London Fashion Week: Beauty Trends off the catwalk

London Fashion Week: Beauty Trends off the catwalk

The latest beauty trends off the catwalks

London Fashion Week is coming to a close and one of the major trends on the catwalks for Spring/Summer 2018 was the ‘no-make-up’ look either on its own or coupled with an eye/lip pop of colour or actually going barefaced. The ‘no-makeup’ look isn’t exactly new, but going completely bare faced does seem to be gaining traction.

Alicia Key’s famously decided to stop wearing makeup completely, and has so far continued to do so. As well as the contour queen, Kim Kardashian-West going barefaced a little while ago on the Balenciaga front row.

London fashion week beauty looks often reflect the low maintenance style of London fashion week itself. The hair and makeup looks are mostly to complement the clothing, and clean, minimal, glowing skin is often the go-to at LFW.

However, although this may seem a little plain these looks are much easier for the average person to recreate at home, especially when they simply send barefaced models down the catwalks. + This year to spice it up a little bit – plain, fresh often bare skin has been paired with either a pop of colour, interesting eye liner or glitter.

This LFW + some from NFW the clean, minimal but glowing skin trend is still going. Here are some of our favourite looks from the catwalks...

Fresh skin and a pink/berry lip stain at Roksanda:

Loving the eyeliner flick with flashed of blue, turquoise, pink or lilac in the outer corners at Oscar de la Renta show.

It was fresh faced at Victoria Beckham, Pat McGrath was in charge and was going for a post-spa skin look, which means lots of moisture and… that’s almost it to be honest:

A fresh face was also at Prabal Gurung:

AND Alexander Wang. (This was apparently inspired by 90’s Kate Moss – meaning minimal makeup, fresh skin and a balmy lip:

If we needed any more confirmation that minimal and fresh is in, Jeremy Scott (known for his crazy looks) had a runway beauty look of glowy faces paired with just three crystals under each eye...(Those nails on the other hand):

House of Holland paired fresh skin with a pop of colour around the eyes:

Mansur Gavirel – went for the natural look to show off the beauty of the skin (Uzo was heading the beauty).

+ Why not. The prevalence of fresh faces on the catwalk, especially at London Fashion Week, just goes to show that glowing skin is never really out of fashion.
