German model Natassja Kinski meets Hollie Hobbie dolls is a stretch of a reference - even by fashion's standards. But according to a bright-eyed Val Garland at 8am on day two of LFW, the way to get there is simply to follow your nose.
Blending up a fresh, outdoorsy skin at Kinder Aggugini she stippled cheeks with a new L'Oreal BB Blush (available from March) - a translucent gloss that transforms upon contact with the skin to give a bouncy-looking glow.
Adding a "caramel wash" of colour to eyelids using Glam Bronze powder, she pushed the rusty-toned Color Riche Lipstick in Nude into lips for an au natural hint of a tint.
Then things went dotty as she whipped out kohls, lip pencils and eye shadows in chestnut, mahogany and pinky shades, speckling them over cheeks and the nose to give this look a dolly girl vibe.
Over in hair, Malcolm Edwards went for something "elegantly feral". Translation? Lashings of L'Oreal Professionnel Beach Fizz added to clip-in extensions that were placed on a diagonal to give ends a wispy, whimsical texture.
A tong, a clamp and a 'lazy tong" later and we ended up with something that was "like a baby Bjork and a little bit mermaid-y". Makes perfect sense.
