Runway Beauty: Chicly Distressed at Rag & Bone

Runway Beauty: Chicly Distressed at Rag & Bone


"This look is for the girl who has been on a journey — her makeup's rosy but worn in," said Gucci Westman, Revlon's lead makeup artist for the show (and wife of the Rag & Bone line's co-designer, David Neville). "She would have met Peter Lindbergh somewhere in the '80s."

To execute this luxe-yet-laid-back look, keep the skin clean, apply highlighter along the cheekbones and bridge of your nose, and sparingly apply powder. "You still want to see the skin show through," noted Westman. Add emphasis to the brows by brushing on Elizabeth Arden 8-Hour Cream, followed by hairspray. "Using a squirrel brush to apply the cream and hairspray will prevent the brows from looking matted down," she explained.

Pull any eye makeup under the lower lashline — Westman used the Revlon Maltese palette — to give the eyes a somber effect, and stick to one coat of nude lipstick. The shade used here was specially created for Fashion's Night Out, NYC's annual city-wide celebration, and was aptly named Fashion's Night Pout. Unfortunately it's not available for sale — but Revlon's Colorburst Lipstick in Soft Nude is a close match.

For hair, Guido Palau, backstage veteran and Redken's lead stylist for the show, created a mussed-up updo based around a black headband from American Apparel. "The band gives the hair structure, so the updo can be as disheveled as you like," he said. The trick is to wet hair, put the headband on, and then use U-pins to secure the hair. "I'm not trying to create a bun or a chignon — I'm just trying to keep the hair up," Palau explained. To up the full ocean-spray effect, Palau spritzed loose strands with water until the models hit the runway.
