Sexy and trendy smokey eyes at Ermanno Scervino SS2016

Jessica Nedza, makeup artist, headed the MAC makeup team at the Ermanno Scervino SS2016 Show in Milan. Of course we were there, and of course we could not miss the opportunity to talk with Jessica and ask her to tell us more about the makeup look she created for this show:

‘The collection is very romantic with a lot of pastel colors so we wanted to spice it up a little and make the girls a little bit more sexy. So we decided to do very sexy smokey eyes. I am using the Fairy Fair Eye shadow from M.A.C for it.

Then we also have the new kajal eyeliner which is called Squid Twist. We used it to create a bit of a lash line and also inside the eye we put a bit of kajal to create a cat eye.

A part from that we have lots of highlights to make the girls look glamorous and to have a beautiful summery skin. We have a little bit of pastel peach color on the cheek. I used New Romantic from M.A.C.

And the lip is also a new product which is very nice because it is a kind of liquid lip that dries up and becomes matte. It gives this beautiful peachy color and it is called ‘Lady Be Good’. At the end of the day [just before the show] we are going to finish the make-up up with a eye gloss which has this beautiful plum color.’

Additional make-up tips for this beauty look

For the skin blend Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation M.A.C with concealer Studio Finish M.A.C. Add Extra Dimension Eye Shadow Amorous Alloy on the eyelid and highlight the brow bone and eye corner with Extra Dimension A Natural Flirt. Curl the lashes and use black mascara. Cover the eye brows with Studio Finish Concealer.

Models backstage at Salvatore Ferragamo SS2016

I spent the two hours preceding the Salvatore Ferragamo Fashion Show (Spring Summer 2016 – Woman) backstage. Filming, interviewing, photographing. Two hours during which I witnessed the usual routine of approaching the show (in any case always the same, be it a young or a renowned fashion brand). But also tests of strength between some press officer and some makeup artist, some hysterical scene, a lot of tension (too much) and very little sympathy. Indeed, nothing.

And what about the models? The models are a subject we will talk about in the coming days, the new generation of models that we have been seeing for a couple of seasons now. In a word? Unpleasant. In two words? Also… ugly? Can I say ugly when I talk about a fashion model? But we will resume this discussion in a few days.

Meanwhile, here is a first preview of the backstage at the Salvatore Ferragamo Spring Summer 2016 fashion show.

The models, you will notice, don’t smile. Never. Oh yes it is true, smiling causes wrinkles…

We met, enjoyed and photographed the sexy (and crazy) Pyper America Smith. In this video you can see Pyper teasing the many photographers who wanted to shoot her backstage at the Ermanno Scervino show, and they got a real show. Of course we filmed it :-)

Anthony Turner interview at the Salvatore Ferragamo SS2016 Show in Milan

Backstage at the Salvatore Ferragamo fashion show in Milano (SS2016) we met and talked to Anthony Turner about the hair look for this show. The products, the inspiration and more. Watch or read (see below) the interview, learn about the latest hair trends and copy the look.

Interview with Anthony Turner 

Basically the look we did for Ferragamo is very anti the collection. It is kind of anti-summer as well in a sense, because when we think of summer stars, especially in hair, we think of hair down, very loose, soft. That is the trend we have been seeing so far this season, but we change these things for Ferragamo a little bit.

We are having a little bit more fun. The collection is very light and soft, lots of layers, very romantic, but we are doing something that is not romantic, we are rebelling against the collection somehow, and it is kind of fun to do that. We have done a very low side part and we are basically making the girls heads into these little boy shapes on top and then a really low pony tail at the back.

Which hair products did you use for this hair look?

We are actually using quite a lot of gel, especially on the top. We are using loads of gel. I like the light on the runway, the light is really bright, really fresh. Basically when the girls walk the gel is going give me this reflectiveness, it is going make the hair feel like vinyl. I like the idea of it being reflective, which is a kind of elevating, it gives it something else. It is kind of fun. I haven’t used gel this season, we are getting our hand dirty. It is a lot of fun.

Filipe Chaves – Brazilian Top Model

We met Filipe Chaves backstage at the Vivienne Westwood Men’s Show (Summer 2016) in Milano. And he was one of the most interesting models so we asked him to tell us more about himself. A model, and a chef. Would you have expected that? :-)
