I love me some Bec & Bridge, so I always like to see what the girls dish up. They worked with Wayne Chappell who directed the hair for KMS and Max May, Lara Bingle's go-to makeup man, to create these beautiful, beautiful faces. Seriously, I wish you were there with me to see them in all their glory. Gorge. The inspiration behind the hair look was the Davali Festival in India and all the "excitement and theatre" that comes with it. Wayne took what was otherwise a sophisticated ponytail and loaded it up with powder. Yep, powder. (And no, it was Johnson's—we asked—it was a special KMS home-brew.) Of course, if you're after the texture without the mess, backcombing and backbrushing will give you that just-out-of-bed look.
Meanwhile, over on Max's side, apart from the golden child—one statement model who looked like she'd received a face full of glitter two minutes before I turned up backstage—it was all about "surrealism" and dewy skin. Dewy and dang hot. Max mixed MAC Strobe Cream into face cream to give models a gorgeous finish. It was all about the skin which had a slightly ethereal look to it thanks to the lower lash line and brows being toned down with a mascara that was the colour of concealer. The muted palette featured all creamy products which again helped with that dewy finish.
