Oooh the Moschino Cheap & Chic girl is rebelling this season and there’s only one thing for it: a new beauty look. She’s wiped off the blue liner of last season and instead dabbled with tough beauty love.

Leading the makeup team, and blowing us away with her vice versa looks, Hannah Murray for MAC gave us the lowdown on today’s girl. “The girl this season has more attitude than last season, she’s tough, she’s cool, she’s punky,” with translated into a bold black lip or a graphic eye – think PVC beauty accents.

For the lip look, which half of the girls are sporting, the team used MAC Kohl Power Eye Pencil across the lips with only a chalky, pink cheek to accessorise. Eyes were left bare for extra lip impact.

The girls causing a stir with their eyes had graphic, clean liner in an almond shape. To create, the team sketched the shape using the MAC Technakohl Liner in Graphblack before applying MAC Fluidline in Blacktrack over the top. A slick of clear lipglass at the very last minute finished the look. Backstage Moschino Cheap and Chic AW13, MAC, Pantene, Sam McKnight, Hannah Murray, Marion Newman

Over in the tresses department leading hair stylist Sam McKnight, supported by Pantene, was on the same beauty page; busy knotting the girls’ hair into punk-couture styles that we can all give a go at home - hallelujah, thank you Sam! 

Prepping the hair with Pantene Mousse, Sam and the team dried the product in to create a thicker, more voluminous texture, before tying the hair with black elastic and pinning with black pins. No hiding of hair accessories here.

A quick application of Pantene’s new soufflé product – look out for this one – removed dryness from the ends, and the girls were good to go.

A trio of the girls with blonde locks were treated to punky pink strands in their look, we love… Backstage Moschino Cheap and Chic AW13, MAC, Pantene, Sam McKnight, Hannah Murray, Marion Newman

For her first show this fashion week Marian Newman for MAC played with two colours on the nails. Opting for a 3-2 look using MAC Nail Laquer in Nocturnelle and Girl About Town, Newman had the beauty pack cooing over the playful look.
