Sexy dishevelled hair, flushed cheeks, sweet lips -- sounds like perfect date-night beauty, doesn't it?

Windburned cheeks and windswept hair created a romantic winterscape beauty for the Eve Gravel Fall/Winter 2012 runway show at Montreal Fashion Week. (And if you've already watched this "Blush Basics" video, you know how to do a key part of this look.)

MFW chief hairstylist and Pantene Quebec consultant Denis Binet used mousse and gel from the Pantene Pro V Curly Hair series to prep the hair. He added waves with a curling iron, and worked in lots of texture with his hands and Pantene Satin Hold Hairspray.

Amelie Ducharme, chief makeup artist and Covergirl pro, called the makeup "soft and icy." She used Intense Shadowblast in #810 Forever Pink on lids, and several coats of LashPerfection 24hr Mascara in black on the top lashes only. With the white shade from a SmokyShadowBlast stick in Onyx Smoke, she highlighted cheekbones and down the centre of the nose.

To give the models that wintery flush, Ducharme blended colour into the hollow of the cheeks using Covergirl & Olay Simply Ageless Sculpting Blush in #230 Lush Berry. She prepped lips with a bit of concealer, Olay Regenerist Anti Aging Lip Concentrate balm, and the lighter side of a Covergirl Flipstick in #860 Intense.
