Favourite Fashion Week Makeup Looks NOT to try at home
London Fashion Week has been and gone (as has New York Fashion Week for A/W 12) and blogs have been full of the best hair, best looks, best blah-di-dah. I’ll be honest with you- most makeup looks ARE not wearable and pretending they are is essentially saying that if you just wear a touch of nude lip gloss and a blue eyeliner you’ll have recreated the look of the Prabal Guring show (see above). You WON’T have, you’ll just have been ‘inspired’ by it and that’s pretty blah.
So, I offer you no ‘how to’s’ or ‘use such and such to recreate this’, instead I offer you unashamed ‘Wow To’s‘, my version of what I think is simply beautiful makeup wise, and whilst it won’t be a ‘trend’, it’s eye candy to those who love makeup artistry.

Click through for green girls, blue eyes and orange brows. Yes, REALLY.
OMG, whoever had to paint this model in glitter is probably still green and sticky now. It’s a weird Wicked Witch of the East vibe going on here…
Prada A/W 12
Now you’ve ogled these images I think you’ll agree they all have two things in common.
- A prodigious use of blue on the eyes- seems there may be a blue shadow backlash after all, and…
- None of these looks are remotely wearable- for day or night. Remember it’s called FASHION WEEK not beauty week, so whilst we can admire the artistry,these aren’t really designed for people to WEAR, they are just part of the artwork.
