Oh, what a night! Talk about ending London Fashion Week with a bang! AOFM held a fabulous party at the Connaught Hotel just next door to Vauxhall Fashion Scout on the last night of London Fashion Week. Sponsored by Fashion TV, this party didn’t disappoint! The fab F Vodka cocktails and champagne flowed all evening as we danced the night away to various entertainment including DJ’s, sax players, eScala and singer Trix. The crowd were a fantastic mix of magazine editors, beauty pr’s, celebrity hairstylists and makeup artists, stylists and fashion designers, many of whom had contributed to the book.

The party was in celebration of the re-launch of AOFM’s book, Makeup is Art This issue has a beautiful new cover, 70 new additional pages and has a brand new publisher. It’s being printed in 5 languages and makeup range Kryolan has purchased 3000 just for their boutiques in Germany.
I feel very privileged to have contributed as a beauty writer and as makeup artist on a variety of shoots. There is so much fantastic talent who have worked on this book including fashion stylist Rebekah Roy. The book will be sold at the Soho Book Store and Charles Fox in London and is also available on Amazon.com.

I have admired Bora Aksu’s work for many years – it’s very visceral feeling, sometimes you just like something because you like it and it doesn’t need defining.

I love a cool cuff. Something big but not too big, a bit rock ‘n’ roll and a bit vintage – not so easy to find but Peter Lang has quite a few styles to chose from! He’s is based in Australia but his style is very London. All the pieces are hand cast and are often adorned with Swarovski crystals.
“Each piece I design is a product of the love of my craft. The main function of any piece I design is that of total wear-ability. It’s so pleasing that Peter Lang jewellery can be worn season after season giving the customer timeless joy. I hope that my jewellery designs of today are the Antiques of tomorrow.” – Peter Lang

During London Fashion week I always try to pop by a few shows or presentations in between the shows I am working on. It’s so much fun to rummage through another makeup artists makeup bag to see what products they love to use. I went to see the Saloni Lodha’s presentation headed by makeup artist Georgina Graham and sponsored by MAC. Georgina wanted the models to have the feel of hot house flowers. The look was really beautiful. It was delicately highlighted and had an interesting lip that went from tangerine blended into a violet purple. It had a sense of ladies in the steamy heat of New Orleans. I fell in love with this new lavender MAC fix+ she was using. It looked gorgeous on the model’s skin. I loved it so much that I went straight to the MAC Pro shop to get some only to be told that she was using a sample of a product that hadn’t even come out yet, as were quite a few of the products she used! MAC often test runs their products with various artists during fashion week before they mass produce them. Oh the makeup envy!!
Here’s a list of what products Georgina used to get the Saloni makeup look
MAC Care blends Essential oils, MAC Studio Moisture lush moisturiser, MAC Lip Conditioner
MAC Face & Body Foundation, MAC Studio Stick Foundation was pre mixed with MAC Cream Colour Base in Bronze to create a cream textured bronzer
