Shahnaz Loves Beauty

My week finished off with a bang yesterday at the Elle Birthday shoot with an amazing team. Its been a week of make up trends at New York Fashion Week and getting my hands on some great products.

1. I love this video of Mac Cosmetics backstage at New York fashion week with the different make up artists talking about the looks created and products being used plus what the trends are for AW14. For me as a make up artist I love seeing new products and all the ways of make up application. In the video we see my favourite Mac 217 brush being used to apply lipstick and creating a stain or a really beautiful lip.

2. I came across another video from Allure’s instagram feed of some backstage beauty tricks from Diane Kendal backstage at the Jason Wu show. They have great backstage video’s and pics of looks being created. I am loving the blue eye created by Pat Macgrath for the Anna Sui show. I will be doing a full trend report next week.

3. I was part of the Elle magazine birthday shoot as they turn 18 in April. It was an amazing day with 13 models each with a different look represeneting what the magazine is all about. I will be blogging about the looks I created once the magazine is out. The first look was with a beautiful dark lip with the twin sisters using one of my favourite dark lipsticks Cyber from Mac.

4. I got my hands on new make up launching from Chanel in March/April in SA. Love the eye palettes and I used one of the them at the Elle shoot to create a smokey eye. I love their textures and shades definitely a massive Chanel fan. They are also launching their new Velvet foundation which has a matt texture its not a texture I normally go for as I love a dewy face but this one feels like silk on the skin.

Hope you had a great week.
