Male Grooming at Christopher Raeburn and Xander Zhou in London Collections Men
I had the privilege and a great time assisting an amazing makeup artist last week for two shows at London Collections Men.I joined 6 of my fellow AOFM graduates backstage at The Hospital Club in Covent Garden with Key Makeup Artist Michelle Webb who designed the look for Christopher Raeburn and Xander Zhou AW13 shows. For both looks the makeup was kept minimal and simple and on arrival at our 6.30am call time Michelle demonstrated the male grooming makeup for our first show Christopher Raeburn.

Firstly the skin was prepped using Dermalogica skin care, who sponsored the shows with their products. The skin was thoroughly cleansed with their Ultra Calming Cleanser followed by their Multi Active Toner. Active moist moisturiser was used to give a semi matt appearance.
Paying special attention to minimising any redness. A natural skin base was created by using OCC Tinted Moisturiser and the BBU palette to conceal any blemishes and dark circles. Also paying attention to any redness on the ears.
Shu Uemura translucent powder was used along the T-zone to reduce shine and the male models’ brows were set in place with a clear brow set.
For Xander Zhou the look was pretty much the same and all models were required to shave before we started if they had any visible stubble.
Here’s a couple of pics from the shows and the AOFM team with Michelle…
