LONDON — The beauty look at Julien Macdonald was dead specific. “We were feeling a soundtrack of Marilyn Manson and an early Nineties woman epitomized by Stella Tennant — as shot by David Simms for ID Magazine,” said makeup artist Val Garland. In other words, it was all about grunge deluxe created using L'Oréal BB and CC creams for a flawless finish to the skin with contour and highlighting, but no blush.
For the eyes, “We used a waxy crayon in a really intense grey — up close to the lash line — and blended it to the brows which we brushed up for a boyish feel,” Garland said. Lips remained natural with just the hint of a stain.
Martin Cullen's hair had a dirty texture, “like when you've been on a night out, got home at 6 a.m. and your hair's stuck down with sweat,” he laughed. He created the look using L'Oréal's Matt & Messy Salt Spray and Architectural Shine Wax to separate it at the front.
Nail artist Lisa Smith used L'Oréal’s Diamond Lurex for a “nonchalant look that was not too dark and edgy.”
