The Breakdown: Inspired by surfer girls, makeup artist Diane Kendal went for a naturally sun-kissed look. She applied Nars’ Sheer Glow foundation and stick concealer to perfect the skin, and then tapped either the brand’s Capadoce, Altai, Vientaine or Portofino matte multiple sticks onto the cheeks to add a beachy glow. On the lips, she applied concealer, which allowed the skin to shine.

The Breakdown: After perfecting the skin with concealer, Yadim created a contour on the eyelids by applying Maybelline’s Brow Drama Pomade Crayon in Blonde to the lids, blending it out into the brow bone, which he considers the summery version of a smoky eye. He then added a tiny bit of lip balm onto the lids and inner corners to add shine, and finished the look with a full brow.

The Show: Proenza Schouler

The Breakdown: The only product needed to recreate this look? Concealer, which makeup artist Diane Kendal applied with a blending brush to spot-correct the models’ skin. Then, she simply applied the same product around the eyes and lids, filled in the brows and applied M.A.C. lip conditioner for hydration.

The Breakdown: To create the natural look at Tory Burch, makeup artist Diane Kendal applied the Honest Beauty True Velvet eyeliner in Cocoa at the lash line, blending it outwards with a small brush. She then defined the eyes even more with a coat of mascara, and kept the rest of the face fresh, applying subtle faux freckles with brown eyeliner and brightening up the cheeks with blush before adding a nude matte lip and Honest Beauty’s Magic Balm (Jessica Alba’s favorite) to eyes, cheeks and lips.
