Day three brought a whole lot of liner, Parisian street tans and freckles. Pretty, sprayed on freckles.


The coolest beauty, hair and tan combo came at David Koma. Make-up was all highlighted cheeks with the slickest, straightest tram track liner in town. Sharon Dowsett aka MUA supremo was heading up Team Maybelline, to create this eye opener. Love. It was done using Maybelline Master Precise eyeliner and some masking tape, to ensure both lines were sharp. Hair was pulled back into sectioned sports luxe waves courtesy of Nick Irwin using Catwalk by Tigi. The hero lock product here? Catwalk by Tigi Bodylifting Spray, soaked in at the roots and sides, then dragged through the rest. And finally, the tan, a Parisian glow to go with London edge, was spritzed on by bronzers Nichola Joss and Jules Heptonstall. Street style tan? Done.

Over at Preen by Thornton Bragazzi it was all about freckles, lots of splattered on freckles. Thinking all things beachy, St Tropez Self Tan Dark Mousse was pumped into little pots, then a large round paint brush was used to splatter on the colour over a lighter instant tan, also by St Tropez. The result? A summery smattering of DIY freckles. These were complimented by Val Garland’s drawn on freckles on the face and just-been-to-the-gym-cheeks. Tresses were swept into a wet look up front and into a crimped bun round the back.


And all things beauty limbered up to look pretty sporty at Richard Nicholl. The muse for both hair and make-up was late 90s Kate Moss aka the Johnny Depp years. Sharon Dowsett and her Maybelline team – yep they’ve been busy – used lots of mascara and khol liner, applied like a school girl, to create naughty, sporty eyes.
Clarisonic were on hand doing 60 seconds facials on the models using the infamous cleansing brush and Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser, so that skin would look super fresh with only minimal concealer required. A Nike tick shape of peachy sheen was also used on the cheekbones, which looked so beautiful and fresh. Hair-wise, locks had an athletic/Kate feel, with John Frieda Brilliant Brunette Hairspray and Liquid Shine used to pull the top back and keep the ends all kinds of textured. Oh and we couldn’t leave out the nails. Done by top nail pro Michelle Humphrey using Maybelline New York shades, she worked Green With Envy and Tutti Frutti into a transparent glaze for a washed out 90s nod. The green hue was also a high five to the Tinkerbell inspo also weaved into Nicholl’s show. Grown up pastels are so here for the new season.
