Backstage Beauty Beat: Tory Burch


THE HAIR: Eugene Souleiman was nearly able to take the day off with this hairstyle, which he described as being all about subtlety. He took models’ freshly washed hair, parted it in the middle, roughed it up a bit and pushed one side behind the ear. The resulting look was natural, raw and sophisticated. To complete this easy style, he left the ends of the hair tucked into the clothes. The soft hairstyle made it look like all it took was a simple gesture, staying true to Tory Burch’s portrayal of a practical, yet fashionable, woman.

THE MAKEUP: Models sported sultry, sexy makeup that was daytime-appropriate. Using Tory Burch’s own cosmetics line, Diane Kendal crafted a natural-looking face to complement the nonchalant hairstyle and feminine clothes. She applied Bronzer & Blush in Divine to the cheeks, and MAC Cream Color Base in Copper to the eyelids. Kendal blended the color into the brow bone and lightly lined the eyes close to the lashes with a black cream liner. She left the lashes bare, and tinted the lips a warm nude color with Pas du Tout lipstick.

THE MANI: Kim Dimateo for Priti NYC used two coats of a light, iridescent polish called “Fairy’s Petticoat” for an effortless-looking manicure.
