Backstage at the Birmingham Clothes Show Live

This past week I’ve been working on one of my favourite jobs of the year, The Live. I’ve been in charge of the makeup team in the main fashion theatre again for the 4th time ( 2 times for London and this is my second time for Birmingham) . It’s exhausting and exhilarating at the same time. There are about 40 dancers and models who need make up each morning plus various celebrity presenters and singers who need to come through my makeup area each day. The atmosphere backstage is hard to explain, other than its like an electric family circus. Although it’s hard work as we often have to put on 7 shows a day, it’s an amazing amount of fun. I’ve had a lot of creative control on the design of the makeup looks which were all created using Benefit cosmetics and applied with the help from my makeup assistants from . I went for a very colourful, bright and contoured look for the show.
