Virgin Atlantic crewmembers got a quintessentially British makeover for the brand’s 30thanniversary. In conjunction with the reveal of their new Vivienne Westwood-designed uniforms—which feature sharply tailored red skirt suits for the ladies and maroon 3-piece suits for the guys—the airline unveiled a fresh makeup look created by British beauty brand Illamasqua.

Now, the faces of Virgin Atlantic’s team will be done up with a soft smoky eye, natural blush, and most notably, a vibrant red lipstick that was created specially for Virgin Atlantic called “Virgin” ($26;
