Vera Wang Fall 2015 Backstage Beauty

The no-makeup makeup trend got a boyish update at Vera Wang’s Fall 2015 show, where makeup artist Lucia Pieroni gave models dewy skin, straight, dark brows and a touch of Clé de Peau’s new peach blush duo, Maple Leaf (available Fall 2015). “When you need a lift in winter, peach is really good for giving you a bit of color,” she notes. Meanwhile, Paul Hanlon prepped hair with Bumble and bumble Prep and Thickening sprays, rough dried it to create a bit of irregularity, then pulled it back into an imperfect bun. Next, using Does It All hairspray, he splayed the ends and attached baby hairs around the face for a sporty, almost sweaty look. “We’re trying to make the girls’ hair look like it’s the end of the day rather than the beginning,” he explains. Finally, Wang envisioned a colorless, buffed nail, which manicurist Jin Soon Choi bettered with the Matte Maker Top Coat from her own line. “I feel like the buffed nail has been done many, many times and the shiny buff just isn’t interesting anymore,” she says. “It’s all about well-groomed nails today, but with a matte finish.”
