The Hair: The loose, wavy look that Noemie Renvoize crafted ensured a ton of movement on the runway. The goal, Noemie said, was to make it look like the models just “woke up like this” (Beyonc-piration?) and haven’t done anything to their hair. Hair was tousled with Prive products (hairspray, texture spray and curl-activating creme) and amplified with a curling iron. Some models got clip-in extensions, while others relied on their natural texture to portray a free-spirited girl. Big-barreled irons gave the hair the desired texture and a variety of flowers finished off the super romantic, carefree hairstyle.

The Makeup: Using Stila products, makeup artist Sarah Lucero created a natural look that she refers to as a “Blazing Beauty.” It was all about capturing the flush you get when you’ve been out in the cold for a bit too long. To get a flushed, rouged face, Lucero started with the Illuminating HD Beauty Balm and Stay All Day Concealer to even out skin tone. She then used Bronzing HD Beauty Balm to build a natural-looking bronze as a base for the color. Convertible Cheek & Lip Color in Poppy gave the models that gorgeous, warm flush across the bridge of the nose and cheeks. On the lips, Lucero went for a velvety rosebud stain using Yumberry Crush Lip & Cheek Stain. To highlight the eyes, she used Pink Glow blush (as well as Shell and Wheat Eyeshadows) and a heavy swipe of a neutral-toned, icy Smudge Stick in Sepia. She added Major Major Mascara for a glamorous, yet natural, look.

The Mani: Each model got her nails tricked out in Incoco nail appliques in Penny Rose for a sparkling, coppery finish.
