female power backstage at ulla johnson nyfw: get the look
Boho designer Ulla Johnson explained her Feb ’17 NYFW show as an “exploration of what femininity means, with respect to being in power or a powerful woman.” Backstage with makeup artist Romy Soleimani, we saw the aesthetic of feminine power come to life. Tata Harper Skincare was her choice for both skin care and makeup – and we were absolutely thrilled with the final look.
Hair was a slicked back braid accompanying a minimal makeup look. “The inspiration for this season was a strong, intellectual woman with her feet on the ground. I played into the colors for the collection using army green eyeliner on certain girls and a rusty red lip on others,” Romy explained. “The textures and fabrics of the collection also inspired me as I created a velvet matte finish for the lip and skin.”
Want the look? You can have it, straight from Romy’s backstage skin care sheet and exclusively with Tata Harper.
Skin. Start by double cleansing the skin with a two-step process. First, use the Nourishing Oil Cleanser to remove any excess makeups or impurities. Then, use the Regenerating Cleanser to polish the skin to remove debris and create a smooth surface for makeup application. To boost the skin’s glow, models were treated with the Resurfacing Mask to enhance the skin’s natural radiance. Refresh skin by liberally spraying Hydrating Floral Essence all over the skin to allow for fast, thorough absorption of the Tata Harper Rejuvenating Serum. As a final, mattifying step, apply the Tata Harper Rebuilding Moisturizer to prep the skin for makeup.
Eyes and brows. Models were treated with two different eye-look options inspired by this season’s palette: Some models had a swipe of army green eyeliner, while others were kept completely bare. In keeping with the neutral-themed look, models had their brows subtly groomed using a mascara brush.
Lips. As an alternative to the bold, army green eyeliner, models were treated to a rusty red lip: a mixture of Tata Harper Volumizing Lip and Cheek Treatment in Very Naughty. Models who wore the army green eyeliner kept a natural flush with Tata Harper Be True Lip Treatment.
