Some of our favourite make up trends spotted at LFW ….

This week has been quite a buzz with the British fash-pack out in full force!

Twitter was rife with twitpics and tweets from all the top stylist and fashion bloggers, cataloguing their favourite looks – seen on the London catwalks.

With too many favourites to choose from, feeling rather spoilt for choice we finally managed to carefully select some impressive and inspirational make up trends that both excited and delighted our beauty team.

Feast your eye’s and enjoy!


Hello blue eyes!

Sky blue at Antipodium

Antipodium’s urban-influenced AW12  show at London Fashion week featured pretty blue eye makeup inspired by Springfield’s sunny setting.

The make up – created by M.A.C’s Georgina Graham and her team complimented the collection superbly, clocking the ensembles as they came out onto the catwalk in a delish colour palette of beautiful sky blue and biscuit, with accents of mustard and bottle green – I admit -tingly wanted it all in my wardrobe immediately.

A chocoholic…? Me?

Burberry’s AW12 “town and country” inspired collection left us hungry for more and eager to own the tulip-skirted coat with oversized pockets.

A recurring theme seen throughout were the glossy bow belts, tweed skirts and jackets accompanied by flat caps-balacing each outfit superbly.

Most importantly the make up (as seen on the likes of  Cara Delevingne and Jordan Dunn-who opened the show) was as scrumptious and understated as the collection.

Key makeup artist Wendy Rowe went for a striking and extremely wearable “Coco-caramel dusting” look that works beautifully with this chic and unpretentious collection.

Simply Scrumptious, indeed!

We adore these barrell bags just as much as the model does!

Gold digger!!

Michael Van Der Ham is one of those designers who will always have a unique design signature. With his magpie-like eye for beautiful textiles and prints, his collections have always maintained that collage, arty aesthetic that has made him a favourite of London’s bright young things.

Personally, I was always fascinated by how beautifully he could incorporate patches and drape sashes across his dresses so that the whole thing moved as one. His technical skill is just mind blowing.

Models were made up with Veronica Lake-esque curls, shimmering gold leaf eyelids (accented by sassy flicks of black liquid-liner) as they glided up and down the runway in glamorous looks worthy of the screen goddess.

Metallic details were present everywhere, from the jacquard panelling on bodice’s to hems with a delicate metallic floral appliqué – set against apple green separates (Ahhhh perfection!)

This show-stopping look is without fail my beauty crush of the season!

Glitter who?!

Cherry ripe!

The red lip had already pinged right onto our beauty radar for AW12, with sightings at PPQ and Basso and Brooke at London Fashion Week on Friday. However, it wasn’t until we headed to the House of Holland show the following day that it was clear the classic pillar box red lip is back with a vengeance this winter.

Whilst the model’s outfits lived up to the playful-energetic reputation that is House of Holland it was their vibrant rouge pouts that had us in awe – and it was the intensity of colour that impressed us most.

I for one love dewy youthful skin with a siren lip, simple and striking all at the same time!
