The delicate and ornate fabric textures within the Michael van der Ham spring/summer 2015 collection were paired with a make-up look inspired by fresh skin tones. Make-up artist Sam Bryant, using MAC, created a subtle beige look with Studio Sculpt Foundation applied over a base of Fix Plus for a flawless complexion without luminosity. Pro Sculpting Powder softly defined the cheeks and lips were patted down with foundation to remove any red colour. Finally, Camel Coat Paint Pot was applied onto the eyelids before metallic moon shapes in pewter, gold or blue were stuck on just above the pupils for a wet raindrop effect.

Hair Stylist Luke Hersheson kept the look simple using lots of dry shampoo and L’Oreal Fresh Dust to get a really matte texture, before styling hair into a messy bun. “We pulled lots of strands out so it’s a little bit ethereal and romantic,” Hersheson said of the finished look.

Dual textured nails complemented the textures within the collection. Butter London’s global colour ambassador Katie Jane Hughes applied single coats of Yummy Mummy and Dobs onto the nails, before using an ombre brush to create a delicate, dipped glitter effect on top.
