MAKEUP: Lisa Eldridge for Mac

HAIR: Shon for John Frieda

SNAPSHOT: The 1920s meets modern day styles.

THE SCOOP: Eldridge described the makeup as "20s inspired but not in a vintage way" whilst the finger wave created in the hair was given a contemporary, graphic edge.

GET THE LOOK MAKEUP: The skin was moisturised with Mac Studio Moisture Cream before it was concealed with Mac Face and Body Foundation to create the illusion of perfect skin. Highlighter was worked into the skin and Pro Sculpt cream was used to contour the cheekbones. A "spiritual eye" was created using Metal X eyeshadow in Cyber and Vintage Coin - these shades were smudged for a soft, smokey eye before Fluidline liner was applied to the roots of the lashes. Liquid gloss was added at the last-minute to create a mirror glass effect and although lashes were curled, there was no mascara at this show. Foxy Lady Kohl Pencil was applied on the lips, with a touch of Matte Mix Medium over the top to tone the colour down.

GET THE LOOK HAIR: The 1920s finger wave was given a modern twist by creating a strong, graphic look that had shape and texture. Comb marks were left in and set with plenty of hairspray and a hidden ponytail was tucked under the hair at the back for a nod to the Oriental element seen in Osman's collection.
