Backstage at Tracy Reese with Mary Kay

​This September marks my sixth year attending New York fashion week, and it never fails to amaze me that I am lucky enough to be involved in such an amazing experience. Sure, it can be stressful and busy and hectic, but it’s such an incredible feeling when all the chaos settles down just minutes before the lights go dim, and the music starts pumping through the speakers. Everyone becomes still and very focused, waiting with baited breath for the lights to go bright and see that first model stride out onto the runway, wearing some incredible outfit, with flawless hair and makeup. It’s just so exciting!

So earlier this week, when I was asked to attend the Tracy Reese show and go backstage on behalf of Mary Kay I of course jumped at the chance to get a sneak peek behind the scenes to see and learn about the makeup for the show. I haven’t done a lot of backstage in the past but love doing so because I find it fascinating to see how everything comes together as well as learning where the designer’s inspiration comes from. The shows are definitely focused on the clothing, but there is so much more that goes into the overall look.

Whenever I step backstage, I am always in awe of how many people it takes to make everything happen. There are stylists, makeup artists, hair stylists, nail artists, coordinators, photographers, media, press, you name it and everyone has a very specific and timely job to do. It looks a bit like pure chaos, but everyone just works together to make the magic happen that we see on the runway.

The Tracy Reese SS16 collection was inspired by light; focusing on a theme of transparency and layering fabrics together. By using sequins and beautiful rhinestones, Tracy incorporated shine and sparkle but in subtle and organic ways. The beauty look translated by celebrating shine and luminosity, giving off a natural yet modern, fresh aesthetic.

What a beautiful show! I had such a fun time and can’t wait to try this makeup look on myself! Even though it is geared toward spring, I think by wearing a slightly darker lip for fall, this makeup look is really versatile. Love it too? Learn how you can get the look below!
GET THE LOOK:

Tracy Reese Spring/Summer 2016 Makeup:

SKIN:

1. Prep your skin for a glowing, luminous finish. First, use the Satin Lips Mask, which is the best prep for lipstick ever. Apply it to the lips for 1-2 minutes to
exfoliate.

2. Mix TimeWise Repair® Volu-Firm Night Treatment with Retinol
with TimeWise® Luminous-Wear Liquid Foundation
to get that radiant look. You can use Mary Kay Concealer under your eyes as needed.

3. Apply Mary Kay Extra Emollient Night Cream on the brow bone and around the eye area for a subtle glow.

EYES:

1. Create a defined lash by using Lash Love Lengthening Mascara in black.

2. To get the bronzed eye look, use Mary Kay Mineral Eye Color in Amber Blaze if you have fair skin or Rosegold if you have darker skin. Start at the lash line and blend downward with a fluffy brush.

3. On top of the shadow, use Mary Kay’s At Play Bold Fluid Eyeliner in Gold Metal
but make sure to blend it in with the shadow, downward and across the
lash line using a pointy brush.

4. To really get an extra bit of shimmer and shine, dab NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss
in Silver Moon onto the lid.

LIPS:

1. Now that your lips are prepped, use True Dimensions Lipstick in Sizzling Red to get a dewy, “bitten” lip by dabbing on just above the top lip line and blend with fingers to create a stain.

2. Apply NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss in Pink Wink on top to the center of the lip.

CHEEKS:

1. You want to get a “just caught in the wind” look so use Mary Kay At Play Lip
& Cheek Stick in Peach Pop for fair skin or Razzleberry dark skin, which will give you a soft, rosy glow. Make sure to apply in a circular motion and
blend until you get a soft stain.

2. Optional: Apply rhinestone “freckles” for a bit of sparkle!

Et voila! You just recreated the exact look that was worn at the Tracy Reese show, so congratulations! Now go out on the town and flaunt it! :)
