Despite the madness of Fashion Week, I never get tired of creating makeup looks to go with a new season collection. I always love working on Julien Macdonald’s show because nobody does glitz and glamour quite like him. While I’m known for being the ‘master of nudes’ and my pared-back, natural makeup, Julien’s show is always a great chance to create a more dramatic, glamorous party look – and the Julien Macdonald SS20 look is no exception. This season, I used Suqqu products and Spectrum brushes backstage to create a gorgeous, soft brown smoky eye. Want to try it for yourself at home? Read my breakdown of the look, below.
