Backstage Beauty: Comrags Fall 2011

Posted by Siofan | Friday April 8, 20112 comments

Comrags Fall 2011 runway show featured their better-than-garden-variety floral prints, which played well with the set and brushed out curls and soft, smudged eye.


We learned a little cheat backstage watching Eric Del Monaco do this style. To give hair the appearance of deeply waved, pin-backed hair there's no need to curl the entire head. The back half of models' hair was roughed up with L'Oréal Paris Mineral FX Modelling Gel-Creme and pulled back into a low ponytail and then twisted into a messy twist using bobby pins to secure. The front section of hair was parted to the side and then curled using a double barrel curling iron (does anyone else think of those double neck guitars when they see one of these curling irons?). You couldn't tell that only the front half of a model's head was curled, and what a time time-saver not having to do the hard to reach back of the head. Curls were brushed out so they appeared soft and then were incorporated into the twist at the back and pinned. The look was romantic and effortless.

Makeup and Runway

Makeup was soft and smudged with a bit of drama around the eyes. After a simple foundation, brows were left bare with just a light pearly highlight underneath and on the inside of the eyes. On the lids, two shades—a brown and bronze—were contoured into the lid and crease, and black liner was applied to the water line and smudged to soften, with some of the bronze shadow applied over top to distill further. Brown mascara finished off the eye. On lips, a shimmery peachy-beige lip gloss was dabbed.
