This season natural skincare has been at the heart of many of the London Fashion Week shows, with the 'New Natural' look of glowing, clean skin, appearing all over the catwalks. Balance Me has gained a loyal following by make-up artists in the know and we sponsored the skincare behind the scenes at three London Fashion Week shows; HEMYCA, Shao Yen and 1205.
Balance Me's PR team Alex and Caroline's final show of London Fashion week was the sublime Shao Yen show at the Granary Building in King’s Cross. Inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s masterpiece Sunflowers the collection used Shao Yen’s signature experimental textiles and sculptured silhouettes alongside distinctive tie-dye techniques in abstract shapes. It was an elegant take on the sleepwear trend; precisely tailored in leather, silks and cottons, with vibrant shades of yellow, nude, white and blue echoing those in the Van Gogh painting.
To give the models their almost dream-like appearance, lead make-up artist Bea Sweet used Balance Me skincare backstage. Bea explains; “The aim of the show was fresh and natural girls with glowing skin and a delicate yellow lined ‘Van Gogh’ inspired eye.” Detail driven eyes, either with sharp geometric lines or bright colour pops of eyeliner, paired with minimalistic, dewy and illuminated skin where also a key trend at shows such as David Koma, Marios Schwab, Kenzo, Narciso Rodriguez and Holly Fulton.
To achieve this look, Bea says; “We prepped the skin with the Balance Me Skin Bright Hydrating Face Mist, followed by the Balancing Face Moisturiser and Wonder Eye Cream. We applied generous amounts of the Rose Otto Intensive Lip Salve to lips and kept the make-up minimal for beautiful natural skin. No mascara, just light coverage where needed, with some matte bronzer, nude kohl and Balance Me Stellar Beauty Balm dabbed along the top of the cheekbones. We finished the look by adding yellow eyeliner around top and bottom of the eyes, not too heavy or thickly applied.”
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.
Our award winning Wonder Eye Cream is packed full of ingredients to refresh, awaken and lift even the most sensitive of eyes. Hyaluronic Acid provides the eyes with a shot of moisture and helps to smooth away fine lines and wrinkles. A blend of Cucumber oil and Witch Hazel calms, brightens and works to reduce puffiness and inflammation.
