A dreamy collection of holographic fabrics and ethereal layers with a fibre optic glow in the dark finale.
A young Kate Moss – the kind of girl you want to be – with fresh, sporty skin and an eye that’s rooted in reality; grounded by black kohl and mascara. The stylist wanted honesty and intimacy – she said if there are tan lines then don’t hide them. The Clarisonic team bridged the gap between skin care and make-up, ensuring that faces were cleansed, massaged and moisturised. With great casting, this was our easiest show!

It’s always great to see writer Anna-Marie Solowij of www.thisisbeautymart.com backstage as she has such an intelligent take on beauty. Here’s what she said in The Beauty Spot about ‘nothing’ make-up. It’s really something…
Natural, nude, barely there, sheer, transparent, simple, healthy, clean: this is the make-up lexicon for SS15. And yes, it does sound like a trend that could – on a bad day – be considered a little boring. Even, dare I say, non-existent. But today is a good day and, although the same references keep cropping up show after show (a natural 90s girl who has just woken up/walked out of the sea/is standing on a street corner), there is definitely something in all this ‘nothing’. “You may think it’s nothing,” says Maybelline’s UK Make-Up Director Sharon Dowsett, who was creating an ‘updated, washed-out, 90s look’ at Richard Nicoll, using a colour palette of flesh tones from chocolate to alabaster. “But it takes a lot of make-up for nothing to look beautiful,” she claims, reeling off seven products used on every model’s face to achieve a flawless complexion.
