Last month I had the privilege and a great time assisting an amazing makeup for another on schedule show at London Fashion Week.

I joined 10 of my fellow AOFM graduates backstage at Halcyon Gallery in New Bond Street with Key Makeup Artist Emma O’Byrne who designed the look for Emilia Wickstead SS14 Show.

On arrival at our 7.45am call time Emma O’Byrne demonstrated the makeup look. 

Firstly the skin was prepped using Dermalogica skin care, who sponsored the show with their products. The skin was thoroughly cleansed with their Ultra Calming Cleanser followed by their Multi Active Toner and Active Moist Moisturiser . 

The makeup was keep simple and very natural with an emphasised brow, beautiful skin and a hint of Plum colour to the lips. Some of the makeup brands used were OCC, Tom Ford & MAC.

Here’s some backstage and final look images…
