Derek Lam SS16G Get The Look


HAIR:  Orlando Pita for PHYTO Paris/BaByliss Pro USA

INSPIRATION:  The hair complements the Spring/Summer 2015 Collection – a little undone with texture and ease.


Step 1: Part the hair to the side (a bit off center or how the hair naturally falls).

Step 2: To prep the hair, add 1-2 pumps of PHYTO PHYTOKeratine Extreme Exceptional Cream to hair. Blow dry with the new BaBylissPRO Rapido. Do not brush.

Step 3: Straighten hair with BaBylissPRO® Nano Titanium™ 1” Ultra-Thin Flatiron.

Step 4: Then, using the BaBylissPRO® Nano Titanium™ 1” Spring Curling Iron, wrap hair once around the barrel, then pull the iron down to create a wave without volume. Rake the hair back and create a top section with partings on either side.

Step 5: Combine two oils: PHYTO Huile Supreme Rich Smoothing Oil and PHYTO Huile Soyeuse Lightweight Hydrating Oil. Twist hair into a bun at the crown. Let the hair set for ten minutes then un-do bun. Tousle and run fingers through hair to create a piecey, un-coiffed look.

Step 6: Finish with PHYTO Professional Phytolaque Soie Light Hold Hairspray for shine and control.

Exclusive ‘On The Runway with Estée Lauder Fall 2013: Get the look

Tom Pecheux for Estée Lauder created the new The Metallics Pure Color Collection, which launched at the beginning of August. Taking a look behind-the-scenes at the Derek Lam Fall 2013 Show, beautynistas are treated to an exclusive view of one of the season’s most exciting makeup lines and looks, and the full on how-to! Does a Wednesday get any better?

Let’s begin with the sexy, new, limited-edition The Metallics Pure Color Collection from Estée Lauder. The fall 2013 collection is a combination of the high reflective shine and intense color for eyes, lips and nails, which can be applied for a soft and elegant look or a smash bold intensely sexy look. The collection includes Pure Color Instant Intense EyeShadow Trios ($36) in eight different palettes, Pure Color High Intensity Lip Lacquer ($25) in 18 different hues, and Pure Color Vivid Shine Nail Lacquer by Jin Soon Choi for Estée Lauder ($20) in 8 shades.

Featured in this how-to is Estée Lauder Global Spokesmodel, Liu Wen. Her look is so enchanting, yet so achievable. How to Get the Beauty Look Created by Tom Pecheux for the Derek Lam Fall 2013 Show:

  • Start with Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum Infusion applied under eye area for a beautiful, luminous look.
  • Massage your skin with Advanced Night Repair face serum, followed by your favorite Estée Lauder moisturizer.
  • Apply Double Wear Light Makeup and blend well.
  • Over foundation, use Illuminating Perfecting Primer at the top of cheekbones and on forehead as a highlighter.
  • Finish with Lucidity Translucent Loose Powder on T-zone only.
  • Note: Cheeks were absent of color. Kept nude, without hard definition, so all the focus was on eyes and lips.

  • Create a ray of light at the center of eyelid only. With fingertips, apply subtle layers of shadow from center of lashline up to brow.
  • Start with a subtle wash of Pure Color EyeShadow in Black Crystals.
  • Over it, add Pure Color EyeShadow Duo in Raisins and layer only the deeper shade (on right).
  • Finish with Pure Color EyeShadow in Cyber Silver applied on top. Blend evenly for an earthy (bohemian) vibe.
  • Note: No mascara or brow definer is used for this look.

  • Smooth on Pure Color Vivid Shine Lipstick in Copper Flash across entire lip.
  • Over lipstick, use Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lip Pencil in Wine and generously apply across entire lip to add depth and create a matte look.
  • Using your finger, pat on Pure Color Gloss in Brazen Berry to create a lip stained effect

From this look, imagination is inspired and we can easily see how The Metallics Pure Color Collection can be utilized to get a multitude of looks for fall 2013. The Metallics Pure Color Collection is available at select locations nationwide and at Estée Lauder.
