Pack your passports and get ready to take to the skies because Laura Mercier make up artist, Talia Shobrook booked us all a first class ticket to Vegas backstage at Jenny Packham (pictured below). Imagining a 1960s Rat Pack on a trip to the city of bright flashing lights, she "conveyed womanly decadence by making the eyes look like they'd been accessorised with jewellery".
Taking a trio of blues, she layered Laura Mercier Midnight Bleu Pencil beneath the Black Turquoise crayon in a gentle sweep that hugged the upper lash line - before adding a pop of Baked Eye Colour shadow in Lagoon just on the inner corners and centre of the lid. A sweep of low lying bronzer, a wash of Sparkling Pink Lipstick to create a translucent flush on the cheek - plus a 'C' shaped highlight around the outer corner of the eye and models' were ready to hit the casino floor.
And as Jenny Packham went west, Vera Wang flew east with make up artist, Lucia Pieroni donning her flight socks and heading for Rajasthan. "This is a woman who is feminine and sensual," said Pieroni as she washed Cle de Peau's shadow quad of shimmering gold and brick reds around the eye in a blown-out shape before applying a slick of brown mascara.
Add this to James Kaliardos' India-meets-Italian-palazzo vibe seen earlier this week at Diane Von Furstenberg and we've got a ticket to ride Spring Summer 13's top travel trend.
