This season's Fashion Week has given us lots of food for thought, as well as a whole host of new trends to trial, especially when it comes to makeup. While LFW is known for being the birthplace of extravagant beauty trends, every year there's also a handful of very wearable makeup looks that come to light.
And to prove it, we'll tell you how to recreate three slick beauty looks from this season in just a few easy steps...
Look 1: Warm and Rosy
Backstage at David Koma, London Fashion Week September 2018.
David Koma delivered the ultimate 'no-makeup, makeup' look, which encompassed glowing, natural-looking skin, a light layer of mascara and a rosy tint on the lip - ideal for hitting the gym or for an impromptu shopping trip. And the good news is that this look is super easy to create with the help of No7's NEW Match Made CUSTOM BLEND Foundation Drops, which are available in 25 shades. The concept behind this foundation is simple: mix 1, 2 or 3 drops into your moisturiser or primer to achieve a light, medium or full coverage.
To achieve a 'no-makeup, makeup' look, mix just 1 drop with your moisturiser or primer and then mix together and apply to your face, before setting with a powder like the No7 Airbrush Away Finishing Powder. With 1 drop of the foundation, you'll have a lovely, light coverage. Seeing as you're only using mascara on your eyes, it's worthwhile curling your lashes beforehand, for an extra bit of oomph. We love the No7 Lash Impact Ultra which has great staying power.
On your lips, use a tinted lip balm or sheer lipstick in a rosy shade - and remember that you can blend a little bit of this colour onto your cheeks, too, for a pop of colour.
Look 2: Daytime Dewiness
Backstage at Paula Knorr, London Fashion Week September 2018.
Strong brows and shimmery eyes reigned supreme at the Paula Knorr LFW. To recreate this look, you first need to start by acing your dewy base. Mix 2 drops of the No7 NEW Match Made CUSTOM BLEND Foundation Drops with the No7 Radiance Boosting Primer to achieve that lived-in look the models were rocking on the runway. Apply the foundation with a sponge in delicate bouncing motions, so that it looks natural and dewy.
For your brows, we recommend using a powder and an angled brush to create a thick, bushy finish that will really frame your face. On your eyes, dab a shimmery shadow onto your lid and up to your crease. If you're feeling brave, you can opt for a pastel colour like the models at Paula Knorr. Or for something a little more low-key, go for a shimmery silver, gold or black - simple, yet sophisticated.
Look 3: Bold and Brazen
Runway at Burberry, London Fashion Week September 2018.
This season, the models at Burberry donned bold, Hollywood-inspired makeup - think a striking lip and flawless skin. In real life, this beauty look is perfect for an important meeting at work, or even a classy night out with friends.
While this look may seem like hard work to achieve, it's really not - you don't even need a glam squad! Simply mix 3 drops of the No7 NEW Match Made CUSTOM BLEND Foundation Drops with a No7 Day Cream, and apply to your face using a flat Foundation Brush. For the eyes, keep things simple with a swipe of white eyeliner in the waterline. This will help to make your eyes appear bigger and also brighter.
A pop of bright colour on the lips - like the No7 Match Made Moisture Drench Lipstick in 'Pillarbox' - will complete your bold look and keep all the attention solely focused on you. When using a bright lipstick, always apply it with a thin lip brush for accurate precision.
