The beauty looked was a marriage of clean “natural, dewy” faces with Seventies retro glamour.

For Vivienne Tam’s collection inspired by the impeccable and minimal Japanese Garden, Leon Gorman for Cutler/Redken created a very natural, “fresh” look. Locks were revived with dry shampoo and then spritzed with Redken Fashion Worth 12 hair spray, given a deep side part, and pulled back into a simple, messy knot, meant to look “like [the models] have done it themselves.” “I don’t want it to look like a hairdresser has touched it,” he said.

The beauty looked conceived by Andy Koh for Maybelline was a marriage of clean “natural, dewy” faces with Seventies retro glamour. On the skin he used Maybelline Fit Me foundation in two tones: a lighter shade on the t-zone and cheekbones to highlight and a darker one on the cheeks and jawline to “bring out the natural shape of the face,” a look he said would make faces pop on the runway. Keeping with the spirit of the Seventies, Koh then used Maybelline Eye Studio Color Plush Silk eye shadow in gold and green metallics on the lid and defined with copper in the crease. For clean and natural-looking voluminous lashes, Koh wiped the wand before applying Maybelline Volum’Express The Falsies mascara. Giving the models a “clean and girly, not doll-y” pout, as he described it, Koh first primed lips with gold cream shadow and then applied Maybelline Color Sensational High Shine Lipstick in Coral Lustre, topping off the look with Shine Sensational Lip Gloss in Minty Sheer.
