The Annie Segua 2011 Silver Label Collection Fashion Show was my kick off show for NY Fashion Week/ Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. The show was held at Midtown Loft on 267 5th Ave. The show was keyed by Makeup Artist Diana Manzanares and Hair Stylist Melissa Paldino. Makeup was sponsored by L'OREAL Cosmetics and Hair was sponsored by Sexy Hair.
Diana did the first young lady for us to show the look that she wanted for the models. Her vision for the makeup was Marilyn Monroe in the 21st century. The color palette was neutrals and gold. Eyes: contoured using a shimmer gold. On the lid: deeper brown fading out outwards to create depth and a slight sultry effect using black liquid eyeliner and fading out with shadow. Face: contoured with powder and bronzer to give a sun kissed glow. Cream highlighter was mixed with foundation and on the cheekbones for a dewy look. Lips: painted with a copperish, rust penny like color.

Show time was at: 4:00 pm
