Backstage Beauty: Burberry’s Runway Beauty Was Almost Completely Natural

Taking the whole concept of the no-makeup makeup to brand new heights. See how the look was created straight from Burberry's set in London.
|

Fashion loves a good no-makeup makeup look. Everyone loves a good no-makeup makeup look. Used to describe a look so au naturale, thanks to careful and clever makeup choices, the no-makeup makeup look is effortless to the highest degree – though anyone who has ever tried to perfect it will tell you that the technicalities may be far from effortless – the de facto for many designers who prefer runway makeup that won’t distract the audience from the clothes.

Burberry has a thing for runway looks that we’d love to copy. Remember the wine-stained lips from last spring? The glitter tears of last fall? For their latest shindig at Old Sessions House, Burberry went for natural. Like, really natural. Of all the no-makeup makeup looks we’ve seen through the seasons, Burberry is officially the most deserving of the title.

We popped by backstage to see how it was all created. First, skin is prepped, but only very minimally. Just a hint of foundation and concealer. Freckles and even eye-bags were left almost alone. Brows were barely filled in as well. Lids and the under-eye were smoothed over slightly with Burberry’s Face Contour. Finally, a little powder to keep things matte – because the regular human does not wake up with dewy skin – and a light layer of sheer rosy pink Lip Contour on the lips. No mascara, no eyeliner, no contouring.

Now, the final step is our favourite of the lot. The same lip colour is lightly patted onto the under-eye region, further accentuating the natural redness and dark rings under the eyes. Burberry’s beauty statement of the season is as natural, honest and real as it gets, imperfections and all. See some of our snaps below, then shop some of the products straightaway. (The runway pieces are already available online, by the way. See now, buy now, ladies and gentlemen.)
