711 1024 Vanity Van

London Fashion Week has officially come to a close, and with it, a whole new set of hair, make-up and nail trends to set the tone for Spring/Summer. From how to elevate a tired hairstyle with staple hair accessories, to how to rock an electric, neon nail, this season’s backstage beauty offerings definitely didn’t fall short. Vanity Van is giving you the ultimate rundown on all of the best hair, makeup and nail moments from the runways, plus our personal favourite beauty looks from London Fashion Week. 

Hair 

In case you haven’t heard, hair accessories are the styling staple to watch out for this season. From puffy headbands, to head wraps, and jewelled hair slides, London Fashion Week was dotted with signature hair accessories, and Simone Rocha is the designer that we all need to thank. The accessorising trend has been gaining momentum over the past few seasons, with Rocha’s SS18 runway playing a huge role in making the effortlessly feminine hair clip coveted by all. With designers such as Michael Kors and Anna Sui taking Rocha’s lead and giving their runway a regal vibe, the hair clip is sure to be a party season staple for us all in the Spring/Summer season.  

London Fashion Week Colin Horgan On/Off X Graphic EyeMakeup

From fresh, glowy skin to nude lips, natural simplicity is usually the go-to at London Fashion Week, but this season, it looks as though the exaggerated look is reigning supreme. With bold shades taking the spotlight on the eyes, this season’s runway looks were nothing but simple. This look from the Colin Horgan On/Off X show during London Fashion week is proving that the bold, graphic eye trend that was all the rage last season is here to stay. Give your everyday eye look a splash of the 80’s whilst keeping the rest of the face natural to create the perfect balance of minimal and daring.

 

Nails

Nail art is always a runway staple, and London Fashion Week has served up a plethora of fresh nail inspiration to obsess over. Neon is always trending in fashion, and now, it’s extending to your manicure. Nail artist, Mei Kawajiri, worked her manicure magic to create this design for the Philipp Plein show. You can achieve this neon nail look with a simple coat of electric gel polish, or if you want to put your manicure skills to the test, try out a daring nail design. Whether you’re searching for something exaggerated, playful, or daring this Spring/Summer, this energising nail trend is perfect for everyone.

The latest Autumn and Winter beauty trends

644 429 Vanity Van

There are many beauty trends that have dominated the catwalks this year, but it’s hard to tell what trends are going to work for you and how to transition them from season to season. Although certain trends can look terrifying, there are ways to pull inspiration from them while still looking subtle and sophisticated.

Block eye colour beauty trendsReturn of the Club Kid

Despite the crisp Autumn months dawning upon us, we are happy to report that bright and bold eye looks are not going anywhere. Although this trend might take you back to the era of the club kid, the classic 80’s leg warmers and spandex will not be making their way back into our wardrobes. From lime green to vivid purples, the graphic eye trend can only be tackled by the bravest of us. Are you brave enough to rock this technicolour trend?

Lash it Up

When you think of an ultra-feminine makeup look, a long, full set of lashes are almost always in the mix. For this season, if you’re going to wear mascara, it’s a matter of all or nothing. Whether you decide to go for a bold makeup look, or opt for natural, feminine beauty, an extra layer of mascara is guaranteed to bring your look to the next level. As long as you wear it with confidence, anyone can pull off this trend.

Statement lipstick beauty trends

Statement Lips

A bold statement lip is always in style, and that isn’t changing as we transition into Autumn. As a true makeup visionary, Rihanna is an avid fan of a vibrant lip, giving us the red lip fantasy we all needed, but didn’t deserve. For those of you looking to pack a punch with your lip colour this autumn, draw some inspiration from Fenty Beauty’s leading lady and paint on that classic red pout. From bright oranges to deep berry shades, statement lip colours are a must-have for your Autumn makeup bag.

Slicked back hair beauty trends

Slicked Back Sophistication

It is no surprise that slicked back hair and slicked side partings have been all the rage this year. Who isn’t a fan of a stylish, wearable and hassle-free hairstyle? Pulled back hair with loose waves has become the epitome of sophisticated, effortless beauty. Plus, if you get caught in the rain, no one will be able to tell the difference. To achieve this look, apply a hair mousse rather than a gel to avoid the dreaded greasy locks look and achieve a smooth, sleek finish.
