James Kaliardos used MAC cream colour in March Mist around the eyes with a hint of pink. Loaded lashes and an apricot lip sealed the deal. It's a look I'm definitely trying ASAP!

Tigi's Nick Irwin wanted to create partied/slept-on hairstyle which came to life via a mussed-up side parting and tonged, irregular waves. Tigi Curlesque Mousse was used on the roots before hair was dried and Tigi Catwalk Look Lock Hairspray and Catwalk Shine Spray set the hair after tonging.

Ruffian's design duo, Claude Morais and Brian Wolk took me through the nail look AND their brand new nail range. "We design the manicure and shoes first then the clothes - these inform the design process" they told me.

The mani look is dubbed the 'Ruffian Extreme Look' a contrast of nude polish and a slick of bright painted onto nails free-hand with a small painter's brush. The nail range is available via Birchbox in the US but don't worry I'm drafting a petition to get in the UK, stat!
