Andrea Pompilio for Milan Fashion Week AW15/16

AOFM students worked their magic backstage doing all the makeup and hair for this Italian designer Andrea Pompilio.  He is widely quoted that his goal is to redefine modern menswear and with 13 years of design experience at houses like Calvin Klein, Yves Sant Laurent, and Alessandro Dell’Acqua he is known best for his streamlined taste with clean menswear classics as seen again this season.

The look was very clean, dewy fresh looking skin and all the models were checked for noticeable stubble and any offenders were whisked away with the fantastic Dermalogica Shave Kit that has everything needed for an ultra close shave (Kit includes Daily Clean Scrub, Pre-shave Guard, Soothing Shave Cream and Post Shave Balm). Then we thoroughly prepared by using the PH-balanced Dermalogica Ultra Calming cleanser that gives the skin a delicate yet effective cleanse, Dermalogica Multi-active Toner follows this. This toner is ultra light and preps the skin for proper moisture absorption for the Dermalogica Active Moist that is a superb oil-free moisturiser. A little Lucas Pawpaw Ointment to rehydrate the lips was popped on, and this was blotted down just as the models go to walk to stop the lips looking shiny or greasy.

Using Bobbi Brown tinted Eye Brightener to refresh and conceal under the eye area hiding any signs of fatigue. A very light application of Bobbi’s Foundation Stick buffed into the skin used only where the skin needed perfecting. A light dusting of NARS Light Reflecting Loose Setting Powder was used only to keep any shine at bay to complete the look.

Our hair team created a modern low-rise fringe sweep. Semi-gloss finish, slick and precision styling was the perfect neat complement to the natural boys look.
