The Best Beauty Looks from LFW's Spring 2018 Runways
Fashion month is well underway, and the next stop will take you to the other side of the pond. From elaborate hairstyles to editorial and out-of-this-world makeup creations, London Fashion Week never has a shortage of must-see beauty looks, and this year was no different. At Versus by Versace, the great Charlotte Tilbury created eye makeup inspired by Kate Moss and the late Amy Winehouse, while silver-flecked glitter lips showed up at Shrimps. And like the big apple, countless designers chose to have their models showcase their own natural hair textures.
The Look: Lit-from-within skin was paired with a full beige lip. Drawing on inspiration from Kate Moss and Amy Winehouse, makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury gave each model a unique cat eye using Rock 'n' Kohl Liquid Eyeliner Pencil in Bedroom Black ($27; bloomingdales.com) along the waterline, smudging it with Vasline, and then applying a thick straight flick with Bedroom Black and The Feline Flick Liquid Eye Pen in Panther ($30; nordstrom.com). To create even more of a graphic, punk vibe, models squeezed their eyes shut after application.
The Look: Makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury gave models a fresh rorange lip look using Hot Lips in Tell Laura ($34; nordstrom.com), while some models wore outfit-coordinating scarves tied in hair that was pulled off their faces in low braids.
The Look: Andrew Gallimore, the UK Makeup Artist Ambassador for Nars, created three different dramatic eyeliner looks for the models walking the runway. Some wore midnight blue winged liner, while others had their eyes rimmed with Nars Black Valley Eye Paint ($26; nordstrom.com) and red lip liner. Finally, the third look featured graphic shapes and purple eyeshadow.
The Look: Side-parted hair secured with a single bobby pin and simple black lower liner, created with Nars Black Valley Eye Paint and Black Moon Eyeliner ($24; nordstrom.com).

The Look: Each model wore a unique look created by Eugene Souleiman, Wella Professionals Global Creative Director and ghd Fashion Week Ambassador, but the goal was for it to look raw and undone. To create the messy waves and "broken movement" like supermodel Gigi Hadid wore, Souleiman reached for the ghd curve soft curl iron ($199; nordstrom.com). As for the makeup, each model waltzed down the runway wearing trending graphic cat eyes.
The Look: Metallic charcoal gray shadow, tight-lined eyes, and glowing skin.
