In just a couple of weeks we somehow managed to travel from L.A to Paris, to Thailand and finally land in New York for fashion week. For the first time, it became a short NYFW stop as we skipped some of the last shows in order to leave (again) to Milan, where I was just a few days ago, for a new project. Life has been honestly all about airports, passport in hands, luggages, packing/unpacking and trying to coordinate meetings with everyone we want to see. Conversations go like “Will I see you in London? Are you coming to Paris?” as we are all on a crazy gypsy life schedule. But it seems like we don’t mind it, it’s part of the game.
NYFW was as always a tremendously exciting experience and we got to do a LOT even though we had to leave early. Some amazing shows, shoots and it was so fun to see everyone again and to spend time with some of our closest friends in this amazing fashion week ambiance. One of my favorite events was for the Michael Kors Gold Fragrance collection launch as all of our pals were there for the occasion, cocktails, a Photo Booth and the retro sound of Duran Duran playing to our ears. I’ve had the enormous pleasure to work with Michael Kors for a while now and as always, they manage to throw the best parties where everyone just seems to have the best time ever.
So instead of sharing with you the red carpet pictures like we all usually do and like you can so easily see online, I wanted to share with you some tips and tricks on how to get ready for an event of such sort. First of all know this, flash pictures will always attenuate your make-up. With that in mind don’t hesitate to go a little stronger on the contouring and shading as it will appear much softer on the shots. However, you still don’t want the cake face effect in person, so it’s all about finding that perfect balance. Second of all, make sure to always have with you a bit of mat powder to avoid shine. A bit of nude lip liner goes a long way, trust me. Try it! Try your poses in front of the mirror, even if it sounds (and looks) so dumb it will be of a tremendous help when you’ll have to pose.
