Amsterdam Fashion Week – 12th – 16th July 2013.
This season I had the great chance to be a part of Amsterdam Fashion Week together with a great team of makeup artist from the agency House of Orange.
All the shows are sponsored by Maybelline but we were also allowed to use products from other brands. And we do get some nice goodie bags!
I did one show a day except for the last one, where I worked as a makeup artist for a press event for Maybelline (more goodie bags!). I also worked on the opening show for the week, which was my absolute favorite.
These are the looks for each of the shows I worked on:
Friday 12 – Show Spijkers & Spijkers (opening show for the week)
Brigitte Bardot inspired lots of individual fake eyelashes paired with a green shade all over the top eyelid and the brow bone. Very natural skin yet quite matte with same shaping, blush and glitter on the top of the cheekbone. Filled-in brows and very subtle red lips brought by the master of red lipstick Ellis Faas.
Saturday 13 – show Fredfarrowbrittavelontan
Relaxed, effortless makeup. Matte skin with some shine on key areas, shaping and bronzer on cheeks. Filled-in brows, drawn bushy. Some girls also had white stripes under the eyes. Nothing on lips but Vaseline when needed. No eyeshadow and transparent mascara on the eyelashes.
Sunday 14 – show Vibrant Pakistan
Matte skin with shaping on the cheeks. Very thin, slightly undone eyeliner all around the eyes, copper shadow and lots of gold pigment on the inner corner of the eye. Filled-in brows and bright red lips with Mac Lipmix in Magenta.
Monday 15 – show Melissa Siegrist
All boys, extremely natural makeup. No foundation, only concealer where needed. Subtle shine on the center of the face, shaping under the cheekbones and brushed out brows. Vaseline on lips when needed.
It was a wonderful week with a lot of hard work but also fun and great moments. I really can’t wait for the next one!
