Smoky eyes get a wet look makeover at Temperley

15 September 2008


The collection might not have gone down well with Peaches Geldof but Alice Temperley's shows are famous for creating beautiful and innovative beauty looks - no doubt due to make-up maestro Charlotte Tilbury's touch. As the MAC team frantically prepared 30 models backstage, Charlotte took five to talk us through the look and give us a sneak peek at her face chart. ‘It's all about glossy, 1920s-style eyes in colbalt blue,' she said. ‘We washed cream eyeshadow over the lid, rimmed the eye with smudged black kohl and put gloss over the whole thing. It's like a stained-glass window effect for wet-look smoky eyes.' To balance the look, skin was kept bare and L'Oreal super- stylist Malcolm Edwards topped off the look by meshing a 1920s and 1970s vibe with equestrian influences to create twisted up-dos (the second of the day, incidentally). He wasn't in the mood to chat. ‘I've got 30 models to do,' he told us 20 minutes before the show was due to start, ‘and 15 of them are late!' Nightmare!
