Zoe from Nail Rock customised these Narnia inspired nail wraps which came in 3 designs: roses, pastel knitted pattern and polka dots that "became" love hearts. They'll be available to buy in June.
The make up look was inspired by My Little Pony and Sophia's rainbow coloured collection. Each model had a different colour theme- pink, blue, red, green and were dusted with gold or silver all over the face. Lips were coloured using a MAC pigment and mixing medium for a matte finish.
Hannah Murray created this look using NARS products. Skin was given a base of Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturizer and Radiant Creamy Concealer, with a dab of Orgasm Multiple and Luxor Multiple on the cheeks. Eyes were swept with Namibia Single Eyeshadow, with Iceland Duo used along the socket and Carpates Eyeliner Stylo along the lash line. Brows were coloured in with Brow perfect or and Gel (both new for Fall)
Luke Hersheson created this side parted sleek do, channeling Wednesday Adams. Hair was ironed from the roots to the tip to create a sleek, glossed look.
The idea behind the nails was to make them look highlighted, 3D and reflective, so Katy Hughes used Butter London's polish in Pink Ribbon and Hen Party.
The look was all about enhancing the individual models beauty without too much makeup. A canvas was made with NARSskin Optimal Brightening Concentrate, NARSskin Luminous moisture cream, Sheer Glow foundation and their new Radiant Creamy Concealer. A little bit of Zen Blush was brushed on the cheeks followed by Copacabana Luminator. NARS Mesopotamia Eye Paint was swept across the eye and then around the cheek and lips were coated with Belle de Jour Velvet Matte Lip Pencil, Madere Pure Matte Lipstick and Peloponesse Pure matte Lipstick depending on the tone of their skin.
Guido Palau created the look using Babyliss hair tools and worked with the same idea of "individuality" as the makeup. Models were asked to wash their hair before call time and then hair was dried with Babyliss Pure Hairdryer using fingers, not a brush, to enhance their natural texture. Models with straight hair were given a bit of movement with Babyliss Hot Iron and curled slightly.
Gucci Westman created this look she described as "super polished, graphic 60s girl". Skin was prepped with Revlon's Nearly Naked Foundation and Powder which was mixed with Skin Lights to give a Luminous finish. Revlon Babystick was applied to the apples of models cheeks and their new duo white eyeliner (available in October) was place in the inner corner, hugging the lash line and along the wet line to open up the eyes.
Eyebrows were brushed upwards with hairspray to keep in place and lips were coated with a mix of Lustrous Colours in coral and red and finished with a dusting of Shine City all over (which was also used on the socket line of the eyes). Models were given a dab of gloss in the centre of their lips in lineup before the runway to pick up the light.
Jenny Longworth custom made the colour of the nails to match the colour of the models lips by painting 2 coats of Revlon Brilliant Strength in Red and 1 coat of Orange to knock out the blue tone. To make them look super glossy, a coat of Quick Dry was brushed on at the end.
The inspiration behind this look was grungey 90s. Skin was prepped and primed and then covered with MAC's mineralize moisture Foundation for a creamy textured, flat matte finish. Eyes were dusted with MAC Pro Eye Gloss in Black Sea before being rimmed with Feline Kohl Pencil and Plushlash Mascara in Plushblack. Lips popped with Pro-Longwear Lip Pencil in High Energy, then Filled in with Lip Pencil in Vino before being blotte with pigment in Basic Red. The final touch was a gap in the front teeth created with a theatre product called "tooth enamel".
Michelle Class created these custom made stiletto nails and painted a French manicure of Morgan Taylor nail Lacquer in Red and Little Black Dress, which was inspired by the makeup.
Hair was prepped with a spray of L'Oreal Paris Elnett Satin Heat spray before being dried with a hair dryer to create a dry texture before being tied into a knot, with the ends pulled through the hole. The whole 'do was then spray with Elnett Satin Hairspray in Diamond gold to create a shiny, wet look. The whole creation was inspired by the 90s, aiming for a textured, not too grungy look to play off the makeup.
