Montreal Fashion Week S/S12 Backstage Beauty: UNTTLD

To go with the edgy, avant garde (and much buzzed about) collection from 
UNTTLD, Denis Binet, Pantene Consulting Stylist and Creative Director for Hair at Montreal Fashion Week, created a
hair look to appear as though the models had just come out of a swimming pool, gathering at the neck with the ends more natural and smooth.

To get the look, use a strong hold gel ("but not crispy" says Denis) such as Sebastian Gel Forte and on the ends, try Wella Thermal Image for a soft look (the product will also help protect ends when flat ironing). To get the true runway look, smooth on some Wella Mirror Polish quickly with your hands to give your hair a glassy, reflective finish.

The just-out-of-the-pool look continued with the makeup, which was kept bare but polished. Skin was kept natural with Cover Girl Clean Foundation — spritzed with water for a dewy effect. 
Strong brows were the focus: "We needed something to unify the models and something that would bring structure to the face, since the collection is avant garde and structured," says Amelie Ducharme, Cover Girl Pro and Creative Director for Makeup at Montreal Fashion Week . First, she 
filled in brows with Cover Girl Brow and Eye Makers. To avoid overly bold brows, Amelie suggests filling in your brows with a pencil with little upward strokes then softening the effect by using a brush. For UNTTLD, to
give the brows a bushy, natural feel, rather than drawn in, clear mascara was used to brush the brows (only the inner halves of each brow) upwards.
To complete the look, Amelie used taupe eyeshadow with Cover Girl Smokey Shadow Blast in beige as a highlight in the inner corner of the eye, along with Cover Girl Nature Luxe Gloss Balm in Marble (a clear, natural looking shade).
What do you think of this look? Would you try it out?
