Last year Bec & Bridge showed a stand-out collection with an Akubra collaboration that became one of the most talked about moments of the week.
This year they needed to back it up – minus the tricks – and they did.
Showing a well-edited, wearable collection of soft botanical print dresses, pants and unstructured jackets. The show was set against an incredible floral wall designed by Saskia Havekes of Grandiflora with the models hair and make-up drawing inspiration from the Mediteranean.
“It was all about Mediterranean gloss and glow at the Bec & Bridge show (that rhymes)” says MAC Make-up Director Nicole Thompson.
Face: Apply a cream based foundation with your fingertips. Avoid powder to keep the feel fresh-from-the-ocean.
Cheeks: The cheeks were all about achieving a peach glow so dab MAC Something Special Cream Blend Blush across the face. Spritz with a moisturising spray to seal the make-up and give a wet-look finish.
Eyes: MAC Pop Hush Cream Colour Base and MAC Pearl Cream Colour Base on the eyelids. Sweep your lashes with MAC Zoomlash Mascara.
Lips: Give your lips a whole lot of shine and a hint of colour with a custom blend of MAC Shy Girl Lipstick mixed with MAC Freckletone Lipstick.
“The pool-side ‘do was inspired by the glamorous women on Italy’s Amalfi Coast,” says Alan White from ghd.
Get the look.
Step 1. Create a wave with the mini ghd styler and apply a smoothing serum to the hair. Run your fingers through it to create texture.
Step 2. Pull the hair to the back and knot it into a bun at the nape of the neck.
Step 3. Use a blow-dryer to set the look and let the fly-away’s lightly stick to the face for a beach boho feel.
“A sheer white nail colour was applied to the fingernails and toenails to complement the cool sophistication of the Bec & Bridge Collection.” Gina Schachte from OPI.
DIY: Start with a clean manicure, keep the nails square, and apply two coats of polish of OPI Don’t Touch My Tutu.
