Here’s my second blog post for today – a fun recap! 🙂
Yesterday at David Pecaut Square in Toronto, fierce models were strutting their stuff in the upcoming Mikhael Kale Fall/Winter 2015 fashion featuring dresses with intricate beading, retro-circle mod themes, and lots of textures for Day 1 of World MasterCard Fashion Week!
In this show, he sought inspiration from eras with memorable looks: the 50s, 60s, and 70s.
Mikhael Kale started his own label in 2007 and has been featured in numerous prestigious publications including The New York Times Style Magazine, Nylon, and Wallpaper. He has also dressed A-list celebrities such as Beyonce and JLo!
The creative philosophy behind Mikhael Kale fashion is that garments move and breathe, acting like an extension of the person who wears the clothes. They flatter the body’s silhouette and express its strength and delicate nature.
Grace Lee is Maybelline’s Lead Makeup Artist, and she whipped up a fun look that incorporated a fun and unexpected bright pop of colour.
She gave the inner corner of the eye that “Wow Factor” by using an everyday product in a novel way. Grace Lee used a lipstick to create that brilliant orange that graced each model that walked the runway.
First, she started with a smoky eye using Eye Studio Color Molten Eyeshadow Duo in Midnight Morph and Eye Studio 24hr Color Tattoo in Barely Branded for a neutral tone.
Lashes were coated with Lash Sensational Mascara for a dramatic effect, and brows were shaped using Eye Studio Brow Drama (the clear version).
To add that punch of colour to the inner corner of the eyes, Grace Lee used Color Sensational Vivids Lip Color in Electric Orange. This created an unforgettable, head-turning look!
Since the orange accent was the focal point, she kept the lips simple and fresh with Color Sensational The Buffs Lip Color in Nude Lust.
On the face, she used Face Studio Master Prime to create a wonderful glow, followed by the Fit Me! Foundation Stick and Fit Me! Powder. Then, she highlighted skin with Baby Lips in Quenched and Eye Studio 24hr Color Tattoo in Barely Branded.
On nails, Rita Remark, Essie Canada’s Lead Nail Artist used Sand Tropez and Blanc.
Rita Remark said, “I sought to redefine the typical ‘nude’, utilizing neutral polish colours to make a statement nail look. The result is versatile, yet strikingly unique at the same time.”
Check out the rest of this post for tons of photos of the Mikhael Kale fashion, as well as the makeup and nail looks!
Which is your favourite fashion look from the Mikhael Kale World MasterCard Fashion Week 2015 show? If you could ask Grace Lee or Rita Remark anything, what would you ask? Would you try this daring pop of orange in your inner corner? Do you dig the manicures?
I’m not a fan of some of these outfits, but the nails are gorgeous!
Glad that you enjoyed the nails! 🙂
look like you had a great time Mary. The outfits are you know a bit futuristic but that’s how every fashion show is they put out the new stuff very very early. The nail polish looks great. Look like you had an awesome time. I love to check one out some day. Great review.
I went to the World MasterCard Fashion Week later on, and it was such an incredible experience, seeing the frenzy of the hairstylists, makeup artists, and nail artists working during what’s called the Quick Change! 🙂 I may blog about it later. We’ll see! So many posts on my to-do list!
This looks like it was so much fun! I love fashion and makeup always work together so it will be interesting to see what colors will come out in fall/winter (not like I want it to happen anytime soon).
Haha, yeah, I’m not cheering for winter to roll by again, either! 😉 So happy that the weather is mild now!
I kinda really love the Orange/coral corners in the eyes. I don’t think
I could pull off orange, but I would totally try that with a different bright color!
Hey Karyn Kirke!
It’s such an unexpected pop of colour. I don’t think I could pull it off, either, but only because I wear glasses, and the accent colour of my frames has red. If I used orange on my eyes, it might look a bit ‘off’. But I can still admire the look! 🙂
