Much like the optimism that defined New York’s catwalks, London’s Spring Summer 2018 shows celebrated joy with sparkling lips, metallic shadows, re-imagined ponytails and perfected skin. From Ashley Williams to Simon Rocha and Topshop Unique, here’s our edit of top beauty picks from London Fashion Week- to help put some playfulness back into your daily beauty looks.
It is by no surprise that one of the top trends would involve sparkles; and at Hannah Weiland’s Shrimps presentation she proved that lips full of glittery gems are not just for the runway.
Reminiscing over the late ’80s and early ’90s, Topshop Unique represents today’s effortless cool girl trend. With a very DIY approach, models backstage were allowed to choose two colours to create the right smudgy glitter eye look to go with their casual side-parted waves.
Charlotte Tilbury gets bolder and edgier at Versus Versace with winged eyeliner and nude lips, complimented by the model’s natural textured curls.
While makeup at Ashley Williams was kept minimal, hairy stylist Soichi Inagakie gave the models gritty textured hair, accessorized with hair-clips that read “GIRLS”, “BOYS”, “HATE” and “LOVE”.
Inspired by old-romance, makeup artist Sam Bryant created a flushed cheeks and lightly tinted pink lips for a doll-like look at Simone Rocha. Hair was adorned with stacked pearl-embellished clips.
At Roksanda, hair was blow-dried in soft waves with perfected skin and berry or pink satin lips.
Erdem takes on the classic ’50s with re-imagined curl-side ponytail hairstyle and old Hollywood winged bold eyeliner.
