The world of fashion is constantly on the move and what was in last season is all but forgotten the moment the models walk off the catwalk and all eyes turn to the next big event in the fashion world calendar. London Fashion Week is a firm favourite of fashion fans around the world and it is all too common to see our timelines, inboxes and feeds filled with gorgeous snaps of the new trends each season. Now that London Fashion Week has come to a close, let us take a look at some of the top beauty trends that you can try now that the season has come and gone.
Glamorous Hair Styles
Whether on the front row or on the catwalk, one look that has been big this season is bold and glamorous hair. From Shay Mitchell’s beautifully swept up do, to Adowa Aboah’s statement headband plait, this look screams ‘high fashion’. With plenty of texture and bold accessories, this look is easy to recreate at home.
-Start by prepping your hair with volumising mousse or a dry texturising spray
-Section off the hair and begin to curl using a curling wand or tongs on small sections of hair
-Once the whole head is curled, brush out each curl to create a relaxed wave
-Use small clips or bobby pins to pin back small areas of hair to add texture and volume
-Add statement accessories (headbands, slide on hair clips or jewellery) to complete the look
Glitter: Full Face or Nothing
Glitter was a strong look featured on the catwalk this season and across the celebrity front rows. The look ranged from small sparkle on the lids for a subtle glam to a full face of glitter. A tip for those looking to recreate this look is to first think about the full face. If you’re going to go full faith, ensure that you stick with one colour palette, whether this is just silver, gold and copper tones, or a range of blues and purples.
-For best results, use cream or liquid glitter bases
-Using a brush or your fingers, blend the product onto your lids, nose, chin and cheeks
-Add a layer of your chosen glitter shade, using an adhesive or brush the glitter onto the liquid base
-Finish the look with a clear setting spray and statement lip
This season’s catwalks had not just groomed brows and lids but the most gorgeous of pouts. What better way to show off those bold lip colours than with healthy and luscious lips. To recreate the look of catwalk lips at home, you should use a number of different products to ensure hydration, smoothness and to ensure that the colour looks its most vibrant.
-Begin by applying a deep moisturising balm to the lips
-Gently exfoliate the lips with a lip scrub
-Layer up your desired lip colour, this can be one hue or a combination of colours paired together
-Ensure the colour stays all day by applying a touch of lip gloss
Glowy Bronzed Skin
The Glow was certainly one of the main beauty trends featured on the catwalk. To recreate the look of lit from within skin, there are a few steps that you can take to ensure that your makeup looks bronzed and radiant. The key to this look is to ensure that the skin looks natural and effortless, with a subtle glowing sheen.
-Prep the skin with a hydrating serum and gentle moisturiser
-Lightly apply a foundation or tinted moisturiser, ensuring that the coverage is light
-Apply a touch of highlighter to the high points of the face (browbones, bridge of the nose, cheekbones, cupids bow and chin)
-Choose a bronzer for your skin type; matte for oily skin, dewy for dry skin
-Using a fluffy face brush, sweep the bronzer onto the face, including along the jawline and up the temples of the face
-Set the look using a setting powder on the T-Zone
-Finish the look by misting a setting spray over the face
These are just a few of the key beauty trends that dominated catwalks and front rows this season, and you can use these steps to help you bring these trends into your everyday beauty routine. London Fashion Week has a wealth of inspiration, enjoy experimenting and having fun with these looks.
