LFW 2019

Let’s talk fashion! 

London Fashion Week has been and gone and what a whirlwind of looks there were to be had from these show-stopping collections. From the bold spring/ summer look of Molly Goddard to the sophisticated autumn/winter pieces by Amanda Wakeley. There was something for all!

Here are a few of our favourite looks with their inspired makeup choices:

Who doesn’t love a signature tulle from Molly Goddard? Most widely seen in hit TV series Killing Eve, we can’t get enough of Goddard vision for spring/ summer 2020. We love the comfortably over-dressed vibe her pieces exude. The make-up therefore supported Goddard’s vision. Created by Hiromi Ueda for MAC Cosmetics, this Charlie Chaplinesk boldness was brought to life with a kohl lipped kiss (MAC Cosmetics liquid lipstick in caviar solid matt black). This has been paired with a severe expressive brow for added depth. Finished off with a strong punch of blush to the apple of each cheek and the final imperfect look is complete.It’s a truly harmonious partnership between fashion and cosmetics. We can’t wait to see how these trends play out in 2020.

Amanda Wakeley is luxury fashion meets effortless chic, providing stylish solutions for the multi-tasking Wakeley Woman. Founder and creative director, Amanda Wakeley OBE has dressed Royalty to Queen Bee herself (Beyoncé). Her autumn/ winter 2019 collection has her signature style all over. Echoed in the wakeup make-up applied, it gave a clean classic look, which let the clothes do the talking. Cheers to clean-glam!

House of Holland’s spring/ summer 2020 collection “DANCE THE PAIN AWAY” definitely brought David Bowie meets Burning Man mystic to LFW. Possibly the boldest make-up statement seen amongst the shows, this purple, gold and pink colour story created striking looks. Looks so good, that it only extenuated the eye area with flecks of glitter to finish the look extending to the cheeks and temples. Dominic Skinner (senior make-up artist to MAC cosmetics) brings his brave and bold style to these fashion forward looks. A real tomboy nature can be found within the collection, showcasing the feminine figure in a masculine light. Bold prints and rich colours fill the 70’s inspired looks. We can’t get enough!

Last but by no means least we have to mention Victoria Beckham’s clean but classic beauty. 70’s inspired colour, Pat McGrath uses burgundy line in the eye crease. Painted delicately using a wet brush and then dipped into the eye shadow shade Royal from VB Beauty’s Smokey Eye Brick. With a fresh-faced vibe this graphic structure creates a dynamic natural look to partner with the spring/ summer 2020 collection. #VBSS20 has taken “inspiration from past decades, then looked [at there] brand DNA and put everything into a blender, to make a new, modern mix”@victoriabeckham Instagram. Why fix what isn’t broken? It’s an exciting collection full of class and elegance.
