London Fashion Week AW14: backstage at Yifang Wan fashion show


I was lucky to get invited once again by The Body Shop to report back to you some of the backstage action from the Fashion Scout's venue during London Fashion Week. I've arrived early today ready for the first show of the day - Yifang Wan. The head make up artist was Claire De-Graft who quickly talked me through the today's look. 


The face was prepped with Vitamin E Moisture Cream, followed by the All-In-One BB Cream. To add some dimension and a little bit of shimmer, a delicate swipe of Radiant Highlighter and pink-toned Brush On Radiance beads were also used. Claire also cheated her way to contoured cheeks by actually using Brow & Liner Kit - definitely not the standard contouring product. On the eyes, the darkest blue shade from the Shimmer Cube Palette was used, but to get the looks of barely-there colour, make up artist first applied it on a brush, dabbed on her own hand and then very carefully swiped the brush across the eyelid with the remaining residue to get just a hint of colour. The corner of the eye and brow bone were highlighted with Colour Crush Eyeshadow in Sugar Glaze. Unruly brows were tamed with Brow & Lash Gel - one of Claire's favourite The Body Shop products. The lips also stayed neutral with the dab of Extra Virgin Minerals Compact Foundation and Vitamin E Lip Balm. To seal the deal, just before they walked on the catwalk, each of the models's faces was sprayed with Vitamin C Energizing Face Spritz to achieve fresh, dewy and glowy look.
