It was such an amazing experience being the makeup director for the 2018 VA Fashion Week. The event held at The Harbour Club at Waterside had about 37 models and 10 rising star designers from the Hampton Roads area. With the help of a talented team of 8 other artists, I created a fashion forward makeup look that featured a wine stained lip, bronzed and glowy cheeks, with feathered brows and a lived in soft smokey eye. We alternated the hair styles to be either a messy top knot or a low textured ponytail with a center part.
Here’s some behind the scenes photos and designs from Brittani Ariana with photos by The Runway Authority.
For designer Azi Blas’s avant garde designs we quickly vamped up the eyes with a glossy intense black lid and softed the lip to a smidge of tinted lip balm. The intense energy of making this quick change for the show’s finale was a total rush!
