Topshop. Burberry. Vivienne Westwood. All of the British designers that we know and love are our go-to’s for that casual, cool beauty look that has become so synonymous with their brands. From fresh-faced and glowing to bedhead, the Brits do “cool” pretty damn well. With London Fashion Week wrapping up, we’ve spotted countless statement lips, effortless waves, and mega-lashes.

But the Brits always bring some out-there looks as well each season. Here, to save you a transatlantic flight, the most showstopping looks from London Fashion Week.

For Burberry's SS 2016 show, makeup artist Wendy Rowe gave the models that traditional, luminous glow she's famous for and alternated lips between Burberry's iconic Oxblood lipstick (yes, for spring!) or Nude Beige.

The lashes at Daks were the focus of the look, with a spiderlike length along the top lash line and lashes clumping together due to an extra coating of mascara.

The bold red lip spotted at Felder Felder is the perfect way to take on a statement lip no matter what the season since the rest of the makeup is kept to a minimum. Matte skin, brushed-up brows, and no mascara (gasp!) are all it takes to get this look.

Glossy green lids aren't exactly "office wear," but somehow these brights just work. For Holly Fulton's show, models alternated between a light-orange or green on the lids, with a touch of gloss for sheen. The look was balanced with a gloss on the lips as well. While this pared-down makeup look isn't for beginners, we're so into it.

Gareth Pugh always knows how to make a statement, and these faces painted on over stretched-stocking masks did not disappoint. Although these looks are better suited to Halloween (make that perfect for Halloween), they were definitely showstoppers coming down the runway.

Giles Deacon's romantic and extravagant collection was complete with a soft-yet-bright pink lip, perfectly separated (and coated) lashes, and brushed brows–basically, an ideal night-out makeup look.

This effortless look from Issa London was all about the carefree wave and bare face, but to add a little bit of edge, a thick black line was drawn under the eye.

The blue eye makeup trend is still going strong in London, with blue liner being used to rim the entire eye at Jonathan Saunders.

Sick of the braid? The twist is a chic update on the old standby, as seen at J.W.Anderson. The sleek ponytail with a two-strand twist is easy to do and looks oh so sophisticated.

The sleek hair look has gotten a little overdone, and it isn't easy to take off the runway. But this sleek-on-top/texture-on-the-bottom (party in back!) look seen at PPQ is a comforting play on textures that actually works.

Flushed cheeks, perfectly groomed brows, and slightly tousled locks for the win: The fresh-face, effortless-hair style at Preen is basically the look we all want every single day of our lives.

You know when you apply fake lashes, and you trim them because you don't want people to know? That was not the thinking at Sibling London. These falsies were meant to flutter, and each model had blunt fringe to go with their stick-straight hair.

Also in crazy-false-lash territory, Thomas Tait actually attached strings to his extreme false lashes, clearly making them the standout feature of his beauty look.

At Topshop Unique, models had a messy makeup look. The statement red lip and glossy eye makeup was meant to look as if it had been slept in, proving that your slightly imperfect makeup actually works.

Vivienne Westwood always has a bit of an out-there beauty look, and her Red Label show—which was based around a protest for climate change awareness—was no different, with models showcasing various colored marks on their faces.
