Tory Burch continued to show that she's capable of more than just logo-ed ballet flats, as her Spring 2011 "elegant sportif" collection works with a woman's natural beauty, enhanced by a smoky taupe eye and long, lustrous hair.
MAKEUP: Diane Kendal for MAC Cosmetics
HAIR: Yannick for Redken
SNAPSHOT: Elegant Sportif
THE SCOOP: Spring 2011 certainly won't be a dull season at Tory Burch, with blood orange, gold lamé, and mustard yellow tones popping from her clothing collection, plus a handful of covet-able accessories and jewelry.
Diane Kendal went for a "Veruschka 1970s glam look -- fresh and beautiful." She created the effect by using a taupe eye pencil, heavy mascara and a touch of blush on the cheek.
"The clothes are almost classic -- but not -- they are sportswear, so the look is fresh, like a young 20-year-old, a girl on the street," said Yannick. Hair was waved and left down, or pulled back into a center-parted low ponytail, the goal being to achieve a decent amount of texture and body.
GET THE LOOK - MAKEUP: All makeup by MAC Cosmetics. Diane Kendal says that mascara and a soft, smoky eye pencil are the key elements to getting this look. Begin with Face and Body Foundation, followed by some Sculpt and Shape Powder in Warm Light on the apples of the cheeks. Use Eye Pencil in Taupe along the top lid line, blending to soften the line, then working in the brown-tone Eyeshadow in Romp on top, adding the Eyeshadow in Retrospect on the top. To finish off the eyes, use a heavy hand with Hot and Naughty Mascara; for the presentation Kendal used 10 strokes each on top and bottom lashes. For lips, use a soft pink with just a fleck of gold, to achieve shine and shimmer without going too glossy.
GET THE LOOK - HAIR: The goal was to create a look that wasn't fussy or ultra-prepared, hence Yannick recommends letting hair take a natural part, with some volume on the top with Redken Rootful 06 Root Lifting Spray. On finer hair, use a big barrel curling iron to give some texture opposed to waves, and spray Redken Workforce 09 Flexible Volumizing Spray to finish.
