At the Narciso Rodriguez show Tuesday evening, the models looked positively handsome, to borrow a phrase from the Fifties.

Hairstylist Eugene Souleiman, working with Wella Professional, set out to create what he called a "handsome pretty" look. He began by running an ample amount of conditioner through the front of the hair, and then racking back the hair with a wide-tooth comb. The back was left long. For the face, makeup artist Dick Page for Shiseido opted for a "next-day makeup" aesthetic complete with a deconstructed eye that's "a bit rough around the edges."

Page kept eyelids bare, but lined the eyes with Smoothing Eyeliner Pencil in Black mixed with a touch of Aquaphor for a little bit of slip "to keep it moving." He applied black Perfect Mascara to the top and bottom lashes, and dabbed lip balm on the lips. The face was finished with light foundation and on the cheeks Accentuating Color Stick in Bronze Flush, beige-bronze cream blush, for contour.
