Issa: Little Russian Doll

EBT reports from backstage at London Fashion Week


By Suzanne Scott


The reference "little Russian doll meets a bond girl" gives you, according to MAC make-up artist Lucia Pieroni, a blown-out smoky eye in MAC Paint Pot in Quite Natural - intense pigment at the lash line, gradually fading out. Cheeks are rosy with MAC Matte Blush in Frankly Scarlet and temples highlighted with MAC Pigment in Vanilla. And just as we have seen at a lot of shows this week, the lip colour was custom blended - this time a mix of MAC lipstick in Lady Danger and Neon Orange. Pieroni describes the lip as "blown-out" also - with the colour at its most intense in the centre of the mouth.


Toni & Guy's Cos Sakkas spritzed hair all over with Prep Volume Plumping Mousse before blast drying the hair upside to give it a lot of lift. He then lifted it at the roots and sculpted it back and in position with a curling tong before brushing everything through.
