When you have the powerhouse duo of hairstylist Kevin Ryan and makeup artist James Kaliardos for M.A.C, you go backstage to get the details. Such was the case at Nicole Miller's Fall 2010 show. "We're doing a very beautiful face today," James told me. "I just haven't done makeup like that for so long!" Get all the details after the jump.

"I just wanted the girls to be very beautiful and made up too, it’s like giving them a face to wear," James said. "It's the kind of makeup that looks good on everyone." He began with Face and Body Foundation and concealer wherever needed. He pressed charcoal shadow into the lashlines, then coated top lashes wtih Studio Fix Lash Maxara in Black Fix. Lips were stained with Lipstick in Plum Dandy, which James applied with a brush. At the end of the day, it's important to remember one thing -- "Grey is the new black."

Hairstylist Kevin Ryan was inspired by a model who came in for the casting, creating "a cool girl with a bit of a wave." He used the Rsession Tools Nalu Waver to "get a natural wave in the hair," and then roughed up the texture with Bumble and bumble Volumizing Tonic and Bumble and bumble Surf Spray. "I don't want it too perfect," Kevin told me. "The salt spray beats it up and doesn't make it look crazy." He finished by finger-raking and roughing it up right before the models went out on the runway.
