While we had our eyes on glued on the runways at World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto. We were also invited to go backstage in between shows to get a first hand look at some of the beauty prep. We particularly we took note of looks that were featured on stunning asian models and how we could translate that into our looks for everyday and evenings out.
Grace Lee, Lead Makeup Artist for Maybelline New York Canada was spotted backstage working her magic. Lee has has worked with many celebrities and global fashion icons in editorials and runway shows, and she’s like a celebrity herself. It was a thrill to see her in action as she gave beauty insiders background info and up close looks created for each show. Here are some of our favourite looks!
FOR DAVID DIXON: she created a look that blends that geisha and bitten lip look that caught our attention. It combines a mysterious yet subtle sexiness that we can’t wait to try the next time we’re heading out to a party.
FOR NARCES: a fresh face with bold lips using Maybelline’s Continuous Cranberry 24 Hr Lipstick!
FOR PINK TARTAN: minimalist and structured!
FOR MIKAEL D: dramatic sweeping eyes!
