At By Johnny (image above) straight, glass-polished hair and make-up and glowing skin with silver chrome eye shadows featured. The metallic silver nails in OPI’s Designer Series Radiance were the perfect hi-tech accent for this look.
The edgy yet feminine make-up at the Ginger & Smart show featured fresh skin, rose lips and barely-there eye makeup. Spring nails in nude shades perfectly complemented the minimalist make-up using OPI’s Don’t Pretzel My Buttons finished with OPI’s Matte Top Coat.
The hair and make-up at Roopa Pemmaraju consisted of a swept up ponytail with a side part combined with nude lips, contoured skin with a dewy look and natural finish. The nails complemented the bright eyeshades with either a vibrant orange, OPI’s In My Back Pocket or a vibrant matte blue, No Room For the Blues.
To match Phoneix Keating’s futuristic collection, the MAC team created a gothic/vampy make-up with dark lips and strong eye-liner. To continue the dark romance trend, Essie came up with a custom nail design – elongated almond shaped clip-ons with a black or white base and a silver vine like pattern on top. Polishes used – Essie Blanc, Essie Licorice and No Place like Chrome.
At the Aurelio Costarella show a high drama look was achieved by combining makeup featuring statement, black whisker-like eye-shadows and nails in with OPI’s Black Onyx with OPI Matte top coat and black diamante.
At Alice McCall all nails were done in soft pink nude shade, Essie Sugar Daddy to compliment the fresh and romantic make-up by the Maybelline team which featured bright blue eyelashes.
Camilla - To complete the oriental inspired eye make up in gold shades, nails were covered in metallic green gold in OPI’s Just Spotted the Lizard.
For the flamboyant Easton Pearson show, Renya Xydis herself created colourful up-dos to compliment the glowing, born that way makeup complexion. Bright eye shadows and statement eyebrows matched the colour of the hair, ie. neon yellow, blue, pink and orange. To complete the fun and quirky look nails were dipped in contrasting neon shades of Miss Frou Frou.
