So the whirl of London Fashion Week has finally ended, the dregs of champagne have ben quaffed and Somerset House has once again seeped back into its majestic tranquility, free from models, the expected celebrity turnout and the camera-wielding fashionistas. I was lucky enough to go along to a few things over the week which was great fun as I love the atmosphere of London Fashion Week; I adore the people watching, the flamboyance and the charade of the whole occasion.

I attended the MAC Masterclass at LFW last Saturday. This was brilliant as we got to watch Pablo Rodriguez, MAC's senior makeup artist, recreate a catwalk look from start to finish, encouraging questions and interaction all the way through. I am always fascinated watching makeup artists in action, working their magic, so relished the chance to experience this first hand and have the chance to fire any burning questions to Pablo directly. The eye look he created screamed catwalk makeup; obviously not an every day, nipping-to-the-supermarket look, but was a real inspiration taken from the Stephane Rolland SS12 couture show. He used a mascara wand and MAC's acrylic paint in black (pro product) to create the winged, feathered effect, pressing the paint into a point, edging the eye with a splattered finish. It was very Black Swan in my opinion, extremely dramatic and was teamed with a MAC classic, Underage lipgloss on the lips. I got to share the morning's masterclass with a host of lovely ladies, with Louise, Fleur and I pictured above (thanks to the wonderful photography skills of Shirley)  

It was such a fantastic way to kick start LFW, and an absolute treat to be invited to. We also got to play about with the new Shop MAC Cook MAC collection which is exclusive to Selfridges at the moment, but then will go on sale nationwide on 1st March 2012. I have been a bit blasé about MAC collections recently, intentionally avoiding all the hype and sticking to my classic favourites, but this kooky Spring Summer collection is gorgeous with an explosion of Spring shades and kitsch packaging. I have a few pieces from the collection already so I am looking forward to sharing those with you very soon.

Short pearl necklace will feature the beautiful lines of neck, while a long one can accentuate the bust and give versatile ways to wear the necklace.
