The fashion curtain in Toronto for Spring 2013 has closed. These last few weeks have been busy in the fashion and beauty realm; the Collections, an alternative more affordable platform for emerging fashion designers to showcase their work and the mega World MasterCard® Fashion Week.
Let's backtrack to the Collections, where I was invited by MAC Cosmetics backstage.
As Laura Siegel's Spring 2013 collection featured soft muted colours with hints of pink. Head makeup artist Melissa Gibson wanted to infuse a pop of colour by using a strong bright pink on eyes. The rest of the makeup was minimal, a nude lip and face using MAC Face & Body Foundation. Thus, the focus was on the eyes using only one shade MAC Pigment in Fuchsia swept around the eyes and mixed with MAC Lash Mixing Medium as mascara.
the tips of models' nails were painted with the multi-purpose MAC Pigment in the same shade Fuchsia
The Aveda team was responsible for creating the hair for the Laura Siegel show. The mood; loose textured braids to mimic having been to the desert.

That is a wrap from backstage, hope you enjoyed the backstage beauty perspective. More to come from Fashion Week.
Are you daring enough to wear a bright monotone shade on your lids and lashes?
