Backstage at the Narciso Rodriguez Spring 2011 fashion show at New York Fashion Week, eyes took centre stage in a soft coral hue, while hair was sleek and simple in this season's must-have deep side part.

SNAPSHOT: Pretty and polished with a pop of hot coral color
THE SCOOP: The Narciso Rodriguez spring 2011 collection is graceful and chic, with simple and soft lines and pops of vibrant colour. The collection offers a diverse array of trousers, evening gowns and mini dresses in muted greens, light pinks and corals with accent shades of charcoal, black and white, so the beauty teams chose a low maintenance and natural look to reflect the feminine and refined vibe of the collection.
Hair followed suit with smooth, glossy locks combed into a deep, curving side part. "Narciso referenced himself in a lot of different segments within the collection with a mix of styles, colours and textures. There is a lot going on so I chose a simple hairstyle that would unify all the girls so they all looked exactly the same," said hairstylist Eugene Souleiman.
Nails were also soft and simple with a beige, finished-looking nail. "The trend I'm starting to see is nails coordinating with eyes as opposed to eyes matching lips," said Lippmann.
GET THE LOOK - MAKEUP: All products by Shiseido. For the face, apply a light, sheer layer of foundation. Next, apply blush on cheekbones. For eyes, start by applying a light layer of concealer over any dark circles.
Brighten the eyelid with a shadow in a shade that's just a tad lighter then your natural skin tone. Then, with a fluffier brush, apply a coral brown cream into the crease as well as the outside corners in order to give the eye shape. Continue with a little coral on the lower lash line. Smooth a dry brush over the cream to blend in the colour. Finish by dusting a little translucent powder on top to hold the colour in place. On the pout, use a sheer lipstick in a delicate rosy colour.
GET THE LOOK - HAIR: All products by Wella. Apply a primer and brush through the hair. Blow-dry the hair completely straight so it looks healthy. Then create a clean, low side part that curves around the side.
