RUNWAY REPORT // S/S 2015 LONDON

The beauty scene in London is one of my favourites– people are so eccentric, and the whole negative stigma around wearing more makeup than what looks natural is completely ignored there. And it should be! So there was no surprise when the looks at London Fashion brought more than the “NYC Face” (aka nothing).

Rock n’ Roll was huge, and while we saw subtle allusions to it in New York, London went full force. The ladies at Tom Ford wore heavy smokey eyes that screamed “look at me” more than indie rocker. Paired with bare skin and shaggy, choppy waves, the girls looked effortlessly glamorous.

Marchesa followed suit with a heavily lined eye, juxtaposing their feminine dresses and bringing that cool girl edge to the look. The skin was glowing, perfected, and slightly sun-kissed.

On a less sophisticated note, House of Holland did a sparkly eye along with fully lined eyes and peachy cheeks, the inspiration being “the groupies of the 1970’s that always got in”.

The worn-in and slightly sweaty ponytails at Ashley Williams looked straight of the stage, then after the after party and a short nights sleep, you woke up and walked at Topshop Unique. The look there was what I assume a smokey eye and red lip would look like straight out of the shower, paired with glowy, slightly flushed skin.

Burberry called their look “The Birds and the Bees”, so you can assume they didn’t really go for an edgy look. The girls sported perfected but natural looking skin paired with a ruby red lip and slight beigey tones on the lids. So, so beautiful while being so, so understated (and Vivanna’s already got a tutorial up— she was at the show!!).

Felder Felder did a subtle nod to the doe-eyed sixties look, along with peachy cheeks and a wash of colour on the eyes.

Preen’s look was basically a ton of freckles and super fresh skin– naive would describe this look more than lead guitarist from 76′.

We did see a take on the barely-there New York City face, however the ladies in London aren’t afraid to put some work into it– aka it’s okay to look like you’ve got some makeup on. The models at Jonathan Saunders had perfected complexions with a slight contour, much like Christopher Kane, who added full brows to the look.

Erdem did an even base dusted with coral blush.

Temperley London added an über-dewy shine to the high points of the face and a baby pink flush on the cheeks.

Mary Katrantzou did the most low-key version of the look– semi-matte, perfected skin and a brush out brow.
