Last Monday the Burberry marquee at Kensington Gardens was awash with handsome boys in lace vests and smart tailoring for the SS16 men’s show. For the makeup I was inspired by 1950’s technicolour film, with its vivid and dynamic colour palette.
The men walked alongside 11 female models, who were wearing Pre-collection pieces, set against a full orchestra - with super-talented singer-songwriter Rhodes at the piano. As my look was inspired by 50s film stars, we kept their makeup immaculate, polished, and slightly warm - with no 12-O’clock shadows. The girls were given a signature tonal look – clean contoured skin with a sculpted eye. I used the amazing new cream eyeshadow from Burberry in Pink Heather, with Bronze kohl on the waterline, Effortless Brow and Burberry Kisses lip colour in Nude Beige... But the real product standout for me was the new contour pen I helped to create: I'm super-excited to share it – coming soon!
