It was an amazing cause that gathered so many amazing people to come together and support the Somaly Mam Foundation. The Somaly Mam Foundation was launched in 2007, Somaly has established a funding vehicle to support anti-trafficking organizations and to provide victims and survivors with a platform from which their voices can be heard around the world. Somaly estimates that she and her team have assisted over 7,000 victims to date.
Giving Jackie Cruz the perfect look for this evenings event we wanted to give her a very classic polished style to her overall look of the night. Jackie Cruz wore a David Meister dress and Jimmy Choo shoes.
We started off by setting her hair in large curls. First we gave the hair a light spray of ReStyler to protect the hair from the heat of hot tools. Once the hair was prepped we sprayed the entire area of hair with Shaping Hairspray making sure to get all the hair covered with a light amount. Taking a Babyliss Pro curling iron and curling the back sections of hair downward and pinning each curl before it cools and loses its shape. For the front sections of hair we put the part to one side and with the smaller section we curled it down and pinned continuing this with the other side of the hair. Once all of the hair was curled and pinned another layer of Shaping Hairspray was evenly applied to the hair. The hair was left to cool for at least 45 mins once the hair was set the bobbypins were taken out and the hair was brushed with a soft bristle brush. Brushing the hair in the direction that the curls were set/curled in. Once the hair looked perfect one final coat of High Gloss Hairspray was sprayed all over for show stopping shine and all night hold.
For the makeup we went with a great midnight blue smoky eye that faded into a light silver shade near the inner corners of the eye. To balance out the depth of color in the eyes we went with a nude lip.
