Fashion Week AW22: All The Best Beauty Looks

Grazia brings you all the best beauty looks from AW22 shows.


by Grazia |

Fashion week is back, people. And frankly, the sartorial relief has never been more welcome: our newsfeeds have been dominated with partygate, and god, why does WW3 suddenly feel disgustingly imminent?

Praise the fashion gods for delivering excellent shows so far. We've seen Euphoria-esque, cool girl co-ords from Coach; tulles on tulles from Carolina Herrera, and a full latex ensemble from Christian Siriano. The fashion has - inevitably - been a delicious spectacle.

The eyes of Grazia's beauty team though, naturally, are on the make-up. The beauty looks to come from fashion week are something to marvel at, and forecast trends to know for the year ahead. Graphic eyeliner? Neon eyeshadow? Bare, glossy lips? You'll see it at fashion week first.

Strap yourself in and scroll on down for some serious fashion week make-up inspo. Take notes: we anticipate you'll be seeing a whole lot more of them in the weeks to come.

Best Fashion Week Beauty Looks AW22

LFW: Victoria Beckham AW22
1 of 21

At Victoria Beckham, natural beauty reigned supreme. Clean skin with a matte finish, and just the slightest slick of lip balm and combed through brows made for the ultimate fresh face.

Backstage, Stylist Cyndia Harvey used GHD tools to enhance and celebrate the natural movement and texture of the models' hair. Hair was allowed to air dry to capture the true shape, and curls and waves were defined with the GHD Thin Wand and Unplugged styler.

David Koma AW22

Sofia Tilbury at Charlotte Tilbury was the artist behind the looks at David Koma. Her inspiration? 'A sporty, post-gym glow. We wanted the models to look like they'd just been for a run, with a healthy-looking, dewy radiance.'

LFW: Paul Costelloe AW22

Make Up Artist Yin Lee used all Kevyn Aucoin products to create the ethereal, enchanted look backstage at Paul Costelloe. Skin was kept bright and glowy with Aucoin's Stripped Nude Skin Tint and Glass Glow Face Illuminator, but the star of the show was the statement eye - a smoky midnight blue finished with iridescent rhinestones.

Rejina Pyo AW22

At Rejina Pyo, clean, fresh skin was the star of the show, with some models sporting pops of colour in the form of a tomato red lip, while others wore natural, pinky balms.

Backstage at Rejina Pyo, models were prepped for the runway by Sunday Riley's Fashion Week facialists Luke Henderson and Jurga Maciene. Starting with Ceramic Slip Cleanser to pull dirt and impurities out of the skin, the refreshing Pink Drink spray followed to resurface and quench skin, and the Good Genes Glycolic Acid Treatment gave models their runway ready glow.

LFW: Molly Goddard AW22
7 of 21

There was a rock and roll revival at Molly Goddard, and Thom Walker kept the make-up in line with the carefree attitude. "we kept the skin quite simple, and used a little Givenchy foundation for a super natural almost skincare based finish". And although Some of the girls had a soft, nude lip with a brush of foundation, six had a "blotted, blurred, deep red wine lip deliberately smudged, with no perfect edges. Even the same with the eyeliner, even though it was graphic, we took away all of the points".

Backstage skin prep came from 111Skin's Global Head Aesthetician Milena Naydenov. Starting by cleansing and a layer of 111SKIN's Antioxidant Energising Essence to boost hydration, a lymphatic massage then refreshed and contoured the face before applying one the brands iconic 111SKIN Facial and Eye Masks. "The Anti Blemish Bio Cellulose Facial Mask was popular amongst the models," says Milena. "Especially for catering to skin that is constantly combatting the consequences of heavy make-up." To finish? The Rose Gold Radiance Booster for luminous and radiant skin, with a natural, dewy sheen.

Erderm AW22

'Erdem's make-up direction for this season captures the photographer's intimate aesthetic and provides a moment that breaks through the darkness. The look is an informal complexion set against an occasional bright red lip,' says Jane Richardson, NARS' Global Artistry Director.

Backstage Larry King created the shows slick, androgynous, 1920s and 30s inspired hair look using a mousse, volumnising spray, and Dyson tools. First hair is blow dried with a round brush for straightening and shine, then the Corrale straighteners are used for a smooth finish, before creating a side parting and securing into a low ponytail. To finish off, the Dyson Supersonic's flyaway attachment ensures the super glossy finish that keeps stray hairs in check.

LFW: Paul and Joe AW22
11 of 21

With nods to the swinging Sixties and great British countryside, Paul and Joe Beauté opted for nostalgic, graphic eyeliner with a contemporary twist. "It was all about the Paul and Joe glow, but with a graphic liner," said Jo Martin, Beauty Brand Manager. "We used black, brown or aubergine depending on the girls skin tone, and used the liquid eyeliner to do the base line. Brows were brushed up, but a nude matte lip kept it simple, just pressed into the centre". Think Edie Sedgewick meets the beauty muse for the show, Anya Taylor Joy.

bareMinerals matched their make-up to the feel of Rixo's 1930's inspired collection. 'Classic, feminine and fun' was their brief: it was interpreted with a glowy skin, balmy cheeks and smudged eyes.

Christian Cowan AW22
13 of 21

Christian Cowan opted for glossy, smudgy eyes and clear glossy lips to accompany. Chic, but don't wear this one outside in the wind.

Marrisa Wilson AW22
14 of 21

The theme here? Well placed gloss, apparently. Marrisa Wilson applied it strategically in the places you'd naturally get a little perspiration (the nasolabial folds) - but actually, it doesn't look sweaty. A few larger specks of glitter placed above the crease of the eye and underneath accompanied it.

LaQuan AW22
15 of 21

XXL wings are in vogue, according to LaQuan. Eyeshadow is matched at equal length with the wing, and elongates the eye.

Dion Lee AW22
16 of 21

Neon, blocky, cobalt eyeshadow works particularly well against untouched skin in Dion Lee's show.

Carolina Herrera AW22
17 of 21

There was one common theme on the catwalks of Carolina Herrera: long, straight eyeliner. Surprisingly, it works - and doesn't drag the eye downward.

Tory Burch AW22
18 of 21

NARS were behind the looks at Tory Burch at NYFW. Make-up artist Diane Kendal says they wanted to highlight 'healthy skin, and they achieved the lit-from-within look using the new NARS Light Reflecting Foundation.'

Behind another NARS look, Diane Kendal combines a lightweight, luminous foundation with a strong, matte lip for 'the perfect play on textures.'

Brandon Maxwell AW22
20 of 21

Stylist's at Dyson created this sleek braid-meets-bun. The key to a pristine parting? The Dyson Supersonic (with the Professional Styling Concentrator attachment) to direct airflow down the hair shafts at each side.

Zimmerman AW22
21 of 21

Zimmerman opted for blue liner that closely hugged the lashline.
