Yes, this season’s top beauty looks skew prim and proper,
but that doesn’t mean you have to downplay the drama

Want to approximate the
airy updos seen at the Diane
von Furstenberg show? Start
by applying a volumizing
mousse to damp hair before
roughly blow-drying to add
volume. Back-comb all over,
then create a loose twist at
the center-back of your head
and secure with bobby pins.
TRY: Garnier Fructis Style XXL
Body Thickening Mousse,
$5.50 at drugstores and
mass-market retailers.

To achieve spring’s exaggerated
cat eye, makeup artist Susana
Hong (who created the looks
on these pages) suggests tracing
your lash line with a stiff eyeliner
brush dipped in a cream-based
formula. Aiming for the outer
edge of your eyebrow, create
a small flick at the end.

Legendary makeup artist Pat McGrath applied eight sets of false lashes to the models backstage
at Louis Vuitton, but you can still command attention with just one. First, trim the lash strip to
fit your lash line, then line your eyes, top and bottom, with black eyeliner. Next, carefully apply
lash glue to the strip, allowing it to dry for a few minutes before placing it at the root of your
lashes with tweezers. To amplify the look, layer on single lashes to the outer corners.

Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury
created this sensual orchidinspired lip for Prabal Gurung’s
spring show. To get the look,
Hong suggests applying a
fuchsia lipstick first, then, with
your finger, dabbing on a
darker plum shade to just the
inner portion of your lips.

Get a flattering flush by buffing on a peachy-pink blush, the shade of choice
at Ralph Lauren and Preen this season. Using a fluffy blush brush, apply the
powder directly to the apples of your cheeks, then swirl the brush in a circular
motion upward and outward toward your hairline to diffuse the colour.
