BEAUTY SNAPSHOT: Forties Minimalist

THE SCOOP: Inspired by Tagliapietra's jersey dresses with a touch of sheen, Dunkin did soft, sideswept faux bobs with touchable texture. "The clothes are slightly Forties, so the hair has a Forties feel that is reminiscent of the era, not a direct copy," explained Dunkin. The key is keeping your hair from looking too perfect. "It's easy to do because the more random it is the more eclectic it looks." Makeup was soft washes of gray on the eyes and overall, "very, very, very understated," said Butler. "It looks like nothing but when you see the entire look with the hair and clothes it comes together."

GET THE LOOK - MAKEUP: All makeup by M.A.C: Butler smudged Eye Pencil in Slate into the lashes on top and bottom, with more focus underneath the eye than on top. No mascara and no foundation. She pressed Blushcreme in Optimistic Orange onto cheeks and finished by pressing Ember Glow Lip Glass onto lips to reduce the shine.

GET THE LOOK - HAIR: Dunkin used Sebastian Professional Texturizer to give the girls' hair grip and body before rolling into pin curls. Once undone, he rolled hair under and pinned along the bottom of the hairline to make faux bobs. Side part with sexy pieces falling out at random make for a soft look that "looks good on all ages."

GET THE LOOK - NAILS: CND's new neutral color called Putty is a pretty nude color that launches this October.
