Smashbox Cosmetics Backstage at Kevan Hall

I met up with Lori Taylor the lead makeup artist for Smashbox Cosmetics backstage at the Kavan Hall show.

Lori Taylor told me all about the makeup look for the Kevan Hall runway show for their spring 2009 collection at LA Fashion Week.

According to Lori Taylor, lead makeup artist for Smashbox, the makeup look for the Kevan Hall fashion show is high glamour, old school, old Hollywood with a modern twist. Instead of using black or charcoal smoky eye like in the 1920’s, Smashbox is using a softer grey and somewhat metallic shade to accent or to ‘smoke’ the eye.

Lots of black mascara is also applied. Not a lot is applied on the cheeks, for a radiant and perfect skin. The lips are just lightly stained. The look is smokey eye with some color on the lip, but not heavy with lipstick or a lip gloss. This look is a bit different than what we normally see for spring.

Fashion Designer Kevan Hall inspects his models’ look backstage.

Kevan Hall was inspired by Adrian who was a Hollywood custom designer in the 1930’s and 1940’s when planning the makeup look for his fashion show.

One product that you can use to achieve the look backstage at the Kavan Hall fashion show would be Smashbox Tinted Treatment Lipstick SPF 15 in Ray which can be worn by both men and women. It hydrates your lips with just a faint flash of color.

Smashbox Tinted Treatment Lipstick SPF 15 in Ray: This vitamin and antioxidant-packed sheer lip color has it all – a treatment core with SPF 15 to protect, vitamins A, C & E to revitalize, shea butter, jojoba and avocado oils to nourish, and chamomile and aloe to soothe. Honey provides extra moisturization and a deliciously sweet flavor and scent. TINTED TREATMENT LIPSTICK is sheer and fool-proof enough to apply anywhere – no mirror required!

Watch my interview with Lori Taylor, Smashbox’s lead makeup artist, where she describes the look backstage at the Kevan Hall show:
