Facehunting at LFW

As Illamasqua likes to stand out from the fashion pack and champion self-expression, we bring you a little something from our guest blogger, Arianne, on the people who inspired us behind the scenes of this seasons LFW…
Twice a year the walls of Somerset House echo with the clacking of high heels on the Cobblestones signalling London Fashion Week. It’s the time of year when the best of British fashion is showcased on and off of the runway. 
I spent the week attending shows and the time in-between sipping double espresso’s and trying to spot the best street styles that London has to offer.
Here’s who we came across…
Try Illamasqua’s Lipstick in Diablo to recreate this sumptuous Autumnal lip

Katherine Zarella wears a fabulous cherry headpiece and told us that her style inspiration comes from Isabella Blow. To recreate this vintage inspired make-up, try Lipstick in Encounter and Precision Ink in Abyss

Inspired by the 40’s and 50’s, Alex Slykova combines the look of these eras with a modern interpretation. He dip dyed hair can be recreated for a fresher, mint shade with Cream Pigment in Bedaub. To perfect your brows like Alex’s, try Illamasqua’s Eye Brow Cake in Thunder.

We loved Caroline Druitt’s fresh look with just the right amount of edge. Use Illamasqua’s Lipstick in Kontrol to get a similar colour on your lips. 

Karina Jones caught our eye with her quirky style which she tells us comes from her love of black and white movies. Her flawless look can be created with our Skin Base foundation and for a rosey flush try Powder Blusher in Chased
Thanks to everyone for lending us their faces!
