No London Fashion Week would be complete without a full on smokey eye, fake freckles or spray on sweat. “Sorry, what?” I hear you cry.
Yes dear readers, well-known make-up artist Andrew Gallimore did create Spray on sweat. You heard me right the first time.
LFW is once again over, leaving our capital in a frenzy, after a whirlwind romance with Spring Summer 2015. But, before we don our leather skirts and crisp white shirts ready for Autumn, let’s take a look at the make-up trends we witnessed emerge down the London catwalk.
Let’s start with a pop of colour–
At Holly Fulton, MAC artist Gallimore continued the ombre trend, this time with eyeliner. Keeping models base and lip make-up muted and simple, he simply lined the waterline with a bright blue liner from the outer corner, blending into white liner in the inner. A simple, yet very effective look. Definitely one to spot gracing the magazines in the coming months.
We had more colour at Matthew Williamson, where UK giants Charlotte Tilbury and Lisa Eldridge created beautiful lilac hued eyes, with a dewy base. Yet again, Williamson was inspired by the 1970’s for his SS15 collection, this time in the form of model Marie Helven.
Colour is expected at Spring Summer shows, but what I didn’t expect to see was burgundy lips, flicks of liner and dark, sultry eyes. Yet, we got all three!
At David Koma, Sharon Dowsett designed a double flicked eye, with one flick from the top lash line and another from the bottom, complete with naturally flawless skin and bare lashes. Whilst at Tom Ford, Charlotte Tilbury upped the rock and rock sex appeal, with matte nude lips and full on, dark sparkly smokey eyes. A look many of us with no doubt emulate before Autumn is over.
Now, over to the down right weird.
Fancy some spray on freckles? Beauty genius’ Val Garland and St Tropez’s Nichola Joss created this unique look at Preen using eyeliner pencils and a unique ‘spraying’ technique with St Tropez tan and an art brush. Think it’ll catch on? My bet is, probably not.
