Alessandra Steinherr’s LFW Beauty lowdown
We caught up with Alessandra Steinherr, Beauty Director at Glamour UK Magazine, to get the latest catwalk trends from London Fashion Week – and the dos and don’ts for the new beauty season.
LONDON FASHION WEEK IS WRAPPING UP – WHAT WILL BE THE KEY BEAUTY TRENDS FOR AW16?
”So far I am loving that deep berry lips and polished matte skin are making a comeback.”
ANY PERSONAL FAVOURITE TRENDS OR DETAILS?
”I love that hair accessories are featuring heavily in lots of the shows.”
WAS THERE ANYTHING YOU WISH YOU’D SEEN MORE OF?
”I would love to see more individuality and models of varying shapes, heights and ages.”
FASHION WEEK MEANS LONG DAYS AND A TIGHT SCHEDULE. WHAT ARE YOUR BEST TIPS AND TRICKS TO MAKE YOUR MAKEUP LAST ALL DAY?
”Make sure you tap and buff your base into the skin so it blends in perfectly and stays put. Also when your makeup is done, spray over with a fixing mist or if you are in a pinch, a thermal water spray – sounds counter-intuitive, but trusts me it keeps your makeup in place for longer.”
GIVE US YOUR BEAUTY DOS AND DON’TS FOR SPRING!
”Do invest in anything blue (mascara, eyeliner, nail polish), it’s the colour for summer. Don’t over style your hair – it’s all about effortless style.”
NAME ONE BEAUTY MYTH YOU WOULD LIKE TO BUST. ‘
”That wearing makeup every day is bad for your skin. It’s not - what's bad is not removing it properly before going to bed.”
WHAT ARE YOUR TOP 3 PRODUCTS FROM THE NEW H&M BEAUTY LINE?
”Powder Blush in Brown Sugar, Matt Lipstick in Red Alert, Buffer and the Bluffer Brush.”
