Beauty Highlights of London Fashion Week

London's Fall beauty is a crossroad between the classic and avant-garde. From Erdem's flowery hues to Halpern's outer space smoky eyes, these are some of our predicted beauty trends for your next Sephora splurge.

Erdem X Nars

Erdem's flowery aesthetic finally comes to life in a makeup form by Nars. The Fall 2018 collection takes inspiration from 1920's dancer and singer, Adele Astaire, which translates into finger waves hairstyle and bold lips. Models had a clean matte look with either dark plum, cherry red, or deep fuschia colored lips. Some of them were covered in spotted black veils, in line with the whole theme. The collaboration with Nars is releasing on April 15, and is only exclusive in the UK. 

Color Matching at Eudon Choi

The Korean-born designer delivered a collection one would call the epitome of British fashion. Inspired by British painters and his trip to a coastal town in Cornwall, the designer took primary colors to the show's beauty look, along with glossy wide-brimmed hats to match. Focusing on the eyes, they were outlined with bold colorful liners. 

Your Ballet Lesson Hairdo

Hair accesories at Simone Rocha's Fall 2018 collection became the highlight of the show. Renowned hairstylist James Pecis styled romantic braids, half-up hairdos, and side-up chignons. The messy and raw hairstyles were then decorated with black bows, and beaded hair clips. 

Slicked Back Hair

Models at Mary Katrantzou channelled David Bowie's slicked back hairstyle for the Fall 2018 show named "Interior Lives." The clean slick hairdo and the simple make up look (only a silver highlighter applied on the inner eyes and upper lips) definitely gave way to the print-packed collection in the show. 

Statement Liner

Matty Bovan isn't afraid of showing his creativity and originality on the runway, especially on his first solo show. The Central Saint Martins alumnus presented somewhat of a post-apocalyptic makeup look — a thick black liner across the forehead and the nose, creating a rectangular shape in the middle of the face. We're not convinced that this could be the new cat eye, but perhaps the look will make an appearance in the next Hunger Games movie. 

Iridescent Smoky Eyes

Halpern's Fall 2018 show was a explosion of wild colors and glitters, so naturally, iridescent smoky eyes fit the scene. Voluminous fake lashes, especially apparent on the lower lash lines, also accompanied the colorful eyes, giving them a more dramatic look. Adding to the rock-glam vibes, models wore a multi-textured pony tail that is sleek in the front and rough in the back.
