Get ready for London Fashion Weekend
This weekend starting from 25 until Sunday 27 February is London Fashion Weekend.
The official beauty sponsor for London Fashion Weekend is Elizabeth Arden and to get you in the mood for this ultimately glamorous event, Elizabeth Arden have put together a step-by-step guide on how to create metallic shimmering eyelids and bright lips.
The Trend: Maximum Metallics for the eyes
Ultra-glam blends of glistening metals made a comeback on the runways this season. Blend Elizabeth Arden’s Mono Intrigue Eyeshadow in gold in order to give this shimmery, sexy and glistening finish. More drama and depth was added to the model’s eyes using the Smoky Eyes Powder Eye Pencil in Espresso, to create a smoldering look. Before applying any eye makeup to the models, Prevage Eye Ultra Protection Anti-aging Moisturizer SPF 15 was dabbed on which instantly wakes up and firms the skin around the eyes.
The Trend: ’70s Brights for the lips
Completely opposite to the minimal trend of last season, the catwalk shows for spring / summer were awash with ’70s inspired vibrant colour. Super-brights on the lips are key to achieving this look. Exceptional Lipstick in Marigold was applied to the models; this is a fabulous orangy / red shade which will definitely turn heads. This shade dominated at the Diane Von Furstenberg, Lanvin and Fendi shows. By using the iconic Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant underneath the lipstick, lips were kept super smooth and ultra plumped up.
