I was so excited for this amazing opportunity! I was going to observe the madness behind the scenes!! So I hustled to Lincoln Center in the pouring rain to the Venexiana show, on Saturday Sept, 8th.
The makeup was being done by Mehron, which is a professional makeup line, known for their long-wear, theatrical, highly pigmented products. They are particularly popular amongst professional dancers. Did you know that Mehron was the brand featured and used in the movie “Black Swan” with Natalie Portman? I have tried a few of their products and they are amazing and well priced!
Anyway, the show was keyed by the amazing body painter/makeup artist Dani Fonseca. Venexiana is known for their rock and roll haute couture vibes, expensive fabrics with an edge and the makeup had to suit! Typically, from what I have seen, makeup on the runway tends to be fairly simple, very neutral on the lid, occasionally a bright lip, but the idea is to not to compete with the clothes, but Kati Stern, the creator of Venexiana, wanted a bold, smoky eye with standout lashes!
I loved this look!! Dani and her team did an amazing job and I will be wearing a variation of this look during the fall!
Some of the key products used are:
- Celebre Pro HD Foundation
- Celebre PRO-HD Loose Mineral Finishing Powder
- iNtense Pro Pressed Pigments – Graphite, Carbon
- Black Detailz – liquid liner
- Black E.Y.E Liner Pencil
- Feather E.Y.E Lashes
- L.I.P. Cream – Zinnia
So here are some pics behind the scenes! Enjoy!
Here’s a video Dani speaking about the look!
Special thanks to Mehron and Sue for give me this amazing opportunity!! See you next Fashion Week!
