From what I have seen so far, bright lips seemed to be HUGE this coming Spring. And at Rag & Bone Spring/Summer 2014, Revlon Global Artistic Director Gucci Westman paired a bold orange lip with clean luminous skin, a subtle eye and strong brows.
“This look focuses on textures with a matte lip and luminous skin, but it’s not about being sweet; she’s still a cool rag & bone girl,” says Westman. “This is the first time Rag & Bone has ever done a lip look like this. We decided to go with a bold lip because it fit so well with the clothes this season. There is a lot of shine to the collection, as well as pastels, so I really wanted the lip to pop. The lip color was inspired by the World Cup in Brazil and the eye look was inspired by what your eyes might look like the morning after going to bed with your makeup on.”

To recreate the nail look worn by the models, celebrity manicurist Jin Soon Choi suggests creating a shape that’s slightly rounded and then applies a creamy polish, Revlon Nail Enamel in Sheer Sweetie, to keep it simple. “We wanted a soft color that would really complement the bold lip,” says Choi. “To guarantee a finished look, you should always use three coats, as it ensures that the polish will look perfectly opaque and smooth.”
Redken Creative Consultant Guido created a simple yet stylized look by juxtaposing a clean, shellacked finish on top with a more natural and soft finish throughout the ends. “I wanted to take the Rag & Bone girl and give her a bit more style. By adding different textures and products in the hair, and by using them a bit more extremely, I was able to create a modern element to this more natural, grunge look.”
To Create the Look
Step 1. Apply Redken Satinwear 02 Prepping Blow-dry Lotion to damp hair from root to ends.
Step 2. Create a clean middle part.
Step 3. Blow-dry hair straight until reaching mid-lengths.
Step 4. Spray mid-lengths and ends with a little water, adding more Satinwear 02 Prepping Blow-dry Lotion lotion if needed. Allow hair to air-dry for natural texture.
Step 5. Apply Redken Forceful 23 Super-strength Finishing Spray to the straight part to create a flat, clean, and crisp look on top, making sure to eliminate any flyaways.
Step 6. Use a dryer on top of head to set the hairspray and add shine.
