DAKS London for Milan Fashion Week AW15/16

All makeup and hair was created by our AOFM students for this international designer during Milan Fashion Week. DAKS is a well established British luxury fashion house founded in 1894. The brand became known for its ready-to-wear tailoring and is renowned for its tailoring and synonymous house check. Although classic in tailoring DAKS do throw in some wonderfully unexpected and quirky pieces each season.  This season had a military feel with smart shiny black hats and a red/monochrome palette.

The look was very fresh with a pinched cheek to give the ascetic of vitality and natural health and all the models were checked for noticeable stubble and any offenders were whisked away with the fantastic Dermalogica Shave Kit that has everything needed for an ultra close shave (Kit includes Daily Clean Scrub, Pre-shave Guard, Soothing Shave Cream and Post Shave Balm).  Then we thoroughly prepared the skin by using the PH-balanced Dermalogica Ultra Calming cleanser that gives the skin a delicate yet effective cleanse, Dermalogica Multi-active Toner follows this. This toner is ultra light and preps the skin for proper moisture absorption for the Dermalogica Active Moist that is a superb oil-free moisturiser. A little Lucas Pawpaw Ointment to rehydrate the lips was popped on, and this was blotted down a little just as the boys went to walk.

Using Bobbi Brown tinted Eye Brightener to refresh and conceal under the eye area hiding any signs of fatigue. A very light application of Bobbi’s Foundation Stick buffed into the skin used only where the skin needed perfecting. A very light dusting of NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder to keep the skin from being too oily.

Our hair team created an almost undone look. Straight, forward gently swept fringe in a very matt finish.
