Racially Diverse Models Bring Individuality to Mara Hoffman

Beach chic sums up Mara Hoffman's Spring/Summer 2011 collection and the hair and makeup effortlessly complimented the style.  Fedoras, sunglasses, bright patterns, dewy skin and bohemian hair were spotted on the catwalk at Pier 59 studio. "Even though they're all wearing the same look, the model's are all so racially diverse, they bring their own individuality it," stated Lottie, Makeup Forever's lead makeup artist.  She kept it clean using Makeup Forever's HD Foundation and Sculpting Kit around the cheeks and left the lips natural.  The secret to a dewy complexion?  The beauty blender!

Watch the video below for Lottie's tips on how to use the egg shaped pink sponge to perfect it.

Three different hair 'do's were created on the 15 models by Martin-Christopher Harper for Redken and Cutler.  The inspiration: A woman on the Caymen Islands just coming from a leisurely day at the beach.  It was a look we can all relate to, very organic.  From texturized high buns to buns at the nape of the neck and loose waves all of the women had the same theme.  The key to mastering the beachy look is texture, texture, texture.  Try Cutler Volumizing Specializing Spray and mist it from your root to mid shaft and blow dry directly over your head from the front with your hands.
