    How to Create Straight Nail Art Lines

    At Oscar de la Renta, makeup artist Gucci Westman prepped models' lips with Hourglass No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil ($42, barneys.com). Next, she applied lipstick and finished with a dab of the lip oil for a subtle sheen. The result: soft, hydrated, kissable lips

    How to Wake Up With Beach Waves

  • each one with a hairspray (like Wella Stay Essential Finishing Spray $15, ulta.com), he let the hair set and, afterward, unbraided it for a beachy texture.

    How to Blend Nail Polish Colors
    Also at Rebecca Minkoff, Essie's Michelle Saunders created a "watercolor" nail. Before the colors dried, she applied topcoat over the entire nail, then blended the colors toward the tip of the nail. Base coat, she says, is not necessary when creating nail art that consists of several layers of polish because it will make the polish too thick and hard to work with.

  • How to Get Dewy—Not Sweaty—Skin
    Backstage at Marc by Marc Jacobs, the Marc Jacobs Beauty team used lip products to create a dewy look on the skin. To avoid a sweaty-looking finish, use lip balm, not gloss. The waxy finish reflects light and gives skin an opalescent finish. Rub it onto your cheekbones, eyelids, and wherever else you want a slight sheen.

    Garren, hair genius and cofounder of R+Co, created the style at Anna Sui. "I wanted to give the look of people from the '60s and '70s who just shampooed their hair and let it go," he says. To re-create it, apply R+Co Chiffon Styling Mousse ($27, randco.com) to damp hair and use your hands rather than a brush (yes, lifting hair with the hands creates piecey volume) while blow-drying until hair is 80 percent dry. Let the air do the rest, and finish with hairspray.

  • How to Do Ombré Nails
    At Creatures of the Wind, Katie Jane Hughes, global color ambassador for Butter London, said the key to perfect ombré nails is, "Finger painting—literally! Apply polish with your finger to create a gradient effect, blend shades, and put glitter polish exactly where you want it."

  • How to Get Bigger, Brighter Lips
    Burberry makeup artistic consultant Wendy Rowe applied foundation over models' mouths as a base before layering multiple coats of red to make the color appear brighter. By erasing the natural hues and lip lines, Rowe was able to create fuller-looking pouts. Products she used include Burberry Fresh Glow Foundation ($48, us.burberry.com) and Lip Cover in Ruby No.18 ($33, us.burberry.com).

  • How to Get Your Makeup to Glide On
    Backstage at Dolce & Gabbana, models' skin was prepped with a luxe 10-minute facial treatment using Dolce & Gabbana's new Aurealux Mask ($169 for six, saks.com).

  • How to Get Glowy Skin All Over
    Want all the glowy effects of a spray tan without doing any of the work? At Emilio Pucci, St. Tropez global tanning and skin finishing ambassador Nichola Joss (yes, that's her real title!) mixed temporary body bronzer with moisturizer to create a subtle, just-for-tonight glow. She used St. Tropez One Night Only Instant Glow Body Lotion ($18, sephora.com) and St. Tropez Tan Optimizer Body Moisturizer ($15, drugstore.com).
