Spring ’14 New York Fashion Week: Backstage at Tracy Reese


Backstage at the Tracy Reese fashion show, makeup artist Mally Roncal prepped the models with makeup described as schizophrenic and happy. Mally gave the girls liquid eyeliner on the top lid in a cat like shape. The bottom lid was reminiscent of the girl who slept in her eyeliner the night before. To achieve the smudged look, Mally took an eyeliner pencil and drew it on her hand. She then took a fluffy eyeliner brush dipped in the eyeliner on her hand and then brushed it on the eye of her model. She continued to play up the eye by giving her model what she calls an “Asian puffy eye.” Using silver eyeliner she lined the inner-corners and took the liner out a little further and then highlighted the eye with a highlighter. Brows were full and given a bit of shine with a clear lip-gloss.
