Backstage Beauty: Burberry Prorsum

While many labels have shifted to favor the avant-garde face, Burberry Prorsum is generally a show at which beauty is held in high priority. The Burberry girl is, after all, inherently pretty in the most natural way. Think spokesmodel for the Body fragrance, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, a woman on whom clothes seem superfluous — just a trenchcoat will do. Casual hair, a natural lip, and expertly blended neutral smokes all but comprise the Burberry muse.

1. Radiant, flawless skin is best created without a heavy formula: a fairly pigmented tinted moisturizer atop a primer makes the perfect canvas, with the high points of the face (center of the forehead, bridge and tip of the nose, center of the chin, and cheekbones) highlighted.

2. A neutral ashy brown shadow is blended into the outer corners of the eye, the lower lash line, and into the crease for definition.

3. A dark brown or black liner, depending on your skin tone, should be smudged into both upper and lower lash lines.

4. Brows should be groomed and sparse areas filled in with powder, lips bare save just a slick of an emollient lip balm like Rosebud Salve.
