Here's how to use silver liner and a touch of eye gloss to create an ethereal runway look.

Marchesa's spring 2017 collection was the stuff of princess dreams.

The always elegant label was especially ethereal this season, with a collection inspired by twilight, encompassing delicate metallic embroideries, iridescent lamé fabrics and romantic chiffon ruffles that cascaded in ombre pastels.

The finishing touch was a barely there, fairy-esque beauty look created by "no-makeup makeup" queen Bobbi Brown. "[It's] a very ethereal, almost Princess Bride look," said Brown backstage before the show. "So it’s very soft, very modern, but adds some dimension to the face."

To give models that gleam in their eyes, the makeup guru used Beach Babe Eye Gloss across the lids (yep, greasy eyelids are in) and a silver eyeliner pencil. A sweep of matching Mica Sparkle silver shadow below the eyes and the blackest black mascara completed the look.

For the rest of the face, Brown kept it simple, adding just a touch of rouge to the models' cheeks using her pink Retouching Powder, followed by a hint of color on their lips with her Naked Pink Liquid Art Stick. The result? Sheer magic.
