Coming out of New York, we're always itching for some spectacular beauty in London, but lo and behold, this was the season the Brits embraced the bare face. Color us surprised but never disappointed. This season's LFW beauty was all about statement-making details, tousled locks and flawless skin. Here are a few of our favorites.
Jean Pierre Braganza
Now we're not going so far as to say this look is quite punched-in-the-face but it's headed in that direction. We love the tonal shading around the eye giving a more natural looking smoky eye. The piecey bold lashes keep it from looking too dishevelled and we'll definitely be giving this look a test run.
After seasons of country neutrals and preppy tomato red lips, Burberry's look for spring is a bit more unexpected. This warm earthy pink shadow will be hard to pull off for many but is a refreshing change.
This look is all about the hair. This textured braid looks undone but not messy and pulled apart without being frizzy. If you're looking to get this look at home, try using a texturizing powder that will add volume without weight.
Here's a cat eye that won't soon be forgotten. With luminous skin and a moisturized lip, this look's spotlight is on the liner. And while it's not your new everyday go-to, it's worth noting as a stunning, graphic alternative.
Carrying on the clean skin train, the models at Katrantzou's show sported bitten lips with the stain concentrated in the center giving the look a wonderful worn, low-maintenance feel.
Mulberry's country meets city attitude is clear in this look. Everything about it is subtle, making it a great option for everyday. The hair is lightly tousled at the roots and the smudged grey liner gives definition without a harsh edge.
While purple shadow is hardly groundbreaking, we love this graduated smoky eye that is perfect for girls with hooded lids. The definition is focused on the lower lash line which is a noteworthy trend for this season.
We've seen quite a few faux-hawks this season but this textured hawk is one of the best. We love the hidden looping braids and sleek tail.
Even though these are the spring collections, we'll be adopting this look for winter. In the blustery, snowy months, a low-maintenance updo such as this is the best way to keep yourself put together with minimal effort.
Last season's wet look was all about the slick but this season it's a return to texture. If you want to get the look, avoid handfuls of mousse that will make your hair crunchy and opt instead for high-shine pomades that will add gloss as well as texture.
