Create the Rosa Faia Valentine's Day Hair and Makeup Look

Anita Intimate Apparel debuted its spring '14 styles just in time for Valentine's Day. Jasmine, stylist at Oscar Blandi Salon on Madison Avenue, NYC, explains how to recreate the hair and makeup look from the romantic Rosa Faia Collection.

Achieve this look on hair that's a couple days old. It's very Bridget Bardot with height and volume on top of the head, pinned back into a modern take on the french twist.

1. Use Oscar Blandi dry shampoo to get rid of any natural oils. Smooth out hairline. (Dry shampoo should be sprayed at root. This gives you a great cushion for the teasing aspect of it.)
2. Tease the whole head.
3. Smooth the hairline out with a Mason Pearson brush. Brush back as if you were putting the hair in ponytail, using very soft strokes.  You want to leave a lot of volume on top and smooth sides tighter.
4. On one side of the head in the front, brush to the back. Use bobby pins in the back of the head to secure, grabbing hairline from the bottom and working your way upward just past the occipital bone.
5. Once you have secured one side, switch to the other. Smooth tighter around the ears, releasing a lot of volume on top. Fold the hair under in back using hairpins, hooking them to bobby pins you have used on the other side.
6. Finish off with hairspray all over for all the flyaways.

Makeup here is very bold in the eyes with striking bold liner and smokey shadow on the bottom lid that connects to the top. Use rosy lipstick to finish off the look. There is a lot of focus on clean foundation.
1. Use HD primer first and follow it with foundation.
2. Use liquid liner on top lid, extending it into a cat eye.
3. Use a Smokey gray/black shadow on bottom lid and connect bottom to top liquid liner.
4. Use a little rosy cheek blush to enhance cheekbones.
5. To finish everything off, use a plum lipstick to add a pop of color.
