Okay – so, the fashion world have been focused on designers’ set of Autumn/Winter trends, but we’re only just heading into spring. Join us as we rewind back to September 2013’s Fashion Week and see how you can achieve the hot-right-NOW trends yourself:
Bare-ly There Base
SEEN AT: Alexander Wang. Balmain.
HOW TO: This season, bases were as pared back as it comes, with a hint of concealer to create über natural bases. Let your natural complexion shine through with a touch of (well-blended) concealer to cover up any blemishes or discolouration. Benefit Boi-ing’s creamy formula is blendable and super long-lasting.
SEEN AT: Feline flicks at Stella McCartney. Smoky drama at Erdem / Versace.
HOW TO: A gel eyeliner is the most versatile of the liner family – you can smudge it into the waterline or trace out a 60s-style flick with a fine brush – like this conveniently angled easy-to-use one by Laura Mercier. We’re big fans of their Tightline Cake Eyeliner too, the rich colour stays put and doesn’t get cake-y.
SEEN AT: Rag & Bone. Topshop. Mary Katrantzou.
HOW TO: LAQA & Co.’s easy-to-apply chubby pencil in Lambchop is a fab, fun fuchsia perfect for spring/summer. If these matte, highly-pigmented formulas make you nervous, Vasanti’s Lipshine in Red Sea is a letterbox red in a sheer, glossy finish.
SEEN AT: Tom Ford. Michael Kors.
HOW TO: The lazy girl’s up-do – apply a ton of texturising products throughout strands – like KMS California’s Sea Salt Spray – to add volume and grit. Love it!
SEEN AT: Tortoise-shell at Rodarte. Marian Newman applied hundreds of eye-catching Swarovski crystals at Giles.
