I got a comment last week if I could list some of my favorite products for Spring 2010. That made me really happy, someone is actually reading my little blog. I will do that, but first my favorite looks from the catwalk for spring 2010...are...
1) Bleached Eyebrows, can be worn with a smokey eye like at the Lanvin show or like at the Alexander McQueen quite nude.
2) Bright Color Lips, we saw them at Prada and House of Holland to name a few. I love! Specially with all clean make up and just a bright lip!
3) Bright Color Eyes, like at Giles Deacon totally amazing color! Or at the Victor and Rolf show, lots of different colors well blended and shimmery. Gorgeous!

People have asked me what foundation I am using cause my skin looks so natural, and the secret is a bit of Givenchy Photo'Perfexion. I love it! Its very light but still with a bit of coverage.
I can also recommend their Mister Eyebrow Fixing Pencil, great for eyebrows which need a bit of extra to stay in place. I don't use it on myself, but its always in my make up kit.
Another great thing to have in your make up kit is Givenchy Phenomen'Eyes Mascara, this amazing brush aloud you to get into the root of the eyelashes. It doesn't dry instantly so you can work with it and create big lashes. Once again its nothing I would use on myself, but its just great to use on a model!

So last show for this season was yesterday with Paul and Joe. The look was very fresh faced with rosy cream blusher and a brownish shadow on the eyes.
Its been an amazing time doing all the shows, altogether I did 18 in London, Milan and Paris. Really want to do it all over again next season.

Today's show, Chloe!
Gorgeous make up and hair! I was as before on Charlotte Tilbury's team. The make up was a
air-force blue eye, a bit of shading and a nude lip all by Mac. Hair by Guido.
Yesterday I had some time off, so I took the opportunity to do some make up shopping in Paris! Went for the essentials like Embryolisse and Bioderma, that you can get in almost any pharmacies. Also got the homeoplasmine, that I've seen people use on the lip, very excited to try out.
But the shop I have longed to go to was Paris Berlin, to get an amazing pencil sharpener that I
tried out in Milan. Also got some kohl pencils and brush holder.

I came to Paris to work with Charlotte Tilbury yesterday late night with Eurostar, love it, it only takes 2,5 h from London. For some reason I was traveling in first class, so after a three course dinner and some wine it felt like I was in Paris in a second.
Todays show was Chapurin!
The look was a turquoise/ petrol blue band across the eyes, a bit like a masque. Perfect skin with a bit of shading and lip balm on the lips.

Run order, every outfit has to be fitted before hand on each model and then placed in order when the model goes out on stage.
Make up station, each make up artist sets up their station.
Normally you do about 2-3 models each.
For models there is sometime a lot of waiting around,
so if you are lucky you can catch up on your sleep.
Show time, lots of photographers backstage. So posing and quick changes of clothes and touching up on hair and make up, and then out on stage again.
I just snapped some activity backstage and thought I just wanted to show you what its look like.
The last day was on saturday and we did two shows. First show was Etro and it was quite hectic cause when the show was meant to start 16 models arrived from the Maxmara show. So you had to work fast, one thing I did notice in Milan was that every show was about 45 min up to an hour late. The look for Etro was a soft smokey eye with an bronzy shading and a highlighted cheekbones.
Next show was Moschino where all the models wear sunglasses so the focus on the make up was a beautiful red lip and off course perfect skin.
