Six make-up looks we loved from the Fashion Week catwalks!


The Fashion Week season is nearly over, with the last of the catwalk shows for spring/summer 2015 taking place in Paris later this week. 

While it's always exciting to find out what trends will be on the high street next season, this year's catwalks were a treasure trove of incredible make-up inspiration too. Some were ones we'll definitely be re-creating at home, while others were just totally bizarre!

Here are a few of the looks we absolutely loved…

1. Blushing beauty
Make-up artists at Pamella Roland used lots of pink cream blusher as part of the collection's "gardens of Kyoto" theme, conjuring up visions of cherry-blossom trees in full bloom. This is a real English rose look which we really love.

2. Intense cat-eye
This is a look we reckon we could rock on a night out! For the Bibhu Mohapatra NYFW show, eyes were dusted with a golden bronze powder, and a black gel liner was used to create prominent flicks. The look was finished with a touch of white liner on the inner eye line. This is a great alternative to a standard smokey eye, as the golden colour really brightens things up.

3. Glitter goddess
Electric Picnic 2015 here we come! Make-up artist Pat McGrath went for a "cosmic rock and roll" theme with the Anna Sui models. Loose gold glitter was dusted above and below the eye line for this flirty look, with just a hit of black liner on the top lid. Easy!

4. Simple elegance
This is what we aspire to look like when we go "all natural" with our make-up, though it never quite goes to plan! A Marie Antionette theme at Alice + Olivia inspired this youthful toned-down look, with highlighter used instead of bronzer for contouring. We adore the pale pink lip gloss, too.

5. Bold warrior
Female samurai warriors were the inspiration for this hard-as-nails look at Hervé Leger. Thick arched brows and thick geometic liner make for a very intense result but it's one we'd be willing to try! Lips were kept totally minimal with some nude cream gloss.

6. The anti-smokey eye
We thought we'd never see baby pink eyeshadow again after age 14, but we have serious envy for this look! Make-up artist Katie-Jane Hughes went for a feminine twist for models on the Yoana Baraschi catwalk, with a bold white flick to really open up the eye. And can we talk about that topknot? Want!
