SNAPSHOT:Cool rock girl

THE SCOOP: Key makeup artist Graham, described this season's mood as "cool rock girl who idolises Janis Joplin and studies pagan literature". The look is "effortless and fresh with an underlying darkness". Graham was also drawn to the "electric blue" shades that are prevalent in Felder Felder's collection this season. One of her key products is "an indigo colour on the eyes", as "it's different to the black we've seen a million times before. From baby blue to navy, it's everywhere in the summer collection".

The rock vibe was central Erwin too. He named "Jim Morrison from The Doors", as his inspiration for a "hippy with some rock'n'roll feel".

GET THE LOOK MAKEUP: To start, Graham prepped the skin with Moisture Lush Moisturiser and Mac Face and Body Foundation for a fresh and plump look that is "seemingly clean, but achieves a raw and expensive looking skin". The foundation was then warmed to double-up as a concealer too. To prepare the eye area she used Mac Pressed Blot Powders before applying a matte lip moisturiser as a base to the lips. Brows were combed and filled in if necessary, but left to look natural, and lashes were kept mascara free. Liquid liner was applied in Mac Chroma Cake along with a graphic line of Mac Indigo Eye Pencil. blotted the T-Zone for a non-greasy finish.

GET THE LOOK HAIR: Erwin used the Tigi Catwalk range, starting with Your Highess Volume Firm Hold Hairspray to set the hair which had been twisted with irons before being brushed out. For a sleek finish, he used a lightweight hairspray, Sleek Mystique, to allow their to move on the catwalk.
