LFW SS12: Beauty Highlights

OMG LFW SS12 = BRILL.

Or, in plain English, London Fashion Week spring/summer 2012 looked brilliant. In every sense of the word.

From House of Holland to Mulberry, a spectrum of colours lit up the catwalk. Pastel tones, candy hues, mouth-watering sorbets, crayola brights – oh how they brightened our weather-dampened spirits!

And I’m not just talking about the clothes – the make-up was stunning too. So, given that make-up trends are part of the ever-changing face of fashion, it’s only right that Yesterface documents the best of LFW SS12! Enjoy…

2. Topshop Unique

Toppers SS12 is right up Yesterface’s street with its Ancient Egyptian inspired look. The Hieroglyphic nails are AMAZO, and the gold leaf ‘do brings a whole new meaning to the phrase shiny hair…

Yes, times may be hard at the mo due to the [insert newsreader voice] “current economic climate”, but Topshop’s luxurious-looking trend is set to make us feel worth our weight in gold. (Geddit? Gold… Currency… Economy… Yep.)

Pass the pastel… Shall defs be investing in this punchy colour come Spring. If not sooner. The colour in question being Bourjois Regard Effet Metallise eyeliner – 54 Bleu Clinquant. Love the super-defined lashes and jet black eyeliner, too.

5. Ashish

Get ready to look starry eyed. Georgina Graham’s sparkly artwork has proven it’s possible to wear glitter on your face without looking like a five year old. All you need is MAC PRO glitter and some dark vampish lippy to offset the girly glitz.
