The Body Shop is a brand I have coveted from a very early age, so to go backstage with them at LFW was a dream…
Due to a number of events and bumping into a number of bloggers on the Saturday, it meant that I only had a short time at the end of the day to go along to Fashion Scout and hang out with the lovely ladies at the Body Shop.
I was there just in time for the Lulu Lui show, where the makeup trend was fitting in with the general concensus for fashion week this year, nude and natural. The whole look was put together by award winning make-up artist Lan Nguyen-Grealis who went for a rosy natural flush reminiscent of playful girls running around the garden in the summer. Sheer skin, rosy cheeks and a dab of colour to the lips. The Body Shop BB cream, the Lightening Touch Concealer, the Radiance Highlighter, the Honeycomb Bronzer and the Vitamin E Face Mist created the base, before the Colour Crush Eyeshadow in Chocolate Linger was blended onto the lids, a light coat of Define and Lengthen Mascara for definition and a touch of the Mint flavoured lip gloss was dabbed onto the lids last minute. The Lip and Cheek Tint was then dabbed onto the apples of the cheeks as well as the lips with some bronzer to contour and build on the cheek colour. Overall, the look was subtle and natural with bitten lips and flushed cheeks that added a whimsical and fairy like character to the models. The hair was pulled back and bound, with side section released and sections pulled out on either side like tiny horns. Not something many of us would wear, but again it added to this fairytale, elvish style.
The clothing by Lulu Lui was beautiful. Quite ethereal, folk and fairytale with tassels, ruffles and draping fabrics. Blues, reds and whites were noticeable, as I also noticed for the Topshop Unique show, so the mixture of these brights will definitely be making an appearance for S/S15.
What do you make of the make up trends for S/S15 that you have seen so far? Happy to go back to the no-make up make-up for another spring season?
