Backstage with Gottex at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week

* Model Arlenis Sosa gets made up by the hair and nails team

Headed by Angi Wingle of Creative Nail Design, the nail team set out to create a custom look especially for the Gottex Show. Angie described the look as a sheer, gold mineral wash. Angie described the look as sandblasted. The color was achieved by mixing a special blend of 3 different lacquers: 5 drops of bicycle yellow, 5 drops of Gold Chrome, and a teeny drop of Oil Slick.

This is the end result, which is absolutely beautiful.

The MAC makeup team, headed by Philippe Chansel, sought to channel the look of rich girls on the beach. Dripping with glamour, the models look both expensive and untouchable, evoking memories of runway vixens circa 1990.

To achieve this look, MAC artists used a mixture of face and body foundation and mineralize skinfinish to create a flawless canvas. Eyes were then defined using feline khol power and lots of mascara to create an intense look. MAC artists used tan pigment to get the light cocoa shade seen on the lids. To enhance the skin, emphasis was placed on the high planes of the face including cheekbones, under the brow, and the cupid's bow, highlighting with the use of MAC pigment in Melon (a beautiful pinky peach). To finish the look, MAC artists applied Sun Tints on the lips.

The hair team consisted of stylists from Cutler Salon, headed by Peter Gray. To go with the luxurious beachy vibe, stylists went with a look that is both fashionable and very sleek. A far cry from the texture we have been seeing all over the runways, the look of Gottex was full of shine and smoothness.

Hair was flatironed completely flat, with a microbraid plaited directly below the model's left ear. A tiny strip of hair from the right side was then positioned horizontally across the back of the head and then pinned into the braid to keep hair slicked back and in place.

To finish the look, stylists pinned stunning jeweled headbands in place to match the swimsuits, creating the illusion of an elegant swimcap.

That, beauties is the look of Gottex for Spring 2010. What do you think? Are you feeling the rich girl goes to the beach vibe?
