London Fashion Week got into its stride recently, with standout Autumn/Winter 2018 runway beauty looks served up by Gareth Pugh, Matty Bovan, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, and more.
Gareth Pugh loves a disruptive beauty look, and the designer’s show was no different. Makeup artist Val Garland created a series of arresting looks featuring slick, glossy skin, eyeshadow painted on in scratchy brushstrokes, and complexions dotted with splashes of blue or black pigment.
It was all about the glitter at Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, where the models had their hairlines, foreheads and eyelids sprinkled with a dusting of iridescent gold, turquoise and red shimmer. The dreamy approach was paired with scrubbed-clean complexions and tousled waves that were tucked into collars for a celestial aesthetic.
Designer Molly Goddard paid homage to a beauty classic – the winged cat eye. The eyeliner was kept thick and sweeping, for a confident but minimalist look that was finished with a fresh-faced complexion.
Matchy-matchy makeup was the focal point of the look at Asai, with models sporting corresponding eyeliner and lip liner in shades such as ruby red and forest green. Lips were glossy for a polished finish.
Matty Bovan’s dystopian collection was matched with an abstract beauty look that featured boxy blocks painted onto the models’ faces, some filled with colour and others left blank. Cherry red lips kept things sweet.
