With a teenage girl's bedroom as a backdrop to the catwalk, the hair and makeup at Markus Lupfer's Spring/Summer 2014 show could only be "angelic" said Bumble and Bumble stylist Halley Brisker backstage on day two of London Fashion Week.


"These girls have incredible, amazing hair. It's that kind of thing when you see someone with beautiful hair, you ask them how they did it and the person just says 'it's like this naturally'", Brisker told us backstage.

So - how did he replicate this look?

Straighteners and tongs were swapped for a more traditional approach. The hair was spritzed with Bumble's Thickening Spray and tied into two buns which were left in while the models were in makeup. Once the hair was taken out it was blasted with a dryer for a light, fluffy texture to create natural kinks. (It's easy when you know how).

As for the makeup, Lucy Burt used Liz Earle's Superskin Concentrate to get a seamless finish on the skin before applying the brand's Super Skin Moisturiser and Sheer Skin Tint for a polished, full coverage.

"I dont' want this to look overdone", she told us. "You can still see the blueness under the models' eyes, as if they have been out late at a party or a concert".

And those dewy, tinted cheeks? TOP BEAUTY TIP ALERT! "Mix a drop of the Superskin Concentrate with a cream blush - I'm using Liz Earle's Camelia - to add an amazing fresh finish to the complexion".

Last but not least, Burt used a black kohl pencil for her "experimental" eyes and brows were "brushed up and sporty".
