BOLD AND SIMPLE BEAUTY LOOKS AT LONDON FASHION WEEK

Be inspired by some of the best beauty looks from London Fashion Week AW14 and learn how to recreate them at home.

Effortless and simple minimalism was one of the biggest trends, with flawless skin, and natural, almost invisible, makeup. But there are also bolder trends; playful versions of classics like the smoky eye and the red lip. The hair was simple and side parted, with either a glossy or an unpolished, dishevelled finish.

 

1 Daks showed a simple yet elegant minimalistic look with glossy hair and natural makeup. Apply moisturizing foundation and define your cheekbones with bronzer and highlighter. Line your lower waterline with white eyeliner to create a more awake look (perfect on a Monday morning!) and finish with mascara and pink lipgloss. Tuck your hair behind the ears with kirby grips and finish with serum and hairspray.

2 Instead of black, House of Holland used green or blue metallic eyeshadows to create a new take – and a bold party look – on the smoky eye. Use a metallic eyeshadow and focus on the outer and inner corner of the eye. Complete the look with black eyeliner and mascara.

 

3 There’s no AW without the red lip. Matthew Williamson was the winner with a glossy, berry burgundy lip. Together with a bright, bronze eye and a sleek ponytail, this is the perfect look for a glamorous date night. Recreate the look with burgundy lipstick and transparent gloss. Apply a bronze eyeshadow, and frame the eyes with a black, kohl liner. Straighten your hair (don’t forget heat protection!), put it into a low ponytail, and get a glossy finish with serum.
