"The clothes have a lot of patterns, prints, and bright fabrics—and the theme of the show is a circus—so I wanted to do simple, gorgeous faces," said makeup artist Pat McGrath. "The look is very fresh."
McGrath skipped shadow, but applied black cream eyeliner and coats of mascara (to create purposely clumpy lashes). She brushed ballerina pink blush onto the apples of the cheeks, and finished with clear lip balm.
"The hair is very '60s: polished, side-parted, and flipped up at the bottom," said hairstylist Garren. To get the look, he blew the hair out straight, and flatironed it. After that, he used a medium-barrel curling iron and rollers to create volume—and a flip at the ends.
