When it comes to breathtaking beauty looks, London Fashion Week always delivers. From skin adorned with flowers to the brightest and boldest lips in town, these are Savoir Flair’s top beauty moments straight from the London runways.
Back with a bang, Aquascutum returned for the first time since 2008 with lashes ruling its runway. Mascara was used to create subtle spider-like spikes for a cool and modern makeup look. The rest of the face was kept super simple, with just a touch of natural gloss on the lips.
With manicures matched to mouths at PPQ, it was all about complementing nails and lips with colors ranging from pastel purples to bright pinks.
With perm-like curls, burnt-red metallic eyeshadow, and brows to rival those of Brooke Shields, everything about the beauty look at Topshop Unique screamed 80s revival.
At J.W. Anderson, it was all about the perfect peachy pout and flushed cheeks, making for a gorgeously natural look that was created by NARS makeup artist Mark Carrasquillo. Color was dabbed lightly onto the lips, focusing on the center, and onto cheeks to create a fabulous flush that was both beautiful and believable.
Flower power reigned supreme on the Preen runway, where florals featured not only in the beautiful clothing but also on skin. Legendary makeup artist Val Garland used dried flowers that were pressed onto everything from lips and cheeks to necks and collarbones, making for the definitive spring look.
MAC’s ‘Retro Matte Liquid Lip Colors’ – from fluoro pink to bright orange and matte reds – were used to create the ultimate power pout at Mary Katrantzou, showing that sometimes all you need is a slick of lip love to create a bold beauty statement.
Braids? Check. Buns? Check. Ribbons? Check. The hair at Erdem was arguably the prettiest we saw on the LFW runways. Inspired by a perfectly preserved 17th century dress found in a shipwreck at the bottom of the Dutch sea, hairstylist Anthony Turner sought to create a look that felt both historical and slightly nautical. The result? A gorgeously romantic braided bun with just a hint of wetness that made it look like the models had just stepped off a boat.
With flawless faces, sublime skin, and effortlessly slicked-back hair, the look at David Koma was all about “less is more”. Only a hint of blush, unkempt eyebrows, and a subtle pink lip were needed to make for one of the most natural looks we’ve seen at the SS17 shows so far.
Inspired by Broadway actress and samba singer Carmen Miranda, the Charlotte Olympia show took us back to a time of cabaret shows, burlesque beauties, and decadent glamour. Models rocked big, bouncy waves and red lipstick for a look that exuded old-school vibes.
