Tibi’s Spring 2013 Collection features minimalistic and relaxed silhouettes and colors. Pieces are highly wearable, interchangeable, and thus useful to many gals. So it makes perfect sense – backstage makeup and hair was natural and clean to echo Amy Smilovic‘s fashion aesthetic.

Here’s how Kimberly Soane, Makeup Artist for Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, achieved a fresh contemporary look on Tibi NYFW runway models: Eyes were brought to life with a sheer wash of white shadow and a splash of dusty blue. To complement bright eyes, lips were matte and neutral, cheeks were a soft flush, and skin was flawless. Brows were groomed and defined.

Products used included:
Skin: Hydrating Face Cream;
Eyes: White Eye Shadow and Long-Wear Cream Shadow in Blue Moon;
Cheeks: Retouching Powder;
Lips: True Beige Creamy Matte Lip Color.

“Flawless matte skin was our inspiration,” according to Soane.

Kevin Ryan and Frank Rizzieri, Stylists for Aveda, created flowing, sleek, and healthy tresses. They made clean and strong middle parts on model heads. Then a flat iron was applied for no whimsy, and extensions were added on the back. Products used were Aveda’s Volumizing Tonic and Air Control Hair Spray for finish.

Garments (from dresses and suits to tops, pants and skirts) and beauty were seamless crisp partners in
Tibi’s show. Polished and easy to attain for cool on-the-go women.
