BEAUTIFY: Backstage at J JS Lee SS14

If there was one inescapable trend across both fashion and beauty this season, it was pink. Bright pink lips, tailored pink suits and even pink eyeshadow. One of the first London shows I went to was J JS Lee, which encapsulated a modern and fresh take on the trend perfectly. This is no princess and frills pink, this is powerful pink- straight up.

Get the Beauty look: the MAC make up artists were mixing fuchsia and white lip mix together to achieve that eye popping lip- we were informed that this tone of magenta suits almost every skin tone, so it’s a great one to try at home. It’s a matte lip, so just pop it on your lip and smudge it in with your fingers. Just make sure you use a lip pencil, to stop it from bleeding into your skin.

Leaving the focus on the lips, the skin was healthy and glowing- achieved by a small amount of Face and Body Foundation, and then highlighted (and we mean HIGHLIGHTED) with MAC Cream Colour Base in both Luna and Pearl from the temples to the apple of the cheek and on the nose. With no mascara, this creates a great glossy, almost sporty-luxe effect. Eyebrows were brushed up with MAC Brow Finisher._MG_3774 _MG_3905
