See you next Season!
Here we are behind the scenes at Vauxhall Fashion Scout, during London Fashion Week. Tell us which make-up looks you like the best.
Well we can’t quite believe it ourselves but the penultimate day of Vauxhall Fashion Scout SS/13 is already upon us! But before the shows come to a close tomorrow we did manage to catch up back stage with Head Make-up Artist Lan Nguyen-Grealis who gave us an exclusive on this season’s must-have beauty trends and products, as well as sharing hints and tips to help make sure we stay bang on trend this Spring/Summer.
How do you decide on a make-up look for each show? For each show the make-up is unique to the designer. The overall feel of the collection and the colours behind it will help me dictate what the best makeup look should be - it is all about the character of the model and what she is representing. I do lots of research prior to the show and the team comes together to decide and test the look, sometimes it can take days of preparation to decide!
Where do you find your inspiration? I find my inspiration through the designer, hairstylists, books, paintings, references from other shows and of course mainly through what products are available out there at the moment - the colours you have can sometimes dictate what you can achieve. I’m always looking for innovative products to experiment with. Together all these elements inspire me.
What are the top five make up trends you are forecasting for spring summer 2013?
What is the essential must-try make up trick for spring summer 2013? The must try essential this season is to apply strong kohl pencil followed by eyeshadow directly on top of the line and smudged out for natural smokey eyes.
What is the feature which is going to be most in focus for spring summer make up? The focus is going to be more on eyes. Whether the shape is round or angular, it’s about perfection in application of the product on the face
Top 5 ‘Make-up Saviours’
Our new beauty crush is on Colour Crush!
Today was more chilled at Vauxhall Fashion Scout after the hectic schedule of the last two days. Nonetheless still super exciting as the new Colour Crush eye colour collection launching in Spring 12 continued to wow the fashion pack in London. Head Make-up Artist Lan Nguyen-Grealis mixed brights with a geometric shape and cheeky flick for the Ekaterina Kukhareva SS13 show, which drew inspiration from the 60’s fashion icon Brigitte Bardot. The mood was happy, care free, glamorous and sexy.

Following the inspirational creations of yesterday’s designers, the ‘Ones To Watch’ kicked off day two of Vauxhall Fashion Scout to another full house. Guests swarmed to Great Queen Street, WC2B to see the collections of four talented designers - Charlotte Simpson, Hana Cha, Hellen Van Rees and Ming Pin Tien.
From runway to real-life; head make-up artist Lan chose a natural look to complement the Ones To Watch designs, easily transferable off the catwalk to be achieved at home. A natural, fresh base was created using our new All-In-One BB Cream, contoured cheeks using the new All-In-One Cheek Colours and nude understated lips.
But the highlight of the day was the preview of the new Colour Crush in Berry Cherry eye shadow launching next Spring, which featured in Ji Cheng’s show.
