NYFW S/S14 | Backstage with MAC Cosmetics and Giveaway

Hey everyone! As you know, I was able to attend NYFW early September and one of the events that I was able to attend, thanks to Lara and the PR girls behind MAC Cosmetics, was going backstage to two of the company’s shows below. I was able to talk to the makeup artists and hair stylists there and got their inspiration behind the looks created for each show; one for PRISM shown at the Standard hotel and the other for Otswald Helgason held at Milk Studios.

The first set of photos below were from PRISM show with makeup done by Gregory Arlt and the look he was going for was having perfect skin and focus on the strong brows to build dimension to the face. The inspiration came from Helmut-Newton for a masculine feel–fresh but handsome with lips like a modern geisha.

The hair was sleeked back with products used from O&M–a relatively new to US hair products made of natural ingredients to reduce the chemical overload, but still deliver great benefits to hair. The products definitely intrigued me and I can’t wait to try them out soon.

For the Otswald Helgason show below, I was able to talk to makeup artist, Caroline Donnelly, backstage and the inspiration for the looks below was going for the young fresh face girl who wears minimal makeup but likes to experience with bright lip colors.

So in honor of this post, I happened to stop by the MAC Cosmetic store near me and saw these two palettes by Antonio Lopez and thought it would be perfect to host a giveaway for this month. MAC teamed up with former supermodels Jerry Hall, Pat Cleveland and Marisa Berenson to capture the vibrancy and cultural influence of fashion illustrator and pay homage to Antonio Lopez as evident in his collection below.

    The Otswald Helgason designs are mostly short skirts. I like some of the designs but being an extreme old fashioned person I feel like it is showing too much skin!
    Anyway, thank you for sharing behind the scene posts like this. It gives others like myself to see what goes on behind the chaos of fashion week minus the hassle of traveling. But I guess we will never feel the aura of NYFW unless we are there personally?
