WWD/George Chinsee Backstage at Suno spring 2014, the hair, nail and makeup looks were simple, but fresh. Very little products on the face, a sleek center part, and a pop of color on the nails. In other words, something you gals could easily wear in your day-to-day lives! Another plus? In speaking with the artists behind these looks, I got three change-your-life tips you can start using right now.
How to get the perfect center part: Hairstylist, Odiele Gilbert, created the illusion of a headband by center parting the hair and tucking back a few pieces. Her tips for getting a straight center part? Using a rat tail comb, draw an imaginary line starting from the tip of your nose up and all the way back down your head. To insure that it's as flat as it was in the Suno show wet your hair down.

How to give your bright nail polish a day-glo effect: "All of the girls are using Orange Fix 220 by Maybelline," said lead manicurist Honey. To give your nails a bright, day-glo effect, "You gotta use that white, girl, use that primer," Honey advised. "Once you put a white polish underneath, it works as a popper and it will make the orange pop even more. Day-glo!"

How to get your blush placement right every time: The cream blush at Suno, Candy Coral also from Maybelline, was applied high and on the apples of the cheeks. "I'm really using all of my fingers to do it," said makeup artist Alice Lane. "Almost like your grandmother's come up and pinched your cheeks, that's how they used to do blush and you never get the placement wrong that way. If you just grab on and feel your cheeks you'll always get it right."
