London Fashion Week AW15: OOTD and Street Style

The time has come for the celebrities, bloggers and people-watchers to gather to celebrate the best of fashion around the sartorial capitals of the world. We managed to visit Somerset House and witness the courtyard in all its glory during London Fashion Week. It was a lot busier than we remembered, and, although we did not have tickets for any shows, it was such a good experience to take photos and see people coming together in honour of British Fashion. We are also really sorry we have not posted in ages, but hopefully the abundance of street style photos will make up for our laziness :)

Grunge Makeup (inspired by Emma Cervin)

As we had not done a tutorial in a while we thought it would be good to show you guys a makeup look which we were inspired by after watching countless videos on Youtube. We couldn't do something too heavy or vampy (the party season has, unfortunately, come to a close) and there was no point in doing too plain of a look so we came across a tutorial by Emma Cervin entitled 'Herion Chic'. We thought it was really cool, quick and easy and we loved the glamorous grungy-ness of it that we decided to try it ourselves (please excuse the weird orange lighting) :P
1. Apply a soft beige eyeshadow on the whole eyelid. Make sure this blends out to give a less pristine feel.
2. Next, apply a burnt orange/warm brown colour to the eyelid. This time, make sure it only blends out to the crease.
3. Apply a darker brown eyeshadow on the edge of the eyelid and on the crease. Once you have done this, blend it out.
4. Taking a dark brown eyeshadow, apply this to the bottom lash line so it is blended and smudgy- this will give off a grungy effect.
5. To finish off the eyes, apply mascara on your upper and lower lashes- make sure they are as spiky and separated as they can possibly be. After, apply a small amount of eyeliner to the upper lash line and eyelid, creating a thin and tiny flick. You can use black eyeshadow and a small brush to that it is not too graphic or dramatic. You can also fill in your eyebrows just to make them more defined and darker, in order to compliment the rest of the look.
6. Line your lips with a beige/pink/orange toned liner, and fill in with a similar pink colour with a red/brown undertone. You can also use a nude/pink tone for a more natural look
7. To finish off, apply a darker foundation or bronzer on your cheekbones to contour, giving a hollow and defined effect to your face.
