London Fashion Week Spring 2013 Trend: Sci-Fi Skin!

Android anatomy rules at Erdem at London Fashion Week’s Spring 2013 show. At Erdem, St.Tropez heralded a new era in skin perfecting: the Sci-Fi Tan. St.Tropez Global Skin Finishing Expert Nichola Joss created the Sci-Fi Tan by combining subtle color with a perfect, “plasticy” finish.

Armed with an acrylic paintbrush, Nichola misted Instant Glow Wash Off Dark Spray over the body to provide an immediate color pay-off. Mixing the Tan Optimiser Body Butter with the Violet Skin Illuminator, she then used the brush to add fleeting accents of highlight. She finished the look with a flick on the shoulder blades and a thin line slicked down the forearms.

“This season, the Erdem girl is embracing alien-esque beauty. I wanted to give skin a ‘hyper real’, silicone-like quality that complements the neon colors of the collection and reflects light when glimpsed through the sheer panels of fabric,” said Nichola.

I’m into it. It’s one part Vicky of Small Wonder, two parts fabulous. What say you?
