This week I had the pleasure of creating makeup for models walking the runway for PRISM Fashion Show, featuring design work by Chicago designers as well as students currently in the fashion program at Illinois Institute of Art, Schaumburg. Working with a talented team of hair and makeup stylists from ASHA Salonspa Streets of Woodfield, we worked to create a dramatic and bold look for the show.
Hair was BIG. TEASED. TALL. Makeup was LOUD. GRAPHIC. GLITTERING. These models were the perfect mix of Ke$ha, Gaga, and Batgirl. Superhero women with a dark edgy glam.
The makeup look was directed by fashion students - the goal was to go beyond wearable and find a powerful statement in black and gold. After trying many looks for lips, we decided on the look shown here. Gold lipstick from MakeupForever, topped with AVEDA Lip Shine in Golden Prism, set the perfect base for loose glitter to set on top as the final layer. I loved how these lips turned out- especially onstage as they sparkled from every angle. Shown below are some of my finished models for the show.
