All in the detail: The LFW Beauty Trends
Vivienne Westwood Red Label, Temperley London and Topshop Unique
British designers are far from conservative in fashion, offering a more relaxed approach when it comes to tradition. Make-up artists similarly adopt this freedom-loving style, serving up bold colours and experimental looks at London Fashion Week.
Vivienne Westwood Red Label
At the Vivienne Westwood Red Label show, hair and make-up reinterpreted the iconic image of Marilyn Monroe, with an assortment of chic and elegant styles. Val Garland worked alongside the MAC team creating looks with a touch of punk style. Curls were neatly pulled back, lipstick was smeared with red hues (Garland used a colour contour to feather the lips), with the same hue making its way to cheeks too.
Alice Temperley's ethereal Autumn/Winter 14 fashion collection that featured pastels, floral prints and romantic styles, was enhanced with suitably dreamy beauty looks. The overall look was natural, with a main focus on eyes that were accentuated with sky blue shades. Hair nodded to an Alice in Wonderland vibe, with a variety of braided styles.
"Good girls gone bad" was the brief description offered by makeup artist Hannah Murray, who made black eyeliner the star beauty character of the Topshop Unique show. Mascara was applied to upper lashes in a way that made them stick together and offer a wet appearance. The rest of the look was natural, with cheeks coloured in a subtle pink hue.
