London Fashion Week S/S ’12: Backstage with Nicole Farhi’s coral pouts and gleaming skin
Thu, 22 September 2011 12:25PM
Brace yourselves, Primps, for you are about to witness possibly the most beautiful spring makeup you’ve ever laid your peepers on – Nicole Farhi’s London Fashion Week S/S ’12 look.
Yes, that’s a big call, and yes, you may be thinking, “As if, Cherie! You’re bananas”, but when you combine gleaming, luminous skin with subtly chiselled cheeks, bare eye lids and lashes, brushed-up brows and bright corally watermelon lipstick applied in a precise way, you get the ultimate beauty look.
You can try and argue; you can try and convince me otherwise, but my opinion will not budge. I mean, even Nicole Farhi’s sleek ponytails are perfection…

Stunning. Fresh. Summery. Beautiful. Wearable. Yep, that’s exactly what this magnificent – and possibly the best ever – Fashion Week makeup is. Don’t deny it; you know it’s true.
TIPS FOR RECREATING THIS LOOK:
- Opt for a sheer foundation and mix it with some illuminator before applying to your face. This will ensure you’ve got an all-over glow.
- Use a clear mascara to brush your brows upwards, and if you’re crying out for some eye lash definition, use it on your lashes, too.
- Apply your lip colour with a lip brush. This will help you get that defined edge you see up there, and then finish with a light dusting of translucent powder to set the lipstick and give it a slight matte finish.
Is this or is this not the most amazing look?
Are you in love with that lip hue like I am?
What do you think of the bare eyes trend? No one is using mascara this season.
