{Backstage} at Giulietta

March 10th, 2013 § 4 comments

One of my favorite shows during New York Fashion Week was {without a doubt} Giulietta New York. The line, designed by Sofia Sizzi, is currently a finalist for the CDFA/Vogue Fashion Fund award.  Sizzi’s designs are heavily influenced by the 1960′s, and this season the collection was a nod to the late sixties and it’s style icons like Jane Birkin. I had the opportunity to interview the make-up team backstage as they made-up the models, and then enjoyed the show from the front row. It was an amazing afternoon, and I’m happy to share a glimpse of it with you today.

The simple, beautiful make-up at Giulietta was designed by Gato and was created using Maybelline New York products. The look began with soft pink eyeshadow all over the eyelid. Then soft brown eyeliner was used from the center of the eye, extending straight out to the side.

Each model’s skin was perfected using Fit Foundation, and a warm blush was added to the apples of the cheeks. To create perfectly soft, pink lips, make-up artists used a moistening chapstick, wiped it away, and then dabbed powder blush to add color. The result was romantic, warm, and simply stunning. {I’ve been using this lip-trick nonstop since – I think it makes one’s lips a perfectly irresistible color and softness!}

I’d like to send the warmest thank you to the Maybelline New York team for having me at the show – it was an absolute honor!

PS – sorry for being MIA lately – I’ve began a new job in New York as a hotel concierge on Times Square. It’s been a hectic few weeks but I’m so excited about my new position. I spend all day talking about Broadway and a city that I love more than I can express… how could I be less than thrilled?! Hooray for new adventures! xx
