The inspiration for the beauty was a city girl in the country. "She's an urban girl going down to the farm," explained hairstylist Sam McKnight.
"The look is soft, fresh, and natural," said makeup artist Peter Philips. "It's a fresh and optimistic show. She's a romantic girl."
Philips used shades from Chanel's spring 2010 makeup line to create the look. On the eyes: Philips used all four shades from the Kaska Beige shadow quad. He swept the amethyst shade along the top lash line; the bronze color on the lids and along the inner and outer corners; the mauve-taupe shade along the crease up to the browbone; and the champage on the browbone.
For a healthy flush, Philips brushed Imprevu, a pinky-bronze powder blush, onto the cheekbones.
On the lips? Insouciante, a shimmery pink-beige, also launching in the spring.
"It's slightly Brigitte Bardot, slightly Marie Antoinette," said hairstylist McKnight of the disheveled beehive. "It's sexy and girlie—very coquettish."
After prepping the hair with texturizing spray, McKnight blow-dried the hair. He then gathered it into a high ponytail, which he teased and folded at the base, and tucked the ends under and pinned them, creating a soft updo.
