London Fashion Week: Sophia Webster A/W 16 Beauty Look

As Benefit’s Head Make up Artist, Lisa Potter-Dixon has the ultimate magic make up fingers so it’s no wonder she’s sought after during London Fashion Week.  Lisa and benefit cosmetics were the official sponsors of Sophia Webster’s A/W 2016 runway show where they created a stunning ‘blown-out smoky eye look’. Here’s what Lisa created in her own words…

“The look I collaborated with Sophia on was inspired by all things Tim Burton. The look is gothic girly with an extreme, blown out smoky eye, feral brows, washed out skin and a heart shaped lip to add a subtle romanticism. Bold yet girly.” 

We can’t wait to give this look a try and it couldn’t be simpler. Opt for the actual runway look or translate it into a wearable look for every day. Here’s how:

Get the Runway Look

Step 1 Mix hello flawless oxygen wow! liquid foundation (one shade lighter than the skin tone) with a white face paint to create a pale, transparently nude skin tone. Blend all over the face using fingers.

Step 2 For the eyes, layer hoola bronzer onto the lid, slightly over the brow and under the eye down to the top of the cheekbone to create a hollow shape. Layer and blend numerous times to create depth of colour.

Step 3 To frame the eye further, blend benefit’s longwear powder eye shadow in ‘quick, look busy’ under the lower lash line and onto the eye lid. Buff to perfection – there should be no hard lines.

Step 5 Next, create a bold eyebrow by drawing hair like strokes with brow zings deep and they’re real mascara in black. Add extra volume by brushing gimme brow in medium/deep over the top, away from the hair first, and then back with the hair.

Step 6 For the lips, begin by knocking back the natural lip tone with a combination of foundation and boi-ing concealer. Custom blend the lipstick shade by mixing boi-ing concealer in your natural skin tone, with benefit’s hydra-smooth lip color in air kiss. In the centre of the lip, create a soft, rounded heart shape, with a lip brush, to finish the look.
