This was the first show I’ve ever been to that had facialists on hand. Facialists from the Cygalle Healing Spa from the Dominican Republic were busy backstage performing ten minute holistic mini facials to prep the models skin before they went into makeup.
Charlotte Willer, the Global makeup artist for Maybelline lead the team in creating a collaboration of an innocent ballerina meeting the edgy streets of NYC look. It’s a very fresh, natural look with all mineral makeup used on the face. Maybelline’s Lash Stiletto Mascara was used only on the top lashes (the bottom were skipped to keep the look natural) and extra edge came from adding excess blush and illuminator to the cheeks. Willer finished off the face by dabbing on Maybelline New York Color Sensational Lipstick in Born With it mixed with lip balm.
Tippi Shorter lead the Avon hair team and I was beyond thrilled because I got to interview her for the first time in a long time. Since she’s a stylist to many celebs including Alicia Keys and Rihanna, I used to interview her for Cosmo so it was great to touch base and meet her in person. See the video in the post below for my interview with Tippi for the Style Coalition.
