London Fashion Week: Revlon at Whistles

I am a huge fan of Whistles as a brand, so for this to be the first show on my #RevlonReporter hit list was really exciting. Then to realise that the show was going to be held 33 floors above the city in the tower that houses both Sushi Samba and Duck and Waffle…so some pretty spectacular views of my beloved London… It’s fair to say I was looking forward to this one.

So I headed back stage to check out the looks – in contrast to the chaos and cramped space behind the Somerset House catwalk space, the open floor of the 33rd floor of Heron Tower was a dream. Beyond just looking over London from all angles, it also meant that I didn’t feel like I was getting in everyone’s way like you can so backstage in the smaller spaces. It felt much calmer – which was perfect for such a cool and collected brand really.

So what about the looks- this was one of the first of a number of 90s inspired looks. Described as ’90’s Rave Cherub’ – the makeup look is young and fresh, with glowing pinky cheeks, but in a slightly undone way. Paired with strong, but bushy brows and no mascara. No mascara was definitely a trend all over the catwalks that I saw. Not a look ill personally be going for as I love a bit of lash action! But I do absolutely adore the fresh glowy cheeks from this make-up look. This was created sing Revlon’s Photo Ready Cream Blushers for that perfect flushed, dewey look. The brows were filled in using some cooler toned shadows from a neutral Revlon Colourstay eyeshadow palette. The skin glow was dialled up a notch with the Revlon Skinlights Highlighters.

Then in contrast to the ‘rave cherub’ faces – Jenny Longworth was creating a really ladylike polished look using the ultimate in classic nail colours ‘Revlon Red’. This was painted on hands and feet and topped with a super glossy top coat so they really shine. What I liked best about this look was the contrast and clash between the pinky shades in the makeup and the clothes from Whistles (baby pink and blue are looking to be the top colours next season- with bright blue not far behind!)

If you haven’t got Revlon Red in your collection I really recommend it – Revlon polishes are really fab quality (their shade ‘Vixen’ is my all time favourite shade) and Revlon Red is as pure and classic a red as you can find. I can totally see why it was chosen for a ladylike look for the Whistles Show.

The collection had some great pieces in – definitely one of the most wearable of #LFW!

    I really liked this insight of LFW, the highlighter looks really nice and I am in love with red nails. Might have to pick up some baby blue things now too!

    Revlon Red is such a lovely shade, my Mum has it on her nails right now and it’s just the perfect classic red!
