MAKEUP: Mathias Van Hooff for Mac

HAIR: Cos Sakkas for Toni & Guy

SNAPSHOT: The inspiration behind the collection was the image of a women who has just escaped from a mental asylum.

THE SCOOP: Makeup artist Mathias wanted to achieve a "lost, crazy" look, with heavy wild brows, wet, glossy skin and out of control eyeshadow. Sakkas went for the "less is more approach" and created a dual personality with the hair by creating an elegant, chic style through the front and a more undone ponytail at the back.

GET THE LOOK MAKEUP: Mac Pigments in Cornflower and Chocolate Brown were smeared above the eyes, right up to the brows to create a solid, vivid shape. The skin was left polished and glossy with a touch of cream blusher on the cheeks and Flash Balm on the lips. Soft and Gentle was applied on temples and at the top of the cheekbones to add to the "wet skin" appearance.

GET THE LOOK HAIR: Sakkas created a clean, strong side-parting to add to the elegant feel at the front. He then set with a light spray so that it looked as if there was no product in it. The hair was pulled into a low ponytail, with a "delicate, web-like" feel to it. The bars that embellish Lynn's collection this season were spaced out in the ponytail and the hair was pulled out in between each bar to create a bubble effect. Sakkas used Label M Blow Out Spray and Volume Mousse to loosen up the hair at the back.
