Vodaphone London Fashion week 2015 is well underway so we are taking a peek at the makeup looks hitting the runway and giving tips on how you can recreate them. The annual celebration for fashion lovers is always a great insight into the up and coming makeup trends for Spring, which is just around the corner, and here we have you covered to keep you up to date with all the trends.
A bright berry lip is the perfect Spring accessory, as seen on the runways all throughout London Fashion Week. Typically reserved for the cooler weather, brands have gone against the status quo and paired their Spring designs with cherry shades. You can go bold with a striking matte berry or with an eye catching glossy shade such as the one used for Antonio Beradi (above – middle image). If you aren’t daring enough to give this one a go then you can just lightly apply a dab of berry lipstick for a much more subtle look, similar to the one Bora Aksu used in their show (above- right image).
For a true berry colour MAC “Brick-O-La” is a great option, for something with a pink undertone, MAC “Girl About Town” is the way to go. In the drugstore, Maybelline “Berry Brilliant” or Rimmel “Berry Rose” are affordable alternatives.
Dewy Skin and Pops of colour
Dewy skin has made quite a regular appearance on the runway so far and seems to be the foundation finish of choice this year. So many designers gave their models a glossy and natural shine but at the same time ensuring they didn’t look oily. This kind of finish can be achieved with a foundation such as NARS Sheer Glow and a stippling brush.
Pops of colour were found all over the runway, from cobalt blue to fluorescent pink and everything in between. Whether it was applied on the top lash line, in the form of mascara or underneath the bottom waterline, each look was different from the next but encompassed the same concept of an eye catching pop of colour.
MAC and NARS are brands to check out for such unique and fun colours since they have a massive range aimed towards makeup artists who deal with editorial looks on the daily. Otherwise drugstore brands such as Rimmel and Maybelline have a selection of colourful quads.
Often times keeping within the dewy skin trend, makeup was quite natural. With barely there brows, no lid colours and very subtle mascara. The contouring and light shading stole the shows with that being the main focus of the makeup look. This is definitely a trend you can incorporate into your everyday makeup as it is wearable and appropriate for most occasions. If you enjoy bold makeup, you can still take inspiration from this by keeping your eyes natural but combining it with a bright lip.
Smokey Eye Makeup
Models sported the classic smoky eye in a variety of ways including a thin smoky wing as seen in the Alien show to a thick bold cat eye used as an element by Jean Pierre Braganza. Marchesa (middle image above) went for a much more subtle black liner to enhance the girls eyes without making too much of a statement.
With the popular looks ranging between natural makeup to crazy colours, there are a lot of makeup trends coming out of London Fashion Week 2015. This allows for personal creativity to take over where you can mix and match some of these such as a berry lip with smoky eye makeup or natural brows and lips with a hint of colour on the eyes.
