Backstage Beauty (and Beauties) at the Academy of Art University Fall ’13 Fashion Show

Models don’t need a lot of help in the beauty department–they are models after all–but each season we try to craft a look that adds a little something extra to the collections. For Fall ’13 , Simon Ungless opted for a slightly futuristic look. The hair was sleek and sexy, combed  into a twist with a long ponytail down the back. The subtle twist was just enough to keep things interesting, without stealing the show.

And for the makeup, this season it was all about the eyes. Most of the models were given a dark, angular eye with a hint of silver concentrated at the center of the lid, finishing the look with lots of dark liner and several coats of mascara. And the models donning Heather Scholl’s collection sported a vibrant orange shadow that played perfectly on the bright hues used throughout the collection.

We’ve gathered a few of our favorite backstage beauty shots to show you the process step-by-step!
