Story concept by Jo Strettell

As the season evolves from an unseasonably chilly and grey early spring to the current delirium of flowers and thickening green, we invited an extraordinary earth girl, 18-year-old director /actor Logan Polish, and her aunt, legendary make-up artist Jo Strettell, to make a flower play of beauty theater for us. 
In a nod to Polish’s beautifully shot directorial debut film “Margot”—a sci-fi movie set to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival this year—Strettell pollen painted and petal tattooed, weaving delicate branches of deep pink micro-blossoms into crowns and ferns into regal shrugs. That Polish is young and beautiful and smart and an utterly unselfconscious force of nature, places her here as a young Titania on our impromptu stage. This is an entirely self-possessed young woman, at ease as a performer and happily enjoying the playscape of our spring fever dream. Why can’t we play more?
We want to run in fields of flowers and wear petal paint and soak up the beauty and primal wildness of spring. Want to come?

Jo’s instructions for getting Logan’s look:

Even out the skin tones using the light foundation 'Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint’ for More skin, less makeup.

Using a ‘Glossier Color Slide Pencil in Critical Mass’ draw a line in the eye crease and with a soft eye brush sweep ‘Lancôme’ eye, cheek and lip shadow 'Le Monochromatique in Haute Couture' across the eye lid to the brows and around under the eyes and blend to a soft shadow and then add to the lips.

Curl lashes and apply lashings of ‘L’Oreal’s Voluminous Mascara’ to create spidery lashes.

Brush and shape the brows with ‘Glossier Boy Brow’.

Using a large blush brush apply the pink glow ‘Charlotte Tilbury’s Glowing, Pretty Skin Palette’ to the apple of the cheeks.

To finish the look apply ‘Dior’s Lip Glow in sheer berry’ over the ‘Lancôme Le Monochromatique' eyes, cheek lips shadow.
