MAKEUP: Val Garland for MAC

SNAPSHOT: Dangerous Liaisons

THE SCOOP: Print and textile expert Mary Katrantzou has replicated statement jewellery and perfume bottles on to previous designs, but for a/w 2010, her spectacular multi-coloured prints looked towards another era all together. The decorative patterns displayed rich artwork from the 18th century, the period which inspired make-up artist Val Garland to create an aristocratic Dangerous Liaisons look. Garland said it was all about the "18th century woman" and the "baroque red mouth, but instead of being a full on powdered face, we've modernised the look by making the skin fresh and supple."

GET THE LOOK - MAKEUP: Garland emphasised statement red lips by creating a two-tone effect, with "a dewy shade of red on the upper lip, and a darker velvety red on the bottom lip". For the eyes, Garland used a soft pink shade on the eye and a white pencil inside the lid. She lightly powedered the face to keep the look fresh.

GET THE LOOK - HAIR: The hair was kept fairly casual, with messy up-dos that were created using, what the lead stylist described as, the "hair's own potential rather than styling products for movement and lift." The hair was blow dried before being scrunched back and spritzed with a touch of spray to add gloss and shine.
