“The inspiration is old Herb Ritts pictures,” said hairstylist James Brown of the look he concocted for the Julien Macdonald show. “It’s kind of athletic. It’s as if the girl has gone for a workout and tied her hair up, then when she takes it out it just falls naturally.”
Using products from his eponymous line, Brown blowdried hair before tying it into a bun. After a time, the bun was unraveled. To give a lived-in feeling, Brown applied High Gloss Serum Spray around the hairline and sections at the front were backcombed in order to keep them back from the face. He finished the look with Hairspray.
Charlotte Tilbury, who was working with MyFace Cosmetics, also took an athletic bent with makeup. “It’s all about being sporty,” she said. “It’s quite Eighties because of the thick healthy eyebrows.”
Tilbury created strong brows using eyebrow pencils. She created a warm complexion using MyFace foundation in Medium and Rouge/Blusher in Sultan of Swing on cheeks. Shimmer on eyelids and cheeks came courtesy of Blingtones in Diamonds and Pearls, while lips were coated with a slick of Vaseline.
