I had the honor of working as one of the makeup artist on the Glam Squad with Key Makeup Artist Niala Howard, of Magnolia Makeup, a couple of weeks ago for Fashion Week New Orleans. The event took place at The Sugar Mill from 3/21-3/24.
Below are behind the scenes pictures. As a disclaimer, I didn’t bring my camera with me to work so I had to use my phone to capture all of my pics for this post.
Above are the runway looks for the designers on Day 2 of Fashion Week New Orleans. One of my favorite looks on this day was the Purple Smokey Eye and neutral lip. Here’s one of the models I created this look on below.
This was the Glam Squad Room Makeup Artist Room.
Above is the list for the Designers and Models. This line up was very helpful in knowing what order to makeup the models. Many of them walked for multiple designers so we had to make sure we did the right look at the right time.
Here’s a picture of me with one of my fellow Glam Squad Makeup Artists Phoenix.
Another look I really enjoyed creating was the classic red lip with winged liner
After the show on Day 3 of Fashion Week New Orleans, I got a chance to take a picture on the Red Carpet. So glad I walked out the front instead of the back. I totally missed the red carpet the day before. Had no idea it was there. LOL! I worked all day and went home.
I’m so grateful that Niala chose me to be a part of her Glam Squad for Fashion Week New Orleans. It was an incredible experience. I’ve worked with Fashion Shows before and had a wide range of encounters, but I have to say that Niala’s leadership allowed all of us on her team to learn, grow, be creative, and enjoy working together. Each morning, I was excited to wake up and get to work. I’m looking forward to working with her next year.
