Found: The Ideal Spring Wave at BCBG Max Azria
"We're striving to create the ideal wave . . . which does not actually exist in nature," quipped Laurent Philippon, lead stylist for Bumble and Bumble, backstage at BCBG Max Azria. And the ideal was the common theme at the brand's Spring 2014 show, where stylists and makeup artists strove to create the ideal BCBG girl who's cool, effortless, yet put-together. The waves were achieved by looping each section around the barrel of the iron halfway at the top, middle, and ends.
Lead makeup artist Val Garland for Sephora Pro focused on an androgynous look that focused on luminous skin. To create the envy-inducing contour, Garland used Marc Jacobs Beauty Perfection Powder Featherweight Foundation ($46) in a few shades darker that the models' skin tone instead of the typical bronzer. The final look was light, angelic, and easy to do at home — the ideal look for Spring. Be sure to check out POPSUGAR Fashion's BCBG runway coverage.
