Backstage At The Jenny Packham Fashion Show #MBFW #NYFW

Backstage at the Jenny Packham Spring/ Summer 2013 fashion show was an ordered pace as everyone tried to get the models into hair, makeup and clothes. The makeup was done by Laura Mercier, who invited us to see how the look was created. The look was created by Talia Shobrook.

I spoke with her about her inspiration and how she achieved this look. Talia wanted to do a 1960’s Las Vegas glam look with a modern take. She kept the skin current by making it dewy. The lips were a mild coral and the eyes were swept with bright blue eyeliner. I asked Talia why blue, instead of the classic black. She said that she wanted to do something unexpected and new. Black is so overdone. Blue is 2013. She used different shades of blue to create this powerful color.
