“The look is dramatic but with a softness to it. The inspiration for the collection was Botticelli and the contrast of black and white; the look pairs a strong eye and a soft lip.”—Diane Kendal, lead makeup artist
Eye: Diane created a warm smoky eye by first blending MAC Smolder Eye Kohl along lash lines and the crease of the lids, then sweeping a black-brown shadow across the lids and under the eyes.
Face: Taupe powder blush sculpted the cheekbones. Pink blush on the apples of cheeks and a gold highlight on the tops of cheekbones balanced the drama of the smoky eye.
Lip: Diane used a layer of nude cream-texture lipstick to cover the natural color of the lips, followed by a sheer white frost.
Pro Tip: “To create a warm smoky eye, blend an eye shadow in a brown hue over the lids.”

“The look is a mix of tribal and whimsical.” —Charlotte Tilbury, lead makeup artist
Eye: Charlotte gave eyes depth, blending a dark brown cream shadow into the crease of the eyelids, and lining the top lash line.
Face: A sheer application of matte bronzing powder under cheekbones and on the temples accentuated the bone structure.
Lip: A vivid pinkish-purple lip pencil used to fill in the lips created a base for layers of MAC Violetta and Cyber Lipsticks.
Pro Tip: “To create an opaque lip color, fill in your lips with liner before layering lipstick on top.”

“Its an all-American supermodel look based on Lauren Hutton in American Gigolo.” —Charlotte Tilbury, lead makeup artist
Eye: MAC Dark Brown Cream Colour Base added depth to the eyes and MAC Silver Cream Colour Base was blended over the lids. A brown liner was applied to top and bottom lash lines and slightly past the outer corners for look of “perfect imperfection.”
Face: Matte bronzer contoured the cheekbones to emphasize bone structure.
Lip: Charlotte painted a nude lipstick on lips, followed by a flesh-toned gloss.
Pro Tip: “Use MAC #30 individual lashes. You can place a few on the outer corners, or go all out and apply to the whole lash line.”
