BACKSTAGE AT DESIGNER’S REMIX
By Anastasia Hess.
Copenhagen Fashion Week was super busy, super fun and truly inspiring for me this season. As an (makeup artist) assistant on these fashion shows you are there to help the makeup artists – of course, but you also have your own area of responsibility: We make sure the models get in the makeup chair preferably as soon as they arrive (this is of course the most important place to be we think), we do the nails that has been instructed by the key makeup artist unless there is a manicurist on the venue, we help cleanse of makeup on the models from any previous shows and prepare their skin for a new round of makeup. And we try to keep on top of which models who are done in makeup, missing, or needs to be done. I was definitely kept busy!
I was with Marie out to do the show for Designers Remix with the amazing L’oreal team, this was also my first show ever with Marie and L’oreal last season. To me Charlotte Eskildsen always does it bigger and better with amazing location, a stunning model line-up and clothes beautifully made with a cool edge. This season it was very inspired by the military and the show was held underground in this amazing now-empty dungeon which used to be a water supply for Copenhagen. Candle lights were lid everywhere and it was cold and damp – it looked incredible!
Anne Staunsager created the makeup look with beautiful velvet skin, naturally filled in eyebrows brush in place, a bit of contouring and slightly paled down lips topped with a bit of clear balm. The main focus was two black graphic triangles in the corners of the eye to mimic the shape of a classic eyeliner, it had a really strong and masculine effect. The nails were painted in a dusty kaki colour and on top of that were added a matte top coat, this looked really great with the colours of the collection!
