Beauty is often inspired by flowers. Just think about all of the floral fragrances or makeup colors named after floral and fauna. The Preen by Thornton Bregazzi Spring/Summer 2017 show at London Fashion Week took a more literal approach by having models walk the runway with actual flowers on their faces.
Makeup artist Val Garland decorated models’ faces, necks, chests and even backs with different dried blooms. Each model had an individual look. Some models had flowers that circled their entire faces while others had blooms that were placed randomly on their foreheads and cheeks. Some models’ lips even got a floral treatment. The dried petals were concentrated on the mouth to produce a lipstick-like effect.
The rest of the face was left very natural so the flowers would be the focus. As for the hair, models’ locks were pinned up which random braided sections left to hang down around the face.
Florals for spring is a classic look, but Preen and Val have managed to put a unique spin on things with this whimsical look. It might not be the most wearable trend that you can rock at work, but it is made for festivals. You’re already unleashing your inner flower child at concerts, so why not finish things off with some actual flowers to go with your floral crown?
