A Modern, Tough, Veronica Lake

EBT reports from backstage at London Fashion Week

At Michael van der Ham make-up artist Lauren Parsons adorned a traditional 50s feline eye with gold leaf for a modern take on a classic. She used a a natural hues Paint Pot under the eye to create subtle shadow and MAC Pro Chroma Graphic pencil in either NC15 or NC120 in the lower water line to give subtle, sexy feel to the eyes.

Luke Hersheson prepped hair with Pli before tonging and pinning hair in place to set. Hair was let loose, brushed through with a soft bristle brush and misted with plenty of L'Oreal Professional tecni art fix design. It's slightly more wavy than the classic Lake look which gives it more edge.
