Beauty Highlight of London Fashion Week- Spring Summer 2013 Trends
So today was the first time to breath and take in NYFW and LFW beauty trends I have seen in the last two weeks! I have rounded up the trends from NYFW >here< So in today’s post I round up the biggest and best beauty looks from the shows.
Val Garland using MAC Cosmetics kept up this season’s overarching ’90s beauty trend using the brand’s Good Genes Serum as a delicious skin treat for the models. This was followed by a slick of their Effortless Tinted Primer and the Light Liquid Foundation after that. The result? Glowy, real skin which didn’t look like it was wearing any makeup at all. Genius! The Topshop Unique models were “the girl that other girls want to be.” Hannah Murray applied two different Topshop blushers in Prime Time and Flush across the eyelid for a super-cool grungy 90s beauty look that offered a pop of bright colour against the whites and yellows of the collection.
And we see beautiful Freckles for spring summer again –they popped up backstage at Kinder Aggugini where Val Garland created beautiful, rural, Holly Hobby-esque girls who had been out fishing. “We used 2-5 different brow pencils, lip pencils and shadows to draw on chaotic, random freckles,” she explained with MAC Cosmetics .
One of my favourite shows was The Holly Fulton show! The models looked fabulous with cute balls bouncing across their nails, and those stunning bright orange two-toned lips by Andrew Gallimore got me so excited and has made me want to buy more MAC pro lip mixes to experiment with, it was great to see Wendy Rowe at Burberry played the lips up using deep berry shades in Burberry beauty Lip Velvet in Siren Red.
Finally nails… At London Fashion week they were Nailing Nudes! – “I can honestly tell you that this season’s nude nail trend is the biggest one I have seen in fifteen years,” Marion Newman mentioned backstage at Moschino Cheap and Chic, where she blended MAC nail varnishes in Cream Delicate and Faint of Heart to match individual girl’s skin tones. “We’re aiming for seamless tips and toes,” she added.
Overall NYFW and LFW was again very inspiring for me and I have learnt so much in the last two weeks and I can’t wait to use these new techniques and trends into my own work. A huge thank you to Tumblr for making London Fashion week extra special for me!
