Our Getting Social series is BACK! The hottest round-up of inspiration we’ve found on the web, with some help from all of you! We asked you to send in your own work and links to others who have inspired you, and now it’s time to share. Time for #Getting Social – Fashion Edition.
Fashion month came to a rousing climax in Paris this month, and as always we were glued to Instagram to see all of the looks first. Pat McGrath, Tom Pecheux and Val Garland were – unsurprisingly – some of the most jet-setting artists behind many of the looks across the four weeks. Their Instagram accounts document many of the looks they created, with other snippets of backstage life.
Couldn’t keep up with all of the looks and news from LFW? Tatler have a handy (and often hilarious) account if the week, complete with backstage photos of everything from nails to sausage rolls. Yes, really. Cosmopolitan also have a handy slideshow of all the main trends from NYC to Paris.
Did you know Charlotte Tilbury runs a blog on her website? In between browsing her latest launches you can check in for an insight to what she’s been working on. And – even better! – she’s listed details on how she created the looks for various shows over the month, from concept to products.
Sephora ran a live YouTube stream straight after the Burberry show where make-up designer Wendy Rowe talked through the unusually autumnal look for the S/S show, and demonstrated some of the new products you’ll no doubt be lusting after.
Speaking of getting the look, Primped.com has the low-down on how Linda Cantello created the ‘new femininity’ look for Giorgio Armani. Illuminated skin, a rosy flush on the lips and cheeks – and red lashes? We’re intrigued!
It wasn’t hard to see that blue eyes was going to be huge again for S/S 16 – next year we’ll see more pops of bright colour in interesting liner configurations. Practice now and stay ahead of this trend with Mode.com’s collection of blue eye looks from the shows.
Pinterest has long been our go-to for a quick dose of inspiration – and to see great boards of all of the S/S 16 looks has us missing the warmer weather keenly. Create your own inspiration boards with the help of these great pinners: Colette Casher Make-up Artistry has pins with details on how the looks were created, while Bethany Howe and Martha Butterworth have created a visual feasts with hundreds of looks.
Mod Eyes TV got backstage on several shows and managed to snag the designing MUAs to describe their looks – in this case it’s the fantastic Terry Barber describing his modern, colourful twist on eyeliner, taking it from the socket rather than the lashline, for the Byblos show.
