New York: Backstage at Son Jung Wan Fall 2014

Soft sun kissed skin and glittering gold-foiled lips were the look created by Shiseido's elite Tokyo-based team lead by Miyako Okamoto for the Son Jung Wan Fall 2014 collection. Admittedly this isn't the easiest for a DIY/Get the Look project as the talented Shiseido gurus were painstakingly applying and adjusting the lip foils for quite some time backstage. But whether or not we're planning on rocking this look at home, it was fascinating to watch. 

First step,  flawless skin was created using Shiseido Perfect Refining FoundationNext, a sculpted cheek was created using a blend of Shiseido bronzer and blush.Then a metallic lip color was applied and followed by sheets of foil that were trimmed to fit model's lips. (Models were then instructed not to eat, drink, and if possible speak (or giggle) until lips had set!!) 

While that was going on, the Prive Salon team was creating a gently tossled bun, and nails were painted in a glittering gold hue to match the lips.
