On September 15th I was lucky enough to work alongside a team of wonderful Makeup Artists to get 10 models fashion show ready for London Fashion Week. We were working with a New York based designer called Taylor Uchytil, her clothes are amazing so check them out!

I arrived pretty early at The Bentley Hotel London, which is where the show was taking place. I was shown to a tiny conference room behind the catwalk to set up my kit with the team ready for the models to arrive. We were pretty tight for time as all models had to be ready for 1.

The look Taylor wanted was very doll like, pastel colour cheeks and eyes and glossy lips, fluffy brows. The clothes were a statement in itself so she wanted the makeup to be slightly more understated to make the feature completely on the designs. She wanted the hair slicked back, with each model looking slightly different.

After we had completed all the models hair and makeup, it was time to change into their first outfits; my favourite outfit was called “The Gardener” (you can see this on the website). We had a few little touch ups, like fluffing the brows or adding more gloss, and the models were good to go!

The day was so hectic but also so much fun. This was my first London Fashion Week experience so I was feeling very nervous before I arrived, the team put me at ease straight away and thankfully everything ran smoothly. Thank you to ABK Makeup for having me as part of the team, can’t wait until next year!
