Ceremonial Stares are the Coolest Spring Look from MAC at Tome | Backstage Beauty
If you’ve been itching to try Nigerian-American artist Laolu Senbajo’s body art from Bey’s “Sorry” video, but can’t quite seem to make the intensely emotive paint patterns work for your every day, M•A•C‘s makeup at Tome spring 2017 might be the gateway look. Refreshingly, the unique beauty of women of different ages, sizes and ethnicities was on display during Tome’s show. That continued down to the natural beauty of the models, but with a happy burst of white as an unexpected accent around the eyes. It is almost a visual interpretation of “smizing.” We spotted model Irina Kravchenko on the street still wearing the look, and we couldn’t blame her a bit.

The makeup was inspired by a Dinka (a tribe in the Upper Nile region of South Sudan) ceremonial paint. Lead M•A•C artist Diane Kendal let the models’ individual beauty shine through but added feathery brushstrokes along the sides of the eyes.
Aveda artists followed the tendencies of each woman’s hair, accentuating natural waves, curls and texture with select products.
Antoinette Beenders, lead hair stylist for Aveda, told Nordstrom national beauty director Marynell Maddox that Aveda was working with models in very individual ways. She took the natural beauty of each person’s hair and enhanced it.
