Make Up by HD Brows recently set up backstage at Somerset House to create the ‘Modern Margaret’ beauty look for Shrimps’ London Fashion Week SS15 presentation.

This season, the British fashion brand splashed muted rainbow hues across its signature faux fur outerwear in reference to the film, Pleasantville, where colour emerges from a black and white world.

Head HD Brows make-up artist, Lauren Parsons, led the team to create the beauty look inspired by Princess Margaret, with skin sporting an English Rose lustre and a youthful, flushed complexion to juxtapose the playful collection.

Parsons used Make up By HD Brows Fluid Foundation to create a light, flawless base, with Illuminator patted across the high points of the face and cheekbones, bridge of the nose and Cupid’s bow.

Youthful freckles were added using Brow Define in Foxy and Bombshell, before applying the Punch Powder Blush in a cool, low flush (with a little on the temples) rather than the traditional peachy, pretty blush.

For the eyes, Parson blended the Latte Eye Primer over the socket and lower lash line, then patted on the Candy shade from the Vamp Eyeshadow Palette.

To finish off, she added a little dab of Lipgloss in Bare, before using the Eye Opener pencil in Natural on the water line, to really make the eyes pop. On the lip, she applied lipgloss in Punch for colour and Bare on top, creating a super-glossy and high-shine finish, for a cool but chic effect.
