“It’s glam rock meets Greta Garbo,” said MAC Cosmetics’ Terry Barber backstage at the Vivienne Westwood Red Label show. Eyes and lips, which were set against a pale matt complexion, were the look’s strongest features. Barber prepared the skin with MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation and dusted with Set Powder in Invisible. He used a MAC Paint Pot in Artifact on eyelids and underneath peepers before shading sockets with Shadowy Lady. Top and bottom lashes were coated with Zoom Lash mascara. Before models hit the runaway, lids were layered with Clear Lipglass to create a vinyl finish. Some lips, meanwhile, were coated with MAC Lipstick in Sin to create a blood-red mouth.
“It’s a real mishmash,” said hairstylist Malcolm Edwards, who was styling hair backstage with L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.art, noting iconic Sixties brand Biba was an inspiration. Coifs were tailored to suit each model, with some sporting natural looks and others voluminous crimped frizzy styles. Edwards used Tecni.art Pli when creating the looks.
