The brand imagery is always beautiful and positive. To now be a part of that is a dream come true!”

When she is not modeling, Jourdan is a proud mother to her son Riley who was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia.  This has led to Jourdan’s active involvement as the Parent Ambassador for the Sickle Cell Disease Association of America.  In addition to being a mother and philanthropist, Jourdan is a self-taught cook and hosts a lifestyle and cooking program titled “Well Dunn with Jourdan Dunn.”  The show is available through Jay Z’s YouTube channel, Life+Times, and features a different celebrity guest each episode.

SPRING 2014 BEAUTY TRENDS

Orange Lips and Tips

Bright, almost neon shades of orange will be the go-to hue for spring. Backstage at DKNY, Maybelline New York’s Color Sensational Vivids Lipcolor in Electric Orange was applied to models’ lips, then blotted for a matte, almost stained finish. Brows were groomed and shaped using the brand’s Master Shape Brow Pencil. The rest of the face was left bare. “A flawless complexion is the perfect canvas for standout lips and clothes that steal the show,” said makeup artist Charlotte Willer.

At SUNO, it was all about an electric pop of citrus on the nails. Models wore Maybelline New York’s Color Show Nail Lacquer in Orange Fix, a bright tangerine shade. Backstage at Mara Hoffman, the same vivid hue was used to create a spectrum design on models’ nails.

Makeup artist Alice Lane used an angled shadow brush to draw Color Tattoo Cream Gel Shadow in Too Cool in a smooth, straight line across the upper lashline and out toward the temples. The shimmery white shade was also applied to the inner corners of the eyes, for an ethereal, fairy-esque look. Continue reading
