Alas! The much awaited Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim post has arrived! Jackie and I had the pleasure of getting a backstage, pre-show glance at the L*Space By Monica Wise show last Saturday. Aside from meeting and chit-chatting with the designer herself, we also got to speak with Sarah Lucero, the Global Director of Education for Stila Cosmetics (I almost fainted of excitement). She gave us a quick run through on the overall look for the show. The collection’s inspiration was Sirens (aka Mermaids)! Anything ocean related, I love, so I was in makeup heaven. Their goal was to make the models look like they just stepped out of the ocean and on to the runway. And they totally did! Here are a few shots of Sarah showing us the products and application technique: Stila Magnificent Metals Foil Finish Eye Shadow
The models wore Mother of Pearl inspired headpieces and scale-like Flash Tattoos. So gorgeous!
#MBFWSwim wouldn’t have been complete without a few selfies! Here are Jackie and I at the shows on Friday & Saturday! To see all her fabulous outfits, head on over to her blog Dash of Panache!
