GET THE LOOK: Burberry Prorsum SS13
The Burberry SS13 woman just oozed cool – deep red, vampish lips and barely there eyes, we totally loved this look!
Strong eyes and structured eyebrows of seasons past were nowhere to be seen at London Fashion Week this season, as burgundy pouts took centre stage at Burberry. Our attention was immediately drawn to the stunning jawbone of each model, offset by a sheer, smooth complexion. The collection was colourful and sculptural, with a clear focus on rich, vivacious metallics and dégradé jewel tones. Watch the Burberry SS13 show HERE.
The models’ uncomplicated, feminine make-up helped portray their outstanding natural beauty. Fresh, minmal make-up is where it’s at for SS13. Burberry’s Artistic Consultant Wendy Rowe has revealed the products she used to create the look – so there’s no excuse for us not to give it a whirl!
Speaking to Glamour magazine, she said: “This season’s Burberry girl is sassy, cheeky and flirty. The lip was created using a brand new Burberry velvet lip colour called Siren and a little lip liner. Apply liner, brush the lip colour on, pat on and then blot with powder. It’s our first statement red lip.”
The shade of Burberry Lip Velvet appropriately named ‘Siren Red’, launching later this year, was used on every model, paired with ‘Brick Red’ Lip Definer No.5. To achieve the flawless skintone flaunted by the models, Burberry Sheer Foundation should be applied first, followed by Burberry Sheer Concealer, then set with Burberry Sheer Powder.
A touch of colour can be added with Burberry Glow in the shade of your choice (we love ‘Copper Glow’ No.2!), or ‘Light Glow’ – try ‘Earthy Blush’ No.7 for a gorgeous pink flush. As for your eyes, apply a light layer of Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow in the iridescent ‘Gold Trench’ No.4 or ‘Pale Barley’ No.22. For extra definition, apply Burberry’s ‘Golden Brown’ No.6 Eye Definer.

To re-create the look on the high street, Nars Semi Matte Lipstick in Fire Down Below (£17.50 from ASOS) looks beautiful, whist Benefit Brow Zings Brow Shaping Kit (£22.50 from Feelunique) will give your eyebrows oomph. Dior 2 Couleurs Powder Duo Eyeshadow in Bronzy Look (£27.50 from Boots) creates a subtle metallic sheen that will frame your eyes, letting their colour shine through.
The move away from bright fuschias and neons to grown up lips and brows at Burberry was a complete breath of fresh air – we loved it. Cara Delevingne rocked the look with strong dominating brows and wine-stained lips – now we can too!
