Video: Lily Donaldson’s Flying Hair

Check out this fabulous video of Lily Donaldson’s hair, in super slow-mo. Shot by her father Matthew Donaldson, a famed London photographer, and with Sam McKnight one of my favourite hairdressers on hair, it’s an extraordinary piece of fashion film-making.
I also found a Behind the Scenes version which shows Sam’s assistant Eamonn Hughes prepping Lily’s hair (Eamonn is also an amazing hairdresser – you don’t assist someone like Sam for years without being incredible!) And Val Garland on makeup. Enjoy.

 


 

New Collection – Lancome Ultra Lavande

I’m very excited about this week’s launch of Lancome‘s new collection for Spring, Ultra Lavande – and there’s a few reasons why. One, because it’s shades of purple and lavender which never go out of season at MM HQ, two because it’s Aaron de Mey who created it (one of my makeup artist crushes), and three, it has Julia Restoin-Roitfield as the new spokesmodel. I did her makeup in London and not only is she gorgeous with the style you’d expect from someone who basically grew up at Paris Vogue, she’s also a really lovely, friendly girl. Check out the behind the scenes video of the making of the new Ultra Lavande commercial. Then go get your lavande on (I know I will be).

Video: Eniko’s Diamond Dip

I found this incredible video of Hungarian supermodel Eniko (yes, she is a Victoria’s Secret model, and also an all round lovely girl), with makeup by the unbelievably talented New Zealand born, NY based makeup artist, Aaron de Mey. Now Creative Director for Lancôme, here is a fine example of what the man can do. This is some serious makeup indeed.
