THE SCOOP: With an inspiration like "Surfer girl meets Seventh Samari," the beauty is bound to be fun. Thakoon's s/s 2010 collection is a jarring mix of vibrant colours - lots of water inspired blues and strong, bold patterns. So the hair and makeup demanded restraint. Kendal painted faces in a monotone palette seeped in pinks and beiges for a strong, fresh, slightly futuristic vibe. Inspired by the wave patterns in the clothing, Scrivo prepped for the show by dying hair extensions myriad tones, from champagne to mahogany to pewter, and fastening them into models' locks to create edgy dimension. After that, the hair was pulled half up and wound into a casual, boppy bun.

On the eyelids, Kendal used D.Gorgeous Eye Shadow, a pale purple matte shadow that's new for spring, paired with Kuala Lumpur Duo Eye Shadow which was blended in the creases and up to the brow. Skin glowed thanks to Orgasm Illuminator (new for Spring 2010), Multiple Bronzer in Malasia and Blush in Hungry Heart. Lips were muted with foundation.

Scrivo used hair colour from Wella to dye hair pieces that were fastened into each model's hair. Locks were then separated into top and bottom sections, and the top section was slicked back into a tight bun. The bun was left a little undone, like a high school girl who nonchalantly looped up her hair in class.

GET THE LOOK - NAILS: The nails were made to look like an extension of the skin with Shirley Temple Peony, a pinky nude shade from Priti Polish.
