QVC Facewalk

QVC put on a catwalk show with a difference at the Hospital Club – it was the first ever ‘facewalk’ – concentrating solely on makeup creations.

The show started off subtly as three models in nude body stockings wore the NUDE makeup look.

But the next looks soared the appliance of makeup to new heights with the theme of SKY and SPACE.  SKY’s face in shades of light blue was a picture of floating clouds and SPACE in black, a galaxy of planets and stars.

FLOWER power came next. Reminiscent of the hippie 70s era, the first look of painted flowers adorning the whole face was a great look for any music festival, especially when combined with the long tousled hairstyle.  The second FLOWER look had more of a couture feel to it with flowers and petals applied to the side of the face.

NU WAVE gave punk a softer glamorous look with golds and apricot shades and just a touch of sparkle. The birds nest hairstyle perched like a regal crown of spun gold, fit for a Queen Punk.

GEISHA mixed the traditional white face and red cupid bow lips of the Geisha girl with modern touches of feather tipped long lashes.

BIRD was a tropical species with a golden nose, circles of red and blue around sparkly eyes and of course the feather tipped long lashes.

Alongside were the more wearable looks such as Glamour and Earth Beauty but as with the regular catwalk shows it is always the more adventurous and outrageous looks that make a lasting impression.

Makeup brands used were Jemma Kidd, Bobbi brown, Smashbox, Laura Geller, Eyeko, Dalton Cosmetics, Karen Alder and bareMinerals
