"Eniko Mihalik is rarely without nail polish, which, for a model, is unusual. While most girls strip everything away on their off days—makeup, hairspray, and, yes, lacquer—Eniko plans trips to Saks to add another Tom Ford eye shadow palette to her collection, and paints her nails. Miss Mihalik loves a beauty product.
It came as no surprise, then, that she had something to show me during a recent visit. “They’re from Sally Hansen,” she said, holding ten perfectly manicured fingers up to her face. “Salon Effects. It’s these strips, and they come in all different colors and patterns…” Her nails are sheathed in gold glitter—“Glitz Blitz”. I scratched my original plan for her makeup and reached for NARS’ Paramaribo shadow, a twisted, lime-tinged bronze/brass duo, smudging brown, not black, pencil liner from Clinique (Quickliner for Eyes Intense) into the lashline for subtle dimension. I used my current favorite blush, Tom Pecheux’s recently reformulated Lauder dandy in Rebel Rose, high on her cheekbones, and—for lips—layered Bobbi Brown’s new Desert Plum and Party Alice straight from the tube."
