For her autumn/winter 2022 digital presentation, Emilia Wickstead looked to the timeless elegance of the 1950s to inform her silhouettes. But the hair and make-up was a little more modern, taking cues from the ’90s, instead. 

“For this look, it was so important that the skin looked amazing. We wanted it to look healthy and hydrated,” says make-up artist Naoko Scintu. Skin was prepped and plumped with the By Terry Baume de Rose Micellar Water, followed by the Baume de rose Toner and Hyaluronic Global Face Cream, which was massaged into models’ faces.

“It’s all about getting that iridescent, glassy look,” explains Scintu.  “So we didn’t want to put too much on.”  To create that flawless finish, Scintu used a combination of the By Terry Hyaluronic Hydra-Foundation and the Hyaluronic Hydra-Concealer, daubing Hyaluronic Hydra-Balm high onto the cheeks to create a sense of colour without too much of a flush. 

“The key element to the look was the eye,” continues Scintu. “We really wanted to do something that had a feeling of the ’90s, so we went for a brown eye.” To achieve this, Scintu used a mix of shades from the By Terry V.I.P Expert Bonjour Paris Palette. 

The lips also leaned into that ’90s element – a very neutral, nude lip, which Scintu created with By Terry Baume de Rose and Hyaluronic Hydra-Concealer.  To finish off, Scintu applied the By Terry Ombré Black star in Blonde Opal to the inner corners of the eye, Cupid’s bow, cheek bones and body, for an extra touch of radiance. 

The hair felt fresh and modern, albeit with similar nods to the ’90s. “Anything above the shoulder we kept down and anything longer we put in a ponytail,” says hairstylist Tosh. Hair was parted to the side, sleek and straight, or,  if naturally textured, shiny and hydrated, and finished off with the occasional hair accessory. “We wanted it to look really minimal and healthy-looking,” he continues. “We wanted to tailor the looks to each girl’s personality.”
