The best beauty looks of London Women's Fashion Week FW20

Eyes and nail art as the major protagonists

The best beauty looks of London Women's Fashion Week FW20 Eyes and nail art as the major protagonists

The London Fashion Week Women's FW20 officially opened the season of fashion weeks in Europe, ending today and passing the baton to the highly anticipated Milan Women's Fashion Week.

Just like the previous editions, when it comes to beauty looks there are always those designers who surprise us with breathtaking beauty hacks, and those who don't excite us at all or leave us a little disappointed. It is not always necessary to exaggerate to create a beauty look that works, as Burberry and JW Anderson teach us with their clean and minimalist looks. In this edition, there were also extreme beauty looks: from the childish and "carnivalesque" make-up of Ashley Williams, to the jewelry-masks of Richard Quinn (reference to the iconic masks of Maison Margiela), to the accessories and the somewhat robotic somewhat extraterrestrial looks by DB Berdan. In between clean and extreme, we find the graphic make-up of Halpern, Simone Rocha and Paula Knorr with focus on the eyes, as well as the nail art of Vivienne Westwood and Charlotte Knowles.

And here is a selection, signed by nss G-Club, of the best beauty looks of the London Fashion Week Women's FW20 and some products to replicate them, in a mini shopping guide. Enjoy!



A mix of sacred and profane on Simone Rocha's catwalk. The beauty looks are romantic and picturesque: hair is gathered in braided crowns, and Thomas de Kluyver's make-up focuses entirely on the eyes, with eyelids decorated by metallic textures in different shades. The rest of the face is natural, with the exception of the touch of lip balm to soften the lips of the models, and the nail art that recalls the colors of the eyelids.

Halpern couldn't do without a touch of 70s sparkle on his catwalk. For his FW20 collection, however, instead of glitter he opted for 3D crystals around a single eye for some of the models. The make up artist Isamaya Ffrench applied fragments of pink quartz and other precious stones in different sizes on the models' faces, to surround the eye. Halpern adds to its beauty looks a bold nail art that didn't go unnoticed.

Also for Kiko Kostadinov the focus is on the eyes. The twins Laura and Deanna Fanning choose for their models extra eyelashes (in black or white), not always with "full" effect, but applying extra lengths only in some areas of the arch. The effect is enhanced by slick hair backwards.

The beauty looks of Riccardo Tisci's Burberry are sophisticated, and vary adapting to the models and the garments they are wearing: the make-up is nude, with a slight glossy touch on the lips and eyelids, the eyebrows are neat and thick. Some models wear earrings and jewel-piercings, to give a light point on their face, or elegant extra-large sunglasses.

In the wake of minimalism, hairstylist Anthony Turner chooses to give the models a fresh and clean touch with a simple and delicate hairstyle. The hair is "flattened" and gathered in soft ponytails with a side line, making the models "look like little illustrations, beautiful little drawings", in contrast with the bold volumes of the garments. The complexion of the models is bright but natural, with a pastel glossy touch on the eyes.
