Q&A WITH MAKE-UP ARTIST, HANNAH MURRAY
Tell us about the look we are seeing on Helmut Lang’s Fall 2013 runway.
A monochromatic look based around creamy polished skin, a subtle glossed mushroom eye and either strong dark brows or bleached brows depending on the girls hair color. It’s strong in it’s simplicity and absence of color.
What new beauty item can’t you live without?
The new NARS brow pencils - they have a waxy texture which makes defining brows foolproof. You’re not going to get a hard solid shape which is never a good look!
Any industry skincare tips to surviving fashion week?
Good old fashioned advice - water, good food and sleep. And SK-II masks are miracle workers (although I’ve run out before we’ve even begun!).
What beauty trend do you see dominating the runways this season?
An easy boyish beauty with a tough edge - whether that comes from a heavier brow or black rimmed eyes next to chocolate lids, I feel I’m leaning towards giving the girls a polished darkness.
The Helmut Lang girl must have a muted metallic cream eyeshadow in her make-up bag.
I’m using NARS Cythère Velvet Gloss Lip Pencil , which gives the most beautiful tonal sheen to the eye. It gives an effortless modern edge to your look without looking make up-y.
