Backstage Make up at Graduate Fashion Week London

Hi Lovelies I have just got back from 3 days of fabulousness backstage at the GFW London. I had the pleasure of representing AOFM the make up was sponsored by Rimmel

We were given a large assortment of their products to use for the duration of the show .I have to say I'm not a big fan of cheap make up but I was pleasantly surprised by the Rimmel foundations they had a great colour range and the colour stay gave a really nice finish the only downside was that they don't do tones for darker skin.

We were split into two teams for each theatre I was in team B along with a load of lovely ladies who have trained at the academy and are now freelance makeup artists in their own right.

We also had the lovely Ariane Poole (Make up artist) directing and designing the looks for the the teams along with her assistant Melisa Green.

Over the days we were given demos of the designed looks which we had to emulate for all the shows, ranging from very natural to heavy eyes and bold lips.

The Loreal pro team did an amazing job with the hair too!

There was some awesome collections and I'm very proud to be part of the show! All in all i had a blast and met some wonderful people who I will definitely be staying in contact with. We also got to keep the products we used so that was a nice bonus too!
