With a ladylike collection with lots of evening wear, MAC make-up artist Val Garland wanted to offer a contrast with the makeup, "I wanted her to be a little different, cooler plus Marios likes makeup devoid of colour so I brought the focus to the skin", says Garland. Skin was polished and highlighted using a custom blended glitter gel (applied under the brow bone and out to the temples) and a few drops of oil applied over foundation and patted in with a fan brush on the inner corners of the eyes and swept down the nose. MAC powder blush in Dame was patted onto lips for a natural, matte finish.

Anthony Turner for L'Oreal Professionnel was on the same page with a low pony with a messy hair line and centre parting to serve as a contrast against the sophisticated pieces in the collection. Turner explained that some of the girls will be wearing hats that cover one eye to make her appear a bit darker and more mysterious.
