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.
