Derek Lam

Dark lashes topped with purple mascara complemented the pretty pink eyes at Derek Lam created by Tom Pecheux. The hair was styled so it sat close to the scalp before falling in tousled waves.

Proenza Schouler

Diane Kendal applied a sheer cream eyeshadow to lids at Proenza Schouler for a reflective shine, while the rest of the face was left natural-looking and dewy with concealer used only where needed. The hair was dampened with hairspray and swept to one side in a sleek semi-quiff by Guido Palau.

Alexander Wang

The models displayed metallic shadow on the eyes with clever contouring and highlighting and low, sporty ponytails.

Altuzarra

Another pretty in pink makeup. The look Tom Pecheux created consisted of pink lips and false lashes wore at the centre of the lids only. The skin was dewy and flushed with rosy pink blush, and brows were groomed. To complete the look the hair was fastened in low chignons.
