Major Makeup Moments of London Fashion Week

Make way for these eye-catching LFW trends.

Emerging from the exciting runway shows and street style from London Fashion Week's Spring/Summer 2022 agenda, the beauty looks were undeniably daring. Doubled up eyeliner, metallic lips and eyelids, foundation less-skin, glossy face makeup and bold lips were some of the standout trends. Whilst London’s Week of Fashion didn’t see an entire return to physical shows, the virtual programs did not falter the makeup trends from coming in hot. It’s predicted these eccentric and seemingly unconventional makeup moments will filter into daily makeup regimes. The Team have selected our favourite makeup trends from the catwalks, showcases and screens of LFW that are bound to grace the streets all over the world.

Metallic Makeup

Despite the lack of metallic garments on this year’s runways, there was no shortage of metallic makeup from the eponymous label, Osman Yousefzada.

Every model that walked Osman’s Spring/Summer 2022 runway show was doused in metallic lipstick, eyeshadow and highlighter.

The luxury womenswear brand didn’t draw the line at silver and gold metallics- we spotted shimmery rose gold eyelids, glittery violet lips and sparkly sage green brow bones.

Napoleon Perdis’s Color Disc in the shade Days of Disco is sure to satisfy your metallic needs.

Packed with pigment, this little pot of eyeshadow blends effortlessly and boasts a buildable formula.

The vibrant olive-green shade is the perfect colour pop!

A fine line of gold eyeliner is an easy way of introducing metallic makeup into your regime.

NYX’s Long Lasting Liner Stick in Gold Plated is all of the proofs – waterproof, smudge proof and fade proof, proving 36 hours of metallic magic.

Gloss on Everything

Gloss on Everything

David Koma’s semi-submerged swimming pool runway meant only one thing – his models just had to be covered in ‘wet-look’ gloss.

Faces were illuminating in every light, lips shining like a disco ball and cheekbones were higher than ever.

The models also had their fringes swept to one side, with hair sticking to their skin, giving off a ‘swimming pool chic’ vibe.

We understand that this wet hair look isn’t for everyone, so we’ve chosen products that make it easy to mimic the glossy look in your everyday routine.

The ICONIC London’s Illuminator is the crème-de-le-crème of liquid highlighters – it’s super concentrated and doesn’t contain chunks of glitter rather iridescent pigment to create a glow from within.

If glass-like lips is your calling, M.A.C’s Clear Lipglass is the wonder product for you.

If you’re feeling bold, swipe the high-shine gloss over the top of your favourite eyeshadow. It sure does pack a punch!

Double the Liner

What could be more fun, feminine, and sexy than a sharp eyeliner flick? Two sharp eyeliner flicks – of course!

RIXO’s S/S22 models are paving the way for the double liner flicks; a new makeup trend that we are absolutely here for!

Underneath the regular, but nonetheless chic and sexy, black liner was a thick line of coloured liner in hues of forest green and sky blue.

A good place to start with this beauty trend is a liquid liner that promises easy application, no smudges or runs and adds necessary drama!

We love Stila’s Stay All Day WaterProof Liquid Line available in a range of colours purely because of the fine, pointed applicator and its guarantee of longevity.

For the second flick, pay homage to the Rixo models and sport a vibrant, eye-catching colour.

Jane Iredale’s Eye Pencil Crayons are made from conditioning oils and waxes, meaning they blend like a dream and come in every colour of the rainbow.

Foundation-less Skin

Foundation-less Skin

It seems every Fashion Week in any big city, there are a handful of designers that reject makeup and focus solely on the fashion garments.

At this year’s London Fashion Week Supriya Lele, EFTYCHIA and REJINA PYO all saw their models sporting foundation-less skin.

Whether designers are doing this to make an active statement of outright refusal or they simply prefer natural looking skin, the team at Monde believes fresh skin will always be in fashion.

Let’s be honest though, having spot-free skin, bag-free under eyes and a glowing complexation all year round is likely unachievable and almost impossible.

Sometimes a little concealer is all anyone needs to perfect and even the skin tone and hide any spots or blemishes.

Chantacaille’s Le Camouflage Stylo Concealer is made for the under eyes – it’s crease proof, long-wearing and acts to smooth and refine the skin.

If you are wanting all-over coverage opt for a tinted moisturizer.

We love Laura Mercier’s Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer available in 16 colours.

Bold Lips

It’s no surprise that bold, moody lips have made their way back to the catwalk at this year’s London Fashion Week, but they’ve also snuck into the virtual runway sphere too.

Vivienne Westwood’s S/S22 video saw models donning unsuspecting lipsticks in shades of bright orange, lilac purple and more conventionally, the most scarlet red of scarlet red lipsticks.

If opaque, loud lipsticks are up your alley M.A.C’s Love Me Liquid Colour in any colour is the lipstick for you.

KNWLS had a different definition of bold – with their models sporting ombre lips from matte orange to electric blue transitioning into a sky blue.

Opt for Ere Perez’s Beetroot Lip Tint for a subtle ombre lip look.

Whilst Supriya Lele went with foundation-less skin they certainly made a statement with the lipstick choice.

The models were wearing the deepest shade of berry lipstick, with a high shine gloss over the top.

To imitate this lip look, try Ciaté London’s Glitter Storm Lipstick in the shade Elektra.
