Day 1 was a very short day with only three designers showing. It’s still a busy day for the makeup team. Our call time is always earlier on day 1 so we can unpack our carry on size suitcase which is full of brand new Maybelline product to use for the week! This is where the fun begins as the team tears open packages and arranges everything in a functional yet picture perfect way. You wouldn’t believe how long this process takes us. Once thats all sorted we have a team meeting with Grace Lee the key makeup artist for the shows.
Pink Tartan’s androgynous look was achieved with Maybelline Brow Drama to brush the brows up for a boyish look. Shading under the cheekbone and in the inner corner of the eye up to the brow, was done with a variety of the matte shades from the Nude palette. Sid Neigem was all about a strong graphic liner. The squared off shape broke in the centre and the outer edge. I went through my fair share of skinny cotton swabs to nail the look. The Mikhael Kale show is always my personal favourite ever since I worked on his presentation in London back in 2012. HIs designs are seriously on another level, and this season his colour palette was a mixture of corals and pinks interspersed with black and maroon leather. The makeup look was clean skin, full brows, tons of Lash Sensational but not clumpy looking, and a shot of neon coral powder in the corner of the eye. Lips were paled out with a dab of Master Conceal as a finishing touch.
