“It’s about that girl on vacation,” said Uzo, lead makeup artist for Nars, backstage at Tanya Taylor, where the look channeled Natalie Wood from the Sixties. “What’s different between the Sixties look and our look for today is there is no cat liner, because for summer you don’t wear a lot of makeup,” said Uzo. The skin played center stage as Uzo looked to accentuate the natural paleness by going one shade lighter. “It’s not about going for the Goth look, but like a marble statue, which is a little more 3-D,” said Uzo. To achieve the marble facade, the Nars team used Copacabana illuminator and multiples to give highlight to the cheekbones. In the minimalist spirit, a subtle eye and nude lip completed the girl on vacation. Keeping with the Sixties vibe, hairstylist Allen Wood for Bumble and bumble created an effortless ponytail. Half of the models were given head scarves made from prints from Tanya Taylor’s collection. Nails were finished with a matte French manicure with black tips by Essie.
