Make up artist Pat McGrath showed us that a beautiful, classic look is always in style! She said she was influenced by the look of Italian country women, so it was all about simple but gorgeous makeup. The look was all about a bright and open lid with a beautiful soft contour. Perfect brows and a strong flushed cheek. Here are some backstage shots:

And right after declaring that all models should keep their eyebrows bleached Pat all of a sudden colored them back slightly for really a brow that is just perfect- not too thin or overly done.
Notice how she applies the blush, it's really strong on the apples and then blended upwards to get that really natural "flushed" look. Dab some flesh tone lipstick with your fingers over some lip balm and you are done!
Hairstylist Guido was influenced by the Italian "Madonna" but it truly reminds me of Indigenous Latinas who wear their hair in similar styles. Check out the finished look on Puerto Rican model Joan Smalls:
