I have been neglecting my on location series for a while so with a recent experience at London Fashion Week, it’s back!
Souzounushi was showcasing her new collection at the YES Fashion Show held at the Hilton Hotel in Holborn as part of LFW shows taking place all over the capital. I was the personal Make-up Artist to Ny, who was the special guest model closing the show. You will no doubt remember Singer/ Songwriter Ny Gray, from some of my earlier posts. I worked with the super talented Catherine Taylor (aka ‘Cat Nails’) who is a Celebrity Nail Technician and educator who has recently set up her own business ‘YOU LOVE NAILS‘. She regularly does nails for Ny, Nicole Scherzinger and Tulisa to name a few and is passionate about all things nails. I have worked with Cat several times now and was an honourary part of her fabulous team for the day.
The brief for Ny’s makeup was simple. Smokey eyes, golden skin and red lips. Products used: MAC Carbon, Texture and Arena on the eyes, MAC Loose powder in NC45 on her face as well as Gold Deposit as a highlight on the cheeks, neck and decollatage. Also used, their Black Track fluidline, and Smoulder eye liner. INGLOT Brow powder and red lipstick from their freedom palette collection. The gold look was to compliment her dress and the blinged out gold nails by Cat. Sleek, high ponytail courtesy of Tulay and Mus from Ceris Hair UK. Cat and her genius ladies, Charli, Jazz, Jade and Tenika painted, polished and adorned the models nails for the show.
Back stage fashion shows are busy, loud, exciting and pressurised. There is skin on show, hair in hands and people running about in every direction. All in all it is extremely exhilarating and a rush like no other. The show was a huge success and we all had loads of fun. I even met some lovely ladies from Mary Kay (yep! I am always on the make-up look out).
Here are a few behind the scenes pics! Look out for the behind the scenes video which will be out soon. Shoutout to @deefavourite who was our resident photographer and videographer for the day. His pics will be much better than mine.
