Back in the Summer of 2016, we were hired by a marketing agency to help piece together vintage looks for the restaurant launch of Ricarda’s in Toronto. The agency was using a street team of promotional models to boost the restaurant launch for a two day event where the street teams rode bikes through the city. Two hair and two makeup artists were needed for the styling for the street team activation which was a 50’s and 60’s vintage Mediterranean inspired look.
Here are some of the beauty tips we used to keep the street team looks sweat-proof and last through the summer heat all day long:
- Hair was set in pins to cool while makeup was completed to really hold the vintage wave
- We used Urban Decay All Nighter setting sprat before, during and after application to be sure the makeup wouldn’t nudge
- Quick Lip Tip – hydrate lips with a rich balm prior to any makeup application. Let the balm sit and once the lips are ready, apply a primer first then line the lips with a red liner for definition and proceed with lipstick, blot and repeat
- Flash lashes were used for a doe eyed look
We had so much fun using our creativity putting together these looks for the street team activation! The restaurant has been a huge success since the launch with another location opened in Oakville.
