The time had come again. Arab Fashion Week hit Dubai with full force. Once again we were so pleased to be involved. lets take you backstage with The Lipstick MakeUp Institute team. THE MAKE UP Brand: illamasqua Being backstage at a fashion show is so much more than just being a MakeUp artist. You are part of a family to get the show on the road. The trick is to all stick together, work with confidence, keep alert and of course ALWAYS smile and never loose focus. Its important to be on the ball as fashion shows can be a crazy rush backstage. When it comes to fashion shows, they key thing to remember is timing is everything. As beautiful and stunning fashion shows are from the front row, its not all glitz and glamour backstage. Backstage is where the months of hard work comes to life in a matter of hours. However, the rush is additive and the achievement you feel once the show has finished lasts for days. The Lipstick MakeUp Institute team Lights Camera Action Lets get this show on the road. This amazing experience gave our fantastic Lipstick Make Up Institute team to express their artistry in more ways than one. Each day kept us all on our toes, we all loved it and left us craving for more. We got to work with fashion designers from around the world which we can all defiantly say this is a "pinch-me" moment.
