Big backcombing and loud colour at Louise Gray

Bright, playful and a little bit rebellious at Louise Gray...


By Joely Walker

Marine blues, pretty peaches and brilliantly outspoken oranges dominated the palette of MAC make-up artist James O’Riley at Louise Gray. James found his inspiration in ‘the clothes, the hats, the 60’s and, of course, Louise’.


Lips were lined with MAC Chromagraphic Pencil in Genuine Orange and then filled in with softer, peachy tones. For the face James loves to use MAC’s Pro Longwear Concealer £14.50 and Face & Body Foundation £26.50 to give the skin a lovely clean finish. Artistic crowns were hand drawn above the brows in black eyeliner and Marine Ultra Chromagraphic Pencil was used to create the dolly eyes and the cute beauty spot.

Punky, messy and, most certainly, eye-catching. Sam used Fekkai Coiff Bouffant Lifting and Texturising Spray Gel £17 and Sebastian Professional Re-Shaper Hairspray £12.75 to defy gravity and create this bouffant look.
