WOW! Would be the short and sweet version of my 1st New York Fashion Week experience, however, I’m sure you’d prefer actual details of my trip. LOL!
I had to take selfies with the snow in the background because before this trip, I’d never been in real snow. By the way, I’m wearing MAC Lipstick in Sin. It’s a Pro color. It lasted all day! Like, for real. I took it off before I went to sleep that night. I tried it on at the MAC Pro Soho store and kept it on.
I was on my way to work on a photoshoot with UK Designer Blessed Zion. This explains why I’m at the store with my Zuca and my bag. You know, just in case you were wondering. Ha ha ha!
Now back to talking about New York Fashion Week. I was blessed to be able to work on 4 fashion shows while in NYC. I almost did 5, but due to the snow on Sunday, the promoter felt it would be best to cancel it. So we did a photoshoot instead.
The 1st show I worked on was on 2/4/14. I assisted Celeb Makeup Artist AJ Crimson who was the Key for the Michael Bastian Show. It was a Mens Wear show and I had a great time. Above is a picture of the AJ Crimson Glam Squad for the Michael Bastian Show. Here are a few behind the scenes shots I took. The hair and makeup team getting prepared for the models to come in.
Above is my makeup station set up. Below is a picture of the models, and designer team getting the guys ready for the runway
Muji was one of the sponsors for the makeup team. They provided these amazing masks for skin prep. I forgot to take a picture of them, but they’re really small; like the size of a nickle. Once you wet them, they expand and you just peel it a part and place it on the face for a few minutes. It provides instant hydration to the skin and makes it smooth and ready for makeup. Below is a picture of AJ showing us how to use the Muji Masks.After the time is up for the mask, he sprayed Caudalie Beauty Elixir (also one of the sponsors for the Makeup Team). Then he perfected the skin with his AJ Crimson Creme Foundation
Here are a couple of the looks from the show below.
I have so much to share with you all. It’s hard for me to know when to stop so that I don’t overload you in one post. I’m still trying to decide just how many parts I’m going to break up this series into. In the meantime, I’ll stop here for the 1st part. Make sure to stay tuned to find out more about my 1st experience working at NYFW!!!
