5 Things I Learned Backstage at Stella McCartney

Who doesn’t want to be a Stella girl? That effortlessly cool, eco-conscious woman, someone who treads that line of downtown spunk and ladylike measure…

Beyond the clothes, there’s also that super natural (and supernatural) beauty.
I went backstage yesterday before the debut of McCartney’s Resort 16 collection about their never-fail tricks:

1. Use hairspray on your hairbrush NOT your hair
Holds firm but looks way more natural according to Frank Rizzieri who was there for Aveda.

2. Keep. It. Real.
Especially when it comes to eyeliner – Gucci Westman attests that it looks better when there’s a little unevenness.

3. Find your natural side part…
A side part always looks best when it lines up with the highest part of the arch in your brow.

4. Pearl makes perfect.
The less matte a nail polish is, the more forgiving it is aka little smudges don’t show up says Madeline Poole, who led on nails for Sally Hansen.

5. Freckles can be faked.
It’s just all about making them asymmetrical, a little uneven like your liner…

What are some beauty lessons you’ve taken from the runway?
