L'Oreal @ Matthew Williamson
James Kaliardos looked to the Nineties for inspiration at Matthew Williamson. “It’s very minimal and very natural,” said the makeup artist, who was working with L’Oréal Paris. “The skin is very important.”

Kaliardos applied L’Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Professional Smoothing Resurfacing Primer and L’Oréal Paris True Match Touche Magique before using L’Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Professional High Definition Smoothing Brush Foundation to gently contour the face. He also used L’Oréal Paris Studio Secrets Professional Anti-Dull Skin Primer to add a subtle pink glow to cheeks.
An angled grey stripe across eyelids, created using a blend of hues from the L’Oréal Paris Colour Appeal Trio Pro Eye Shadow in Grey Obsession, added strength and depth to the look, according to Kaliardos. He also used Studio Secrets Eyes Intensifier in Pink 321 on the inner corners of eyes and on cheeks, while lips were finished with a slick of gloss.

Malcolm Edwards, who was working with L’Oréal Professionnel, worked hair into an updo. Starting with a ponytail, Edwards twisted sections of hair before looping and pinning them into place. In some cases, the coif resembled tied-up shoelaces. He also teased hair at the front of the head. He used L’Oréal Professionnel Play Ball Texture Tonic to texture, L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.art Texture Expert Smooth Essence to care and shine up and L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni.art Airfix to finish.
