Backstage at London Fashion Week

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited by Jack Saundercock (make up artist) to go backstage at the Rachel Freire 'Future Noir' fashion show.

The collection featured a lot of nude and black clothing, reflective strips, stand out headpieces and statement shoes:

After the fashion show we were invited backstage, where Jack explained the concept behind the make up and explained how he created the looks.

Before applying make up the model's skin was prepped using products from Dermalogica.

Make up wise Jack primed the skin using the Laura Mercier primer followed by some Giorgio Armani face fabric foundation.

He then used a selection of Jemma Kidd products, including the on set mattifying powder to set the skin, eye wardrobe colour quartet in Grey and Metallica to create the dramatic smokey eye make up, lip and eye dewy gloss to highlight various parts of the face and the ultimate duo lipstick in Peggy for the nude lip.

It was really interesting to see what goes on backstage at a fashion show, been shown the make up used and to have the make up artist explain how to create the look.

Thank you so much to Jack for inviting us and for giving us this wonderful opportunity to go backstage!

Have you been to any fashion shows? Who are your favourite designers?
