Welcome to the EBONY.com Backstage Beauty Bum Rush! We're going behind the scenes with some of fashion and beauty's most acclaimed stylists and key artists. In this segment, Melanie Yvette Martin sparks up an engaging chat with Romero Jennings, lead MAC makeup artist and key artist for fashion designer Katie Gallagher on the look he created for the young designer's Fall/Winter collection.
Enjoy a quick chat between EBONY magazine Associate Beauty Editor Janell Hickman and Gina Edwards, lead manicurist for Roccoco, as they gush about the nail trend Edwards created for the Edun Fall/Winter presentation.
MAC lead makeup artist, Fatima Thomas also keyed the Haus Alkire presentation, creating a subtle, icy and glowing look. Always full of valuable information, Thomas shared with us the ways in which women of color can translate her signature creation from day to night.
Finally, I spotted a beautiful model sitting in the cut with a big bright smile on her face! Nyamuoch Girwath dished on a day in the life of a Fashion Week model, and boy does her life get hectic. A darling nonetheless, we shared laughter as she waited her turn to get glammed up for her catwalk at the Haus Alkire presentation.
But the fun doesn't end there! We're keeping you updated on the hottest trends in beauty, hair and nails so you'll be ahead of the game for Fall and Winter!
