The Sunday Times Style’s Fashion Features Editor let her outfit do all the talking by partenering her to-die-for vintage Chanel Baseball jacket with a paired back approach to beauty. For this au natural makeup look the focus is on adding warmth to the skin and defining both the lashes and the brows. Pandora’s picks of choice are Brow Drama by Maybelline, YSL Volume Effect mascara and NARS’ bestselling bronzer in Laguna.
Model and TV presenter Pips proves coloured hair and bold makeup aren’t mutually exclusive partnering her high fashion take on the purple rinse with a statement red lip. To create her crimson pout Pips lined her lips using a Chanel Lipliner and then filled in with a Bobbi Brown Art Stick and kept her skin looking fresh and glowing used Chanel Les Beiges foundation held in place all day long with Lancome’s Smoothing Primer.
Chicer then chic lifestyle blogger Peony Lim favours a simple combo of winged eyeliner and a pop of peach blush for her trip to Somerset House using Chanel’s Liquid Eyeliner and NARS’ iconic Orgasm Blusher. Her flawless skin was kept in check by using a base of By Terry Tinted Moisturiser finished with a dusting of shine saving powder (in this case NARS).
The model and DJ embraced an elegant rock-chick vibe on the FROW at Emilia Wickstead completed with a brown smoky eye. A look in Amber’s makeup bag reveals that a blend of Kevin Aucoin’s Frosted Jade and Bronze shadows was the secret to the perfect daytime smokey eye and her nude lip lip was acheieved with a prepping of Burt’s Bees Lip Balm and a swipe of Charlotte Tilbury’s Kissing Kate.
The actress kept her makeup simple and Spring like with a glowing base, rosy cheeks and subtley defined eyes. Donna’s products of choice for her fashion week outing included the hydrating Chanel’s Vitalumiere foundation, the Gloss team’s favourite Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge and Rimmel’s bargain soft kohl eyeliner.
Emma’s fashion week beauty look was all about the hair with makeup kept to a minimum. Her flawless, glowing base was mastered using a hat trick of Burberry skincare products: foundation, concealer and the all important illuminating creme. A coat of black mascara and Vaseline for the lips completes this easy-peasy beauty look.
