Tokyo: Backstage at Atsushi Nakashima Spring 2014


Super sleek hair and pale, glowing make-up brought an other worldly element to the vibrant Atsushi Nakashima Spring 2014 collection. To create this perfect look, the designer tapped the top artists  from L'Oreal Professional and Maybelline Professional, here is what they did. 

First up, the hair. 

Smooth and utterly gleaming, the hair look was ultra sleek and minimalistic for both men and women. To get the look stylists began by wetting hair and blow drying using plenty of L'Oreal Mythic Oil, and L'Oreal Liss Ardent Thermal Styling treatment  to protect and smooth hair. Next, hair was meticulously flat ironed out into a prefect drape free of any bumps or waves using L'Oreal Texture Expert Smooth Ultime Texture Gelee to style and hold.  Next, hair was given a sharp side part and held in place with paper-wrapped pins.

Make-up was kept ULTRA minimal with 

skin imperfections camouflaged with Maybelline Super Mineral 24 Foundation, and brows emphasized using Maybelline Ultra-Brow Brush on Color. As as final touch temples and tops of cheeks were given sparkle with Maybelline glittering Mineral Eye Color pressed gently on.
