Best beauty looks at London Fashion Week

Best beauty looks for Spring/Summer 2009 at London Fashion Week

My god do I love the look at Nicole Farhi for spring 2009. It's just so pretty. Whether you're a tomboy or a girl's girl, long hair or cropped cut, dark or light skin, it'll look great. Really flushed, coral cheeks and matte, berry-stained lips that look like you were just eating really ripe raspberries with healthy, dewy eyes (maybe a swipe of gloss on the lids and mascara on the lashes) with slightly pouffy easy hair. When I was a teenager, this is what I wanted my makeup to look like and, even though my tastes have changed over the years, I still love this look and would be more than happy if I left the house like this in the morning.

And the look at Luella is so fantastically strict yet feminine, regal yet, well, simultaneously Eliza Dolittle pre-transformation. I love the big hair, the quiffs and the total focus on the classic red lips, which is the antithesis of the nude or barely stained lip seen everywhere else for spring 2009. It's cool.
