Flashback Friday is a feature on Beauty Counter in which we pore over the pages of our favorite glossies from decades past in search of a little modern-day makeup and hair inspiration.
The Model: Gisele Bündchen
The Moment: A Youthful Glow
The Motivation: I’ve been poring over Rizzoli’s latest tome, Chloé Attitudes, for weeks, not only admiring the stunning imagery that chronicles the label’s history, but also the makeup looks that have graced the runways. The house has been a huge fan of some of fashion’s biggest faces, like Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and Linda Evangelista—all of whom appeared in ads at one point or another. So when I stumbled across the above shot of a very young Gisele (before she earned her Victoria’s Secret Angel wings and was credited with bringing sexy back to modeling), I couldn’t help but feel there was a cosmic connection in place. Not to mention her luminous, freckled skin, berry-stained lips, and palm-frond green liner that had me at hello.

The Model: Arizona Muse
The Moment: Tropical Punch
The Motivation: When I came across this photo of Arizona Muse by Patrick Demarchelier for British Vogue‘s February 2012 issue, I immediately longed for summer, or at the very least, a vacation in a warm, palm tree-laden destination. But aside from daydreams about jet-setting to an island that’s far sunnier than Manhattan at the present time, I noticed that Muse sported multiple Spring 2014 trends: pastel-blue shadow (seen at Miu Miu), along with bold lips (on display for the first time at Rag & Bone). And instead of being swirled on her apples, the blush was dusted low on her cheeks (a technique face painter Tom Pecheux employed at Marni). While I’m not one to wear color in more than one place, Muse certainly makes a case for breaking the makeup rules.
