SCOOP: A circus with a nod to mod was the theme for Anna Sui's s/s 2010 collection. The designer proved she can tame the fashion beast, deftly pairing lots of loud gestures - 60s-inspired floral prints, plaid vests, star patterned ties - and actually making them work. This fracas of feminine layering called for hair and makeup to be simple, yet statement-worthy. "We wanted the hair to be very 60s," said Garren, "A modern take on the old Mademoiselle cover girls - blunt but polished." The makeup was simple: "It's all about rosy blush, very young and fresh and bright," said McGrath.

McGrath brightened eyes with yellow gold Cover Girl Eye Enhancers Eye Shadow in Samba, and used lots of Cover Girl Lash Blast Mascara on top and bottom lashes to pop the eyes. Cover Girl Simple Ageless Blush in Shade 200 gave cheeks a peachy pink flush, and lips were painted pale pink for a retro flare.

GET THE LOOK - HAIR: Garren did different styles on each mode depending on their hair cut and texture. But for all he blew out the hair with extra volume and then smoothed on a shine serum to leave strands silky and polished.
