From Scotland With Love

 

Throw a bunch of celebrities on a stage, and you can count on one hell of a show. It was hard to keep a straight face at last night’s From Scotland With Love charity fashion show, when the models were kissing and riverdancing down the runway- all for a good cause! The couture, however, didn’t go unnoticed. Famed designers Vivienne Tam, Zang Toi and Chloe Chen, among others, reminded us why they’re the best in the biz, with their extravagant trains, delicate headpieces, and authentic kilts paired with modern tees.

The confident catwalkers  wouldn’t have been shimmying through Stage 48 without the speedy and precise skills of our 6-member PRO team, who cranked out editorial-worthy smokey eyes, glowy skin, and bright bold lips, in under two hours.  Did we mention there were 60 models, who also had to get their hair done? Yes, our MUAs are beasts!

If we have to pick an MVP of the night, our vote goes to Key Artist Dani Fonseca, who took the show’s theme (The Scottish Lion Meets the Asian Dragon) to new heights. We’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Read More

Backstage at NYFW: threeASFOUR

It would seem the planets were in perfect alignment at last week’s threeASFOUR Pret-a-Couture show. We happily dodged reporters and camera crews to prep for the coming of Ophiuchus, the 13th zodiac sign, and the inspiration for threeASFOUR’s fall ’13 collection. We used TEMPTU AIRpod Foundation and a mix of TEMPTU PRO S/B Multicolors, to create celestial beings who were part Sailor Moon, part Viking princess. We still get starry-eyed when we see pictures of those FIERCE blue lips! See them for yourself in our video, full of rare behind-the-scenes moments.  Read More
