This past weekend was super busy and fun all thanks to the amazing team from Maybelline Ghana who gave me and other the bloggers the chance to come backstage to experience the beautiful chaos that happens behind the scenes.
The key makeup artist for the Glitz Africa fashion week 2018 was award winning and first time Ghanaian makeup artist at the 2018 New York fashion week Alexandrina. She lead the team by demonstrating on Miss Universe Ghana 2017 the gorgeous Ruth Quarshie. The team of makeup artists were kept on their toes as models buzzed in and out to get their makeup done.
The main theme of the makeup for the Glitz Africa fashion show in Miss Alexandrina’s words was ‘skin skin skin’ ; so dewy fresh looks was the main look for day 1 with different lip colors depending on the pick of the designer. For the base artists use the Maybelline fit me poreless foundation, Maybelline brow drama to fill in the brows and the Maybelline vivid hot lacquer on the lips.
On Day 2 it was more of smokey dark eyes, so of course the Maybelline colossal Kajal liner was used to darken the eyes. The male models for Tokyo James had stones placed carefully placed all over their faces as the look.
Day 3 was all about color, Nonnistics went for a bold blue liner with nude lips. The artists used the blue Maybelline color tattoo liner to achieve this look.
The finale for Maybelline was the Maybelline runway which was the highlight of my weekend with the team. The models looked fantastic, each with a different colorful look as directed by Alexandrina. Below are some of the images from backstage.
