Catwalk makeup artistry is its own breed. As such, it requires its own set of rules—rules that backstage makeup artists are more than happy to share. Here, we gathered wisdom from artists working their magic backstage for the Spring/Summer 2018 NYFW shows. —Karie L. Frost THE ARTIST: Uzo, NARS Makeup Lead THE ARTIST: Gucci Westman, Makeup Lead THE ARTIST: Michaela Polaco, Inglot Regional Trainer THE ARTIST: Erin Parsons, Maybelline Makeup Lead THE ARTIST: Cassandra Garcia, Bobbi Brown Makeup Lead THE SHOW: Novis THE SHOW: Hellessy THE SHOW: Badgley Mischka THE SHOW: Alice + Olivia THE SHOW: Tibi "If I'm working with eye shadow backstage and need to apply it more densely, I'll crumble it— that does the trick." THE ARTIST: Keri Blair, MAC Team Member THE SHOW: The Blonds "After liquid foundation application, always go back over it with a dry brush. Why dry? You don't want to pick up product; you want to blend. I focus on smile lines and crow's feet. On the fl ip side, if you use powder, go back over it with a wet brush to 'melt' the powder into the skin." "If the skin looks good, it's the cherry on top. So, I always use my hands to massage skin care products into the face before makeup application. The massage instantly plumps skin and gets the circulation going." "When I'm creating a stained lip, I don't use actual stains. They're too hard to remove. In fact, every [product] you use backstage needs to be removable or moveable because you need to be able to change direction on a dime sometimes." "If you're using cream highlighter, mix in a few drops of an essential oil that's safe for use on skin. This allows for a more sheer application and creates that athletic highlight that really shows up well in runway photography." "Don't repeat yourself. That is really dangerous for your work. 'Oh, I did that before, so I know it's easy to do again.' That mentality takes away the joy and creativity."
