“It’s a continuation from last year,” explained makeup artist Diane Kendal of the beauty look she created for Prabal Gurung’s Spring 2015 collection. “We wanted to keep the girls looking really organic and healthy.” To create a “fresh, luminous” appearance, Kendal used MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation ($32, under the eyes and across the lids. “By using the Sculpt in those areas, it gives you the illusion of that really healthy glow without doing too much all over the place,” she explained. She also kept the rest of the face simple with curled lashes, filled-in brows, and lip balm. Adding a touch of masculinity, hair stylist Paul Hanlon created sleek, low ponytails using Tresemme Climate Protection Mousse ($5, and a touch of Shine Spray ($6, “With the ponytail, if it’s too high, it goes balletic very easy. It’s meant to look very sporty, very athletic,” he said. On the nails, Jin Soon Choi painted imperfect thin lines on only two fingers per hand using polishes from Gurung’s collection for Sally Hansen. “He has a lot of things going on—colors and textiles and textures and graphics—so we wanted to make [the nails] really minimalistic,” she said. “You know, less is more now.”
