London Fashion week has flown by and with the stylish crowds now heading back to their hometowns, we take a look at what make up has made an appearance on the catwalk for the latest spring summer 2014 collections.
Over the last few years, the way we apply our foundation has come a long with. With the introduction of tinted moisturisers, BB and CC creams it’s no surprise that this year our complexions went from matte to dewy.
Paul Smith, Antipodium, Bernard Shandoran & Markus Lupfer all featured their models with fresh complexions that were clean and natural looking. To create this look a BB or CC cream is the perfect place to start. Our range of BB creams and CC creams provide you with the coverage for blemishes and red pigments as well as leaving you with a fresh finish that doesn’t sit heavy on your skin.
If this look gives your complexion too much sheen for your liking, then the best solution is a sweep of powder. Treat this more like a veil than you would like a normal powder, lightly apply the powder onto the areas you feel are most shiny but leave the rest as this will keep your skin still looking fresh and dewy. Find our range of face powders with a mix of finished for you to enjoy.
Eye make up from this year’s London Fashion Week varied from show to show, however a majority of the designers opted for keeping their beauty looks simple and natural. This was most evident during the Orla Kiely presentation, with a girl scout theme, the make up was kept youthful, fresh and bright. Brown eyeliner was used to define the eyes with a softer finish, with chocolate hues that complimented the models skin tones beautifully.
For the spring summer 2014 collections showcased at this year’s London Fashion Week, the lip beauty varied from being strong and bold to subtle and elegant.
During the Orla Kiely, Cristina Sabaiduc and Paul Smith shows, the models lips were left with a very natural tone. Using rosy pinks, peaches and subtle tangerines to invite fresh colour onto the skin without taking away from the designs too much.

On the other hand, designers like Ping He and Bernard Shandoran brought out the lips with bold colours that really made a statement against their collection. Ping He doused the models lips with an intense black glitter lip. Finished with a white line from the bow of the top lip to the bottom lip. To recreate this look you just need to switch to a more conventional shade, perfect for the Christmas season, add glitter to a red, pink or plum lip to really add trend setting glamour to your look.
Bernard Shandoran channeled a much more classic feel with his make up, taking an intense red to really stand out against the gold hues he ran throughout his collection.

Throughout London Fashion Week, one thing remained clear, naturally thick eyebrows were in. Models kept tamed, thick brows that were structured to their facial structures perfectly. No matter what was going on with the rest of the make up, the eyebrows remained natural and full.
