This season, Mara Hoffman's designs were inspired by the South American desert and cowboys, which naturally called for bronzed skin and windswept hair. Make Up For Ever Alliance Makeup Artist Lottie created the sun hit faces using Mat Bronze as a contour and added Shine On Powder to the tops of the cheeks for a radiant glow. She created a brown metallic smoky eye with a gold highlight in the inner corner of the eyes. "The whole look is like they've been riding horses in the desert," Lottie said.

Nick Iriwn for Tigi created the statement hair. "I wanted to create hair that will work equally without a hat as it will with a hat," he said. So he parted the hair down the middle and sprayed 2-inch sections with Tigi Catwalk Your Highness Spray and wrapped them around his finger, pinned them and set them using a flat iron. He brushed out the texture and pinned it into a light kind of 70's bob shape.
