Max Factor for Watson X Watson – MBFWA 2012

2012_MAFW_Watson_X_Watson finished look gold cross

The inspiration for the Watson X Watson was creating a Whimsical Festival look. This was translated by Liz Kelsh into a dewy, natural look with pops of neon and metallic, and lots of emphasis on the lashes.

“For this show it was important that I created a look that was individual to each girl. The Watson X Watson brand is all about having a unique look and owning it. Coincidently when l was in Europe recently I discovered a new Max Factor double ended lipstick that was specially designed by Pat McGrath in the UK. Straight away I knew we had to have it for the Watson X Watson show. Using the new lipstick enabled me to create a individualised look for each girl using different mixed shades on their lips, eyes and cheeks.” – Liz Kelsh for Max Factor.
