Michael Bastian AW15/16 for Milan Fashion Week

Michael Bastian is an American fashion designer known for his namesake label, Michael Bastian, and his work for brands such as GANT. He focuses on modern luxury and has received recognition for his work, most notably the CFDA Menswear Designer of the Year award in 2011.

The look was in keeping with the understated elegance of the AW15 collection.  Academy of Freelance Makeup students were excited to be working backstage doing all the makeup and hair for this famous designers new collection.

The skin was thoroughly prepared by firstly using Dermalogica Ultra Calming cleanser that not only gives the skin a delicate yet effective cleanse, but can help calm redness which is endless helpful especially if the male model has recently shaved. 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 after the makeup was applied to stop the lips looking shiny or greasy.

Using Bobbi Brown tinted Eye Brightener to refresh under the eye area and hide 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 to complete the look.

Our hair team created sharp neatly combed preppy style which was a perfect match for the clean styling.
