I am back! My plan was to blog from Milan, but that didn't really happened. Sorry! Anyway, I arrived in Milan on wednesday night to work on Charlotte Tilbury's team for 3 days. Altogether we did 5 shows and the first day (thursday) we started with Just Cavalli. Think that was my favorite show in terms off the make up. We did gorgeous perfect skin and a red slightly pointed lip with glitter in red, orange and purple on top.
Next show that day was No.21 ( Alessandro Dell'Acqua's new label named after his birthday 21
of December). The make up inspiration was " classic italian actress". So gorgeous skin and eyes with eyeliner and fake eyelashes and lots of mascara. The preparation for the show was quite stressful with models coming in late from the Prada show, but we made it in the end.
When I was in Stockholm working on the Elle award and Stockholm Fashion week in beginning off February I meet up with swedish make up artist Linda Mehrens. In the end off last year she launched her own brush line, called Linda Mehrens. She so nice and gave me some for me to try out and they are amazing! I love the angled blending brush SB2.
They not just good but very stylish looking too.
Now I am off to MILAN for fashion week there.

Day 4 on London Fashion Week started with Roksanda Ilincic at the On/Off venue in Holborn. Lucia Pica was heading the make up team and the look was a strong lip and glitter glowing eyes and highlighted cheek bones.
In the afternoon I went to Claridge's to work with Petros Petrohilos where Paul Smith show his collection. It was a very natural fresh face with a rosy cheek. The eyes was defined with a brown shade in the eye globe.
Congratulations Carey Mulligan for taken home the Bafta award for Best Leading Actress with the great film An Education. She looked amazing tonight, as always. Really pleased that Colin Firth took home the Best Leading Actor for A Single Man. Great speech!
Today I started the day to work with team Ayami Nishimura on the Nazir Mazhar show at Somerset House. A lot of make up! Lots of glitters and bright colors mixed with glamour. Beautiful body paint as well, in baby blue and baby pink with glitter leopard prints.
After that I went to the new Top Shop venue (Covent Garden) to work with team Linda Ohrstrom on the Ann-Sofie Back show. Great make up as well, a hint of twilight vampire in sunshine base, with purply glitter on the eyes. Lovely!
Did a shoot today with an amazing new model from Norway, Katharina. She's only been modeling for 3 weeks and is signed to Next Models in London. Such a great spirit to have around and a dream to work with. The look reminds me of a 15 year old Kate Moss.
