Makeup Artist Polly Osmond created the look for Tuleh's '70's themed collection with metallic eyes and a soft, nude lip. Hairstylist Yannick d'Is gave the models a smooth, center-parted updo to coincide with the simplicity of the look. Just gorgeous.

Polly Osmond's inspiration for the show's makeup was British actress Charlotte Rampling, at her prime in the seventies. Osmond began by evening out the skin tone with MAC Face and Body Foundation. Next, she brushed a pair of MAC shadows (Corduroy and Embark, both matte, earthy hues) into the crease of the eyelid and along the bottom lash line. She then created a metallic eye with three iridescent powders—MAC Pigment in Yellow Gold on the inner corner of the lid, Rose Gold in the center, and Copper on the outer corner—blending one into the next for an almost ombré effect. "The best brushes are domed and fluffy, which makes the shadow easier to apply and blend," Osmond said. Once the eye color was in place, Osmond brushed the top and bottom lashes with black volumizing mascara and perfected brows with a pencil and clear setting gel. She enhanced the cheekbones with MAC Sculpt and Shape Powder, a contouring and highlighting powder duo, before patting a sheer peachy-brown cream color (MAC Lustre Lipstick in Fresh Brew) into lips. A slick of peachy blossom pink (MAC Lipglass in Florabundance) on top added a shiny finish.

Once the hair was blown out, d'Is used an iron to randomly curl the ends in different directions to achieve a less contrived effect. (Shorter hair was given the same mousse treatment but was finger-curled after blow-drying to maintain the desired natural style.) He finished with a spritz of Redken Vinyl Glam 02 Mega Shine Spray, a lightweight, shine-enhancing mist. The finished style, said d'Is, "has an easy, natural, effortless-looking feel that could work for day or night."

"The designer's hair reference was the seventies," explained Yannick d'Is of Bradley's vision for the models' manes. To d'Is, this meant a smooth, sensual, and sexy look that he kept modern by erring on the side of natural versus stylized. He began by applying Redken Full Frame 07 Protective Volumizing Mousse, a body-boosting and moisturizing styling product that protects strands from heated appliances and humidity, before blowing hair straight but full with a large round brush.
