Today, 20 young talents, aged 16-19 years old will showcase their designs at London Fashion Week as part of an outreach project organised by London Fashion Week charity FAD. The charity create industry opportunities for young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. The Fashion Scout team caught up with the hair and make-up teams backstage to see what looks they were creating for the showcase…

At Toni&Guy, models’ hair was blowdried to create a smooth canvas and label.m Dry Shampoo was sprayed into the roots layer by layer to give root lift and texture. hen hair was plaited into a chunky 3D plait until half way down the head and sprayed with label.m Hairspray. The style was covered with a net and hairspray was layered over the net until the plait was rigid enough to lie straight on the head.  Label.m Resurrection Style Dust was sprinkled onto the crown to give dynamic lift and volume.

First of all, brows were brushed with the clear Brow & Lash gel to define the eyebrows and hold them in place.

Eyes were gently patted with concealer to mask any veins or redness, ensuring a smooth and even base for the rest of the eye make-up. The lower rims were lined with a white pencil to brighten up the eyes and make them pop. Eyelashes were kept natural with Brow & Lash gel to enchance them.

Next, BB Cream was blended with the Radiance Highlighter and applied with a foundation brush for a natural and dewy finish. Then, Concealer All-in-One was used on the under-eye area to cover any dark shadows and other imperfections on the face. Powder blusher was lightly swept on for a gorgeous pink glow and Colour Crush Lipstick in Rush of Pink was blended on top to give more depth.

For the lips, Vitamin E Lip Balm was dabbed on to moisturise the lips and provide a smooth base for a coat of Colour Crush Lipstick in colour Sweetheart 210. Pink lipgloss was smudged on top for extra-colour and sheer shine.

Lastly, the model’s face was spritzed with Vitamin E Face Mist to set the make-up and add to the dewy, freshness of the complexion.
