NY Fashion Week: Charlotte Ronson Spring 2010

i was fortunate enough to go backstage at Charlotte Ronson to get the scoop on the makeup, hair and nail color details for the spring 2010 season. the look, as described by Charlotte herself, is "classical meets street".

as you can imagine, it was a bit chaotic backstage, but i totally expected it. as people came in and out, i just tried to snap good pics and stay out of the way, LOL!

as it rained outside, models were dolled up to look like ballerinas who were on their way home after a dance class: hair (created by Alan Ruiz for Avon) was in a twitted and tousled bun, while Charlotte Willer for Maybelline New York created a look that made the skin look look "fresh and glowy".

the nails were polished using Milani nail lacquer in Creme Brulee

i'm not going to say i was thrilled with the hairstyling choice, but as an overall concept when put together with the makeup and clothes, i got it.

check out makeup artist Charlotte Willer explain how she created the natural, glowy look for the show:
