Go Behind The Scenes
Exclusive tips and tricks from beauty guru Joey Maalouf and hair expert Byron.
For the makeup look, beauty guru Joey Maalouf gave models an ice grey smoky eye with thick, full lashes, which was complemented with neutral lips and rosy cheeks.
Get The Look: Glowing Skin
Joey prepped the skin with Charlotte Tilbury's Wonder Glow and then with a beauty blender applied YSL's Touche Eclat Foundation. For a tangy rosy-red flush, he applied Chanel's Le Blush Creme in Chamade on the apples of the cheek. Lips were painted with Tom Ford lip color in Blush Nude and given a subtle glow via Tom Ford Lacquer Vinyl.

Get The Look: Iced Eyes
For the eyes, Joey used a Tom Ford eyeshadow palette in Ice Queen, blending both smoke and silvery hues for a dramatic effect. He topped off the look with false lashes and added warmth with Dolce & Gabbana's Animalier Bronzer. Apply the bronzer with a fluff eyeshadow brush to deepen the crease.

Rachel asked hair expert Byron for a fuzzy, slept-in fishtail braid for a tough, bohemian look. Inspired by Cara Delevingne's edgy 'do at the 2013 Met Gala, Rachel wanted two Cara-inspired corn row braids in the front to lead to a messy faux-fishtail braid in the back.

Get The Look: Boho Braids
First, Byron parted hair down the middle and french braided each side all the way down. For the back, Byron faked a fishtail braid by criss-crossing and overlapping two sections of the hair, one from each side of the middle part, instead of the usual three. Create a texturized, slept-in look by using your hands to mess it up a bit and finish off with Oribe's Dry Texturizing Spray.
