The Magical Madness of Being a Makeup Artist at Fashion Week
Australian makeup artist Tobi Henney is no stranger to working tight deadlines and long hours, she's made up some beautiful celebrity and model faces in her time — including the gorgeous Brooke Testoni in our own popaushoots.
When she decided to go to New York for fashion week, Tobi knew it was going to be absolute madness, but magical too. NYFW kicks off a month of fashion shows — with London, Paris and Milan following close behind — so it's busy, bustling, very cold, and the eyes of the world are watching your every move! The beauty (and curse) of working as a freelance makeup artist means you're in charge of your timetable, but it's very hard to say no. That means you can have shoots, runway shows and celebrity appointments all in one day . . .
Here she shares with us her incredible diary of a day at New York Fashion Week and shows us what it's really like to be a part of one of the biggest fashion spectacles in the world.
