Every fashion month, I look most forward to London Fashion Week. Though it’s the shortest, I find it to always be the most creative in terms of fashion and beauty. Designers in London actually take chances, creating avant garde looks that are incredibly inspirational and actually exciting to look at. For me, even more exciting than the runway, is the backstage. It’s a great look at the beauty process and gives you an insider view at what it takes to put together an amazing look.

Learn more about wearing this trending look in the notes. –– Laura Martin
