London Fashion Week is well underway, and this year, it's not just the best outfits that we've been scouting out on the streets of the capital. We've noticed that along with some new season style inspiration, the fashion set has been bringing their A-game when it comes to beauty looks too.
There's a definite theme this season, with beauty falling into two distinct camps: rebellious punk and polished and pared-back. Power brows have been replaced by thin arches (or ones that are barely there at all), and skin looks more matte than previous seasons. When it comes to hair, we're seeing plenty of natural texture alongside statement colour, and accessories continue to rule the roost.
If there's one major takeaway, though, it's that London isn't playing by the beauty rules. Scroll down to take inspiration from some of our favourite looks.
Beauty Notes: Bleached strands are given a fresh lease on life with a chic head scarf tied at the top of a mid-height ponytail. The deep berry lips provide a punk edge.
Beauty Notes: An off-duty model takes her Studio 54 glitter eyes off the Halpern runway and onto the streets of London.
Beauty Notes: The flushed cheeks and berry-bitten lips remind us of the fresh countryside look that we saw backstage at Molly Goddard yesterday.
Beauty Notes: Pink and red continue to have a major beauty moment. Here, matchy-matchy goes up a level with magenta strands and a claret lip times two.
Beauty Notes: Bangs and a bob can be hard to maintain separately, let alone together. This choppy cut looks effortlessly cool and glossy. Extra beauty points for the cute satin headband.
Beauty Notes: This is dressing up done right. Matte orange lips and a pairing of pearly barrettes keep the look playful rather than pristine.
Beauty Notes: This look is a major nod to the punk era. Keep the skin matte and the lipstick dark. This is an antithesis to the millennial fondness for "glow."
Beauty Notes: A dramatic Ariana-style high ponytail meets meets natural skin for a seriously fresh-faced beauty look.
Beauty Notes: Flyaway curls, barely there brows and red lips give us major Vivienne Westwood vibes.
Beauty Notes: Sometimes, beauty is about being pared-back, but other times, it's about taking an unedited approach. We love the two-toned bob, feline flick and burgundy lips with this all-neon outfit.
