PAMELLA ROLAND’S SPRING/SUMMER

Pamella Roland’s inspiration for her 2015 Spring/Summer collection stemmed from “The Gardens of Kyoto Japan.” As an ode to Japan and cherry blossoms, lead makeup artist, Matin Maulawizada for Laura Mercier, created a fashion-forward monochromatic look. He was inspired by a “Geisha-esque” image of American model Guinvere van Seenus photographed by Steven Meisel. The final look was “effortless, but dramatic.”   Lead hair stylist Ted Gibson, created a modern hair look that paid homage to the fierce spirit of Japanese warriors and delicate beauty of Geishas.  “When you see this style from the front, it looks shiny and sleek, but the contrasting coiffed texture in the back amps up the edge-factor and makes it more modern,” Ted said. “Most importantly, it complements the beautiful designs and can be easily translated from the runway to your way.”

"Cake" Premiere - 2014 Toronto International Film FestivalTuesday night Jennifer Aniston attended the premiere of  ”Cake” at the Toronto Film Festival.  We were intrigued by the actress’s fresh-faced look, created by celebrity makeup artist, Angela Levin, and knew that we must learn how to steal that style.  After prepping Aniston’s skin with AVEENO’s Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub and Daily Moisturizer SPF 15, Levin applied a light coat of foundation by CHANEL Perfection Lumière Velvet.  Using two shades, one darker (60 Beige) on the neck and outer areas of her face, and another lighter (50 Beige) towards the center, “it makes the eye area, lips and cheeks slightly brighter,” explains Levin.  She then used CHANEL Les Beiges in N50 as a matte bronzer on Aniston’s forehead, chin and cheek.  For blush, Levin combined CHANEL Le Blush Créme in Chamade with Make Up Forever Second Skin Cream Blush 335, and gently applied with her fingers.  To highlight Aniston’s beautiful blue eyes, Levin used a combination of Revlon Colorstay Shadowlinks in Chocolate and Melon and Edward Bess Prismette Eye Shadow Quad in Cosmic Bliss, noticeably without any liner.  Filling in brows eye brows with Senna Sketch-A-Brow pencil in light taupe, Levin adds, ”I always finish the eyes with the one and only Inimitable Intense CHANEL mascara in black.”