The textured ponytail worn over the ears was created by Kenna for GHD, inspired by French girls of the 60s. Hair was prepped with GHD root lift and Straight and Tame and then blow dried using the GHD Air for a smooth glossy finish and then secured at the nape of the neck with a plain black hair elastic, with loose sections falling at the front.
Blue-eyed girls at Topshop Unique... Look out for the new Topshop eyeshadow duo called Solstice launching in March - they used the blue from it in a circular shape all round the eyes.
The hair was the kind of hair we all want - effortless and cool, and a little bit rock and roll. It was all about the Topshop Unique girl - slightly rebellious and unkempt but with a bit if a 70s reference too. To create it, hair was given a messy centre parting using the fingers. They used lots of L'Oreal Professionnel Pli and Full Volume Extra Mousse to give the hair a fluffy 70s texture. They 'closed in' the front of the hair to create a frame around the face and used a Mason & Pearson brush to give it a bit of height. Then they spritzed the hair with L'Oreal Professionnel Fresh Dust to give the hair a cloud-like frizziness.
Nails at Topshop Unique were painted a bright blood-red using Topshop Nail Polish in Lacquered.
The hair at Mary Katrantzou was very graphic and architectural - mid-height ponies teamed with short sharp fringes. The models' natural hair was slicked back into a pony, using loads of Wella Professionals Stay Styled Hairspray to create a gelled look. Wefts of extensions were then glued onto the models' natural hair and cut into a short rounded fringe. Wella System Professionals Hydrate Finish Spray was spritzed onto the ponies at the end to give them a more organic texture, contrasting with the sleek sharp front.
Val Garland did the make-up for the Mary Katrantzou show and told us it was all about ghostliness - inspired by eerie landscapes and environments. She used MAC Mineralize Moisture Foundation to create flawless glowy, ghostly skin. A new MAC Pro Eyegloss in Mother of Pearl (launching some time in Autumn) was used all over the eyelid and up to the eyebrows.
Then she highlighted the models' cheekbones and just under their eyes, and created a natural pale pink lip by adding just the right amount of concealer to them. The nails were MAC Discotheque - a shimmery silver - thinned down and mixed with clear polish to create just a subtle silver glint to catch the light.
Vivienne Westwood Red Label
Backstage at this show was manic! Val Garland created this cartoon like makeup using MAC products. She started by painting on a pale canvas and then drawing outlining the facial feature with a mix of black inks/gels/pencils from MAC. Every girl has their own signature look with dark skinned girls having a natural base with white outlining and light skin girls using a pale base and black outlining which we're all described by Val as "a little bit wild, a little bit mad". The main idea was to draw on the face like you would draw on a piece of paper, with a use of primary colours to differentiate the girls.
Vivienne Westwood Red Label
This was the final look!

Using water based acrylic nail varnish from Nail Rock, models talons were air brushed in different shades from the Playful collection up to half way on the nail.
Maybelline New York Rocket Mascara is the hero product of the show - make-up artist Sharon Dowsett is applying 4 or 5 coats of it, and then adding Maybelline New York Illegal Length mascara on the ends of the lashes. Skin has a 'sweaty' sheen to it and the girls wore nose rings for that gangster edge...
Hair is a messy, half-pulled-out pony that's loaded with product. They're using about a whole can of Toni & Guy Volume Plumping Mousse on each girl!
Val Garland created this Hitchcock inspired look using a flick of L'Oreal Paris black eyeliner and layers of Lash Architect mascara. Brows were groomed and filled in, but not too much, while skin wash given a creamy base with L'Oreal Paris BB and CC cream (depending on skin tone), with a touch of flesh toned blush and then brightened with lashings of L'Oreal Paris Lumi-Magique. Lips were coated in L'Oreal Paris Color Riche lipsticks in shades of 501 and 235 for a touch of beige mixed with pink.
