Fashion Week has wrapped for the season; with an air-kiss goodbye in Paris yesterday it marked the end of a full month of a non-stop fashion feed. Now I stick pretty rigidly to the beauty side of things mainly due to the fact that the most adventurous it gets in my wardrobe is a patterned pair of trousers that I pull out for popping to pick up milk from the shop but I quite like the element of backstage beauty. Seeing what artists are creating what looks for what shows, getting a preview of next season’s launches in action and experiencing cheekbone envy with every single goddamn model. So I thought I’d give you a rundown of my favourite beauty bits that I spotted many the Instagram picture of…
For hair it had to be the slightly kinky, yet obviously beach babe inspired cool at Fendi. The makeup was stunning, sure, but the hair? I will desperately be coaxing my locks into flat waves and loading up the shine spray come next summer to try and get that. With a self shoved messy parting and a bit of straightening it was the epitome of undone glam.
I thought I’d throw my fashion favourite in there too – Givenchy – and it has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that their first collection without Riccardo Tisci at the helm was entirely rendered in red. Nothing at all. Their choice of colour for their AW17 collection just so happens to be the most flattering colour on all skin tones and I liked it. You don’t even want to know what I’d do for a warm red turtleneck.
When a picture of a model from backstage at Rocky Star show cropped up on my Instagram with the caption stating that all they were wearing was peach lips and cheeks I think I exerted an outward sigh. They. Looked. Incredible. Just a swipe of The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain in Vineyard Peach on the lips and cheeks, brushed-up brows and curled lashes. Beautifully simple.
At the Gucci show it was all about claw-like nails. Talons embellished with crystals were put on models tips. There were pretty lilacs, greens and taupes, and were the ones that caught my eye. Oh my.
Feeling inspired and all I thought I’d mash my favourites together (Givenchy red turtleneck unfortunately not included) and sport them as a ‘My Makeup’ post tomorrow. Peach lips and cheeks, kinky hair and embellished nails – what a mix. Keep your beady eyes out for that.
