A taste of the Orient at Osman

By Suzanne Scott



The faux bob has made a couple of appearances this week, once at Mark Fast at the hands of James Pecis and now at Osman created by John Frieda hair stylist Shon. Hair was gathered in to a really loose, low pony and secured. Shon then pushed the top of the ponytail up and under the hair so that the loose hair ballooned out into the shape of the bob - the remaining pony tail was allowed to hang loose t the back and kinked with tongs. The thinking behind the style was a Geisha, mirroring the Japanese influences in the collection.


Make-up artist Lisa Eldridge used MAC Metal X eye shadows (the star of fashion week) over the lid and under the eye before smudging a black gel liner in at the roots and along the waterline to give a worn-in look. Lashings of clear gloss was applied over the shadow to give a liquid metal effect and, in what is becoming a bit of a theme, lashes were left bare but curled. Lisa brought the Japanese influence to the look with flawless, dewy, highlighted skin which she achieved using MAC Pro Shine Mixing Medium and clear gloss.