Malcolm Edwards created this half Hitchcock half nasty fierce inspired look by prepping hair with L'Oreal Paris Proffessionnel Tecni-Art volume lift and then dried and flat ironed it before running Tecni Art crystal gloss through the hair. The hair was then sectioned in 2 and half tied at the crown of the head and then the second half tied together with the top half before twisting and pinning into place. Finally, hair was sprayed with Tecni-Art Fix Design to hold in place.
Moschino Cheap & Chic
Nails continued the girly punk theme of the show, with hot pink on the index finger and thumb, and glossy black on the rest of the nails. Nail queen Marian Newman used MAC Nail Polish in Girl About Town and Nocturnal.

The make-up had bold punk accents of black - either a heavy black almond-shaped eye (using MAC Graphblack pencil and Fluidline in Blacktrack) or a black lacquered lip. Both the eye and lip were layered with clear gloss to give the black a PVC look.
Hair guru Sam McKnight created a faux fringed chignon for a young vibe, that he described as "an easy fresh look that would take a girl 2 minutes to do". Hair was sprayed with salt spray before being blow dried to keep the hold of the hair dry and then was twisted up and over the head to create a side-swept fringe at the front before being pinned into place.
The inspiration for make up was based on the deconstructed hair - so all products chosen were finger-friendly (no need for brushes). Skin was kept matte using Stila's beauty balm while eyes were brightened with Stila's new Pure Metal Foil Finish cream shadow in black gold which was applied using a primer bonder to create the effect of liquid metal. A splash of gold amber (gold leaf) was applied to the inner corner of the eye to create a punky, cool yet feminine look.
Sam Bryant created this zombie-like makeup using a blend of different products on the eyes and making the skin pale and luminescent. Bryant explained her vision to the makeup artists by telling them- "I want it to feel like this makeup is coming out of them".
John Rocha wanted the nails to look a bit bruised, so Nails were given two coats of Essie's Lady Like nail varnish to give them a nude, fleshy colour.
Hair was teased at the roots to create volume and then tied with elastic grips for a more dishevelled look. Extensions were sprayed with Bumble and Bumble hairspray before being added into the hair for extra texture.
Inspired by 90's Claudia Schiffer type girl. Hair was created using a hair donut and heaps of hairspray to wrap the hair around and up like a cone/beehive created with a GHD. Makeup was all about a strong brow using Stila Stale Day waterproof brow pencil. Nails were painted in all sorts of colours from Essie, and were kept long a rounded 90s style.
Moschino Cheap & Chic
'Punk couture' was the inspiration at Moschino Cheap & Chic. The hair had a youthful rock 'n' roll vibe, messily tied with an elastic band at the nape of the neck as if the girls had done it themselves.

Terry Barber, MAC's Director of Artidtry created this look and said he was going for a Gothic eye with a beetle look using colours Maiden and Seafoam with white on the waterline to play off the black. Lips are kept simple with a bit of concealer and lip balm. Terry described the look as "bad ass but gorgeous" - we agree!
Jean Pierre Braganza
Four nails were painted with Essie Go Overboard which was inspired by the colours used in the collection. Everyone's ring fingers were painted with Essie Blanc and then a geometric print was added using Essie Licorice. This print was echoed in the collection.
Jean Pierre Braganza
Inspired by Japanese Buddhist monks and origami (following on with the story from SS13), hair had a clean centre part with the detail created at back. The hair was sprayed with Label M hairspray before tonging to fuse it all together - it was sprayed, tonged, sprayed again, tonged again and finished with a spray of Label M Shine Spray for a glossed look.
The make up was being done by Bourjois, who swept eyes with white shadow before applying a thick black eyeliner.
White Bourjoia nail polish was applied thinly on the nail - looks like transparent is the new opaque when it comes to nails this Autumn/Winter!
The make up look was inspired by the street spirit and attitude of 1970s Zephyr skateboarder boys. Everything was very relaxed except for the lip to give it an elegant spin.
Dry shampoo was sprayed through the hair for subtle volume and hair was twisted with fingers instead of using tongs to create tousled waves. The final touch was finger brushing it out.
