By far my favorite show to work on was Bernard Chandran. The clothes were strong and influenced by
70's and 80's shapes and styles. Chandran included strong architectural body shapes, glistening gold
cocktail dresses and vibrant feathered bags, shoulders and shoes. Makeup was kept creative
and bold as could be. An makeup girl's dream !

Models wore a full face of white or dusty coral chromacake
and were then airbrushed to perfection.
I enjoyed the differentiation with chromacakes on the
variety of skin tones. The dusty coral on black skin had an almost
desert-like look, imagine a girl abandoned in the desert for hours
in her gold blitz n glitz dress trying to find her way through the
blowing red sand.
Blocked liner in black was used on the eyes and brows were drawn in black liner.
Vibrant lipmixes of purple, yellow and green were used on the models for a modern finish.

I absolutely loved working on this show, such a powerful look by the key makeup artist.
