THE SCOOP: Michael Van Der Ham brings exquisite fabrics together in unique ways, mixing mohair with sheer jacquards and satin organzas. Sponsored by Liberty this season, the designer has teamed up with the store to use their Art Fabrics in his panelled dresses and separates. Makeup-wise, Branka kept it simple, aiming for a no-makeup makeup look.

GET THE LOOK - MAKEUP: Branka used a really light base for the no-makeup appearance, and then dabbed oily spots with Prep + Prime Powder to ensure a flawless complexion. Using a soft brush, she swept Rubenesque pigmented colour, a golden, pearlescent hue, over the face, and to highlight the eye she used Vanilla pigment. Finally, for a little accent on the inside of the eye, she applied Violet pigment. Lashes were left totally bare. To complete the soft, natural face, pale lipstick was dabbed onto the mouth.

GET THE LOOK - HAIR: First, Pecis sprayed Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder through hair to give it a dry texture, then he took two small sections at either side of the head and wove them into a figure eight through a metal pin. He then straightened hair to create a wavy halo at the sides and braided the rest of the hair into two full-length plaits, which he then folded back on themselves. "The two outer braids are pinned over the inner braids, effectively to hide them," Pecis said. To keep hair in place, mist on Bumble and Bumble Does It All spray to finish.
