Daring rich purple lips, smouldering eyes and futuristic matt flawless skin were popular looks among leading make-up artists at On|Off during London Fashion Week.

The head make-up artist at Louise Amstrup’s show, Ayami Nishimura, went for dark, defined eyes and vibrant, glossy plum lips on powdered skin.

For designer Ashley Isham, director of make-up for Maybelline New York Sharon Dowset played around with products, using dark eyeshadow to colour lips.

At Jena Theo’s catwalk make-up artists opted for dark, smokey eyes on a nude base to create a futuristic look. They also painted dramatic, thick black strips across models’ eyes and eyebrows.

Designer Julian J Smith turned the gothic look upside-down by pairing pale, powdered skin with long, vibrant blonde hair.

While at Falguni & Shane Peacock noted make-up artist Alex Bryne used Benefit products to create a rock ‘n roll style with elongated eyes and glossed skin.

Backstage at Bryce Aime stylists created a strong and modern look. Models had frosted, white powdered faces defined by grey cheekbones as well as black stripes across the eyebrow bone.

Breaking away from these emerging trends, designer Lousie Gray painted bright, multi-coloured polka dots on models faces, in keeping with her fun, fresh and colourful collection.

Hair styles included platinum blonde wigs by celebrity hair stylist Lyndell Mansfield, a two-foot graffitied Mohican at Charlie Le Mindu and slicked-backed up-styles. Looks were created using hair brand favourites such as L’Oreal, GHD and Tigi.
