Tibi’s Runway Beauty Is for Girls Who Want to Have Fun (with Minimal Makeup) | Backstage Beauty

Tibi designer Amy Smilovic envisions spring with a nod to 1980s style, or its un-style, according to Smilovic. For the designer, that period was obviously an energetic era, when fashion wasn’t so prescriptive and serious. Her goal this season was to create something less about perfection and more about authenticity. Her suiting and dresses acted like blank canvases that were lightly adorned with colorful PVC corsets, belts, stripes and straps.

The beauty, led by Bobbi Brown and JINsoon, followed suit. Each model’s look was tailor-made to enhance her specific features without detracting from her unique beauty and that of the clothes. The result? Luminous skin with touches of color, hints of lime green, lilac and tangerine, similar to Smilovic’s accents on her sporty separates and power suits.

Get the Healthy Glow from kate spade new york’s Playful Runway | Backstage Beauty

Inspired by the romantic energy of New Orleans, kate spade new york’s 2018 spring collection exudes whimsy and fun with feminine floral patterns, lace hemlines and plenty of pinks. The delicate M·A·C makeup from the show featured a healthy, flushed cheek on the models’ radiant skin, and was finished with a barely there, dusty-rose pout that harmonized with Deborah Lloyd’s youthful and spirited spring nail designs. From lips to tips, the overall softness of this beauty culminated with subtle, easy-to-recreate nail art from Deborah Lippmann.

Apply Your Makeup Like a Pro: Trish McEvoy on How to Use Her New Brush Kit (A Limited-Edition Beauty Exclusive)

As you look over your latest stockpile of Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusive scores, you might be wondering how to get the most bang out of your beauty bounty. After all, it’s not just about what makeup you’re using, but how you’re applying it. Without the right tools and know-how, what was meant to be a flawless fine line can easily end up a broad, shaky stroke.

To make things a bit easier, we’ve created this makeup-brush cheat sheet. And to make sure we did a bang-up job, we enlisted the help of world-renowned makeup maven and brush buff Trish McEvoy, who created a special limited-edition eight-piece brush set (officially known as the Power of Brushes Confident Collection) just for this year’s Anniversary Sale. Not only is the portable set everything most of us need in our daily repertoire, it’s also priced to sell out fast at $135 (total value is $402.50).

So without further ado, here’s Trish McEvoy on how to sweep, wiggle and glide your way to pro-level perfection.

Get a Summer Glow with Charlotte Tilbury’s (Nordstrom-Exclusive) Mask, Palette and Lipstick

By the time winter ends, most of us could use a new seasonal look and a little help appearing refreshed. Sure, you could drink a lot of water and get a ton of sleep (both easier said than done), but makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury has given us a customizable way to cheat gorgeous, healthy skin. The sought-after makeup artist is known for the dewy, glamorous red carpet looks she creates for celebs. “I’ve always been about cascading glow across the cheekbones and dripping candlelight atop the collarbones,” Tilbury says. “It’s the illusion of light on the skin, and the effects of the camera lenses that is instantly youth-boosting, slimming, elongating and perfecting.”

Fresh, Natural Makeup for Night | The Realest, Beauty Edition

_AA_3047

For our most recent installment of The Realest, our real-woman model Caitlin Braam showed us around her office—a brewery and cidery where she is president of both companies.

We spent the day photographing her around her workplace and outfitting her with new dresses to try for spring. Since we had a hair and makeup artist on hand as well as a photographer, we thought we’d share how to get her fresh, minimalist and perfect-for-spring makeup look. Bonus: artist Jamyrlyn Mallory takes it from day to night with a pop-of-color lip and just the right amount of bronzer and contour from the new NARS Hot Sand Collection. Pretty. Easy.
