Top beauty trends of London Fashion Week and how to get them right

It is raining fashion weeks this season! The London Fashion Week just ended leaving behind it’s trail of beauty and makeup trends. This year was a fine blend of taking inspiration from the past as well as looking into the future. Here, we let you in on the top ones and also give tips on how you can achieve them at home.

High impact cat-eye

(As seen in the 4th and 5th pic)

The trend:

The Burberry collection took us by surprise when the taupe brown high impact cat eye was introduced on the show by the artist Pat McGrath. Instead of a black or coloured cat eye, McGrath opted for this look.

How to achieve it:

  • Step 1: Take a taupe brown eyeliner (preferably a gel liner) and create a sharp winged cat-eye on the upper eyelids that extends a little longer than the end of your eyebrows.
  • Step 2: Take the same eyeliner and smudge it softly on the lower lash-line to create a softer look.
  • Step 3: If you wish, add some mascara to lengthen and add volume to your lashes.
  • Step 4: Contour your face.
  • Step 5: Add subtle blush.
  • Step 6: Opt for nude lips.

This look is so easy to achieve and looks stunning!

Bare lips

The trend:

The nude lips trend continues to be followed on the runways. While the bold lipsticks still make a statement, bare nude ones were seen on most of the models at the London Fashion Week this year.

How to achieve it:

  • Step 1: To achieve this look, contour your face to enhance your features.
  • Step 2: Add some mascara to your eyes.
  • Step 3: Keep your brows bold, yet natural so they don’t look made up.
  • Step 4: You can add a hint of brown eyeshadow on your lower lash line and smudge it out a bit.
  • Step 5: Wear a nude lipstick, the shade that closely matches the colour of your lips.

Pink blush

The trend:

The pink blush added an appealing softness to the makeup. While the coral cheeks were on trend last year, this time it was all about going pink and adding some colour.

How to achieve this look:

  • Step 1: To recreate this look, apply bright orange eyeshadow on your lids.
  • Step 2: Apply the same color on the lower lash line as well.
  • Step 3: Now take a bright pink blush and apply on the ends of your cheeks, merging it with the orange eyeshadow.
  • Step 4: Create an ombre effect with a lesser intensity on the apples of your cheeks and gradually increasing as you move towards your temples.

This is a very bold look, but if carried properly, it can ace up your makeup game!

60s disco eyes

The trend:

The theatrical look was seen on the runways by pairing a thick bold black eyeliner with glittery eyelids. This trend is setting major makeup goals this season.

How to achieve the look:

  • Step 1: For achieving this look, apply some eyelash glue all over your eyelids.
  • Step 2: Now, with a flat eyeshadow brush, apply some gold glitter particles on your eyelids.
  • Step 3: Once this dries down, take a jet-black eyeliner and trace the outline of the eyeshadow. Do not trace the upper lash line though.
  • Step 4: Add some mascara to add more drama to your eyes.
  • Step 5: Keep the rest of the makeup very neutral as your eyes make the statement you need.

Neon pink lips

The trend:

Rose coloured lips were a trend last season, so this time the game was amped up a bit with neon pink lips matching same coloured eyeliner. As seen at the at Chalayan show, the pink eyeliner look was inspired from the 80s.

How to achieve this look:

  • Step 1: To get this look, line your upper lash line with a neon pink eyeliner.
  • Step 2: Apply same coloured lipstick (preferably matte) and add some mascara to your lashes.
  • Step 3: Keep the rest of your face bare and with minimal makeup.

Glowing skin

The trend:

Korean beauty has certainly hit UK as clear, dewy and glowing skin was the focus for most of the shows this season. It was all about prepping the skin perfectly by using illuminating balms and moisturisers instead of heavy foundations and concealers. This is almost a no-makeup makeup look since the skin looks so dewy and fresh.

How to achieve it:

  • Step 1: For recreating this look, make sure you prep your skin correctly by applying a luminous or illuminating moisturizer.
  • Step 2: Put on as little makeup as possible.
  • Step 3: You can conceal and correct any imperfections and apply a cream-based highlighter if the moisturiser hasn’t provided enough glow.
  • Step 4: Wear a nude lipstick and you’re good to go!

These were some of the makeup looks that were seen on the runway of the London Fashion Week. Recreate them in your own way and make all the heads turn!
