L.A.M.B.'s fall/winter presentation featured edgy, retro beauty inspired by the Thirties and silent film actress Clara Bow.
"It's a doll-like, pale face," said Charlotte Tilbury, the lead makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics. "She's very smoldering and slightly feline."
Tilbury created exaggerated, blue-black smoky eyes, lined and smudged on the top and bottom. She then applied layers of mascara and coated finished lids with Mac Eye Gloss for a high shine effect.
"We want her to look like she's been up all night," said Tilbury. "She's a little wild, a little naughty."
Lips were a stark contrast to the eyes, as they featured a velvety, matte texture in a dark raspberry shade.
"These are boudoir lips for someone young and sexy," said Tilbury. "We've gone a little outside the lines."
Hair, styled by Danilo for Moroccanoil, interpreted a classic, doll-like look, blended with Gwen Stefani-inspired edginess.
"There's a little bit of aggression," said Danilo. Each model rocked center parts, thick curled-under bangs and sea of wavy, deconstructed curls. "We used a half-inch curler, then brushed it out," said Danilo. "It's not so fixed or in place."
About the girl behind the hair?
"Shes gorgeous and sweet," said Danilo. "But she's a little naughty."
Nails were first trimmed short and rounded, then painted a deep, dark ruby by CND.
"Nails complete the story," said CND nail artist Roxanne Valinoti. "It's classic Gwen style ‹ edgy, chic, interesting."
Tips were coated with a high-shine top coat for texture and finishing contrast.
"It's a modern interpretation on the classic red nail," said Valinoti.

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.
