Beauty’s New Look

By  October 12, 2011

The international shows are now over and while the various cities fight amongst themselves about next season’s timings, we look back at the best beauty looks we will be enjoying next spring/summer…

Hair embellishments at Chanel

Crazy nails: Gareth Pugh SS/12

Avant-garde beauty at Gareth Pugh SS/12

Embellishment beauty at Fendi SS/12

The exaggerated smoky eye at Gucci SS/12

The new red lip backstage at Temperley SS/12

Sequin Eyes:

Forget the metallic eye, for spring/summer 2012 it has been supersized. Try a little gold leaf on your lids a la Fendi to get the focus firmly on your eyes. Who needs fashion?

Nail Art

The more crazy the nail art the better. Go with gothic stripes like Gareth Pugh!

Bold Brows

With different colour stripes through brows at different shows, we love the white ones at Gareth Pugh.

Uber Smoked Eye

Forget the smoky eye with a subtle flick, dramatic raccoon eyes were seen at Gucci (pictured) and Rodarte – andwe LOVE it.  Try it in black or dark blues and greys.

Red lips

It is no great surprise that red lips are in fashion – when are they not? But, as with all seasons, there is a discreet difference. For spring it is ultra glamorous red lips that gleam with gloss.

The Wet Look

Under water was a big theme at the shows – the slick back hair look softened by pearl embellishments at Chanel.
