandra Garcia for Bobbi Brown
