If the hair and beauty looks from Runway 3 at Melbourne Spring Fashion Week don’t provoke your latent wanderlust, you may not posses an adventurous spirit at all.

Mecca Cosmetica‘s lead make-up artist Kenneth Higgins explained “the look for tonight is inspired by the whole show, musicians and a world traveller kind of feel. So beautiful, glowing skin, she’s soft around the edges, a little bit melted”. When it comes to the eyes “layers of shadow are applied wet that give a smouldering sheen” and then bronzing gel is added to the cheeks to suggest “warmth and structure rather than a formal contour”. When recreating the look your choice of red lip should be “strong, exotic, almost an eccentric kind of brightness” suggests Kenneth.

MSFW’s Hair Director Kevin Murphy‘s tresses tend set the scene and tie the seemingly disparate designer concepts together. This time around he looked to “southern European gypsies from the 40’s”. “because they always had really curly hair, they were always trying to pull the hair down. I wanted to keep it humble looking because of the opulence in the clothes…it’s sort of scrappy but no too scrappy”. Protip: Try prepping your hair with a mixture of Kevin Murphy’s Hair Resort spray (or other beachy spray) and Body Builder (or similar creamy, volumising mousse) together before attempting a luxe style for voluptuous texture. Kevin continues, “this show is about embellishment, multi-culturalism, there’s a bit of luxury  thrown in there as well so that’s why it’s a slightly couture style.”
