Backstage at the Michael Kors Spring 2011 fashion show at New York Fashion Week, the look was slightly tousled and just back from the beach.

MAKEUP: Dick Page for Shiseido

HAIR: Orlando Pita

THE SCOOP: Pita described Kors' collection as urban beachwear, and created a hairstyle to complement that laid back vibe. He literally split the back of the hair into two sections and double-knotted them like a shoelace. There was lots of texture, too.

"You know Michael's boys and girls, " Page said when describing the makeup. "They're healthy looking, with a bit of sun and wind on their cheeks, like they've just come from an active, beach holiday." Flushed cheeks were the focus with some brown accents around the eyes.

GET THE LOOK-MAKEUP: All makeup by Shiseido. Page used Luminizing Satin Face Color in Orchid, Tea Rose, Petal and Carnation across the bridge of the nose and cheekbones to punch up the "healthy" look. He rimmed the eyes with a bit of Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio in Strata. The lips were bare except for a tiny dab of concealer to take the colour down a notch.

GET THE LOOK-HAIR: Pita spritzed the hair with lots of Bumble and bumble Surf Spray to add waves and texture. Then he left a chunky section of hair loose in the front and double-knotted the back of the hair, to give an effortless look to it.
