CUB Beauty Editor Sarah Harrison went backstage at Belle Sauvage, 
observing The Body Shop MUA's and Toni & Guy stylists:

The impressive queue collecting around the Freemasons Hall before Anna and I went backstage at Belle Sauvage only contributed to our eager anticipation of what would await us: the typeface and palette on the invites indicated a vibrant East meets West frenzy and I wasn't disappointed (read Anna's review here).

The collision of vibrant and muted palettes was immensely effectual, set off with a customised lipstick: created by combining exclusive new Colour Crush Lipsticks in the shades Enrapture Red and Crazy Sexy Crimson (release date of September) matching the main colour featured within Belle Sauvage's collection. The flawless make-up was contoured with the yet to be released brow palettes which were also used on brows and lips (a multi-use investment product). Sauvage's soft look embraced the essence of "young girl glamour" with a classic soft smoky eye, created with a liner smudged into the lashes - a technique the MUA's chose as it can easily be recreated at home.

Sauvage's AW13 collection was intensified with the creation of killer fringes, bright colour and incredible head pieces Anna and I witnessed first hand the blunt fringes being cut and spray painted to painstaking perfection.    The look touched on the stereotypical Japaneses school girl with elements of Oriental warriors combining a flawless look with edgy colour and lines. The futuristic element of colour was explored with blonde and black hair which was perfectly scraped back into a pair of impressively straight pigtails accompanied by the blunt fringes, which were sprayed around the perimeter of the fringe with either red, white or black.
