How to get a gorgeous runway look at home

After chatting with Spanish designer Custo Dalmau of Custo Barcelona at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, we spoke with makeup artist Gato Zamora backstage.

 "The makeup look at Custo Barcelona is inspired by a free-spirited Indian nomad," said Zamora, a Maybelline New York Makeup Artist. "It's a little untidy and a little bit wild, but entirely natural and beautiful." Zamora shared some fabulous backstage beauty tips with me, and I can't wait to share them with you!

Here's how to get the look...

  1. Apply a light foundation for a no-makeup look. 
  2. Highlight the face using an illuminating concealer. Apply a dot on the forehead, the center of the cheeks, under your eyes and onto the cheekbones and blend. 
  3. With fingertips, blend the Dream Bouncy Blush on the models' cheeks. Gato used the Rose Petal color. 
  4. Apply a bold eyeliner and smudge it with your fingers for a dramatic eye. 
  5. Add two coats of mascara onto the top and bottom lashes. 
  6. Finish the look with a light coat of a soft pink lipstick to complete the natural look.
