Carmen Marc Valvo Spring 2012 w/ MAC & Ted Gibson

I always look forward to Carmen Marc Valvo. Not just the show but the backstage. I know the clothes will be  beautiful and elegant and I get a chance to see them close up where you can really appreciate the detail . Then there is the adorable and fun team of Romero Jennings for MAC doing makeup and Ted Gibson doing the hair on behalf of

This season's show makeup look is fresh and All American  with a bold lip and a lightly made up face. As Romero says in the video it's what many women do everyday. Foundation , mascara and a bold lip.  He debuted a new red lipstick from MAC coming in Spring , which is a red/coral hybrid called Scarlet Ibis.  He used Cherry lip pencil and Basic Red pigment over the lips. Skin has the new Matchmaster foundation , Taupe Sculpt powder  on cheeks for contour and Pearl CCB on top of cheekbones. The eyes have Coffee eye pencil , Omega eye shadow and Zoom Lash.

For the hair Ted was inspired by Peggy Lipton and her always perfect sleek hair .  He sleeked it back at the top to tuck behind the ears, leaving the back straight and shiny. He sprayed his own brand hairspray into his palm and lightly ran it down the hair for hold.

The clothes were as lovely as expected  and  there were more casually elegant looks like silk shorts and palazzo pants. The white/silver beaded tank dress was  a favorite  and it was  nice to see the models sporting flats and not teetering heels. That is All American. A pretty dress, flowing hair and  a sharp sandal.
