anything more frantic than fashion week itself is backstage at fashion week, more so even when you have limited basement space and a team of 20 hair and makeup artists bustling around trying to finish the looks of 15 models all in the presence of photographers and media trying to get that perfect shot. stila cosmetics invited us to have an early look at what spring 2016 will be all about for your skin and makeup at the frame denim presentation in soho. to go with the theme of the show, west coast beach vibes were out at full force. from their stay all day 10 in 1 hd beauty balm to give the skin that sun kissed glow to the eyes are the window shadow palette in mind the look was rather simple, what stood out here was the brows, finally the focus is on a strong feathered brow, we saw stila waterproof brow color on all the girls, this means plucking is officially over and it makes me wish i was a model in 2015 where focus is on natural beauty. brows frame your face and can guide your entire look. i love how defined my look feels when i do my brows, wear it on it’s own with dewy skin or add as the finishing touch for a statement.
for spring 2016 frame’s focus was away from denim, what i call la beach, they call the french riviera, borrowing from each other and depending on the decade are perhaps the same thing. the oversized scarf/blanket/poncho was by far my favourite piece, belt details and striped headbands made me wish i was more into accessories and the silhouettes took us back to a warmer, sunnier time of year. looking forward to wearing jackets this fall for sure, but nothing replaces the feeling of them being optional. at exit every guest was gifted with a pair of denim and mine already adorned the blog about a week ago, see the full look with my le grand garcon here and see the full spring 2016 frame denim collection here. xoxo
