We’ve come to expect a certain clean polished beauty look at Helmut Lang each season, but for spring Hannah Murray and the NARS team shock things up with a glossy red pout that added glamour into the mix. “This look is an elevated version of the typical Helmut Lang girl. The skin is very fresh, flushed and sporty, with a cherry lip,” Murray quipped backstage. The source of the enviable pout – a combo of NARS’ Het Loo and Golshan Satin Lip Pencils custom mixed by artists.  In addition to the statement lip, the look featured sleek, slicked back hair and a glittering Essie manicure.

Paul Hanlon’s team created slick hair with a combo of UNITE’s 7 Seconds Leave In Detangler  (applied to hair pre-blowout) and Session Whip which provided the slick hold without the heaviness of a gel. When asked about the hair, Hanlon pointed to the chic styles of the 90s  – think Gwyneth Paltrow circa 95 or Carolyn Bessette Kennedy. “I wanted the hair to have strong, clean lines to balance the baggier clothes”

Even the short haired models got in on the action, with a little help.

Cheeks got a hint of color via Golshan Satin Lip Pencil and Fire Down Below Lipstick mixed directly onto the skin.
