Each model’s tresses were given a boost of shine using Redken’s Diamond Oil, which gives a the perfect finish according to lead hairstylist Linh Nguyen.
The makeup continued with the artistic theme and focused on light, space, and dimension. Dewy skin is key for this look and Kevin Aucoin’s Tinted Balm for face. Next color was added to the look with a mango color eyeliner on the top eyelid. Mascara was only placed on the bottom lashes to make the eyes pop. Cheeks and lips were illuminated with light reflecting pigments. To achieve this look at home, forget the expensive brushes and melt the product into your skin with the warmth of your fingers.
