What do you enjoy most about Fashion Week?
The creativity, artistry and inspiration that come to life at the shows.
What’s your favorite Fashion Week moment ever?
Farah Fawcett attended a show that I was leading. I did her makeup to get her ready for the show. It was a fun, interesting experience as photographers were trying to take pictures through the process. Also, leading my first show 7 years ago. I created a Bobbi version of a “mermaid” look and it was a huge success.
Name 3 products in your “Fashion Week Survival Kit” (not makeup):
Mints, hand sanitizer and Visine.
Okay, now you can list makeup—what can’t you live without as you create looks for the shows?
What trends do you love from this season and what do you think will be big for fall after having seen so many?
I love the matte chocolate smokey eye and think it’ll be a great hit for fall. It’s a soft, modern version of the black smokey eye.
What trends do you think women can recreate on their own at home?
Pairing the chocolate smokey eye with a nude lip or with a sheer lip stain in a bolder color.
What Bobbi Brown product should we all be lining up to purchase this fall?
The Chocolate Palette.
