We know we shouldn't have favourites but we can't help but love everything about Mary Katrantzou, in fact we love her so much that she won the award for Next Young Designer of the Year at the ELLE Style Awards last week. So basically we have spent all of LFW looking forward to her show this morning - and it didn't disappoint. The incredible prints we saw last season we re-interpreted and translated in to knits with embellishments, reflectivity fabrics and contrasting textures and colours (we could gush for a while) - BUT, back to the beauty and what we were really there for. Last season we had a low, naturally textured pony with and crayola, metallic lips - this season we had fluffy pom-pom hair and two-step liner.

MAC make-up artist Val Garland (she's a busy lady this season) took up the liner to reflect the structured, architectural pieces within the collection. This came to life with a two step liner in MAC Penultimate Eye Liner, which squared off into the inner of the eye, curved over the lash line and extended out into a point. The liner being the focus of the look everything else was pared back with alabaster, highlighted skin with MAC Face and Body Foundation and Strobe Cream and a touch of balm on the lips.

Wella Hair Stylist Anthony Turner explained that the collection came up quite high on the neck so he felt the hair needed to be up. His hair pom-pom was inspired by cool Japanese kids, it was slightly teased, fluffy and flyaway - the key to this style is to sit it right on top of the head. Wella Professionals Shape Control Styling Mousse and Superset Finishing Spray provided the hold to keep the pom-pom in place.
