Catwalk Make-Up

Must-Know Catwalk Make-Up Tips

It is so easy to fall into a rut when it comes to catwalk make-up. As a make-up artist, it is up to you to stay on top of the latest styles and provide your clients with the trendiest looks. While you may stir things up with a different coloured liner every now and again, switching from grey to black isn’t really that bold. So what can you do to make your clients stand out for all the right reasons?

You just need to look at the New York, Paris and Milan catwalks for inspiration. There you will always find the hottest styles sweeping through the fashion world. But how do you keep things moving forward in your own business? Learning new and exciting, forward-thinking tips and techniques is always a winning strategy.


Always Keep Seasonal Make-Up Trends in Mind


As is the case with any seasonal make-up trend, it is easy to tone catwalk make-up down for a wearable, every day look, should the need arise. A great tip is to invest in a beautiful gold eye shadow, which is blend-able, as you can use it as both an eyeliner and a shadow. This offers incredible versatility.


To create a dramatic runway look that can be seen from the furthest back row, try pairing the gold with a green/blue shadow, with the gold actually covering most of the lid, as well as shadow blending into the crease and the outer corner. After this, you need to line with black and add mascara. This show-stopping look is sure to make your client stand out for all the right reasons.
