This season version of no-makeup makeup is what we're calling “I half-heartedly took off my makeup before bed.” For the ultra romantic look – which Lead Makeup Artist for Maybelline New York Canada Grace Lee wanted to look as if the face had just been barely cleaned with a  wipe – skin was prepped with a bit of foundation and Maybelline Baby Lights.

Backstage at Toronto Fashion Week: Sid Neigum

The makeup look at Sid was decided just hours before the show. Lee kept skin semi-matte and lips nude to put the focus on the eyes. She used Maybelline Master Precise Ink Pen Eyeliner along the upper lashline, tracing overtop with white liner. The same two colours (in rerves) were traced along the bottom lashes. “It’s really creating sharp, clean lines,” said Lee. READ MORE: 8 beauty trends we loved at Milan Fashion Week
