Earth tones backstage at Nookie

At the Nookie Beach spring 2011 show, which marched the Australian fashion week runway in a flurry of sheer overlays and tribal-esque prints, models radiated with a sunkissed glow. But it wasn’t just a healthy bronze, there was an earthiness; a back-to-nature feel.

Backstage the MAC makeup team busily applied that sunkissed look to the faces of every model and the eyes were a key component of that, popping against the bronzed tones of the face. For the eyes the makeup team used MAC’s Midtone Sepa/Root Cream Colour Base followed by MAC Omega Eyeshadow to create the look.
