Once again London has been buzzing with the excitement of London Fashion Week as the stunning trends for SS15 were unveiled. This season yet more Make-Up Artists chose to use our natural skin care products on models at some of the city’s top shows, attended by industry insiders such as Alexandra Shulman, British Vogue’s Editor-in-Chief.
Alex and Caroline, our PR Manager and Assistant, were lucky enough to get invites to the HEMYCA, 1205 and Shao Yen shows which had their skincare sponsored by Balance Me, and kicked off London Fashion Week with a bang of beautiful skin care and stunning designs to look forward to next season. Yes, we have decided that it is possible to be excited for summer 2015 already, simply delve into our show reports over the next few days to find out why.
Declared by Vogue as “one of fashion’s finest up-and-coming designers” and The Daily Telegraph as “the UK’s most sought after new designer”, we were not disappointed by the fusion of Italian timeless elegance with a contemporary British edge that adorned this show and celebrated the roots of the designers. Each piece explored structural silhouettes, precision tailoring, exceptional quality and pops of playful colour. This was entirely reflected in the skin care which showcased structured cheekbones, dewy highlights, a smooth, flawless finish to skin and a flash of mint green to the eyes. Dani Guinsberg, lead Make-Up Artist for HEMYCA says that “HEMYCA’s range for spring/summer 15 is bright, fresh, youthful but sophisticated and that’s what we tried to reflect in the make-up with a playful element.”
Want to recreate this fresh, playful look yourself? Follow Dani Guinsberg’s step-by-step process of how she created this subtle showstopper: “All skin was prepped with Balance Me Radiance Face Oil, Balancing Face Moisturiser and Shine On Tinted Lip Salve in Rose Blush. Where needed we used the BB Natural Perfection Cream and concealer and swept lashings of bronzer across faces to give that sun-kissed sheen to the skin. Using Bobbi Brown we drew careful fine eyeliners with bright mint green and applied Balance Me Tinted Lip Balm to lips to give that just out of the swimming pool effect.”
Dubbed ‘dewy skin in a bottle’, Radiance Face Oil is bursting with ingredients to feed and nourish the skin. Amazonian Buriti Nut Oil is rich in essential fatty acids, which help improve skins firmness, hydration and tone. Rosehip Fruit Oil addresses uneven skin tones and pigmentation, while Yarrow and Chamomile Oils have powerful anti-inflammatory and calming properties.
Designed with combination, oily and blemish-prone skin in mind, the Balance Me Balancing Face Moisturiser is made with a blend of healing and balancing ingredients, to deliver optimum hydration to the skin, without blocking pores or irritating any blemishes. Anti-oxidant rich Spruce Knot purifies and balances skin, whilst Aloe Vera and Chamomile calm any redness associated with spots or acne.
BB Natural Perfection SPF 25 offers sheer, hydrating coverage as well as natural protection from the suns UVA and UVB rays. Packed with two different types of Hyaluronic Acid, this BB cream plumps the skin from within and gives an instant shot of moisture. Blackberry Leaf Extract is a powerful antioxidant, which protects from pollution and free radicals, whilst Titanium Dioxide naturally reflects the sun’s harmful rays.
