This season, Willow was all about “a strong, powerful woman, yet in a simple way”, as explained make-up designer Ayako. NARS products were used throughout with a strong emphasis on the eye. Black moon eyeliner coupled with black eye shadow in Night Breed to contrast to the neutral colors used on the skin. “The lips were kept simple” explained Ayoko, who used a beige Belle Du Jour lipstick topped with Greek Holiday gloss to add moisture and shine. The whole color palette reinforced the simple yet structured, tailored dresses paired with long thigh high boots.

Hairstylist Omar Lopez chose the simple and classic yet elegant pony tail to complement what proved to be a very intricate, detailed line of clothing. Armed with an arsenal of GHD products, he started with sea spray and a blow dry to add texture, and finished with Reflection and Ultimate Finish for that matte blended look. The look was a high pony tail, with two sections of the hair twisted on the top.
