So, I know it is now 4 months after the fact, but I have been a little busy as of late! I figured it's better late than never, and wanted to share some of my behind the scenes images from this past July when I was lucky enough to work the closing show for Mercedes Benz Swim Week 2014 at The Raleigh in South Beach. I got to work with the amazing, Sherilyn Segal, and between the 2 of us, we managed to make up 20 girls in about an hour and a half to make the runway on time!
Sherilyn Segal keyed the look for the closing show, which was a combination of 4 designers. Lolli Swimwear, Beach Riot, Anna Kosturova, and Manglar Swimwear all shared the stage (and the models) which resulted in a super-sized killer show to end the week! Due to the fact that the girls were walking in multiple shows, we kept the looks simple so that it could translate from one designer to the next. The look was focused on bronzed, fresh skin with a natural looking lip. We added a bit of a simple liner to the top lash line, some mascara, and they were on their way! All except for Pia Mia, who walked only for Lolli Swim. For Pia, I added a bold pink lip, and a more dramatic set of false lashes to make her pop as she closed the show!
The energy backstage was fantastic, and the shows came out amazing! I wasn't sure, in the beginning, if we could pull off all of those makeups in the time we were given. But somehow we made it happen, because as they say in show-biz... "the show must go on!" (and preferably on time! :)
(As an added bonus, I was also lucky enough to meet the always entertaining, Dennis Rodman, backstage! What a trip!! :)
Until next year swim week!!! :)
