Bold lip and statement brows add to natural makeup trends

Bold lip and statement brows add to natural makeup trends
While natural makeup and nude colours have been a major feature of London Fashion Week, one of the other trends to emerge is statement lips and strong eyebrows.

Makeup artist Pat McGrath created the look for the Issa show, combining the strong pout and heavy eyebrows with 60s-style eyes and a flick of liner, in a nod to Jackie Onassis.

The statement brow is a trend that beauty expert Bobbi Brown also recently identified in an interview with the Daily Mail.

Ms McGrath explained to The Sun that perfect skin is the basis for the 60s-style look, so women need to make sure they've got a good foundation in their natural makeup bag.

She swept a thick stroke of eye liner across the lid, using it to extend and enhance the shape of the eye, and combined this with almond shadow.

Ms McGrath also told the newspaper that she used a pale liner on the inner, lower lid to illuminate the eye whites.

A ruby-coloured natural lipstick is needed to finish off the look, she said.
