The look was terracotta red lips – a new Topshop shade called ‘Crazy, Beautiful’ that will be released in March – dewy (slightly sweaty) skin and clumpy mascara, because according to Lynsey Alexander, ?if there’s anything a British girl has in her make-up bag, it’s mascara.”

Hair stylist Duffy created a look inspired by “those early pictures of Kate Moss or early Versace campaigns with Amber Valletta and that shoulder-length bob, it’s stripped back and sleek.? Like hair you had when you were a teenager. According to Duffy, “there’s an innocence to the straight, blunt cut.??Shop the full Topshop Unique February 2017 collection now.?
