As soon as I saw the Diane von Furstenberg runway show I knew I would be re-creating the look inspired by the confident woman she expressed through her collection. Since I am focusing on using natural products, I am breaking down how you can achieve this elegant yet effortless look using the best in green beauty.
The hair and makeup were chic but messy and undone, just the way I like it. Perfect to wear for an event or night out. The extraordinary artist, Pat McGrath worked her magic creating a smokey eye with layered black and brown pencil and cream eyeshadow. The hairstylist, Orlando Pita called the style the “seductress knot”. It was pulled back at the nape of the neck, not too high, not too low in a ponytail and then pinned into an effortless bun with a few strands pulled out.
Years ago, DVF was my first internship and jump-started my career into the fashion world at age 16. She was a huge inspiration to me at the time and still is. I will never forget the energy of the room when she was around and her friendly and warm nature. She introduced me to the idea of what it meant to truly empower and support women. DVF is a force and I feel extremely lucky to have been able to have that experience.
I hope this tutorial shows you that by using natural products you can achieve any look you want, expressing yourself with products that will benefit your skin instead of exposing it to chemicals. It is ok to start slow, finding the companies that you love is a journey and there is no rush. Even if you just switch out your shampoo or lipstick, you will be doing your body a favor and I can guarantee you will be amazed at the results.
