Shy, natural girls play the part with Steven Tai’s Spring 2014 beauty look
The clean, crisp look of Steven Tai’s future sport Spring 2014 collection was consistent with the hair and makeup for the show. Covergirl makeup pro, Amélie Ducharme, aimed to make girls appear “natural but still done”. First, skin was primed using Covergirl Clean Makeup Sensitive Skin ($8, well.ca) and blush was applied wider and lower than it normally would be to make models “look like they were shy,” explained Ducharme. Skin was then given a dewy finish using a rather unconventional skin product: lipgloss. Ducharme applied a pea-sized amount of Covergirl Wetslicks Lip Gloss in “Clear Radiance” ($7, well.ca) to the back of her hand and, using a sponge, dabbed it onto cheekbones and well as a little on the temple, nose, and top of the lip. A light sweep of mascara, and this fresh, spring look was complete.
The hair to complement Tai’s collection was all about texture. Pantene Pro-V consulting stylist, Justin German’s product of choice was Pantene Pro-V Silky Moisture Whip ($9, well.ca). Once the hair was prepped with the whip, quarter sections were braided, flat ironed, left to cool, and unbraided, to create easy, natural waves.
