What makeup will we be wearing this year? London Fashion week in a nutshell!

best trends from london fashion week

Every year we look to fashion week eagerly anticipating new trends and plucking the most memorable, wearable looks for the year ahead and thankfully this London Fashion Week passed did not fail to disappoint! Here are a few to watch out for!

The purple eyeshadow is back it would seem! Varying from softer pinks and lilac tones, a wash  of colour completely over the eye was spotted on a number of catwalks this year not forgetting to mention the use of coloured liner below the bottom lash line.

Staying on the subject of eyes Tom Ford brought us some amazing disco inspired and Debbie Harry styled charcoal eyes. Naturally the queen of  the ‘smokey eye’ Charlotte Tilbury was the only woman for this job and the results were stunning, coining her glistening silver creation the ‘smoky oval eye’ 🙂 and brows are most definitely still big in every sense of the word!

Smeared ‘just kissed’ berry lips were the order of the day and for me my absolute favourite of all the makeup elements with Burberry and Topshop Unique making this their main focus. just kissed lips

Gorgeous dewy skin was  most predominantly featured and we can place our bets now on seeing beautiful, highlighted skin and lots of gloss in Spring/Summer 2015! Gloss and Glitter! One artist that nailed this look is
 the head artist for Xiao Li, pairing a stunning on trend pink with luminous skin.

Then there was the glitter….ALL the glitter 🙂 In clothes, makeup, hair glitter is here to stay well after the Christmas season so watch this space!

Some of these trends I love and think are super wearable however the jury is still out on purple shadow, I love a soft pink myself but purple might not work on some skin tones….lets just wait and see! If there is anything you may have spotted over the last week that we have missed as always we would love to hear!
