Polly Osmond, lead makeup artist for MAC, wanted to create the face of a "practicing ballerina. It's very pretty but it's not perfect," said Osmond. After applying Mineralize Moisture SPF 15 Foundation to complexions, Osmond used MAC powder blush in Tenderling and Well Dressed on cheeks and foreheads and dabbed on Cream Colour Base in Luna with her fingertip to "pop the highlight." She then "matted the T-Zone" on each model to keep shine at bay. Eyes featured Runway Rose--a hue from the brand's new Forecaste eyes palette for spring 2013, while cream Color Base in Shell was added to the center of the eyelid. To keep things light, Osmond opted for brown mascara, rather than black, on top and bottom lashes. Lips were given a soft coat of Cremesheen Lipstick in Creme Cup, mixed with concealer.
Antoinette Beenders, global creative director for Aveda, shaped top-of-head ballerina buns, fraught with a disheveled air. "This is a girl who is at practice rather than a recital," she said. "It's an off-duty ballerina." Beenders first applied Aveda Pure Abundance Style Prep, then blow-dried the product into the hair. Next, she flipped models' heads and pulled hair into a high ponytail, infusing Light Elements Texturizing Creme, raking the style upwards with her fingers. After twisting hair into a "messy, textured bun," she then pinned the style at the base of the bun to secure it. "I'm wrapping hair around itself," said Beenders, who added that flyways were "purposefully" left to float freely. For hold, Beenders misted on Air Control Hair Spray, which she favors for its "very fine" finish. The product was then massaged into the sides to loosen the updo. "It's very wearable," she said. "It's very New York."

And most importantly artistic. He has never compromised his artistic vision for the sake of commodity.” (📷: @zefashioninsider)

According to @laurentsai, former “Terrace House: Aloha State” cast member, she didn’t know she was auditioning for the Japanese version of “Real World.” “I was telling a couple of my friends and someone’s like, ‘That sounds a lot like Terrace House.’ I was like, ’No it can’t be.’” Turns out, it was. But Tsai isn’t just a reality star — she’s an illustrator who has worked with Starbucks Japan and most recently, she’s dipping her toes into the fashion world.
