Behind the Scenes Beauty: Claudia Schiffer and Kate Moss
Our web hair and makeup stylist Russell Oden recreates the look of two of our favorite beauty icons: glam bombshell Claudia Schiffer and grunge girl Kate Moss.
"Claudia Shiffer's Guess Jeans ads always were a favorite of mine. Her seductive makeup and effortlessly swept up hair, to me, will always be her signature look. It was fun to transform our model into this beauty icon. I focused on a few of her key features that I felt would make this look come alive."
"I loosely wrapped sections around a large barrel iron, and then backcombed to add a bit of texture. Then I grabbed the bulk of her hair and piled it on the crown of her hair, and pulled strands out to achieve that tousled, relaxed feel."
"First, I used Becca Luminous Skin Color in NUDE all over the face, and set with Jemma Kidd 01 FAIR Mattifying Powder. Then I lined the upper lid with NOIR Ultra Rich Black Eye Pencil, and concentrated on outer corners and blended it on the bottom lashes towards the inner eye. Then I applied STILA Ebony Shadow to the upper eye lid and swept on lower lashes. Followed with two coats of NVEY Eco Black Mascara on the upper lashes, contoured her cheeks with NYX Rouge Cream Blush and finished with NYX Lip Pencil in Deep Red, blotting off any excess."
"Kate Moss has transitioned through the years effortlessly. There have been so many iconic looks throughout that it was hard for me to focus on just one. I chose to combine her rough grunge hair from the '90s with her iconic smoky eye."
"I took large sections and quickly hit it with the flat iron, then I applied a generous amount of The All-Nighter Hair Powder. Finally, I flipped her hair over and lightly backcombed it to add a rough, undone feel."
Face"I brushed Stila Diamond Lil 056 on the entire eye, then blended Stila Golightly 029 on the crease line, and took Noir Ultra Rich Black Eye Pencil and lined the entire eye. Then brushed Black Cat 001 on the top and bottom of eye, and swept a bit of Stila Cloud 053 on the middle of the lid for a pop of shine. Then applied NYX ALMOND lip pencil to entire lip."
