If you told me a few years ago that I would one day be backstage at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, I wouldn't have believed you. A representative from Kryolan Professional Makeup invited me backstage at the Joanna Mastroianni Fashion Show and I obviously could not turn down the invitation. On Sunday, February 10th, I headed over to the Lincoln Center in New York City and I got to see everything that went on before the show. Kryolan makeup was everywhere (as expected) and makeup artists got their models ready for the 5PM show. To my surprise, everyone seemed relatively calm. I was probably the one that came off the most nervous because this was an incredible first time experience for me.
I was introduced to an awesome Kryolan makeup artist, Kelly, who showed me all of the products and colors she intended to use on her models. Shades from the V3 Neutral Eyeshadow Compact and Classic 1 Lip Rouge Palette were used to make the models shine. I was especially intrigued with the Ultra Under Base because it made each model's skin glow beautifully, giving them a dewy, yet natural finish.
Here are a bunch of photos from backstage! ENJOY!!!
The V2 Eyeshadow Compact is AMAZING!!! Look at those colors!!!
Unfortunately, I was unable to stay for the entire backstage preparations and runway show because I had to get back to New Jersey. However, I was thrilled to have been there to get a behind the scenes look at what goes on during fashion week.
To Kryolan...thank you so very much for having me. Although I was there for a short time, it was amazing and I look forward to next year!
