Get Inspired with New Beauty Trends from London Fashion Week
As with all things English, the beauty looks at London Fashion Week was mix of classic style and daring innovation. Models were seen sporting beautiful bronzed tones at the English institution Burberry and precious peach cheeks at the talented Christopher Kane’s show. Several brands took inspiration from the 1950s and gave their girls light-blue eyeshadow while elsewhere lips got stained.
Matte lips and waxy skin
Perfect for spring garden parties or summer rooftop festivities, this look packs a punch. One of the easiest to recreate, simply use a full coverage foundation, a lot of luminiser and a swipe of matte lipstick. For a compelling but not over-the-top look, wear bold lips and waxy skin with textured hair or a tight pony.
Burberry, Matthew Williamson and Roksanda Ilincic all told us to forget the fake tan and instead pull out the bronzer. Work your bronzer across the cheeks and if you feel like you need a little more sun, dust some over the bridge of the nose and temples.
New York was all about orange blush while London presented a fresh, fun take. Pretty, peachy cheeks adorned the girls at Christopher Kane, Issa London and Jaeger London. Wear high on the cheekbones for a flattering pop of colour.
For girls on the go give stained lips a try. One bold application of Benefit’s top-seller Benetint in the morning and you’re set for the rest of the day. Use the brush applicator or a cotton tip for a precise pout.
Blue eyeshadow is back. At Louise Gray models sported a blue cat eye, at Pringle of Scotland models had blue in the contours of the eyes, and at Michael van der Ham the shadow was worked into the inners of the eyes. Light blue eyeshadow works best when there isn’t too much other colour on the face, so we recommend a light sweeping of shadow over the lids and paired with a pretty gloss.
