Tory Burch:

Diane Kendal used Tory Burch's brand new make-up range on the models backstage. A warm peachy blusher paired with Mac Cream Colour Base in Bronze Frost on the eyes gave a sultry day look.

Backstage nice guy, Tom Pecheux for Mac wanted to mirror the gilded gold and black in the collection with a statement eye. First he created a winged gold shape using Mac Liquid Liner in Gold, once dried he added a smaller feline flick over the top in Mac Black Track.

Rodarte:

'Fantasy characters' were the inspiration behind this theatrical make-up look. James Kaliardos for Nars layered both shades in new Nars Eye Duo in Dolomites for a reddish brown eye that went right up into the brows. On lips James used Nars Liner in Mambo before applying a bespoke lip glitter, in either pink or brown depending on the models skin tone.

Odile Gilbert used clip-in extensions to create Fairytale princess like manes of hair. To get a natural wave she braided each girl first and left before shaking out and adding gold and adorned barrettes.

In-keeping with the theme of childhood nostalgia the models nails were painted in one coat of Sally Hansen Polish in Vintage Confetti or Pink Dream (out September).
