Prior to Jill Stuart’s show on Saturday morning, makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury and hairstylist Bob Recine teamed up for the beauty look.

Tilbury, using Stuart’s own line of color cosmetics, did what she called an overall “lush bronze,” look.

On the eyes, Tilbury used a Stuart eyeshadow palette, from which she blended a pewter silver and antique bronze all around the eye, and all over the lids. The corners of the eyes got a smudge of pale gold for contrast.

“It’s a thick, strong eye,” said [Tilbury].

She even gave a touch of bronze to the tip of the nose and the bow of the lip. And some contour was added under highlighted cheekbones. Rounding out the look was a pretty, peachy-coral stained lip, which matched many of the colors in the palette of the fashion collection.

Recine prepped the roots of the hair for volume with L’Oreal’s Mousse Volupté from the brand’s L’Oreal Professionnel Texture Expert line then finished the do’s with the same line’s Infinium 3 hairspray.

The result? Long, flowing down-dos out of center parts with lots of movement, fluttering elegantly as girls walked the runway.

“We’re doing clean, beautiful straight hair — shiny, blunt — but full,” he said. “We’re not doing too much to the girls.

“The inspiration comes from beauty,” Recine remarked. “The most powerful beauty of all is confidence [because] perfecting beauty sacrifices character.”
