MAKEUP: Ayami Nishimura for MAC

SNAPSHOT: Mad circus

THE SCOOP: Milliner Nasir Mazhar is a rising young star who has already been commissioned to design headpieces for Madonna and Lady Gaga. This season, he continued his OTT aesthetic of making unusual headgear with furry animal hats - some with sprouting rainbow bunches - and leather creations, shown with latex garments and completely wild makeup. We're talking body paint, glitter and anime eyes, inspired by the everyday wear and laid back attitudes of Rude Boys and Girls.

GET THE LOOK - MAKEUP: Girls were split into two categories for the makeup, animal-inspired for those who wore the furry headpieces, and glamour girls. To create the glamour girl sex appeal, it was all about the eyes. Nishimura used Blacktrack to create a winged eye. Then she added tons of glitter on top. To get the eye really popping and make a dramatic statement, go for falsies: Nishimura used a 7 Lash on the girls, the new Opi Lash mascara, and then painted black onto eyebrows. To get the red glossy pout, she applied Hang-up Cream Sheen followed by clear gloss. For the amazing blue and purple animal print body paint on the animal-inspired girls, Nishimura used MAC Pro Chromacakes.
