• "The Spring 2017 beauty [look] was inspired by capturing each model's youthful spirit. We wanted a beautiful natural glow that highlights their radiance," said Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy.

  • Makeup: “I’m mostly using Nars Spring 2017 colors," makeup artist James Kaliardos disclosed backstage. "The Soft Matte Complete Concealer comes in a huge range of shades. It makes you look awake and perfected. I start in the center and then blend it out. I'm also using the Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer Foundation. So, the look features both concealer and foundation, but it’s really natural."

  • “I’m putting Bumpy Ride Blush high on the cheekbone. Putting it here gives you a sun-kissed look and helps with your dark circles. And I'm using this Thessalonique Eyeshadow Duo, the illuminator side. I'm drawing it on with a soft little blush right near the eyelashes, so it’s kind of like eyeliner. And I’m taking it with my finger and dabbing it on the cheekbone and on the bridge of the nose.”

  • “And then I’m using Belle-Île Velvet Stick, which is a golden color, under the bottom eyelashes. It illuminates the eye and kind of lifts it up. No mascara, but I'm curling the eyelashes, and we’re setting the brows in clear. We’re also using Rue Bonaparte Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner. If you went out drinking last night or you’re dehydrated, it will work to pop your eyes open."

  • “Finally, we’re putting Get Off on the lip. It’s a Velvet Matte Lip Pencil. It makes the lips look colored and toned but not overly lipstick-y or creamy. It’s kind of matte, so it looks like skin.” Until Spring 2017, use Nars Vanessa Audacious Lipstick in its place.

  • Hair: Stylist Odile Gilbert was commissioned by Kate and Laura to create hair accessories using scraps of the same tulle, sequins, and chiffon the designers used to create their collection. “It was like what kids would do in school,” Gilbert said of the craft project, which involved applying the materials to small barrettes.

  • For the show, Gilbert applied Wella conditioner to the models’ hair as a leave-in and dried it using a diffuser. She followed up with a spritz of hairspray and then randomly clipped the barrettes into the back of their hair.

  • Nails: "The nail colors were pulled directly from the Rodarte collection, which features a lot of nudes and golds," Morgan Taylor Lacquer lead artist Tracylee said backstage. "I started off using the Morgan Taylor New School Nude. One coat only, with no top coat. I applied that directly onto the nail."

  • "And then I used Morgan Taylor’s Glitter & Gold. I applied it with a detail brush, doing a very thin line on the skin surrounding the nail, not on the nail itself. As soon as they saw the look, Kate and Laura [Mulleavy] were like, “Oh, my God! It looks like jewelry for the nails.”
