"Colourful, bold and exciting make-up - that's what Topshop's all about," said Topshop make-up artist Hannah Murray of the brilliantly blue "elongated almond" eyes she created backstage at the Topshop Unique show today (seen in the exclusive video below, featuring Jourdan Dunn, Rosie Tapner and Cara Delevingne). "It's a bit Brit pop, a bit Eighties, a bit New Wave with an urban edge. We've done a green base with a pale blue eye shadow pressed on top, so it's as bold as possible. And the skin is very fresh. The whole look should be as if the girls have done it themselves - nothing too 'done' - and very British." Models' nails were painted in Topshop's bold red Lacquered shade.


Meanwhile, Anthony Turner created "rock 'n' roll" hair with a Seventies influence and a nod to Kate Moss. "There's always the Kate Moss reference but I don't mind it because it works - it's a bit rebellious, it's British and effortlessly cool," he said, generously applying L'Oreal Professionnel Tecni Art Full Volume Extra Mousse to the hair. "We wanted the girl to feel accessible."
