There's no better way to pick up what's hot in beauty than to hang out backstage at this season's runway shows. What's more is being there as a Nuovo master stylist, makeup artist and educator as Marissa Dean is wont to do. In fact, over the years she's clocked time with collections like OAKNYC, Chiara Boni, Alejandra Alonso Rojas, Francesca Liberatore and Marcel Osterag.
 
I caught up with her to learn what we need to know for summer looks, her best runway tips and even how to rock athleisure beauty--here's what works on the runway and off. And if you want to book a one-on-one with Marissa to get party-ready with a talented woman in the know, you can find her at Nuovo Salon Group, (941) 684-9000, ext 6.

Since we are right on the cusp, let’s jump right into summer makeup. How should we consider altering our beauty routine in the warmer months?

Summer is upon us, and it’s all about hydration and beautiful pops of color. Taking care of your skin is so important! Your face is your canvas, and hydration will set you up for success and help keep your makeup looking fabulous all day long. I personally love the Aveda Skin line; it works for every skin type. 

What’s one tip every girl can pick up from the Spring/Summer 2017 Runways?

Lashes for days! Invest in a great eyelash curler (my favorite one is Kevyn Aucoin), then, after curling, apply two ore three coats of mascara.

A "no-makeup" makeup look was also huge on the runways. Get it by using a great tinted moisturizer--it will give you that "glow" that we all want without feeling heavy. 

Electric color is everywhere. What are your suggestions for those who want to try the look, but are a little intimidated? 

Don't be afraid to play! This look is all about enhancing your favorite features. If you love your eyes, add a pop of color--try different shades of pink, purple, even blue. For a daytime look, you can make it very soft, and add more for an evening look. If you love your lips, show them off. You get the idea! 

Since bold is beautiful right now, how about standout lip color suggestions all skin tones?

It's all about creating color synergy. Not only does your skin tone dictate what colors work best on you but so does your hair color. Both have cool and warm tones. Here are lip colors that work for different hair tones:

Warm blonde: light pink 
Warm red: soft red (copper tone)
Warm brunette: dark red
Cool blonde: purple
Cool red: fuchsia 
Cool brunette: bright red

Let's talk athleisure beauty. What products do you suggest to look fresh, but not too made up?

 
Three simple products are all you need: tinted moisturizer, great mascara and lip gloss. With these, you'll be ready to take on the day.
