Jenny Packham

Jenny Packham’s Autumn/Winter 2014 Collection was inspired by the 1970s style of Bianca Jagger, the era’s “darling of New York society” who often “juxtaposed the fluid fashions” of the ‘70s “with structured tailored suits, exotic turbans and decadent jewelry.”


The show’s lead makeup artist, Talia Shobrook also channeled the icon in the creation of her look. She noted, “Bianca Jagger’s demeanor was cool, and she always looked fresh. Even when she wore something traditional, she made it very youthful.” In order to emulate a “youthful” look, Talia kept the look very fresh with lots of sheen. She created a modern take on a bitten lip and also modernized the ‘70s glossy lids.

Lips: Modern take on a bitten lip

·        In order to create the “bitten lips” look, Talia mixed Laura Mercier Crème Smooth Lip Colour in Palm Beach andMango, ($27).

·        Then, she applied the mixture to a Laura Mercier Pony Tail Brush, ($29), using the brush to press the colour into the middle of the lips, blending it outward.

Eyes: Modern version of the ‘70s glossy lids

·        Talia applied Laura Mercier Baked Eye Colour in Cameo, ($24) on the lid as a base.

·        To complete the look, she applied Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Radiance, ($33) on top of the eye shadow, and in the corners of the eyes to create a glowing, glossy lid.
