Backstage Beauty: The Heart Truth Red Dress Collection

The Jenner girls backstage with Jenny Belding. 
At tonight’s The Heart Truth Red Dress Collection Fashion Show I caught up with some of the industry’s best for the inside scoop on what to expect at this week’s shows. 

Sarah Lucero with Brenda Strong 
For the fall, Stila makeup artist Sarah Lucero is excited for dark bold lips that are super glossy– think patent leather-inspired. Charlie Riddle, another makeup artist, seconds this “no more matte” statement and sees super high shine taking over the beauty world for at least the next two seasons.  Regardless of trends however, he never goes backstage without a tube of Stay All Day 10-in-1 HB Beauty Balm: it hydrates, evens texture and color corrects–making it his fashion week essential. 

For hair, the lovely Jenny Balding thinks the very big, wavy, bohemian look is coming to an end and instead we should focus on sleek, modern looks or, if going the more curly route, then definitely opt for slightly texturized (Kate moss-esque) hair.  She also expects more people to embrace the colored hair tread this spring and fall and recommends going for a dusty pink or lilac. 
Jillian Michaels with Deborah Lippmann
For nails, Deborah Lippmann was all about red, and rightfully so as the show was all about raising heart disease awareness ( the Red Dress was introduced as the national symbol for women and heart disease awareness in 2002). Each model got to choose from an assortment of reds and the adorable Gabby Douglas opted for “Single Ladies”, while Jillian Michaels went for the super classic “ Lady is a Tramp” shade. 

PS: Deborah told me she and Brenda Strong (who walked the runway) went to college together and post-grad were roommates in LA!  Also she doesn’t think color is going anywhere so, for now, nude nails are on hold.
