Backstage at New York Fashion Week- Jason Wu by CND Nails, Aveda, and MAC Cosmetics

The look for Jason Wu was simple and fresh, using a muted color palette that played upon the metallic colors in Wu’s fall line.

Nails by Kristina Estabrooks for CND Nails

For the Jason Wu show, CND created a custom blended shade of mushroom using 1 coat of Silver Chrome, with 1 coat of Putty, finished off with Super Matte Topcoat. The shade was inspired by the negatives of a photograph, by color as seen through the fog. Instead of using vivid hues, nails are given a quality likened to an industrial haze.


Hair by Odille Gilbert for Aveda
The hair look for Jason Wu was both simple and clean with a low, faux braided bun.
Hair was swept back into a low ponytail, kept fairly unstructured and then wrapped with elastic to give the illusion of a braid. The ponytail was twisted up and knotted into a bun, but kept low. The effect was clean and fuss-free, a hairstyle that any woman can wear.
Makeup by Lucia  Peroni for MAC Cosmetics

The makeup team, led by Lucia Pieroni, gave models a look that was young, fresh, and slightly masculine.Skin looked bright and youthful, thanks to Strobe Cream and not much else. Mimicking the silver and gold color scheme of the fall collection, models wore a painted metallic gold or silver on their eyes, topped with Reflects Glitter in gold or silver. Lips were kept simple with only lip balm, and models did not wear mascara.  Lucia placed the focus on the eyes, which had an almost magical quality to them.
