The AOFMPro graduate team joined Gyunel again this year at Ice Tank Studios for the AW16/17 London Fashion Week showcase, his year was almost completely digital apart from 2 models, headed up by key artist Sasha O’Neil, the work began months in advance filming the video footage that was used on the day.
Opting for a heavy, gothic look Sasha & the team began by prepping the skin using Dermalogica skin care, once ready they moved on to the eyes, by doing so they avoided the possibility of any fall out tarnishing the base. Using 3 different shades of deep burgandy the eyes were finished with a Catrice Cosmetics black kohl eye pencil used on both the water line and to tight line the lashes in prep for mascara.
Once the eyes were completed the base was added, using Catrice Cosmetics beautifying tone match foundation to acheive a demi matt base the graduates buffed the foundation into the models skin with a duo fibre brush before applying a deep pink blush & a light reflecting highlighter on the cheekbone, bridge of the nose & cupids bow.
The look was then finished off with a deep oxblood lip pencil used all over the lip for longevity & a swipe of Catrice Cosmetics prime & fine mattifying powder to avoid shine whilst the showcase was in full swing.
