Rachel Zoe’s Spring 2013 beauty look borrowed from rock and roll inspirations yet again. The hair: one part Brigitte Bardot, another part Marianne Faithfull. Cool-girl muse Kate Moss was a reference point for the effortless-looking makeup, while a trio of polishes was blended to create a sherbet hue on nails. See our interviews with Rachel’s backstage beauty team in today’s Beauty Beat.
Pair a sultry-toned peach hue that dominated looks of the late 1970s with a modern smoky eye, and you've got Chloe's universally flattering (and sexy) runway look. "It's the makeup of French actresses — Dominique Sanda, Carole Bouquet — very expensive and ultra-luxe," said lead makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury.

Like tans, natural brows, and blowouts, freckles are one of those things that beauty insiders seem to vacillate about with rapid speed. Some of the same companies who make products that fade freckles have also come out with and discontinued freckle pencils (Lancome, Chanel). Luckily for those of us who are fans of ephiledes (that's science for freckles), Charlotte Tilbury's brought them back at Matthew Williamson. "We're painting on a few little freckles across the nose and on the tops of the cheeks where the sun would naturally bring them out with a lip pencil called Hodgepodge by MAC," said Tilbury. "It's a fresh young look that's a bit naughty." So naughty, in fact, that she revealed how she painted them on Kate Moss on a few occasions. One caveat: "For real life, use waterproof pencil!"
