After sweeping through New York, Fashion Week arrived in London with a bang! Here’s a roundup of some of our favourite glamorous makeup and hair looks direct from the catwalk.
The beauty look at Grace was all about glamour! Artist Lisa Eldridge created luminous looking skin as the canvas for a bright pop of matte red lips using MAC Ruby Woo and delicate lashes. She used delicate corner lashes from Eyeko’s brand new Lash Wardrobe with a sweep of Eyeko Black Magic mascara and defined brows with the brand’s new Brow Liner pen. Nails matched the scarlet red lips using MAC’s Rougemarie shade for an extra hint of seductive glamour. Finally, hair was styled by Eugene Souleiman who created an “expensive looking, clean and sophisticated” plait with precise middle partings. He envisaged the look as being “the way a real girl could style her hair”.
Glamour was again incorporated into the makeup by Artist Lisa Eldridge at Matthew Williamson. Eldridge created a merlot coloured glossy lip using Benefit Cosmetics Bella Bamba gloss, defined eyes with black liner on the the lower lids and tinted cheeks with a sweep of peach blush in Bella Bamaba and Hervana shades. Hair, styled by Toni&Guy, was pulled into a precise smooth ponytail that aimed to be both “super cool and super chic”.
Beautiful glossy waves and purple lids were the utmost definition of glamour at the Lucas Nascimento runway! Hair was swept to the side, across one eye and layered up with extensions to give it extra luscious thickness. The makeup, by Janeen Witherspoon, was interesting and unique as a “modern take on a 1970s woman”. Taking inspiration from 1970s drag racing car stripes, she created disconnected stripes on the eye with maroon winged liner and purple lids.
The look over at Sophia Webster was fairytale glamour with a retro, screen siren feel. Hair was pulled into braids, with a braid sweeping across the forehead and flowing past shoulders in ‘pigtails’. Lynsey Alexander, for Revlon, applied makeup aiming to emulate an “ultra polished 90’s Hollywood girl”. Cheeks were dusted with pink blush good enough “to make the boys wink” and paired with a matte lip and glossy baby pink eyes.
Dolce & Gabbana
Romance was everywhere on the Dolce&Gabbana runway with classic soft makeup and hair. Artist, Pat McGrath, created velvety skin using D&G Luminous liquid foundation and a nude blush. Eyes were defined elegantly with a flick of winged black liner drawn along the upper lash line and black mascara. The pretty, simple makeup was complemented with soft braided chignons and loose tendrils of hair at the front, styled by Guido Palau.
