Thankfully, as we jet from backstage to backstage this season, we keep hearing the same phrases used over and over again: clean, fresh, organic, and “like they did it themselves”. Good news for us, who don’t have the beauty team following us around all day ( a girl can dream!)
Backstage at the Charlotte Ronson show, we noticed some really chic looks, which thankfully are super easy to re-create at home. Here’s how to get the look:
For the face, Sephora PRO artist Gilbert Soliz told us that Charlotte wanted the girls to look as if they’d done their own faces. The skin was kept dewy using Make Up For Ever Face and Body Liquid Makeup, and then sculpted with taupe powder to lift the face. The eyes were then given a monochromatic brown smokey look using Makeup For Ever Aqua Eyes in Pearly Brown. The shadow was applied to the lid and then winged out with a brush, followed by DiorShow mascara enhance lashes. The eyebrows were kept natural and only lightly groomed, and lips were left nude, touched only by clear balm to enhance (Sephora FACE Very Sexy Nourishing Lip Balm SPF 15).
For the hair, TRESemmÉ Celebrity Stylist Jeanie Syfu said that Ronson wanted “decadence”. The hair was prepped with a lightweight mousse (Tresemme 24hr Body), and then dried with a round brush for volume before being sectioned off and wrapped lightly around a barrel iron. The curls were then finger combed to loosen the wave, and spritzed with a dry shampoo (Tresemme Fresh Start) to absorb leftover styling products.
Viola! So simple….turban optional.
Seventeen designers created dresses that were walked down the runway by some of the biggest names in entertainment, to promote awareness of heart disease in women. Between the amazing one of a kind designs, and the star power (Joan Collins!!!)…once we were able to pick our jaws up off of the floor, we noticed that the makeup and hair was pretty brilliant as well, courtesy of Jimmy Paul for Bumble & Bumble, and the incomparable Bobbi Brown. Here are some of our faves:
A standout was a flawless Kim Kardashian, who paired her dramatic Marchesa with a slicked back, loose wave style that cascaded down her back, bronzed glowing skin, nude lips, and smokey eyes. Gorgeous!
Heidi Klum, ikept it simple and pretty with her trademark center part, and fresh makeup.
Totally coveting Pauley Perette’s heavy rimmed eyes and rocker bangs.
Felicity Huffman was stunning (seriously, so pretty in person!) in hair that was waved, then pinned and a silver smokey eye that made her blues pop.
We saw Jordin Sparks arrive with a head of tight spiral curls; by showtime they were magically transformed into this sleek, shiny style, complimented by a face of fresh pinks and plums.
And lastly, the ever gorgeous Kimora Lee, who was rocking decidedly understated (for her) ironed hair and light makeup.
Enter Stila’s new Yumberry Crush Lip & Cheek Stain.

You’re probably wondering…Yum-WHAT? Yumberry is an antioxidant superfruit from China, said to be FIFTY times stronger than vitamin E, and twenty times stronger than vitamin C. Research also shows that Yumberry may help slow the break down of collagen, therefore slowing premature aging.The gorgeous pearlized pink shade comes in Stila’s trademark travel-friendly lip pen, and can be worn as a sheer cheek color or a “just bit my lips” stain
