Qasimi – The Super Model Show!

Ok, so it’s smack in the middle of London Fashion Week and although this makeup artist is uber busy running around prepping the rest of her shows, I had to give you all a few little inside snippets from yesterdays Qasimi show- it was so glamour fabulous that I was still buzzing when I woke up this morning!

First lets take the model line up- you couldn’t swing a handbag backstage without swiping a super model-YasminYasmin LeBon, Jasmine Guinness, Jaquetta Wheeler, Erin O’Conner, Lily Cole, Liberty Ross, Jade Parfit… every model was of super- spectacular status- made this pint sized 5’2 makeup artist feel mini. And they were truly some of the most lovely women I’ve had the pleasure to work with- super nice.

My makeup team were briefed on the look- red carpet glamour with a vamp- Hollywood feel- strong eyes or lips- a palette of neutrals- greys, chocolates for the eyes but a few splashes of gold or a drop of silver to lift the look- and of course to match the thousands of pounds of diamonds they were dripped in! Or the ladies had vibrant red lips matched with a flick of liquid black liner, all had some sort of added false lash and a touch of shimmer applied to the tops of their chizzled cheekbones for a highlight. I can’t wait for the photos to hit!

The collection was pure black- a very popular choice it seems for a lot of this seasons designers. And to add that extra bit of special treatment there was a food trolley back stage filled with everything from mini chocolate dessert cups, veggies pots with Hummus, tropical fruit to white chocolate covered strawberries. Qasimi is a high end luxury label and they delivered. It was such a pleasure to be the head of this show and my makeup team was pretty fab too!


Qasimi are two designers – Khalid bin Sultan AlQasimi and Elliott J. Frieze.
