Highlights from LFW A/W15: backstage beauty

Our beauty team went backstage at London Fashion Week to talk to the hairstylists, make-up artists and manicurists who created the looks. Here are our highlights so far.

Eudon Choi

Adam de Cruz’s blue and black dotted eyes were inspired by the circular prints from Eudon Choi’s collection.

Over at hair Naoki using Bumble and bumble swept hair up into messy dishevelled twists to show off the clothes’ details on the neckline.

Orla Kiely

Clinique’s UK colour artist Florrie White created the “healthy, happy and wholesome” make-up look, which was inspired by young, sophisticated and smart girls in the library at Orla Kiely.

Key Clinique products used backstage included: Blended Face Powder and Brush, All About Shadow in 04 Ivory Bisque, Chubby Stick Sculpting Contour in 01 Curvy Contour, Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlight in 01 Hefty Highlight, Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm in 02 Robust Rhubarb and Lash Powder Mascara in 01 Black Onyx.

Mother of Pearl

Hairstylist Karen Bigler for Bumble and bumble produced a 90’s cool undone hair look to complement the sporty and sophisticated clothes at Mother of Pearl.

Thickening Spray and Classic Hairspray were the key products used. A single blue clip was pinned casually to a small section of the hair at the top.


Butter London’s global colour ambassador and one of our favourite manicurists Katie Jane Hughes created a heavily glittered nail look at Sibling. Each model showcased either a black, pink or orange colour with glitter applied onto the fingers using the ombre brush. No top coat was used, instead just three colours from the Butter London collection: Union Jack Black (black), Sunbaker (orange) and Primrose Hill Picnic (pink).

Models wore punk-inspired wigs in different styles including mohawks, in colours of black, orange or pink.

Miranda Joyce for MAC Cosmetics focused on contouring and shading on the eyes and cheeks to create a beautiful make-up look inspired by girls who have been out clubbing.
