If you have already tested out the wearable beauty trends from NYFW, don’t worry, there are more for you to try out. The Fall 2016 shows at London Fashion Week gave us some easy hair and makeup looks that we can actually wear IRL. It doesn’t matter whether you prefer statement eyes or lips, there is a fresh beauty look for you to try. And if you want to make your hair the focus of your beauty look, there are some new options for you to try as well.
Here are five beauty looks from London Fashion Week anyone can wear:
1. Decorated Updo Both the hair and makeup at the Erdem show were very wearable. However, the soft updo with casually placed hair clip is a versatile look that will work for day or night. To get the look, roughly dry your hair with a blow dryer (Eva NYC Almighty Pro-Lite Iconic Hair Dryer, $60). Skip any finishing spray. Next, use a comb (Mason Pearson Rake Comb, $35) to create a side part. Gather your hair into a loose bun and secure with an elastic (H&M 10-Pack Hair Elastics, $2.99). It’s okay if a few layers fall out. You want a few face-framing pieces. Complete the look with a jeweled hair clip (Ashley Williams Fly Crystal Bobby Pins, $65) and a light mist of hairspray (Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Humidity Hairspray, $18).
2. Burgundy Lips The Mary Katrantzou show presented a modern take on the classic red lip. Models’ faces were kept bare save for a splash of matte burgundy lipstick. Start off by applying a BB cream (Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream, $7.21) to even out your skin. Add concealer (Estee Lauder Double Wear Waterproof All Day Extreme Wear Concealer, $25) in any areas that you need it. For your lips, line them with a burgundy lip liner (NARS Velvet Lip Liner in Lanikai, $24) then fill them in. Follow it up with a coordinating lipstick (Smashbox Be Legendary Creamy Lipstick in Witchy, $21). For extra staying power, apply a lipstick sealant (Darci by DiCaprio Lip Seal, $22).

The Topshop Unique show featured a graphic double wing shape. Some models wore it with bold lipstick while others let the eyes be the focus. The nude lights and bold eyes is the easier look to pull off. To recreate it, apply a tinted moisturizer (Bobbi Brown Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15, $46) to your face. Add a light dusting of powder (It Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC+ Airbrush Powder, $35) on your T-zone. For your eyes, use a liquid black eyeliner (bareMinerals Lash Domination Liquid Liner, $19) to draw a cat eye flick on the top and bottom lash lines. Ensure that the entire perimeter of your eyes is evenly covered. Complete the look with a bit of lip balm (Fresh Sugar Nourishing Lip Balm Advanced Therapy, $30).
4. Very Deep Side Part It’s amazing what a difference switching up your part can do. The models at the Antonio Berardi show had very deep side parts with sleek locks. After you blow dry your hair, run a flat iron (CHI Home CA10 1″ Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron, $125) over it to get any waves out. Then use a comb (Mason Pearson Tail Comb, $26) to part your hair so it lines up with the arch of your eyebrow. Take a bit of gel (PerForm Control Styling Gel, $21) in your hands, rub them together, and apply it to your locks. Smooth out any flyaways on your roots then extend it down to your ends.
5. Eggplant Lips The Charlotte Olympia show has numerous beauty looks. One of the standouts was the glossy eggplant lips paired with flawless retro curls. Start off by applying your foundation (MAC Studio Sculpt SPF 15 Foundation, $33) and concealer (Dior Diorskin Nude Hydrating Concealer, $36). Add a bit of highlighter (Sonia Kaschuk Chic Luminosity Highlighter Stick, $11) down the bridge of your nose. For your lips, apply a deep eggplant liner (New Look Pure Color Dark Purple Lip Liner, $4) to the perimeter then fill it in. Go over the look with a coordinating lipstick (Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Shame, $22). Complete the look with a gloss (MAC Clear Lipglass, $15).
