As LFW comes to an end we take a look at which designers SLAYED the beauty game at this years event. Here are some beauty trends that have been shaking up fashion week …
- Sleek and Shiny Pins!
We think Julien Macdonald may have started a revolution ladies! It wont be long now before we cant go on a night out without sunglasses to shield our eyes from the crazy glow. Juien’s show saw a host of sexy sirens strutting down the catwalk and honestly…we’ve never seen so many good legs all at once! Mac’s strobe cream is perfect for highlighting the shin bone, mix with a gold loose pigment for the bronziest shine around.
- Middle Partings Are In (Were They Ever Even Out?)
The Spring/Summer’17 shows have seen a very clear theme with almost every designer opting for a middle part on their models. However this year we see much more emphasize on a flatter part, definitely less volume for the majority or loose hair looks, with baby hair making a very apparent come back with wispy areas being used to show of models face shapes. You only have to check out brands such as Peter Pilotto to confirm this. For updo’s the middle parting same a more slick and powerful comeback, with hair stuck down tight and wrapped back into a low bun for a harsh and stand out look. Seen in the likes of the fabulous Versus Versace show where lines were bridged between biker and goth cultures.
- The Shinge is Here To Stay.
Forget the Gringe, the Shinge is here now, with models from almost every show from Henry Hollands presentation of his ‘House Of Holland’ collection to Topshop’s Unique show. A Shinge or Baby Bangs if you didn’t know is a short full fringe, purposely cut to the centre of the forehead and chopped rather messily to give an effortless and laid back feel that nods to the 90’s. Baby Bangs aren’t for everyone and often are used to create a high fashion look for a show, however some people can really work baby bangs so if you’re feeling daring pop down to your local hair dresser and ask their opinion.
- Hangover Make Up Look
Call us crazy, but looking like you’ve just woken up from a night out is the new in thing! Honestly, every designer from Christopher Kane to Erdem we’re churning out models with a gloriously bare skinned glow and eyes surrounded by the lightest of brown and black smudging giving the effect of morning eyes that actually seemed to work. It’s such a simple trick when your running late, apply a thin base of tinted moisturizer or Mac face and body; then apply shadow to a brush and rub of onto a tissue, use the remaining shadow on the brush to roughly apply this around the eyes for a mysterious sexy look.
- Crop is on Top.
Cropped hair styles are definitely making a big come back, with a selection of models in shows such as Versace through to Pa5h featuring models with shaven heads, now is the time to embrace the face and let your features do all the talking. If shaving your hair isn’t something you want to jump straight into, how about trying a pixie crop which was also a massive trend at fashion week with some designers opting for pixie crops with a slicked side parting that made us crush over the amazing flapper style look.
