Beauty Highlights From London Fashion Week: Victoriana At Bora Aksu And Our Backstage Beauty Kit

16 February 2013 by

We're only on day two of London Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2013 and already we've spotted tons of beauty tricks and trends that are worth keeping up your sleeve for next season. Allow us to introduce the best beauty moments from yesterday's shows...

1. Angel Face

Zoe Jordan's girls were supremely feminine, effortless beauties, but with a good dose of attitude and a sweep of black, flicked eyeliner thrown in for good measure. Give it a go. We dare you.

2. Blush Rush

In the impressively zen-like backstage area at Zoe Jordan the beauty editors fell head over heels for Bourjois' brand new Creme Blushes.  Set to land on counters come May they are certainly one to watch out for. Use your finger-tips to apply a low slung flush just below the cheek-bone. Very fabulous. Very Autumn/winter 2013.

3. V is For Victoriana

There were Victorian references a plenty in a busy backstage area at Bora Aksu. Hair was quite literally painted with gel and bound into two interwoven braids. Over in makeup sad down-turned eyes, a sweep of round blush and a 20's rouge lip came courtesy of a library of gorgeous Elis Faas products.  

4. Hot Lips

Over to Felder Felder and Grazia fave Mel Arter was busy creating elegant but rebellious gals inspired by the Zepher Boys. We fell hard and fast for the burnt red lip which was painted with Max Factor Lip Pencil in Red Rush with a dash of Max Factor Flipstick in Gypsy Red which sat atop it. Lovely!

5. Backstage Beauty Kit

We took advantage of a fairly quiet fashion week Friday to pull together our ultimate backstage survival kit to keep us happy when weariness kicks in over the weekend. The recipe? Aerin Lauder Lip Conditioner, Little Chloe EDP, Lanolips Hand Cream and the amazing Emergen C Sachets.
