The Best Hair and Makeup Moments From London Fashion Week 

Charlotte Knowles: Crystal Tattoos

Butterflies and graphic lines were bedazzled all over models’ skin by makeup artist Thomas de Kluyver to create twinkling temporary tattoos — all in typical body art designs. We can easily picture Euphoria‘s Maddy trying this look out in season two.

Bora Aksu: Purple Lips

Underneath see-through, mask-like white veils, smudged vibrant lilac lipstick peeked through on models’ lips at Bora Aksu’s runway show. (The Smashbox Be Legendary Cream Lipstick in Tabloid is a close match to try at home.) Makeup artist Janeen Witherspoon swiped on pinks and reds, too, while hairstylist Daniel Martin created looks based on each model’s natural hair texture.

Erdem: Flushed Cheeks and Headbands

For the rosy cheeks on the runway at Erdem, makeup artist Jane Richardson layered Nars’ Exhibit A Blush over a liquid blush for a dimensional flush. She also brushed up brows to complement the softness of the look.

Hairstylist Anthony Turner, on the other hand, wrapped a white ribbon around updos to create the look of stacked headbands.

Halpern: Purple and Burgundy

We’ve never thought of pairing glossy black cherry lips with lavender eye shadow, but makeup artist Terry Barberon made an excellent case for the unexpected color combination for Halpern’s lookbook. (Barberon does have a knack for making us approach makeup in new ways.) Hairstylist Sam McKnight took the playful look to the next level by creating a sleek-yet-spiky bun.

Vivienne Westwood: Curly Pigtails

One of the many looks in Vivienne Westwood’s spring 2021 lookbook featured voluminous, curly pigtails tied up by hairstylist Lyndell Mansfield. Ultrathick, black-winged eyeliner drawn on by makeup artist Isamaya Ffrench kept the model’s look from appearing too childish and more on the edgier side.

Bethany Williams: Primary Colors

Makeup artist Rebecca Davenport played off of the fun colors of Bethany Williams’ collection when adding primary colors of candy-apple red and cobalt blue to the lips and lids of the models for her lookbook. The rest of the look was kept simple to let the bright swaths be the focus of their faces.
