Designer:  J Mendel

Makeup Artist: Gucci Westman for Revlon

Manicurist: Jin Soon Choi

Inspiration: girlish, natural beauty

For J. Mendel’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection, makeup artist Gucci Westman for Revlon wanted to create a girlish, natural beauty look with matte brown eyes and nude lips.

“I wanted to create a look that is universally beautiful, that any girl would want to wear.” says Westman. “Because the collection has so many bold and bright colors and patterns, I kept it pretty simple and fresh.  I started with a muted brown shadow on the eyes, lined the inner rim, then added mascara to both the top and bottom lashes to make the eyes pop.  A warm flush of peach on the cheeks and a simple glossy lip rounded out the look.”

For a classic meets modern look, celebrity manicurist, Jin Soon Choi chose a timeless nude color for the hands and paired it with something more unexpected and fun on the toes.  Choi used bright red, purple and pink on the toes, depending on the model.
