Day 2 of London Fashion Week went off with a bang! Filming with my company Couture Communications was really fun we have been filming for Grazia and L'Oreal Paris. We started out at the fabulous Topshop Unique show, which was held at the mind blowing and beautiful Old Eurostar terminal at Waterloo. There the hair was an afro explosion created by Paul Hanlon for Bumble and Bumble with hair prepped in a figure of 8 and pins and then brushed out with lots of extensions added to create the angelica halo hair effect. Dyed pieces were placed into the hair to add splashes of colour like pink and lavender very Lady Gaga if you ask me. I also loved the patent red lip created by Hannah Murray at the show you can create the look at home by using a red lipstick and layering on top a cherry red gloss with no liner.
The second show of the day was Charles Anastase, which was held at the Old Sorting Office on New Oxford Street. The entrance looked like some ravers had crashed in and threw some shapes at a house party. Once through the doors it was like Narnia as the glamourous stage looked like a garden party and backstage was bustling with people screaming models walking in an hour late and general fashion madness. Lyndell Mansfield for L'Oreal Professionnel and Sally Branka for MAC created the look. A blunt fringe was cut onto wigs and the look was like the hair was washed and left to dry and very easy breezy. I fell in love with a new MAC lip colour out in Spring called Good to be bad. It's the perfect glossy dark raspberry shade and looks good on all skin tones ( for real ) and looks amazing on black skin tones. When dabbed on the lips it created a beautiful stain and made the girls look like
"they were eating cherries or kissing all night", says Branka. Please beauty gods well MAC send me one as soon as it comes out. People you need to have this lipstick in your life. I will keep you posted on all the gossip tomorrow!
