Natural Glow: Phresh Spring ’16

Go behind the scenes of our Phresh Spring 2016 Shoot! This season, in honor of how Spring brings the vibrance back into the world, we chose to focus on color and shine. 


This week we chat with our hairstylist Mandy, who did this beautiful blowout for the shoot. Our esthetician Kate will also tell us how we can re-create this glowing spring makeup with Jane Iredale.

Mandy, give us the details on how you styled your model Tori’s hair?

I started with a blowout with round brushes to get a great base for the style. Then I used a 1 inch curling iron to give Tori voluminous curls.

What products did you use?

I prepped her hair with Oribe Volumista Mist and Royal Blowout Heat Protectant Spray. Then, after drying and curling, I used Oribe Dry Thick to add more volume at the roots and throughout the lengths of the hair. I finished with Oribe Shine Light Reflecting Spray. It’s an amazing product because it’s lightweight but adds major glossiness, tames flyaways, and illuminates color to bring out the best in your hair.

Kate, how can we re-create Tori’s look at home?

Start by prepping the skin with Jane Iredale’s Smooth Affair primer. It contains brighteners like grapefruit extract to bring out your natural radiance, while hydrating and minimizing pores. Then, get that flawless skin with Glow Time full coverage mineral BB cream, and Copper Wind Purepressed Blush. For the eyes, use Purepressed eyeshadows in Dawn, a shimmering rose brown, and Bone, a matte cream. Apply Dawn all over the lid, up just past the brow bone, softening as you go. Then blend in Bone from that point up to the brows, and in the inner corner of the eyes to highlight. Then fill in the brows with the Great Shape brow kit in Blonde and top lashes with Black Ice Longest Lash Mascara. Finish the look with Spice lipliner all over the lips, and top with Sharon Puremoist Lipstick, a creamy matte nude.
