Ritsuko Shirahama SS2015 backstage
This season, Tokyo Fashion Week started for me from the backstage of Ritsuko Shirahama SS2015 runway show. Mizu san – the principal artist for Maybelline flew in from New York to do the makeup for all the shows sponsored by the brand. He spoke very passionately about the concept behind the look he created for this collection. The designer was inspired by the movement of light and she wanted the makeup to reflect it. That and the 60s groovy vibe that was also a part of her inspiration. So Mizu san took 6os and put a modern twist on it by creating flat eyebrows and a wide frame for the eyes, cutting Maybelline Lash Factory lashes and placing them strategically at various angles. Then, he used Maybelline’s newest mascara base Big eyes and Magnum Volum’ Express to finish it up perfectly. Big eyes mascara is going to be available at the end of November. The focal point of the look was the use of white eyeliner. The illusion of light it created was undeniable.
Strong eyes like that called for a super natural skin and the minimum of eye shadows. He basically didn’t use any but when he did, he blended them with a BB mineral foundation creating a more organic look.
The nails were done in the same white shade as the eyeliner. The nail polish was provided by ESSIE and will be available for sale from November 29th as a part of Christmas limited edition collection.
This is Solomiya Zgoda – my favorite model of the season. Besides being the face of Mercedes-Benz TFW official posters, she also walked most of the shows. She is Ukrainian and the only model who greeted me with a smile. ^-^
Unfortunately I couldn’t go to the runway show itself because of work so this picture below was taken from the official TFW website.
