There were some pretty low key looks shown in London for Spring. The focus was on flawless skin with the perfect amount of glow. Brushed up brows, and with the exception of a bold heart shaped lip at Mary Katrantzou, the neutral lip reigned supreme.

Generally PCA is the least fabulous red carpet of them all, which is odd considering it’s the kick off, so to speak. I was happy to see Amber Valletta still able to bring it in nude Balmain,

Best of London Fashion Week SS15

The makeup  looks from London fashion week were definitely more diverse than we had seen in New York. Of course there were the fresh faces and dewy skin that go without saying on the catwalk, but the mad creations (there were about 6 different looks) at Vivienne Westwood is what makes London fashion week so brilliant!

Last week in London I worked on some fabulous shows keyed by top industry pros. Up and coming designers like Lucas Nascimento and well established design houses like Burberry, make for a mix of avant garde and easy to wear makeup looks. The gold leaf look at Simone Rocha keyed by Sam Bryant was everything.
