Direct from the Runway: Erin Fetherston Spring 2010

Backstage at Erin Fetherston was pretty, pretty, pretty! Lucia Pica for M.A.C (makeup), Lyndell Mansfield for Bumble and Bumble (hair) and Pattie Yankee for Dashing Diva (nails) created a look that was at once elegant and powerful. See all the details after the jump.

Lucia Pica, Key Artist for M.A.C, created a smothering eye look by blending M.A.C Cork and Brun eyeshadows with M.A.C Teddy Eye Kohl and M.A.C Dipdown Fluidline. According to Neil Young, Senior Artist for M.A.C, it was a “modern take on a diffused look.” The warm eyes popped even under the shadow of the mesh hats that the models wore, evoking the film era of the 70's. This season, the focus was on either eyes or lips (not both!) and so Lucia kept the lips bare with lip balm -– she even put concealer on the lips of models that had “too much natural color.” On cheeks, high near the eyes, was a coral orange creme blush called Optimistic Orange, out in stores next spring. Neil called the look “more flush than blush.” Love it!

Lyndell Mansfield for Bumble and Bumble is the most charming character, cheerleading on her hair staff in an outfit of lace bustier, bubble skirt, stockings and platform boots. The look she created consisted of a “flirtatious and sophisticated” side part and two buns, expertly pinned one over another. She wanted a look that “wasn’t perfect ... messed up hair that looked like it was falling down.” She took her inspiration from the clothes, saying this year’s collection was elegant and powerful and she wanted “understated details in the hair that emphasized a long neckline.”

The adorable Lyndell Mansfield

On nails, Pattie Yankee for Dashing Diva used 2 coats of the neutral beige, Trust Fund, on short round nails. She said this color will be huge next spring, along with a coral orange, saying it's perfect for "a girl on the go," since the nude hue goes with absolutely everything. "It’s both sophisticated and carefree,” she told me backstage. Gorgeous –- I need to get me a bottle right now!
