LONDON — “The collection is more grown up and polished and more ladylike this year,” makeup artist Mathias Van Hooff said of the Mulberry collection.
To wit: He used L’Oréal’s True Match, a slightly heavier foundation than in previous seasons, alongside concealer and powder from the same line. It was all about a Seventies eye and he started with Infallible liner in Chocolate Addiction — taking it right to the edge for an elongated effect — and going over the top with Colour Riche eyeshadow in the Marron Glace palatte and filling in the brows in the same shade – rendering them “more defined but not super sharp.”
He used a soupçon of blush in Nude Brown and a new lip stain with a gloss finish, Glam Shine Stain Splash in Princess — mixing a little moisturizer and applying just before the girls went on the runway.
Hairstylist Sam McKnight kept hair super simple, as it was worn tucked inside the collar of each dress. “That’s what people do in the winter and (designer) Emma (Hill) wanted to make a feature of it,” he said.
To achieve a good texture, McKnight used Sebastian mousse and texturizer on the ends from Japanese brand Supremo’s Magic Move.
