Flashback Friday: The Bitty Braid That Makes a Big Impact

-------

ann-catherineFlashback Friday is a feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.

The Model: Anne-Catherine Lacroix

The Moment: Bitty Braid

The Motivation: Summer is officially on come Saturday, and for East Coasters battling constant humidity, this means finding innovative ways to keep cool (and frizz-free). One of our favorites: the braid. Championed by Cara Delevingne at the launch of Kate Moss’ Topshop collection in London, a petite, face-framing plait is an easy way to camouflage bangs or simply pull strands off your face. We’re taking style cues from Cara and this late nineties editorial and replacing a handful of bobby pins or a headband with this tiny—yet effective—twist.

Flashback Friday: The Glitterati

The Model: Ewa Witkowska

The Moment: Shine Time

The Motivation: We’ve touted the merits of glitter before: The Fall 2014 shows saw the sparkly stuff applied to lip, lid, and beyond. Should you want to make an impact, we suggest taking inspiration from this image of model Ewa Witkowska and entering the extreme end of the shine spectrum. Backstage pro Pat McGrath reached for latex to adhere reflective particles to catwalkers’ eyes at Dior, but for beauty civilians, a less temperamental, metallic cream shadow provides plenty of grip. To intensify your look, brush brows up and set with gel.

Flashback Friday: Big Brows, Bigger Hair

The Model: Cindy Crawford

The Moment: The higher the hair, the closer to heaven

The Motivation: If we’ve learned anything from Cara Delevingne, it’s that the less tweezer action in the arch area, the better. But before Cara there was Cindy Crawford, who boasted a pair of glorious, untamed brows in 1986 (six years before the Brit beauty was born). The super’s larger-than-life hair also reminds us of a similarly voluminous look from Chanel’s recent Cruise show in Dubai. Perhaps this is the industry’s rebellion to all things minimalist, but tossing the tweezers and picking up a teasing comb never seemed like a better idea.

Flashback Friday: License to Line

The Model: Guinevere Van Seenus

The Moment: Graphic Eye Liner

The Motivation: After witnessing so many shadow moments during the Fall 2014 season (including lids flecked with glitter and swathed in latex), good-old liner took a bit of a backseat. But at Wednesday’s Dior Cruise show, newly appointed creative and image director Peter Philips created a two-pronged effect by extending the house’s forthcoming It-Line Eye Liner out past the upper and lower lash lines. It was a bold move that reminded us of the power of an expertly winged eye, and inspired us to reach for the somewhat precarious black liquid more often (keeping cotton swabs and makeup remover close at hand, of course). Coincidentally, we happened upon the above Craig McDean-lensed image for British Vogue in 1996, where a cat-eye was created in the inner corner of the eye. Now that’s inspiration we’ll be adding to our daily routine.

Flashback Friday: Who Gives a Tuck?

The Model: Renée Simonsen

The Moment: The Hair Tuck

The Motivation: As reported in our Fall 2014 Beauty Guide, the hair tuck (i.e., slipping one’s tresses inside a coat or under a scarf) was a recurring look on the runway. Spotted at Calvin Klein Collection, Burberry Prorsum, Prabal Gurung, and Tom Ford, it’s the perfect style to battle spring winds and breathe new life into a silk foulard. We’ll be taking cues from the above 1988-lensed image, which highlights another must-try trend of the season: a single statement earring.
