'Boring' Wasn't In The Beauty Vocabulary Of The Brands At London Fashion Week

Many words can be used to describe all the beauty looks that we saw being showcased on the runways of London Fashion Week, and 'boring' definitely wasn't one of them.
1. Artful cut crease (Victoria Beckham)
When the models from Victoria Beckham strutted down the runways, they were not only parading the new offerings of the celeb’s namesake label for the first time, but also her newly-launched vegan, cruelty-free makeup line. Model He Cong was wearing an artful striking blue cut crease drawn with the Smoky Eye Brick in Royal. 2. Plaits, Please (Bora Aksu)
At Bora Aksu, school girl braids were cool again. 2. Plaits, Please (Bora Aksu)
And even with a tousled top. 3. Real and raw faces (Christopher Kane)
“This season’s inspiration is sexy meets nature. The girls have gorgeous skin and feel cool and a little bit feral with bushy brows and a berry lip stain,” said Lucia Pieroni for Nars Cosmetics. 3. Real and raw faces (Christopher Kane)
For a fierce boy brow look, she used the brand’s Brow Perfector to further deepen the colour of the brows, then the Oural Brow Gel to hold the brow hairs up. 4. Wind-blown hair (Fashion East - Yu Han Wang)
And if you’re annoyed the next time the wind blows your hair into a hot mess, remember that you and a model from the cool Yu Han Wang once had the same look. 5. Cloud-tipped french nails (Fashion East - Yu Han Wang)
The next time your nail technician asks for your preferred nail shape at your next nail appointment? Answer with ‘cloud-shaped’, because after seeing these nails from Yu Han Wang, we’d bet that your regular square- or almond-shaped nails just don’t cut it anymore. 5.

6. Disco dancing (House of Holland)
This look is very reminiscent of ’70s disco colours, David Bowie, Coachella festival looks and also a slept-in messy look after a night out of dancing. The runways of House of Holland saw similar holographic glittery eyes which ranged from purple to green colours, crafted with Mac Cosmetics’ products. Aptly, the collection was named “Dance The Pain Away”. 6. Disco dancing (House of Holland)
7. Futuristic eyes (Matty Bovan)
Seems like the eyes are the windows to the future, what with the futuristic-looking eye looks spotted at Matty Bovan. Comprising of a deconstructed line across the eyes and a metallic silver inner corner highlight, this look was brought even further with the inclusion of an iPad-sized magnifying shield. 7.

The look also went with a granny floral-print doggy cone. 8. Elaborate updos (Pam Hogg)
Bigger hair is always better hair. Judging by the numerous voluminous updos that were showcased, that’s what Pam Hogg’s runway was trying to tell us. 8. Elaborate up-do's (Pam Hogg)
9. Graphic black eyes (Halpern)
Brought to us by Isamaya Ffrench, graphic cat eyes were the centre of attention at Halpern while the rest of the face was kept bare. 10. Punk princess (Molly Goddard)
At Molly Goddard, wearable versions of the iconic ’80s punk look – featuring kissed kohl lips and single-lined eyebrows – caught our eyes. It looks like what a Riot Grrrl would be seen in if she held a desk job.
