Backstage at Dennis Basso on Tuesday, makeup artist Kabuki for Sephora created a modern-day pinup-girl look. Lips were the focus, set apart with a burnt orange shade from Bite Beauty called Toast.

He prepped skin with Smashbox Photo Matte Anti-Shine. High along the cheeks, he applied a light, warm pink shade called Obsessed from Marc Jacobs Beauty’s Shameless Bold Blush. For the eyes, he used Urban Decay shadow primer on the lids as a base for black liquid liner, which he winged out at the ends. He applied false, wing-shaped lashes, sized shorter than the lid, and mascara on top of them.

Jay Ree with John Barrett Salon was originally tempted to create a big-hair look for the show, but was inspired by a model’s easy, natural ponytail and went that route instead. He texturized hair using Shu Uemura Art of Hair Volume Maker, an invisible powder, and with his hands, gathered it into a low pony and wrapped hair over the elastic. Where needed, he used a curling iron to create a bit of movement.

Models wore Incoco color strips in Like a Dream (a sheer shimmering shade) on nails and Angel Blush (a light pink shade) on toes.
