Glowing skin and fairy floss hair defined the ‘Scandinavian Mermaid’ beauty look worn by the models last week at our Spring Summer Fashion Launch. Napoleon Perdis provided the perfect clean complexion, lightly sunkissed with coral tones while the Kevin Murphy team created the incredible array of candy coloured quiffs.
We went backstage with Napoleon Perdis to hear more about the beautiful makeup look he created for us and also to find out how we can recreate the look at home!
Get the Look:
As the man himself says, ‘Not to Prime is a crime’, so of course you need to prep your skin with Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Pre Foundation Skin Primer. This will ensure your skin is hydrated and ready to hold your make up all day long.
Stroke of Genius Liquid Cashmere foundation is what you’ll need next. Apply with a foundation brush for a smooth and even finish that won’t budge.
For the eyes, you’ll need Loose Eye Dust in Honey Child, and this simply needs to be lightly tapped on with your fingertips or an eye brush if you have one.
Finally, to finish off your look, De Vine Goddess Lipstick in Atalanta, for a natural lightly tinted dash of colour on the lips and voila, you’re now you’re own Scandinavian Mermaid.

It’s all about the Hair…
The amazing Kevin Murphy is the man behind the incredible hair design for our models and took influence from the classic women’s styles of 30s and 40s. The natural fluid shapes of the up do reference ocean waves, and when combined with the soft coral makeup look from Napoleon Perdis, really brought our Scandinavian Mermaid look to life.
In keeping with one of this season’s hottest trends, the Kevin Murphy team used their Colour.Bug product to create perfectly pastel hair in a range of beautiful shades including lilac, fairy floss pink, powder blue and minted green.
After styling the hair up, White.bug was liberally sprayed all over the hair, creating a clean base ready for the Colour.Bug application which provided the allover pastel colour.
Shimmer.Shine was then used to add the final flourish, leaving the hair glistening and runway ready.
