London Fashion Week Beauty
Red Lip/Dark Lip
Lips were a focus at some shows. Antonio Berardi and Felder Felder opted for red lipstick. At Antonio Berardi show the lips were glossy and shiny, paired with white eyeliner while at Felder Felder lips were matte and coordinated with cheek color.
Moschino opted for a radical black lip color for the show of their Cheap & Chic line while at Fyodor Golan makeup artists created an ombre lip look using red and dark red lip products,
This basic beauty product was used differently backstage at Temperley London show and at PPQ. At the former the models sported a perfect and sophisticated upper lid line while at the latter the liner was used to outline the entire eye including the waterline.
At Louise Gray black eyeliner was used in an interesting way. It was applied in criss cross strokes under the eye creating a dramatic ‘smudged eyeliner’ look. At Julien Macdonald the liner was applied in messy strokes to the upper lid.
Speaking of dramatic eye makeup, Jean Piere Braganza demonstrated a gray metalic smokey eye enhanced with the white eyeliner on the waterline while Aminaka Wilmont showed an interesting take on a classic makeup by applying products only to the inner and outer corners of eyes leaving the middle clean and adding dark rhinestones to the inner corners.
The pale ghostly look was spotted at John Rocha and Giles shows. The first used pink eyeshadow to create the look while the second opted for gray purple with a bit of illiminating shine to it. At both shows the shadows were applied almost or exactly up to the brows and well around the eyes. The looks were finished with pale lipsticks.
Brown neutral eyeshadow was a big hit at London Fashion Week. Whether the designers strived to achieve a natural look or a subtle but visible makeup, brown eyeshadow in different shades was very much preferred.
At Issa and Erdem soft brights were accentuating the eyes. Think purple shades applied sparsely around or to the upper eyelid.
Metallics or rather glitter were spotted at House of Holland, applied generously to the inner corners of the eyes and at David Koma, who chose dark glittery eyeliner. L’Wren Scott chose to complement her fashion collection with golden eyeshadow while Clement Riberiro opted for bronze.
