Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week: Backstage with tarte at Lela Rose
Early Sunday morning under the tents at Bryant Park, you could say the tarte team felt more in outer space than midtown Manhattan. OK maybe that’s a bit extreme, but Lela Rose was inspired by the textures and depths of the universe and her Fall 2010 collection speaks to that notion of nighttime skies and lunar moons. The tarte artistry team along with celebrity makeup artist lead, Tina Turnbow had the privilege to create the beauty look that complimented the ‘constellation like’ lineup. Tina created a muted, matte & cloudy complexion using tarte’s smooth operator tinted-moisturizer, provocateur pressed powder, blissful natural cheek stain & t-zone travel mattifying powder. But the focus was on the mysterious, moonlit eyes. Turnbow and team shaped depth with black, silver & graphite shadows using their eye-couture palettes; working from the outer corners in, they left no edges to the hazy look. A balmy but muted pout, textured updo by Ted Gibson & sparkling nails by Debra Lippman completed the ethereal feel. After two hours of backstage chaos & anticipation (might I add much-enjoyed chaos) the leggy beauties strutted the runway & “across the universe”.
