Tickets to the Alexander McQueen exhibition at the V&A are as rare as hen’s teeth right now (and currently on Ebay for around the £75 mark!) so if you didn’t manage to nab one, then the Warpaint: Alexander McQueen and Make Up satellite exhibition is a good alternative, especially if you’re a beauty buff.

Held at the Fashion Space Gallery (London College of Fashion), 20 John Prince’s Street, London, W1G 0BJ, from 30th April to Friday 7th August 2015, the exhibition explores the catwalk make up from Alexander McQueen shows. You’ll get an in-depth look at the process and inspirations for key beauty looks from some very familiar make-up artist names such as Val Garland and Sharon Dowsett. On display will be a total of 22 looks from 13 collections which have been grouped into three central themes: Amplified, where facial features are obscured and exaggerated, Deviated, where make-up goes beyond the traditional areas and covers other parts of the body and Stripped, where the subtle look intensifies the meaning of the collection.

This is such a great idea – I really cannot wait to go and see the Warpaint: Alexander McQueen and Make Up exhibition; did I mention that entry is free? The website is HERE.
