London Fashion week is nearly upon us, we have confirmed our shows and our make up bags are packed and ready to go.
Pablo Rodriguez, our Director of Artistry and his selected team are no stranger to Fashion Weeks and this season will be no different with Pablo creating Illamasqua looks backstage.
Things backstage are always a little crazy so the more prepared you are the better! To start with Pablo will run the team through a pre-planned look that he has worked on with the designer before the day of the catwalk. However sometimes on the day things have been known to change or the line-up differ. More often or not you will have models being dressed as makeup are applying final touches. So you really must have your makeup mode head on to avoid any mishaps.
We have asked Pablo to show us what’s in his makeup bag when heading to a test with a designer to finalise the makeup. Before the meet up Pablo will sometimes receive a mood board, so he can get a feel for the collection and bring the right tools with him. If he doesn’t here are his go to products he would make sure he has…
One of each Artistry Palette, the colour variation that you have when you bring all the palettes together can create any look possible. From a bold neon eye like last season to a smokey nude eye for the evening dresses strutting down the catwalk. The possibilities are endless with the range of shades, with each Palette having 12 different tones. You can also use the Powder Eye Shadows on other parts of the face so this is a key item to carry along.
