Coco Johnsen runway make up featured tribal looks and super comic book hero’s inspirations for her Los Angeles Fashion Week show.
Make up this season was used more as a mask or a shield helping to create each character. The head of make up decided to use no highlighter and instead we used a lot of moisturizer to make the skin glow and luxurious grease pencils around the eyes. All make up sponsored by Star Looks.
Make Up : Fidel Gonzales, Mcintyre Management.
Hair : Tonya Lee, Luxelabbelair
Nails : Jolene Canzoner Broduer
Location : Style Fashion Week, The Reef, Los Angeles, CA.
When it comes to her runway show fashion designer Coco Johnsen has taken into consideration every little detail. And no detail is smaller than the models’ fingertips, which this season showcased every nail-art trend around: silver stars, faux snakeskin, shiny metallics, single black polka dots and vintage model photo’s from her past career as a model. We rounded up her favorite nail looks for the 2016 Warrior Collection.

And apparently, there’s a new emphasis on the word “art.” Independent curator Rita de Alencar Pinto, who has devoted the past three years to incorporating the practice of high-end manicures into the art world, has now created an atelier for nail art on Chrystie Street. As part of Vanity Projects, which has hosted pop-up nail painting events at MoMA PS1, the Brooklyn Museum, and NADA since 2010, nail art now has a permanent home.
Like any museum or art gallery, the atelier hosts a series of rotating exhibitions of contemporary video art, which is projected on the salon’s walls. Visitors receive a pair of wireless headphones to listen to audio commentary about the works — while getting manicures, obviously. The current exhibit entitled “Girls, Girls, Girls” features pieces by 10 female video artists. The salon also hosts a nail artists in-residence program, which hosts the industry’s greatest talents in two-week installments.
As far as the actual nail art goes, the salon specializes in art history-inspired manicures,
featuring works by de Chirico, Magritte, Dali, Warhol, and Picasso, among others. Manicures and pedicures at this atelier start at $50, but we’re thinking the one-hour art education session you’re getting with the service is pretty much priceless. (Blouin Art Info)

Blame Lenny Kravitz, Adam Levine, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, David Beckham and the rest of the facial hair-loving celebs. Blame hipster girls fawning over bearded musicians. Blame the modern caveman movement with its paleo diet and DIY ethos.
Whatever you blame, there’s no doubt that scruffy faces — and full-on beards — have been making a comeback. So much so that North American razor sales are way down, and an increasing number of British men are getting — wait for it — facial hair transplants.
Procter & Gamble, which owns shaving giant Gillette, recently announced that its razor sales are falling in developed markets. Energizer’s Schick razor has also taken a recent hit, with sales dropping 10 percent in the last year.
