When it comes to birthdays, I’m not one to host an all-out affair and haven’t since I turned 10. I prefer to commemorate the occasion with a quiet dinner—my only requirement is that ice cream cake and champagne be present. Anja Rubik‘s celebration of her 31st this past weekend, however, may have changed my mind. Face painter Wendy Rowe created a sparkly, star-studded burst around the catwalker’s left eye with stencils and finely milled silver glitter. If there was ever an excuse to have a party, this makeup would be it. (Even better: The shiny stuff is having a major moment, appearing on the runway for Fall 2014 at Rodarte and Altuzarra.) Bring on the balloons, as I’m not sure I can wait to turn a year older to try out this flashy, fete-worthy look.
Some things you can be pretty sure of when it comes to Burberry Prorsum: They will have an A-list front row, they’ll have the hottest models walking in the show (Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn, Edie Campbell, and Suki Waterhouse for starters), and the hair and makeup will be both effortless and wearable.
Today the house delivered on all fronts. Inspired by the painted pieces in the collection, makeup artist Wendy Rowe used broad brushstrokes to apply an aubergine powder across lids. To make the color movable, she topped it with Burberry Fresh Glow (a liquid highlighter). “The [shadow] should look a little haphazard, almost like the girls have applied it themselves,” she said. To complement the eyes, a new, plum-toned Burberry nail lacquer also made an appearance: Elderberry (available Fall 2014).
Neil Moodie created what he described as “day two hair.” Bumble and Bumble Tonic and a curling iron were used to form natural waves that looked groomed but not overstyled. Just before the girls took to the runway, Moodie tucked the length into the collars of the multiple trenchcoats in the collection and pulled some strands loose to complete the cool-girl persona.
By now you’ve likely witnessed the frenzy Miley’s brows (or lack thereof) has caused. Perhaps the twerking phenom read the latest study on bleach and its benefits to skin and got carried away. But whitening the hair above your eyes is nothing new—just ask a model (like the women who walked Prada for Spring 2014) or Soo Joo Park, who recently posed for Vogue China sporting a choppy black wig and blond brows. Makeup artist Wendy Rowe, who created the look for the glossy, recently posted a step-by-step on her site on how to DIY without eradicating your arches. All you need is a tub of classic Jolen Creme Bleach, petroleum jelly, a spooly brush, and some blue-tinged shampoo to wash away any brassiness. Cara Delevingne may have the ability to make tweezer sales fall, but today, I’m considering investing in Clorox.
Minnie Mouse first debuted her red and white polka-dot dress and matching bow in 1928. Now she’s getting a modern update by Anna Sui, who dressed her in (what else?) black, along with the designer’s signature purple for the holidays. From mascara to mouse-shaped lipstick bullets, you’ll find a rocker version of the rodent on b-glowing.com—all part of a limited-edition collaboration with the online retailer.
In other product news, Bleach hair salon in London released a line of products including at-home bleaching kits and non-permanent dyes in punk-inspired shades like peach, rose, and “bruised violet.”
British makeup artist Wendy Rowe talks to Byrdie.com about how she tames Cara Delevingne’s famous arches. All it takes is some Elnett and a mascara wand.
Sephora is at your service on Google. Starting tomorrow, the store is launching Google Helpouts, where you can chat face-to-face with a pro about how to perfect your smoky eye gone awry or finally find a foundation that matches your skin tone. It appears that this chain is taking a cue from the chorus of The Spinners’ seventies hit “I’ll Be Around”: “Whenever you call me, I’ll be there/ Whenever you want me, I’ll be there/ Whenever you need me, I’ll be there/ I’ll be around.”
After a Brazilian blowout blunder, Jennifer Aniston steps out with a shorter cut. The bob is somewhat reminiscent of “The Rachel,” but don’t mention that to Aniston—she’d rather shave her head than wear the style that spawned millions of face-framing layers and chunky highlights. [EOnline.com]
While we’ve seen some interesting things done with eyeliner in the past (Peter Philips at Chanel and Fendi anyone?), the bum shot that makeup artist Wendy Rowe posted on Instagram today was certainly cheeky. With denim recently incorporated into Anthony Vaccarello’s and Balmain’s collections, the hunt for that elusive pair that accentuates every curve without pulling across the front or gaping in the back is set to continue for Spring. Here, a black pencil offers a simple (albeit bold) solution to finding the perfect fit.
