LFW A/W ‘11 Beauty Report: Marios Schwab

22 February 2011

Wowzers - a very calm backstage area at a Marios Schwab this morning. These girls are superhuman, aerodynamic samurai warriors. Val Garland has whipped up beauty look that is all about matte and shine; matte eyes with a dot of iridescence in the middle, a matte t-zone and matte lip in the girl's natural colour with highlight on the cheekbone. This is like hyper-real skin and we'll be bagging us some of the MAC Eye shadow in Moleskin. Over in hair, Paul Hanlon for L'Oreal Professionnel is working up Japanese sumo-style hair. It's sleek and clean and the guys are melting L'Oreal Professionnel Gloss wax into the hair to create the elegant balls on top of the girls heads. "I'm lucky enough to have lots of Japanese guys on my team, so this is something they know exactly how to do, " says Paul, "but God help the next hairdresser!" Hmmm. We're with you there Paul. Powerful stuff.
