Delinquent Schoolgirls, Backstage at Topshop Unique


topshopMakeup artist Hannah Murray described the look at Topshop Unique as a rebellious boarding-school girl, which translated to eyes heavily rimmed with Topshop Beauty Kohl in Coal. “The key is to keep the liner solid-looking—it’s not meant to be grungy,” explained Murray. Mascara, while not particularly popular this season thus far, played its part here to create “super-cloggy” lashes that clumped together. The new Cheek Gels (on shelves this fall) in Sibling and Beep added a hint of color to the face. The inspiration? “I was thinking of flushed choirboys, so I kept the darker blush low on the cheeks and the brighter shade higher up.”

Hairstylist Anthony Turner carried over the schoolgirl vibe by crafting long, straight strands. Where models had layers, Turner deftly placed wefts to bring the length in line. L’Oréal Professionnel Tecni Art Pli, a setting spray, held center parts in place while Mythic Oil imparted luster to the ends. Just before the girls hit the runway, Turner lightly ruffled up the back of the hair to give the impression they “had been up to something naughty.”
