The Look: Softly Flushed Skin
Created by make-up artist Lucia Pieroni, and using MAC-only products, the idea behind this look was to keep things ‘fresh’ and ‘cool.’ To stay in line with the structured theme of the hair (casual, slicked back ponytails), skin was subtly contoured with both blush and highlight to accentuate cheekbones, while models were given a hazy smokey eye using taupes and browns for a softer finish.
How To Do It: To replicate the brows, use minimal product and instead fluff them up by running a clean spoolie onto a hard soap like the pros did backstage. Pass the spoolie back over the brows, brushing through the balmy texture and you’ll soon see your arches take on a feathered yet defined shape.

The Look: Smokey Eyes Reinvented
Make-up artist Erin Parsons wanted the model’s make-up to have a ‘70s, boho vibe at Alice and Olivia. Instead of black, she used a blend of golds, glittering greens and dark liner to define and enhance eyes. The best bit? It was created with just one, affordable palette: Maybelline’s City Eyeshadow Palette in Urban Jungle. Try it yourself by layering the shades together, focusing on placing gold at the centre of the lids for a wide-eye effect.
How To Do It: To keep the focus on the eyes, steer clear of blusher and highlight. Instead, balance the look and maintain the tonal finish with a sweep of bronzer. Buff a cream or powder bronze into the apples of the cheeks and down the bridge of the nose for extra warmth and creaminess.
The Look: Glossy Skin & Sculpted Features
‘Symmetric definition’ was the inspiration for the chiselled looks created at Tom Ford. First, skin was primed with Tom Ford’s Research Serum Concentrate for a smooth, even canvas, before foundation was applied all over for creamy, full-coverage look. Eyes were then swept with the brands cult Eye Quad in Suspicion, with each shade layered for intense colour payoff. Light brown liner was used in the inner waterline for extra intensity. To keep everything neutral, lips were layered with glossy nude shades, while brows were filled in with light pencil strokes for a natural effect.
How To Do It: Highlighter and a subtle contour are the real heroes for this look. Use the latter along the cheekbones, jawline and temples to help draw light to the centre of the face, then take your highlighter and apply it directly to the high points of the cheekbones to amplify the sculpted effect.
