& How To Recreate The Look
Backstage at Fashion Week is the place to be. The models, the clothes, the makeup and not to mention the skilled makeup artists like Estée Lauder’s Makeup Ambassador Lynsey Alexander. Aside from fashion, the makeup is always a hot topic. Whether you’re a softer face as seen at J.W. Anderson or the other side of the spectrum and loving the dramatic leaf eyes as seen at Isa Arfen, there’s always something for everyone to lust over. I loved the natural looks at Roksanda and the pink sting lips at Temperley London. But most of all I loved the looks at Joseph (Estée Lauder) and Charlotte Simone (Estée Edit).
Soft, natural, peachy. Estée Lauder was once again the proud sponsor for JOSEPH at London Fashion Week. The concept highlighted the contrast between the idealised masculine and feminine. It’s 90’s inspired, minimal and focuses on texture. “This look is all about skincare rather than makeup. The art of no-makeup makeup is that the model has to look raw but still beautiful” – Lynsey Alexander, Estée Lauder UK Makeup Ambassador.
Lynsey began by prepping the models skin with Micro Essence which acts as a liquid exfoliator, removing any dry skin ahead of applying makeup.
Next, Revitalizing Supreme+ before applying Double Wear 3 Minute Priming Mask where in just 3 minutes skin is primed with the exact amount of moisture it needs for makeup that looks smooth, radiant, even toned and stays in place longer. Then, the Illuminator Radiant Perfecting Primer + Finisher is used all over the face.
For a sheer wash of colour Lynsey used Double Wear Nude Cushion Stick and then added Brow Now Volumizing Brow Tint to achieve natural, fuller looking brows. Despite the no-makeup makeup look, Lynsey added the Pure Colour Envy Matte Lipstick in Covetous Nude to the cheeks for blush and blended into the eyelids to add a little colour. Keep lips bare with a touch of Mattifier Shine Control Perfecting Primer + Finisher patted over the lips to take away any shine. To finish, Advanced Night Repair Mask-in-Oil over the make up to lock in the moisture and add to the radiant finish.

This season, Charlotte Simone breathed new life into her collection using beautiful models with zangy shades of red, pink and orange.
Signature stripes and a nod to the 90’s make this season her most playful yet with the forever focus of re-inventing the scarf.
Estée Edit sponsored the show, used exclusively to create the final look designed by makeup artist Lucy Joan Pearson.
To create a sun-kissed base skin was bronzed and illuminated with Estée Edit Beam Team Bronze. Then the Estée Edit Flash Illuminator was worked into skin alongside The Barest Bronzer to give a soft, natural glow. Lips and brows were kept natural and for the eyes Estée Edit Mattified Lipstick in ‘Maybe Later’ was used to create a flash of pink, adding a playful element while looking modern and fresh. Estée Edit Up & Out Double Mascara finished off the look.
