After a busy week of festivities in New York City, including, but not limited to, the VMAs, Met Gala, and New York Fashion Week, models, hairstylists, and makeup artists are heading over the pond for London Fashion Week. Yup, fashion never sleeps.
As designers show off their spring/summer 2022 collections, fun hair and makeup looks are being displayed too. Tassels, magenta, and double-stacked winged liner are just a few examples of the vividness we're seeing on the runway and in lookbooks for LFW.
We rounded up the boldest, brightest, and generally gorgeous looks and put them all in one place for all to enjoy. If you see some looks you want to recreate at home, lucky for you, we recommended some products to help make that happen. You're definitely going to want to grab your closest magenta eye shadow, cream blush, and liquid liners.

Consider the look at Helen Anthony as proof you don't even need to wear foundation to dab on some vivid blush. Dewy, fresh complexions were accentuated with a shocking flush of peach, red, or coral, depending on the model's skin tone. We have a feeling a cream or liquid formula, like Tower 28's Best of Beauty-winning BeachPlease, was tapped onto the apples of their deeply moisturized cheeks to create a jelly-like, sheer wash of color.
Someway, somehow, the glam team backstage at David Koma mastered a look that made getting caught in the rain seem chic. Models with long hair had their bangs styled into a wet look with dramatic side parts and bangs that clung to their foreheads in all the right ways. Their complexions were given a radiant, high-sheen finish to echo their saturated hair. You can mimic the glistening skin with a thick moisturizer, like the Acaderma Better With Age Rejuvenating Rich Cream, and a shimmer-free highlighter balm, such as E.L.F. Electric Mood x Tove Lo Glassy Skin Balm, on the high points of your face, including above the tails of your eyebrows.

Magenta had a major moment at Bora Aksu. Back in June, we predicted the bright pink hue would be a reigning makeup color of 2021 and beyond, and makeup artist Janeen Witherspoon just so happened to dust it onto the outer corners of models' eyes and apples of their cheeks. We're not saying we're psychic, but we're not not saying that.
Hairstylist Daniel Martin even tied magenta silk scarves around their heads to top off the pretty-in-pink aesthetic.

Instead of simply giving ballerinas from the Royal Ballet sleek buns or high ponytails, hairstylist Sam McKnight brought some vibrant tassels into the mix. They flowed out of a braided bun and swirled around as the ballerinas did. Makeup artist Daniel Sallstrom, on the other hand, painted on ultra-sharp brown and white wings spiking outward from both the top and lower lashlines, giving the ethereal look some edginess.
Just below the classic black cat-eye flicks at Rixo, emerald green was drawn on just underneath it for a doubled-up wing. This extra step is a quick and easy way to elevate your everyday look with an unexpected hint of color. Sub in the green for whatever color coordinates with your outfit for the day, and keep the rest of your makeup low-key with a neutral lip color and blush.
