New York Fashion Week: Ralph Lauren

Whenever I think of Ralph Lauren ads, I consistently think of fresh, classic beauty. And for the beauty looks at Ralph Lauren's fall 2009 show, the classic English rose beauty was the inspiration.

Makeup artist Tom Pecheux attempted to create perfect skin that was not too matte nor too shiny with a light layer of liquid foundation all over the face. He then applied highlighter to the eyelid, inner corner of the eye and the top of the cheekbones. He then applied black mascara to top and bottom lashes and applied a hint of blush to cheeks. He added a touch of bronzer on top of the blush for a healthy look. Lips were finished with a lip pencil that matched the models' skin tone.

Hair stylist Guido Palau attempted slightly imperfect chignons for the hair. He applied a thickening spray to hair and blew it dry. He then finger-combed hair back and gathered it into a ponytail at the nape of the neck, securing it with knotted black cord. Palau then twisted the hair up into a loose bun, pinning to hide the elastic. Lastly, he pulled several pieces of hair out of each chignon for an imperfect look.
