As I'm writing this my feet hurt and it's silly o'clock in the morning boooyayyyyyy it's fashion week and it kicked off with a big bang today! I had so much fun going backstage and filming with my Beauty and Fashion Filming consultancy company Couture Communications, www.couturecommunications.com, directing the lovely Lauren from the Grazia beauty team- check out our film on Graziadaily.co.uk today. Couture Communications went backstage at Hannah Marshall, Felder Felder, Sass and Bide and PPQ.
The looks were fabulous at Felder Felder as the inspiration was a cool rock chick who idolises Janis Joplin and studies pagan literature with Georgina Graham for MAC doing the make up. She used MAC indigo eye pencil on the eyes and MAC Strobe Liquid (a lighter weight version of the Strobe Cream) down the T-zone to highlight the face. I loved the nail colours, which were specially blended for the show in 3 hues of blue inspired by the blue ink cartridges you used to have at school. Genious.
At Sass and Bide I loved the braided hair and top knot bun and the soft Shu Uemura peach blush on the cheeks and new blinging bronzed sparkle eye shadow and black gel liner.
Liner was also used at PPQ using Benefit cosmetics on the top and lower lashes with lots of Bad Gal mascara on both the top and bottom lashes but combed through with a Tweezerman eye lash gadget
(well a tiny comb) to keep them flirty and feminine versus rock chick and badasssss. I also loved the trick I picked up there for getting the perfect pout. Dab some Benetint in the centre of the top and bottom lip to make them pop and then add some Benetint lip balm on all over for a sensual and glossy look. The cheeks were sculpted with a light bronzer, which the make up artist said was like Spanx for the face!
I will be bringing you more backstage news, tips and tricks and gossip over the next 5 days of London Fashion Week!!!!!!! Watch this space!!!!!!!!!
