Aline Weber – The Feminine Fatale

The best beauty advice I’ve ever gotten has to be to use sunscreen at all times. The sun is especially strong in New York, so you have to moisturize the skin, keep it clean, because once you have good skin you rarely need any make-up. I sometimes use Jurlique moisturizer, but I also love La Mer’s Moisturizing Lotion.

 

Four-Faces-of-Fall-Alana-Zimmer-beauty-secretsAlana Zimmer – The Sleek Sophisticate:

It’s honestly as simple as drinking water and eating healthy, in my opinion. I can always tell on my skin if I’m not eating the right things or if I’m not hydrated enough. If I’m not exercising enough, as well. It’s really all about being healthy, in my opinion. As far as go-to beauty remedies, I really love jojoba oil. I use it almost every single day. I really also love those SK‑II Facial Treatment Masks. For traveling, that’s just the best thing that I put in my bag. I’ll just use it wherever I am, even sometimes on the plane if I have to.

Carolinne Prates – The Fresh Beauty:

I’m obsessed with nail polishes. But that’s not advice I guess. Moisturizer with SPF. It’s so necessary. I love Dior‘s personally. The DiorSnow BB Cream is amazing.

 

Four-Faces-of-Fall-Bruna-Tenorio-beauty-secrets Bruna Tenorio – The Glamour Girl:

You have to get good sleep. Nothing worse than bags under your eyes. Sleep and Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Eye. Those are my secret weapons.

The Feminine Fatale

Our Feminine Fatale knows no harsh lines. It’s all about the lips and the eyes. Apply color, then blend softly. Here are a few of the things on her vanity:

Chanel: Coco Mademoiselle  I  Chanel: SUBLIMAGE

Clé de Peau Beauté: Foundation & Concealer  I  Burberry: My Burberry Eau de Parfum

Leave subtly to the other three girls. For fall’s Glamour Girl, more is more. Create dramatic, shimmery eyes with lots of lashes. Make them crumble by finishing it all off with a deep red lip. Be the glamour girl to end all glamour girls with these essentials:

Gucci: Gucci Beauty  I  NARS: Audacious Lipstick  I  Giorgio Armani: Black Ecstasy Mascara  I  Yves Saint Laurent: Couture Palette

The Fresh Beauty

The Saks Fresh Beauty girl has a natural glow. She knows to keep the lips neutral, letting her sparkling eyes do all the talking with just a hint of bronze and gold shadow. So what does a Fresh Beauty keep in her purse?

Chantecaille: 15 Year Anniversary Eye Shade Trio  I  Laura Mercier: Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide  I  Le Labo: City Exclusives  I  Kiehl’s: Super Multi-Corrective Eye-Opening Serum

The Sleek Sophisticate

Sleek sophistication implies a certain carriage and grace. To attain that kind of elevated beauty, buff your foundation for flawless looking skin. Define the eyes with some dramatic liner and accent lips with rich color. Here’s a few of the tools you may need on your way to sleek sophistication:

Estee Lauder: Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick  I  Lancome: Grandiose Mascara  I  La Prairie: Cellular Eye Essence Platinum Rare Collection  I  SK-II: Facial Treatment Essence Eye

Saks at the Shows: Backstage with Pat McGrath at Gucci ’15

See Gucci Beauty in action directly from backstage at Gucci's Spring 2015 show in Milan.

Backstage at the Gucci Spring 2015 show, we found make-up genius Pat McGrath with her army of artists in tow, prepping Frida Giannini’s Gucci girls with her very own Gucci Beauty make-up collection, which she co-designed for the Italian luxury house. The make-up look is essential to the overall impact of a Gucci runway show, so for this debut collection, Frida and Pat honed in on the iconic six colors that have become signatures on the ready-to-wear catwalk: gold, black, red, ottanio, bronze and copper.

“We looked at past archives including the fabrics and leathers,” said Pat McGrath about developing this debut cosmetics line alongside Gucci creative director Frida Giannini. “Frida gave me all of her favorite colors and there were so many reference points. It’s very rich packaging with very brave colors.”

As to the beauty look of the day, Pat noted that “Today’s Gucci girl is contemporary, eclectic. She’s dressing herself, she’s pleasing herself. So this season, Frida wanted the girls to look like themselves, but also wanted to play with the new colors that we’ve got in the new collection.”

Liner Up Top with a Smudge of Iconic Gold Below Lends the Gucci Girls a Polished, Natural Look

“We have the Tuscan Storm palette, which is very beautiful and has a light brown. Use a wet brush, closer lashes. We also used the light brown very softly. Just a smudge of Iconic gold under the eyes. The Gucci Eye Opulent Mascara on top lashes only. Eyebrows have been groomed softly. We’ve used the Lustrous Glow Foundation and the Face Luxe Finishing Powder only where needed. It is a very simple, natural look,” Pat added.

When asked about how a natural skin-glow was being emphasized Pat said, “Frida wanted the girls to look really fresh, as if they’re wearing nothing, but still with that Gucci polish. So we used the foundation with a brush and fingers, almost like a moisturizer and then I layered it slowly, using the Face Luminous Perfecting Concealer in the areas that need more help. It’s really about using your foundation as a moisturizer, we always talk about this, and then touching up gradually over areas that need more using foundation and concealer, just so it’s really transparent.”

The Beauty Takeaway at Gucci: Keep it Fresh and Fun

“The takeaway is to keep it fresh, but still play a bit with some of Gucci’s iconic colors,” Pat said backstage. “They are the colors that are in a way simple to wear, but at the same time they’re fun. And there is something new with the gold underneath the eyes.”
