ILLAMASQUA AT LONDON FASHION WEEK
We’re celebrating another successful season at the AW19 London Fashion Week with our Director of Artistry, Pablo Rodriguez who led a team of makeup artists at six exciting shows, creating makeup looks inspired by the designers’ collections.
Fashion week to me is so exciting as so many creative forces collaborate intensely together in such a short time. Having Illamasqua supporting the designers is a great opportunity for all of us, from the dialogue with designers, stylists and hair dressers to create the final look; to explore what makeup trends are coming up an even test products that are being developed as we speak.
We’ll be talking you through the looks created for each show, what the inspirations were behind the collections and share the products we used so you can get the catwalk look for yourself!
The makeup for Mark Fast’s AW19 show was inspired by 50’s glam (think Doris Day) and included gorgeous pastel pinks and lavender. “Statement eyes paired with pink lips” was the focus of the look according to Pablo. For the eyes Pablo used our Gel Liner, applied as a precise, thick feline flick and Bridget Bardot-inspired false lashes in ‘Captivate‘. “The rest is a monochrome palette in lilacky pinks”, explains Pablo. A stain of soft pink was applied on the lips using Lipstick in ‘Plunge‘, paired with a wash of lilac on the eyelids using Powder Eyeshadow in ‘CanCan‘. Skin was kept as natural as possible, using our Matte Primer as a base, followed by a very light application of Skin Base Foundation in places where the skin needed a little coverage. Finally, Cream Blusher in ‘Laid‘ was dabbed onto cheeks with fingertips to complete the delicate oh-so-pretty 1950’s inspired look.
