LFW Looks: Red Lips at the Marta Jakubowski Show

LFW Looks: Red Lips at the Marta Jakubowski Show

Recreate the Illamasqua Bold Red Lip Look from the Marta Jakubowski SS19 Show

London Fashion Week is being talked about everywhere and we’re pinpointing our favourite makeup looks which can be easily recreated in a wearable way. Whether you’re looking for a bold lip, a bold eye, or the latest glitter sensation, we’re exploring all the best looks from the LFW runway shows and showing you how to create them at home using premium makeup brands such as Illamasqua.

At the Marta Jakubowski AW19 show, the clothes were heavily tailored, and the makeup was all about matte skin and bold red lip colour. Led by Pablo Rodriguez and the Illamasqua team, the makeup artists did a fantastic job of matching the lip colour to the wardrobe colour palette. As the shows are all about showcasing up-and-coming fashion talent, it’s important that the makeup complements the clothes pieces, and brings the look together.

Red Lips and Matte Skin: The Products You Need

Pablo’s vision of retro glamour certainly came to life in these stunning final looks, and we’re eager to add this new makeup look to our beauty repertoire. Red lips aren’t always easy to pull off, but we’re confident that Illamasqua products are the key to success.

Key Illamasqua products used by the MUA’s included the Beyond Veil Primer to create a smooth radiant canvas, the Precision Gel Liner to create a thin graphic line, along with the Antimatter Lipstick in Midnight and the Colouring Lip Pencil in the shade Creative.

To make the look more wearable, we recommend keeping the eyeliner to a minimum and adding layers of the iconic jet-black Raven Masquara. The ideal eyeshadow palette would be the Elemental palette.
