Key Beauty Looks At London Fashion Week Fall Winter 2016

Fashion Feb 26
For Fall Winter 2016, one strong trend has emerged across the catwalks at London Fashion Week. From a touch of glitter sprinkle at Burberry to a simple red lip at Pringle of Scotland to barely any makeup at all at JW Anderson, make-up artists showed how less is more. 

Eudon Choi

At Eudon Choi, make-up artist Adam de Cruz chose to highlight the eyelashes of models. “The clothes were super feminine but we just needed the look to be a little bit harder. The inspiration was a girl who has had an amazing night last. She just woke up, with glowing skin, and cleaned herself up but left all her mascara on.” 

Holly Fulton

Models wore a futuristic silver foil-effect glitter on their eyes at Holly Fulton. Otherwise, the face was fresh, and lips were kept natural. 

Mary Katrantzou

For the team at Mary Kratrantzou, wet-look hair was contrasted with a bold lip in scarlet. Make-up artist Lynsey Alexander described it as “classic French beauty, very young and radiant with a stamped on lip for toughness.”


“This season, I think it is all about one detail," said Adam de Cruz. "It’s about eyes, blush, maybe the cheek: you pick one, and highlight it.” At Burberry, models' eyes were accentuated with a little glitter on the cheekbones and dark colour. 

Alexander McQueen

At Alexander McQueen, eyes were softly accentuated, rather than heavy liner. Otherwise, the skin was dewy and lip neutral.

Vivienne Westwood

At Vivienne Westwood, make-up was kept minimal, but some models wore statement red lip. Makeup artist Val Garland aimed for an androgynous look. Her inspiration was "girls who are a little bit angry, and dressed as boys.”

JW Anderson

“This season it seems to be quite a light coverage,” said Adam de Cruz. “On the skin, you use just a little foundation, that has barely any coverage, some concealer and a little bit of powder around the T-zone, just under the eyes and on the chin.” The trend continued at JW Anderson.

Pringle of Scotland

A bold orange-red lip was order of the day at Pringle of Scotland. Hair was swept back, and hair texture was kept natural.
