If there’s one place you can guarantee a designer’s look will extend all the way to their face, it’s London Fashion Week.
Whether it’s Vivienne Westwood smudging rainbow colours across their cheeks or Erdem allowing them to remain romantically natural, here the models don’t just wear a look, they work it.
And so, it’s only fair that we dedicate a little attention to best beauty looks we spied at London’s spring 2012 shows.
Below, behold the 10 beauty looks we loved from London Fashion Week – and hey, why wait ’til next spring to try ‘em? We can’t wait to give these a go now.
Rose-bitten lips at Erdem
Why: Who could resist this undone, romantic look?
Wine-stained lips at Giles
Why: Similar to Erdem’s but a little naughtier, we love the one-glass-too-many look (not least because we can guzzle a glass of wine without guilt).
Elfin au naturale at Christopher Kane
Why: Plain has never looked so pretty.
Modern Forties smokiness at Marios Schwab
Why: A cool update on the always-favourite smoky eye.
Bright popping lips at Mary Katrantzou
Why: Modern, fresh and simple – we’re loving Katrantzou’s popping pink and orange lips. We’re quite fond of the blue, too (even if they do look a little frozen).
Colour craziness at Vivienne Westwood
Why: Ok, so we might not actually try this one, but how fun does it look?
Candy-floss streaks in Sixties bouffants at Mulberry
Why: Volumised Sixties ‘dos are updated with candy-coloured streaks in pale pink, lemon and blue.
Glitter-smudged eyes and dark berry lips at Ashish
Why: The perfect disco eyes? We think so! The Nineties dark lips are a great way to make party makeup look cool, too.
Strong metallic eyes and muted lips at Todd Lynn
Why: Fresh and futuristic. We love the blue, but the bronze is totally wearable.
Dip-dyed pink hair at PPQ
Why: This will make singing Cyndi Lauper all the more worthwhile.[Images: Style.com; Cosmopolitan UK; Glam]
