SNAPSHOT: On the hunt

THE SCOOP: Lynn's a/w 2010 collection was entitled La Chasse, and the designer drew on the idea of the hunt to explore the dynamic between nature and humanity. For Barber, the makeup inspiration was about a very pure look. "For me, it's about makeup imitating skincare – we wanted a cream skin and highlights to shape the face. Also, we used the same makeup treatments on boys and girls. Gender blending is the new gender bending," he told us.

The hair look was also pure and simple. "We wanted very strong and sleek hair that was off the face, which moved when models made their way down the catwalk," Mascolo-Tarbuck said backstage.

GET THE LOOK – MAKEUP: Barber used Studio Sculpt foundation all over because "it looks like buffed skin and really picks up light. It feels elastic." He also used Cream Colour Bases in Luna and Pearl, a white highlighter which added some light on top of cheekbones at their highest point. "It was about multi-highlighting," he explained. Eyes were mascara-free with a bit of white kohl liner. For tonal lips, he chose nude lipstick.

GET THE LOOK – HAIR: To achieve this sleek hairstyle, Mascolo-Tarbuck first went through hair with straighteners to get it super straight. She then sectioned off two pieces from front to back, tied them at the back with a piece of leather and added a ponytail underneath. "I dried the hair without any product," she explained, "but I used loads of label.m hairspray to keep the look super sleek. Also, label.m Resurrection Dust kept hair dry on top."
