Backstage Harlem’s Fashion Row SS ’14: ESPION Atelier, Kimberly Goldson, and Modahnik

Fashion Week Harlems Fashion Row

 


One of the items listed on my ’30 before 30’ bucket list was to work backstage during the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week.  Guess what? I did it! Under key makeup artist, Ke’Na Marcell for the Harlem’s Fashion Row show for SS’14 on Friday, September 6, 2013.   Harlem’s Fashion Row MB Fashion Week shows showcase talented emerging designers of color.  I had the opportunity to do models makeup for the following designers, who had some really nice pieces:  ESPION Atelier, Kimberly Goldson, and Modahnik.

The look for ESPION Atelier featured contoured cheeks, black lips, and on some models for the same designer, a black lip was paired with a strong, samurai brow with a light dusting of silver eye shadow.

Kimberly Goldson’s models also had contoured cheeks and a black lip, except with a twist; she opted for green and gold metallic flakes on the center of the top and bottom lips of her models.

Modahnik’s models featured a neutral palette, smoky eyes with tree-like detailing around the eyes.

This was truly a  great experience! I can’t wait for more opportunities like this.  Now, I need to get featured in Essence Magazine :)
