Backstage Beauty at Tibi SS15
Season after season, Tibi designer Amy Smilovic turns out modern, wearable pieces in bold prints and rich fabrics—and her show this past Saturday was no exception. Taking inspiration from Japan and Peru, Smilovic crafted kimonoesque blouses, raffia-accented sandals, and stiff woven hats in muted tones.
“Amy’s collection was all about a clean, sleek look, so I wanted to give the hair a bit more edge,” said Aveda Guest Artist Frank Rizzieri. Starting with Pure Abundance Style Prep, Rizzieri blow-dried and flat-ironed strands, misting from roots to ends with Air Control Hair Spray, and then working through a few drops of Dry Remedy Oil for a dry, textured finish. To complement the Japanese notes in the collection, Rizzieri wrapped a single elastic around the back of the head and added unexpected kinks for a modern interpretation of the traditionally straight-haired look.
For Kimberly Soane, Bobbi Brown’s Director of Global Artistry, it was all about a hydrated, natural appearance. Using a Long-Wear Cream Shadow Stick as the base, Soane created a taupe eye, subtly defined with one coat of mascara. Also in store: “I wanted brows that were naturally messy and full, not overly done or with any harsh lines,” she said. Same with the lip, dabbed with Creamy Lip Color in Heather Mauve. Designed to appear hydrated, but not glossy or overly wet—it’s safe to say that subtlety will be the theme for 2015.
