NOLCHA for New York Fashion Week Part 3

For the last day of shows for NOLCHA Fashion Week 20 AOFM graduates made their way backstage for the final day of AOFM shows. This show was featuring 7 different designers with 45 models! The AOFM makeup team got right to work to create the four different makeup looks on the models.

AOFM tweaked the makeup for the different designers but it was all based around one similar eye. We used the DERMALOGICA Skincare to prepare the skin to create the perfect base to work from. Using the Bobbi Brown BBU palette the skin’s complexion was perfectly flawless. To prepare the eyes we used a paint pot similar to their natural skin tone to prep the eye for the eyeshadow. On the eyes we swept a popping pink across the lid and blended out to the crease of the lid. The pink eyeshadow was also carried under the eye on the bottom lash line. Mascara was added to the lashes on the bottom and top, which really made the eyes pop. The cheeks were natural flushed using a rosy pink shade. The highlights of the face were hightlight using a very soft shimmer to catch the runway lights. For the different designers the AOFM team adjusted the lip colour to make it more suitable to their collection. From a rosy pink, to a dark plum and a natural glossy lip.

We look forward to the next season for Nolcha Fashion Week!
