NYFW Hair: Delicate Braids and Matte Makeup at Novis by Aveda

Aveda Global Creative Director Antoinette Beenders and Aveda Global Artistic Director for Makeup Janelle Geason created gorgeous hair and makeup looks backstage at the Novis Fall/Winter 2014 presentation at New York Fashion Week.

The Hair:
Beenders was inspired by the graphic, bold shapes and earth tones, reminiscent of expressionist art, that pervaded the Fall/Winter collection. She created effortless structure and a delicate braid detail that took hair away from the face using Pure Abundance Style Prep and Pure Abundance Hair Potion.

"This is a great look with young, funky texture that suits the lovely structured clothes," commented Beenders.

The Makeup:
Also inspired by the soft, earthy tones of the collection, Geason created a hydrated, matte complexion with Aveda Inner Light Dual Foundation.

Says Geason, "The clothes for Novis this season are very structured and geometric, so I wanted to create something soft and very beautiful for the makeup. I combined our Eye Shadow Transformer with a new Petal Essence Single Eye Color in Golden Cypress for a shimmery paint-like effect on the eye."
