Backstage @ Vielma SS15 LFW

My second day at London Fashion Week SS15 was spent at Vielma London assissting key artist Michelle Webb with the AOFM Pro team. Make-up was done at Charles Fox in Covent Garden, the show took place inside the lobby at ME London (a hidden pyramid inside the hotel with jelly fish projections going up the walls.... wow!) on The Strand.

The look was complex and creative with both dramatic eyes and lips. After prepping the skin ( my fashion week skin must haves are Bioderma Sensibio, previously known as Crealine, and Dermalogica products including Active Moist) I started on the eyes first, as any fall out from shadows would have ruined foundation.

A red cream eyeshadow was used all over the eyelid and the inner corner up to the brow. On top of this, MAC's 'Coppering' eyeshadow was applied heavily to stop the cream eye shadow base from creasing, it was also applied under the lower lash line. A brighter red eyeshadow was also put over both on the lid and underneath. Dark purple and black from an Inglot eyeshadow palette were mixed together and applied to the outer corner and under the eye. A bright orange eyeshadow was applied to the inner corner of the eyes for a pop of colour. I put MAC's Blacktrack eyeliner as close as possible to the roots of the upper lash for a thin liner and to make the roots of the lashes look full. Mascara was then applied.

I used my Bobbi Brown BBU Palette for foundation and concealer and applied it with a Real Techniques stippling brush for a perfect dewy finish. MAC's Mineralize Skinfinish in 'Stereo Rose' was put on the cheeks for blush whilst' Soft and Gentle' was applied lightly on the forehead.Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetic's loose pigment in 12 was used for highlight.

The lips were dark plum and dramatic. The first step was to line the lip with OCC's colour pencil in 'Black Dhalia', then OCC's lip tar, also in 'Black Dhalia', was used across the entire lip. A beautiful and interesting 3D highlight was put in the centre of the lip by patting the orange eyeshadow that was also used in the inner corner of the eye (from Make-Up Forever) which really brought the entire look together.
