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 DSC_0146 IMG_9170 _MG_1732 _MG_2435 MakeUp at the ready

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. DSC_0146 IMG_2725 IMG_2793 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.

IMG_9544 _MG_2424 IMG_1887 IMG_1913 IMG_1914 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. You might be there to do MakeUp but do not be surprised if you get pulled by someone to help dress a model, tidy a models hair or even to maybe run and get some water and food for everyone.

Just started with a foundation. I had 55 minutes to create a Fashion Makeup Look. As the jury said they want to see something new, an own creation between evening makeup and creative makeup... not too much but enough to amaze them. Ive had a picture in my mind what i want to see on the model as it should be. Nothing without a vision. Our vision was a high fashion look with arabic touch dramatic and glamorous .
