The Row Spring 2012 with Estée Lauder
Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director Tom Pecheux lead a team of makeup artists to create the fresh and beautiful look on 15 models – While famed manicurist Deborah Lippman and her team polished their nails using Estée Lauder Pure Color Nail Lacquer.
“The beauty look for The Row presentation is softly sophisticated. The models look fresh, natural and beautiful – what any woman would want to look like when she wakes up in the morning.” – Tom Pecheux, Estée Lauder Creative Makeup Director.
The Row, the collection designed by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, had its Fashion Week debut yesterday, February 16, 2010, at a gallery on New York’s west side. The line has earned a following for its simple yet sophisticated structured pieces and the new collection continued beautifully on that theme.
Makeup Tutorial: Lancôme’s creative director for makeup Aaron De Mey keyed the show. Aaron sought an exaggerated yet natural makeup look that focused on strong, defined brows and a dewy complexion. The neutral color palette meant that skincare played an important role. To prep, Aaron used Lancôme Eau Fraiche Douceur Micellar Cleansing Water and followed it with Lancôme Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate massaged generously into the skin; this duo gave each model a luminous complexion. Lancôme Le Crayon Poudre filled and defined the brows—a focal point of this look. To finish, Aaron dabbed Lancôme Effeacernes Concealer on the lips, a trick that removed the natural lip color and kept the focus squarely on the brows.
Everyone backstage and front of house was obsessed with the braided black Louboutin sandals made exclusively for the show. (And the models were clearly happy to get a break from all the skyscraper heels!) Mary-Kate and Ashley chose a deep wine colored polish –Lancôme Le Vernis in Untamed Plum – for the toes, but kept the fingernails clean and shiny with a coat of clear nail polish.
Celebrity Hairdressers Oscar Blandi & Mark Townsend get Hollywood’s biggest stars glam for the 2009 Costume Institute Gala.

With Brooke’s hair, Oscar wanted to keep it very clean. “I decided to give her curls and keep them loose so that the look stayed soft.” When her hair was still wet, he applied his Volumizing Spray to the root and then the Onde Wave Spray all over the hair to really lock in the curl. After drying the hair, he used both a medium and large barrel curling iron throughout. Using two different size barrels prevents the curls from all being the same size and ultimately blending together, so this way we avoid the blending and create more dimension. Once the curls were finished, he gently applied a small amount of Jasmine Oil on the hair to create sheen and sprayed Lacca hairspray all over.

“For Rosario, I created what I like to call an abstract chignon.” First Oscar blow dried the hair straight and then secured a low pony tail above the nape of the neck. Once the ponytail is set, you add medium and large size plastic rollers to the loose hair (again with both sizes to ensure texture throughout the hair). Then he sprayed Onde Wave Spray while setting the curl make sure the hair takes. Once he pulled out the rollers, it was easy to create a chignon with loose pieces– you just follow the curve of the hair and begin pinning sections in place with a bobby pin. Feel free to let hair hang and fall as it may and pull out pieces in the front to layer around the face. The final step was to spray the look with Lacca for hold through the night.
