NEW YORK FASHION WEEK with CHRIS BENZ is to date the most fun fashion show I have been a part of. Key MakeUp artist Daniel Martin and friend of Chirs lead a team of over 13 artists including all 7 National MakeUp artists for Lancome, Our leader Carin, Michelle Phan, and more artists from the New York area. The inspiration on how he came up with the look with Chris is below in a VIDEO!
I arrived at 62nd and Columbus in New York NY around noon. Backstage was already jumping with stylists, hair, makeup, clothes clothes clothes! You know my obsession with clothes so I set up my Lancome kit right next to Chris's rack of Fall/Winter 2011 collection.
My backstage photos and video are being edited and produced now and will come to you soon!
My first model was the beautiful Kasue. She was my brunette and got the plum pallet. I sculpted her eyes using 2 shadows from the 5 pan mauve pallet and noir waterproof liner. Her skin was perfected using Teint Miracle Foundation and set with Dual finish powder. Cheeks were softly sculpted in Mauve Coquette and lips were soft with a new lipstick coming out in the Absoulue line called Nu. Love Nude lips! Here is what Kasue looked like in the show!
My second model, my blond, and from Canada was Sam. She is in the pink jacket below. I have never seen such beautiful blond lashes and brows. We had so much fun and I think that she know has met the funniest person in her life... me! I love making people laugh. on Sam got the look using two shades in the Teal 5 pan pallet and also got Noir Waterproof liner. Hypnose Mascara, same blush as above and Nu lip but in a different shade!
Loved working with the FAMOUS Michelle Phan backstage. Her Video's on YouTube make history and she is one of the nicest persons I have ever worked with.
