Backstage Beauty at Cynthia Rowley Spring 2015

September 15, 2014
Daniel Martin at Cynthia Rowley Spring 2015, John Barrett at Cynthia Rowley Spring 2015

Following up on my coverage of Cynthia Rowley's groovy Spring 2015 presentation, here is a peek at the backstage beauty. Makeup artist Daniel Martin's said his muse was iconic British singer Marianne Faithfull with a downtown twist and he termed the look "broken" as if the models had slept in it the night before. The striking eye look was created using Cynthia Rowley Beauty's stunning new color-blocked Game Face Eyeshadow Palette (available only at Birchbox on October 8). He defined the top lash line with the Mini Eye Liner Pencil in Black and went over it using the deep charcoal shade called Knockout. To build the "chunky lashes", Daniel and his team used individual false lashes followed by several coats of mascara. He muted the lips with W3LL People Narcissist Stick Foundation before applying Cynthia Rowley Beauty's Creamy Lipstain in Sugar for a subtle nude pink pout. The brows were kept natural and a shimmery vanilla shade called MVP was used to create soft highlights on the brow bones and cheeks. John Barrett of the John Barrett Salon created modern and textured hair looks to complement the modernity of the collection. The futuristic looking styles called for a good deal of twirling and teasing using John Barrett's Be Healed Styling Mask and Shu Uemura's Essence Absolue Cream in Oil for volume, shine and control. There was also plenty of hairspray going around. Color Club was on hand to provide glossy neutral colored manicures matched to the models' individual skin tones to keep the focus on the clothes.

The hair might be a little difficult to pull off but I find this makeup look to be very pretty and wearable. What do you think?

Special thanks to Birchbox, the exclusive backstage sponsor of the show for this insider's view.

  2. Hi Rowena! The MUA make an amazing job both with hair and the make up. I especially love the make up look: sleek, feminine and eyecatching; and is also my go-to look :) You took such stunning photos dear, make me feel very inspired, well done! Have a lovely week ahead, many hugs! xo

  20. Oh wow, I love it all! Such great inspiration. I would definitely wear that hairstyle for a night out and that makeup any day! Great coverage on this backstage beauty! Thanks for sharing :)

  21. The make-up is totally doable. I like that they went wild with the hair and more natural with the make-up. It's a good contrast!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Again, these are amazing photos, Rowena!
    I love how close and personal each picture looks. And I really like the simply lined eyes with lush lashes. :)

  27. The eyes are unbelievable!!! I once studied Kevin Aucoin's books as I think makeup is a form of art! I LOVE how they did up the eyes and left everything else soft! Thanks for sharing this one friend! Nicole xoxo now I need to go makeup shopping!

  28. I love behind the scenes images. The natural looking manicure and the eye makeup are my favourite. Thanks for sharing.

  34. This is actually quite refreshing; they are usually so intense with the make up that I always wonder 'who on earth can get inspiration from this for an every day look?' It's so cool to have a sneak peek backstage. I'm glad you got very up close and personal with the camera for us all to see. All your photos are such good quality, especially considering the mania it usually is backstage! Rosemary x

  50. What an utterly fantastic post! I'm such a huge fan of Cynthia Rowley (three of my latest purchases have been by the brand!) and so this was incredible to flick through. The second last photo in particular of the model is excellent; wonderful models and wonderful beauty techniques - what more could you ask for?! :) Have a lovely weekend.. when we get there! :)

  53. Loving the eye looks created for the show! Seems to be the in thing for this season, play up with the eyes makeup and keep the lips nude and pink, very clean sort of makeup looks! Love it.

    Glad that you got to go back stage for this! Am sure you had a great time there *_^
    Always fun to go for such events and take a peek at how things are put together before a big show!

    Cheers,
