Tracy Reese's fall collection was largely inspired by artists, notably French artist Paul Gauguin and Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani. Therefore, her understated, glamorous pieces required a natural touch of beauty to accent and complete the look.

For makeup, Charlotte Willer for Maybelline New York, created a natural, fresh face with Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation, Define-a-Brow Eyebrow Pencil and Eye Studio Eyeshadow Quad in brown. Willer used both Colossal Volum' Express and Stiletto mascara to address volume and length for lashes, respectively. Lips received a dab of color from Maybelline's upcoming lipstick line, Color Sensational, in Bit of Berry.

Hair, by Erin Anderson for Tresemme, had a lot of manageable texture, with hair twisted into curls and then let down and finger brushed. Locks were then pulled loosely back at the nape of the neck with a thick barrette. Anderson used 24-Hour Body Finishing Spray to get a flexible hold.
