Go behind the scenes to find out how the Miss FQ team pulled off an intensive runway show and looked on point doing it.
When you work in an industry like fashion there’s a perception that it’s super luxurious and premium (which admittedly, is partly true) often masking the intensive work, long hours and hustle, hustle, hustle required – especially during fashion week! That’s why, when it comes to getting ready and putting on a show, we rely on products that we know work as hard as we do.
Why go drop a small fortune on a delicate mani-pedi that’s going to chip as soon as you pick up a clothes hanger when you can skip the appointment, have your nails looking pristine in under 15 minutes and get the show on the road?
While liquid foundations tend to be one of the more difficult formulas to achieve an even finish with, fashion editor Danielle relies on the GP2 Buffing Foundation Brush to provide a streak-free base leaving her skin looking smooth and perfected. In the words of Meghan Trainor, Danielle is all about that bass, ’bout that bass (no trouble?).
With less than 2 minutes to reapply her face after a full day running errands, managing editor Sally-Ann reaches for the GD2 Highlight-Contour Fan Brush to whisp away any unwanted powder and diffuse any hard lines, while Miss FQ associate editor Phoebe – who looks impeccably polished around the clock – adds highlighter to the bridge of her nose and cupids bow with the GD3 Precision Highlight/Contour Brush for a just-woke-up-like-this glow.
Senior art director Alice has been working tirelessly all week to get our latest issue of Miss FQ sent to print while juggling shows at NZFW. When it came to getting ready, Alice’s focus was to look wide awake and mascara just wasn’t cutting the mustard. Turns out, all she needed to boost her look was a layer of 24. Miranda lashes adding 2 full-bodied, textured layers to her natural lash lines. We mean, hello? How professional do they look?
Lucy, our features director, is a practical kinda girl. Not one to go overboard with her beauty approach, Lucy opts for the 225. French Pink nails to elevate her look. Who knew you could have long-lasting salon nails in less than 15 minutes? Lucy knew. And now we have her secret.
In between interviews with hair stylists backstage and helping Danielle out on steaming the runway garments, Miss FQ beauty editor Megan unrolls her compact travel brush holder and gets to work post-haste on blending her mineral foundation with the GP2 Buffing Foundation Brush. Too easy.
