LONDON — An army of pastel punks stormed the catwalk at Henry Holland. Lucia Pica kept faces bare, while eyes were given what she called a “lived-in, urban” look. She used a matte eyeliner effect under the eyes (a mix of MAC’s Smolder pencil, followed by Fluidline in Blacktrack and Carbon eyeshadow to set it) while on eyelids, she used MAC’s Shine.

 

Mascara was only applied on top lashes and then taken off with fingers for an out-all-night look.

 

Hairstylist Adam Reed created a sleek and shiny ponytail, inspired by Mods. Hair was straightened using Babyliss’ ceramic iron, then worked with Reed and Percy hairspray and Volumizing No Oil Mist, before being pulled back from the temples on the top of the head and then on the nape.

 

For nails, Sophy Robson used Denny Leighton varnishes in lavender, pistachio and apricot, creating an “ombre” effect, or as she put it, “a glam take on the chipped look.”
