Michelle Coursey’s Nylon Girl
Michelle Coursey provided the makeup for Nylon’s November-issue “Pony Party!” She remarked: “Wearing a ponytail means the face is more exposed, so it’s the right time to play up a feature, be it the eyes or the lips.”
Coursey picked the former, using NARS’s eye paint in Snake Eyes. “I decided to do floating liner (the line across the lid) – it’s a big trend for fall,” she explained. “I was excited to do something graphic, but to balance it out, I kept the rest of the look clean … which is more ‘the Nylon girl,’ who is super, super natural,” knowledge gained after several shoots for the magazine. With her fingers, Coursey pressed on M.A.C. lipstick in Fanfare.
