'Handsome, boyish, clean and fresh,' was how Charlotte Tilbury described the look backstage at Sass and Bide.
While looking 'boyish' may not seem all that appealing, there is a pretty effortlessness to this trend. The easiest way to approach the look is to break it down because there are three main aspects: flawless, glossy skin; big, softly defined brows (read powder, not pencil) and washes of contouring around the eyes and under the cheekbones that melts into skin for a natural finish.
At Osman, Lisa Eldridge blended foundation and concealer three to four shades darker than the models skintone to create the look of natural pigmentation on the eyelids and to contour cheekbones. Mascara was a no-no, but in real life a barely-there slick of brown mascara will add definition and keep a girly nuance to the look.
