LFW SS16 Beauty Report – The Hottest Beauty Looks Straight From The Catwalk

Gareth Pugh's Plastic Fantastic Painted Faces

What to do when you're beyond putting makeup on actual faces? Put it on a pair of nude tights instead. Obvs. Taking plastic pulp glamour as her inspiration Val Garland placed mesh over models' faces before painting it with blue, white and red MAC acrylics. The best part? The hairy stick on beauty spots to add '3D texture'. Well of course.

Topped off with a ginormous bright red clown-esque wig and extra long scarlet glittery talons, Garland admitted it isn't the easiest look to translate to everyday wear but when it's this fabulous who cares?

J W Anderson's Twisted Ponytail

JW Anderson's woman has done a lot of growing up since last season and had a brief trip to space. Yup, you heard us correctly. According to hair pro Anthony Turner, SS16's woman means business, looks expensive and apparently has enough money to grab a plane ticket to the moon. Casual.

How to recreate that in hair? With perfectly preened, oil slicked locks wound tightly into a twisted rope ponytail that's so perfect it's creepy.

Simone Rocha's Punk Blusher And Adam Ant Plaits

When someone says punk, peachy blusher isn't necessarily the first thing that comes to mind. Unless you're Sam Bryant of course. Blending together two shades of blush, Bryant swept her bespoke blusher over models' temples and up into their hair line. 'It's the placement that makes it punk but in a subtle way.'

Combine that with back-combed Adam Ant style braids and you've got the prettiest punk pirates we've seen in a long time.

House Of Holland's Desert Tan

Take legendary 60s icon Veruschka and Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas and you've got Isamaya Ffrench's inspiration behind her ruddy cheeked, deep tan look at House Of Holland. Wanting models to look like they'd just spent three days in the dessert, Ffrench swept a mix of red blusher with bronzer over models' cheekbones, over the bridge of their nose and up onto the forehead.

And the tan didn't stop there. Instant tanning lotion was applied on arms, legs, pretty much everywhere before bronzing powder was applied to create a matte finish.

Sibling's Serious Lashes

At Sibling today, make-up artist Miranda Joyce was applying graphic eyelashes the size of fly-swats to model’s lids, which turned out to be two sets of falsies that she had flattened together with straightening irons. 

‘My assistant and I spent all day yesterday making them with straighteners’ she explained. ‘We accidentally melted a few of them!  The flatness of them is anti-pretty but they are still cool and gorgeous.’

Julien MacDonald's 90s Model Makeup

At Julian MacDonald those ‘90s models cropped up again, this time as the subject of the photo greats Lindbergh, Weber and of course Testino.  The eyes, painted on by Val Garland for L’Oreal Paris, were SMOKIN’ hot.  The sexiest smoky eyes London has seen probably since the ‘90s!

Garland used three products to intensify the lashline (the L’Oreal Paris Super Liner Smokissime, then the Super Liner Felt Tip Pen and then the Color Riche Mono eyeshadow).  For some additional ‘sexiness’ (as if this show needed any more?!?) Garland pushed mascara into the very root of the eyelash.  The effect intensified the eyeliner and in turn the eye, rather than feeling like an application of mascara.
