To round off our Getting Social collection, there’s no better time to turn our eye to the world of fashion and catwalk-worthy make-up than in the aftermath of Fashion Season. We checked all over to get the best links on the web, containing trends, titbits and truly inspiring artists.
When it comes to backstage insights, no-one does it better than industry heavyweights Vogue and Harpers Bazaar. They’ve collected all of the looks, neatly labelled them, and displayed them for all to see. They’ve made it easy peasy to get your fix of backstage beauty.
We also liked Byrdie’s round-up, choosing to highlight some of the less conventional show choices. It’s not always the big hitters who have the most exciting or daring looks.
Check out Stylist Magazine’s beauty blogs too, with amazing interviews with all of the top names. We can’t wait to try some of the up-coming products they mention, like the NARS Jubilation Dual-Intensity Blush, used at 3.1 Phillip Lim.
Speaking of NARS, they were all over their social media for Fashion Season. Their Facebook page has been documenting all of the looks they helped to create, with images and product information all neatly listed. Great work NARS!
ELLE lays it all out
If you’re after a clear, concise flick through all of the major looks from each week, Elle has done all of the hard work for you. We especially liked the Backstage Beauty blogging style at LFW – wish we were there! Click here to see Paris, Milan and NYC’s beauty looks as well.
Trending with Get the Gloss
Get the Gloss pulled together the looks from shows across the season to create this trends piece. Print it out now, it will be next Spring’s cheat sheet for the fastest way to update a look.
We’re always glued to our phones when Fashion Season rolls around – often the best way to get backstage access from the pros, and fast!
We spotted some new products on the Bourjois page, as well as the gorgeous ’60s look that head MUA Attracta Courtney created for Orla Kiely, so we asked the lady herself for an insight.
“The theme of Orla’s show was Flower Power for the modern woman, girls walking in fields of flowers in the summertime. I chose to use pretty earthy tones on the eyes that would reflect this perfect hazy late summer afternoon,” Attracta explained.
“Orla’s collection called for romantic tones as if softened by the sunlight, which I represented using the chocolate brown and pinks from the Bourjois Over Rose palette to capture a fresh feminine ‘60s style with over emphasised lashes in ultra black. The make-up was all about a dreaminess captured under a soft focused lens – a modern Twiggyesque style with a hint of eyelash rebellion for that carefree spirited, flower-power girl with a cutesy attitude.”
We also drooled over Marian Newman’s magical nails and enviable access to all of the best shows. Who wouldn’t want to be a fly on the wall of those tents?
A/W14 YouTube Reminders
Even though were now looking ahead to S/S15, it’s worth a look back at the shows for A/W14, now that the weather is finally cooling. We’ve pulled together a couple of videos, as well as one with the legend that is Pat McGrath MBE talking about the Punk-inspired Met Gala, and her own punk leanings.
