Babushka dolls served as inspiration for the beauty look at Alice McCall. Sophie Roberts (ghd) said, "It's a modern take on Russian Babushka dolls. It's soft, it's romantic." She began by massaging models' heads to soften the hairline and get the baby hairs up and then worked ghd Total Volume Foam through the hair to add body and texture before parted models hair into two low-slung pigtails. These were then braided and pinned up to create a headband braid. Nigel Stanislaus (Maybelline NY) continued the Russian doll theme through the makeup, applying mascara on the top and bottom mascara with two coats in the middle of the lash line for an "extra hit." The centre of the lip was also the focal point as it was the only place that lip colour was applied so that models looked doll-like. Head right this way for your backstage pass.
