Glossy Lids

Though in general we like to keep shine away from the face, this year one of the predominate trends was the glossy coloured lid. This look was seen in many shows such as Eudon Choi in shades of burnt orange matched with fresh faces and nude lips. Holly Fulton showcased a deep coral too but also recreated the glossy look in an amazon green.


The House of Holland girls were Tan-tastic as well as the on-going makeup theme. Their fierce facial features were lightly bronzed up, giving them a healthy summer glow instead of a harsh contour. The Holly Fulton girls were also tanned to perfection. So put down your angled contour brushes girls and aim for a more natural way of warming up the face.

 The Brooke Shields 80’s brow (Sorry Cara!)

Christopher Kane’s models had rather eye-catching brows that gave the 80’s power brow a run for its money. To keep all eyes on the brows, the rest of the face was kept to a minimum.

 Face Art

A big craze this year was facial décor! Models at Zandra Rhodes wore gems that took us back to our primary school days. The ASISHA girls had their lids carefully covered in sequins and glitter. Bora Aksu on the other hand opted for intricate, sliver, floral tattoos which were placed on the foreheads of the girls.

Plum Lips

Though the attention seems to have been focused on the eyes, international make up artist Wendy Rowe decide to go for a sombre plum look, slightly adapted to fit each individual skin tone.

The sleeker the better

When it came to hair. there was a wide array of different looks, while most designers went for ‘ the yesterday’s hair look’ (loose wave with bangs). Jonathan Saunders’ models wore their hair sleek and straight with either a middle or side part. Other designers such as Bora Aksu had their hairstylist create a sleek low-slung ponytail look while Emilia Wickstead ‘s models had all their hair sleeked back with gel creating a controlled wet look.
