At Erickson Beamon, the beauty inspiration was all about ’60s black and white photography, only done in a seriously over-the-top way. Lead makeup artist Tina Turnbow for NYX said, “I am such a huge fan of the ’60s, so we were just thinking about this gorgeous, expressive, huge eye and with the inspiration of those beautiful black and white pictures.” To get the eye look, she used the brand’s Jumbo Eye Pencils in black and white to draw dramatic shapes and then a smudging brush to diffuse and create the shadowy effect. To contrast with the mono-chromatic eye makeup, Turnbow added a “shot of crisp coraly-red” to the lips.

The Vibe: Retro structure. At yesterday’s Lela Rose show, even though the models all looked like they had stepped out of the 1940’s, the looks were based on modern structures. The designs were inspired by the structures of Spanish architect, Santiago Calatrava, who is currently working on the new World Trade Transportation Hub in NYC. Celebrity stylist Ted Gibson said he wanted to bring some of that structure to the hair. He described the hairstyle he created as “the new Gibson girl.” He said, "We’ve created something that I think is really something that a girl can do at home. It’s kind of like the new answer to the braid. The twist is the new braid." To create, Gibson blew out the models’ hair for volume at the top and swept all the hair to one side. He advised that the key is to secure with an elastic about five or six inches from the scalp.Twist the hair into itself and pin.
