September was definitely all about the fashion shows. Everything started in New York, then one by one London, Milan and Paris took the stage, as expected!
Confession time: there are two particular fashion shows I can’t wait to see every season: the first one is from Dior, because I adore Peter Philips’ work ( you can read the full article on the makeup he proposes for next spring here ) and the other one happens in London and it is – as you all might have guessed, the Burberry show.
This year I fell in love with the so unusually bright colours and prints in the Burberry clothing collection, with those amazing monogrammed trenches ( a new service to customize your favourite Burberry pieces ) and, of course, with the makeup proposed for the upcoming S/S 2015 season by Wendy Rowe, the Artistic Cosnultant for Burberry and Makeup Artist Extraordinaire.
This makeup is already known by now as Wendy Rowe’s Nude Beauty and it is as simple and minimalist as I like it, but bold at the same time because she exquisitely combined a bold deep red lip with a honey-bronzed radiant skin. So unusual for a Spring look and on the other side of the spectrum from the soft pastels we are used with! But the makeup complimented the clothing collection so well and it is so easy to use, and above all so easy to recreate.

As you can see the particularity of this makeup is that the each product is meticulously placed on the face in thin layers, very well blended to avoid it looking “cakey” and the final result to be a natural sun kissed look.
Besides that no mascara was used. It seems like since Peter Philips stopped using mascara for the A/W 2014 Dior Couture Fashion Show this spring ( see post here ), this became a real trend amoung the big fashion names. That’s why they call it minimal makeup anyway!
Nonetheless, Burberry came out with two amazing mascaras that I’m currently testing and, of course, I will write a review about them very soon!
What do you think about this look? Would you go bold for spring or you’ll stick up to your favourite pastels?
See you soon, beautiful!
