Thanks to the frantic pace of the digital age, the average person has the attention span of a goldfish. (No, seriously. This is a fact supported by an actual study.) Seeing as the fashion sphere changes its mind even faster, we decided to provide you with a condensed report from backstage this season. As much as we'd like to pen novels in the name of lipstick and hairspray, we get it—you're busy. Here, the beauty version of CliffsNotes (all facts, no fluff) that you can easily skim in eight seconds...because science says that's all the time you have.

SHOW: Christopher Kane

CITY: London

KEY PLAYERS: Makeup artist Lucia Pieroni, Hairstylist Guido Palau, Manicurist Marian Newman

THE LOOK: “A masculine approach to pared down beauty,” said Pieroni.

INSPO: “I love the idea of the female factory worker,” said Kane in his show notes, adding that he “wanted to express a tougher femininity this season.”

BEAUTY MVPs: NARS Brow Perfector, NARS Brow Defining Cream, and NARS Matte Eyeshadow in Bali, Blondie, and Coconut Grove, Redken Control Addict 28 Hairspray 

TOP TIPS: Bold brows don’t require much else—Pieroni added just a hint of highlighter to cheekbones and lids.

To create a sleek swoosh, make a messy part, rake strands over to one side, and set the top section with hairspray to lock the shape and finger-grooves in place.

WORDS FROM THE WISE: Make the most of what you’ve got before firing up your flat iron. “A lot of women are afraid of their own natural texture, so a great way to tame it is to allow hair to dry naturally first then add a bit of wave or control by using a hot tool or your fingers,” said Palau.

TREND TALLY: Deep side parts were spotted at Jason Wu, Thom Browne, and J.W. Anderson.

“They’re super expensive, but that’s okay,” said Kane of his mink-lined Crocs.
