PFW A/W ‘11 Beauty Report: Costume National

06 March 2011

It's that sixties show at Costume National, with nods to Twiggy who made black eyeliner and nude lips the trend du jour. With an eye socket spanning black liner, finished with a slick of clear MAC Pro Longwear lip gloss to mirror the vinyl fabrics in the collection, it was sixties a go-go.

The hair was inspired by the same era. Paul Hanlon sculpted a 2 inch wide low side parting (again, very Twiggy) and used gel and a stencil to create a strip along the parting before pulling it into a low ponytail (these ponies are becoming a serious habit for A/W '11). The finishing touch came with a piece of vinyl fabric being wrapped around the hair, tying together the sixties inspired look in one flick of a pony.
