A Makeup Artist's Backstage Diary at PFW
After nearly a month of show after show, the fashion and beauty crowd have reached Paris. The end is nigh, soon we'll be able to look back over the past four weeks (and as many cities) to see which trends will be taking over our wardrobes and makeup bags come autumn. But we're getting ahead of ourselves, the shows are still happening across the channel! We loved having a MAC makeup artist covering Milan so much that we asked another MAC senior artist, this time Rebecca Butterworth, to report back from the front line—or rather the backstage—to capture just what it's like to work behind the scenes. Keep scrolling to go backstage with Rebecca at Paris Fashion Week, starting with her most recent snaps.
Creating bruised lips and monotone skin at Yang Li by using MAC A/W 16 Forecast Lip Palette and a new lipstick launching later this year.
That oval brush is the MAC Oval 6 Brush (£35) designed for applying foundation, powder and blusher.
Sullen teen rebels with black patent lips designed by me for AALTO.
(Ed Note: Re-create the look with Illamasqua Intense Lipgloss, £20, in Repulse Pure Black. You can also use a black gloss to deepen and darken brighter red and pink lipglosses and lipsticks you already own. Or for making a smoky glossy!)
