House of Holland A/W 11:
“Henry’s inspiration was tweed and grannies, so we decided to keep the makeup more modern, with a luminous, polished mannequin-like skin and a sensual strong cherry red lip” – Lucia Pica. For this look I note the Cremeblend Blush in Ladyblush, as it is beautiful and works perfectly with the Pearl Cream Colourbase that was blended over the eyes. The lips, Cherry Lip Pencil and Ruby Woo lipstick.
Holly Fulton A/W 11:
“It’s inspired by a movie still of a sexy lesbian vampire – A strong beautiful man” – Andrew Gallimore. Lips were striking using Runway Red lipstick and eyes were colourful using Seaside Cream Colour Base to give the eyelids a 3D shine. Moleskin eye shadow is brushed in the socket and around the last line for overall effect. MAC Pro Lash Mascara coated the lashes.
Louise Grey A/W 11:
“It’s inspired by Yayio Kusama, a Japanese artist who only works in polka dots, plus Louise’s collection, which is extremely colourful this season ... Initially it’s a beautiful skin but then I wanted to inject colour onto the face in an untraditional manner” – James O’Riley. Eyes were fairly simple for this make-up look of perfection - a Mid Tone Sepia Cream Colour Base is used over the lids, delicately blended past the crease. Zoomblack Zoomlash mascara coats eye lashes while Lip Conditioner alone is used for the lips. The face is brought to life by colour using MAC Pro Chromography Pencils in Primary Yellow, Basic Red, Pure White, Landscape Green, Genuine Orange and Marine Ultra in uniform sized dots as if they had fallen onto the face. Some dots become clustered to maximise the effect.
Erdem A/W 11:
“The wide of an artist who has just left her husband. She’s dark and mysterious with an ethereal glow. Sexily dishevelled.” – Andrew Gallimore. Erdem had the finest smoky eyes of the week. Using a mix of Waveline and Blacktrack Fluidline it was applied to the lash line it was blended in with a brush just past the crease of the eye. The same mix was used to create a sharp line with a clear edge below the eye. Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipstick was used to finish the look.
