Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury, who was working independently at the Jill Stuart show Monday morning, went for a "punk-rock chick, with a purple, shimmery, very wet eye." The eyes were smudged "but still beautiful," said a senior member of Tilbury's makeup team.

"The emphasis is on the eyes," she added, noting that Tilbury used her own color cosmetics line, called My Face, to make the eyes pop.

Lips, meanwhile, were kept subtle with a nude hue and a peachy-pink blush was applied to the cheeks.

In keeping with the punk rock theme, hairstylist Bob Recine, who was working on behalf of the Italian hair care brand Barex, scrunched hair with his hands for a slept-in feel and doused locks with hair spray. The result? A tousled and textured look with much volume.

The idea was to create a slightly different look for each girl and if hair was thick and heavy, Recine used hair spray with less hold, while if hair was lighter, he used heavy hold hair spray.

"The clothes are easy and free, so I didn't want to overstyle the hair," he said. "It's a real look. We're not trying to tame the frizz.

"Jill [Stuart] has a great sensibility about hair," added Recine, "and she wasn't looking for a hairstyle, but just a girl."

The 'do was designed to have lots of flyaways and movement as girls strutted down the catwalk.
