LFW: Felicity Brown, AW12 Presentation

On day 1 of LFW, I was already super tired... thanks to a combination of jet lag and a bad cold- but LFW is no time for rest!  I headed back to London where I met with designer Felicity Brown at her east London studio with lead hair stylist, Andrea Martinelli from Hob to discus the hair and makeup look we were creating for her presentation on Saturday.

Here's our finished look on the beautiful model Lenka:

It was great to be part of the team for Felicity's presentation once again and I was very excited to be creating the makeup look for this beautiful collection!  A big thanks to Nina and Gemma who were part of my makeup team on the day.

With the makeup, it was all about understated, natural beauty. We created a flawless complexion, using Clarins Beauty Flash balm to add radiance.

Eyes were enhanced with a flash of Mac pigment in Old Gold, used in the inner corner which complimented the splash of colour used throughout the collection. Lashes were defined and separated with loads of mascara.

On the lips we went for a natural sheen using my favourite Pawpaw Ointment.

Felicity Brown's AW12 Collection was designed with more of a daywear element, progressing away from the couture/evening wear feel of last seasons collection.

With a 60's influence, featuring shift dresses in bold prints  and a colour pallette of autumnal tones such as burnt amber and accents of ink navy and mustard. This collection is very wearable and feminine and could easily translate from day wear to a night out, just by adding heels, lipstick and a deconstructed updo as seen in the presentation.

Stay tuned for more hair info and step by step!
