graduate fashion week with backstage with bourjois for graduate fashion week part one ♥

I was lucky enough to be chosen by Bourjois to attend London's Graduate Fashion Week backstage, to say I was excited was an understatement. They are one of the official sponsors for the show and provided the make-up for the models on the catwalk. It was incredible seeing the renowned make-up artist Lan Nguyen and her team apply the Bourjois products to the models. There was an incredible range of Bourjois products used on the catwalk and I had the chance to ask Lan how she created the looks. One of my favourite looks that Lan created was a strong, green smokey eye. She explained that for the upcoming winter, green shades will play a big part and the look she creates with Bourjois is very bohemian inspired. The key products used to create this look included the Efect Smoky Pencil in 73 Deep Green for the waterline and bottom lash line, the Contour Clubbing Waterproof 59 in Dynamint for under the lash line, for the eyelid, the Color Edition 24hr in Light Green was used and the Little Round Pot Cream blush in 04 was used on the lips.

This look was incredibly easy to create and the Bourjois range gave incredible pigmentation without having to constantly reapply to the face. It was brilliant to see the make-up artists creating these simplistic but striking looks, I learnt so much from watching backstage and seeing the models actually wear the looks on the runway was incredible. I will be doing a part 2 of this blog post to go into more details about the Bourjois products, in the meantime I would like to say a big thank you to the lovely Bourjois team for inviting me to the show and to see how Bourjois is used on the runway!  And I also want to say how lovely it was meeting the gorgeous Em from My Pale Skin and Lorna from Studs and Dreams. A big thank you to Em for letting me use some of her photos - my camera died at the worst possible time!
