From the runways of Isa Arfen to Toga, the inspiration for this season had an emphasis on raw beauty with a focus on fresh skin, boyish brows and haunting eyes according to makeup artist Andrew Gallimore. A summary of the intention of this look is a ‘handsome, Brooke Shields, super-woman.’ Aaron de Mey, who worked with NARS Cosmetics at the J.W Anderson show told WWD that the models were given exaggerated eyebrows to look like they haven’t been plucked. It’s all about fresh, polished skin with a strong eyebrow that boasts confidence.

If you thought the days of the ponytail were long gone, think again! The statement ponytail was back and with a more expressive approach. Sam McKnight featured a strong and voluminous ponytail for the Halpern show. The low ponytail was slicked to glossy perfection at the crown, all while exploding in dramatic kinks and curls at the end.

Flapper Inspiration

The models on the Erdem runway were showcased with flapper-inspired hair and makeup. From the classic up do’s, to the red lip and black smokey eye, this look served as a preview of the designers up and coming NARS collaboration. Matte and gloss elements were also contrasted to add extra drama to their beauty looks.

Sparkle and Shine

There was no shortage of sparkle this season with glitter glowing on the girls at the Preen by Thornton Bregazzi and Temperley London shows. From models’ hairlines, to their foreheads – glitter was applied glowingly as if they had just emerged from the water. Val Garland crafted this high-shine look by lightly blowing glitter onto the models’ faces.

Mónica Marmo took inspiration from the textures of the Delpozo Fall collection, and with that created looks that emphasised contrast from matte skin and eyes, then painted with shiny metallic silver. Charlotte Tilbury created a beauty look for Temperley London, which included what she called a ‘smokey bronze Hollywood eye.’
