The start of the new season brings the start of new trends, and this season we're going back to basics! Post summer colours come through in beige and neutral tones; from natural earthy-toned hair, to soft coloured lips and a barely-there mani. As with most trends, the Kardashians are first to lead the way, and with her stunning natural look at the weekend, Kim Kardashian was no exception.
Stylist to the stars, Michael Silva created the natural, wet-look style on Kim using Kenra Platinum products (exclusive in the UK to Salon Services
) and was kind enough to give us a breakdown of how he created the look that was the talk of the VMA's.
“Kim and I decided to keep her hair fresh and sexy, perfecting and enhancing her natural texture. A continuation of summery, beach beauty. There is something effortlessly beautiful in playing up natural texture, but of course always making it polished and beautiful.” - Michael Silva
: Prep and prime before layering Kenra Platinum
on top of hair to lock-in moisture.
: Spray a texturizing product
throughout the hair, working it through with your
hands, to bring out the natural wave.
: Thoroughly dry the hair with a diffuser
making sure not to touch it too much. Michael used the
GHD Air Hairdryer
on Kim, available at an
exclusive trade price here
: After the hair was completely dry, Michael took the
GHD Platinum Styler
section by section, starting from the back,
and perfected the wavy texture and also smoothed
some areas where needed.
: Spray a touch of Kenra Platinum Silkening
and touching the ends with a few more drops
of Kenra Platinum Revive Oil
Use a finishing spray all over to lock the style
and shine in place and protect against humidity.
It's not just Kim's hair that was completely on point as she graced the white carpet at the weekend. Kim's locks were complimented by her fresh-faced, natural makeup and glowing skin, giving her that 'just stepped off my private yacht' laid-back look that is going to be huge this A/W season. We've pulled together a list of makeup essentials to achieve Kim's look at home or on your clients:
Lord and Berry Contour Palette
Lord and Berry Cream Foundation
Lord and Berry Bronzer in 'Sienna'
Lord and Berry 'Skin Lipgloss' in shade Cookie
Lord and Berry Magic Brow Pencil
Ardell Soft Touch Lash in '152'
To finish off her natural look, Kim accompanied her laid-back locks and sun-kissed skin with a nude, natural manicure. We love OPI's 'Pale to the Chief
' shade from the Limited Edition OPI Washington Collection to create that slight hint of colour with a high shine.
