Baartmans and Siegel – London Collections: Men SS16

Day 3 at London Collections Mens SS16 collections and AOFM were excited to have been asked to once again to exclusively supply a team of makeup artists to work with the Dutch / English designer duo Baartmans and Seigel for their “Desolation Angels” collection at Victoria House. This years collection was edgy, trying to emulate the gritty cowboy in the desert with a 70’s Marlboro man look about him. Colours were grey, navy which seems to be a favourite with the designers and lots of white. Fabrics were breathable wool, denim sewn into jackets and jeans, leather jackets warn with Old Skool Vans. AOFM graduates had to create a 70s cowboy look and to achieve this the skin was first prepped using Dermalogica skincare products. Ultra calming mist to help reduce redness in the skin and Dermalogica Active Moist to hydrate the skin. Brows were groomed and brushed upwards using MAC brow gels. To achieve an even skin tone the MAC pallet concealer was used. MAC setting powder was dusted lightly over the face to minimise any shine. Models wearing shorts had to have any blemishes on their legs evened out and a bronzing powder was applied to the face to give the models that desert glow.
