Thanks to the frantic pace of the digital age, the average person has the attention span of a goldfish. (No, seriously. This is a fact supported by an actual study.) Seeing as the fashion sphere changes its mind even faster, we decided to provide you with a condensed report from backstage this season. As much as we'd like to pen novels in the name of lipstick and hairspray, we get it—you're busy. Here, the beauty version of CliffsNotes (all facts, no fluff) that you can easily skim in eight seconds...because science says that's all the time you have.

SHOW: Narciso Rodriguez

CITY: New York 

THE LOOK: Clean and simple from head to fingertips—save for a strategic smudge of brown along the lower lashes.

INSPO: Every element of Rodriguez’s collection, from the asymmetrical lines on the designs to the neutral color palette, was echoed in the beauty look.

KEY PLAYERS: Makeup artist Dick Page, Hairstylist Anthony Turner, Manicurist Deborah Lippmann

BEAUTY MVPs: Shiseido Shimmering Cream Color in Leather and Smoothing Eye Pencil in Black, Bumble & bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil and Spray de Mode, Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish in Terra Nova

TOP TIPS: It takes some work to look this undone. To approximate dashes of color à la illustrator Antonio Viramontes, Page added a “broken smudge” of brown beneath the eye, a trace of black just along the lash line, and a sooty little streak just under the tear duct.

WORDS FROM THE WISE: What’s the opposite of strobing? (Uh...shadowing?) Page highlighted in “a different way,” crafting a “trompe l’oleil” effect with brown shadow beneath the tear duct to make the eye appear deeper.

TREND TALLY: Like at Thom Browne and Rag & Bone, nails were color-matched to the clothing. Lippmann custom-blended a polish to correspond to a “dirty mustard” shade in the collection. Black liner is also a big trend for Spring 2017, making appearances at shows like Prabal Gurung, Rag & Bone, Baja East, Altuzarra, and 3.1 Phillip Lim
