Matthew Williamson took to a more polished, put-together woman for inspiration for his fall 2009 collection.
Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury for MAC said Williamson aimed for a more groomed girl than in the past, so she focused on a strong lip and eye. Lips used both lipstick (Half & Half) and liner (Spiced Up) in brick red shades. Eyes were painted with a blend of brown and gray shades using lots of different MAC powders with large, round brushes. Mascara coated just the top lashes and eyebrows were simply gelled upward. Skin was perfected with a light foundation and contoured with a touch of blush.
Hairstylist Paul Hanlon for GHD agreed that Williamson is straying from his typical soft-gypsy woman for a woman with a more finished, strong look. To achieve this, Hanlon went for stick-straight hair with a blunt edge, deep side parts and slickly sprayed roots that lead into softer locks.
