Our backstage pass to London Fashion Week S/S14 gave us access-all-areas to the newest looks in beauty, plus a sneaky take on which models are hot (Cara is queen, but look out for up and coming Swedish model, Tilda Lindstam), the new health drink to sip (swap your coconut water for models favourite, Beauty’in vitamin drinks) and proof that models do eat (bacon butties at Burberry, Red Velvet cupcakes at Matthew Williamson)...
As for the beauty, while the key looks may be a season away (and we’ve only just up-dated our make-up bags for autumn...) it’s good to know which of the looks we now invest in are ‘keepers’ to see us through to spring. The graphic BLACK EYE will still be huge so stock up on liquid, gel and sharp pencil liners, but we will be swapping our autumn dark eye shadows for fresh SPRING PASTELS (think lilac, blue and peach lids). The RED LIP is here to stay, as are HAIR BRAIDS and the fluffier the better. Nails stay school-boy short but swap autumn’s dark polishes for sheer naturals or a classic PILLAR BOX RED.

1 Massage in a nourishing oil (I love Moroccanoil Oil Treatment and sleep in it overnight with a towel on the pillow!).
2 Alternatively, use a pre-shampoo intensive mask and leave on as long as possible; try L’Oréal Professionnel excellent Mythic Oil Masque .
3 Give dull, fluffy hair instant shine with Color Wow Pop & Lock Crystallite Shellac – it’s amazing.
Kate Moss circa 1990s influenced some of the coolest, want-to-wear looks from the spring catwalk. Think caramel skin, undone hair and black eye liner.
