New York Fashion Week Exclusive!!! Behind the scenes with Style Team for Designer Lois Samuels!

I had the honor of being invited by my friend and fellow Make-Up Artist/Beauty Blogger Felicia Walker Benson to cover backstage at Designer Lois Samuels "the lois" Fashion Show.


Lois' collection was shown at the opening of Spring/Summer 2010 New York Fashion Week on September 10, 2009 from 2-3pm at 548 Gallery in Chelsea. Felicia was the Key MUA and worked with the Designer to create a makeup look that would accentuate Lois' distinct clothing line. I got the opportunity to chat briefly with Felicia backstage about the look:

Felicia together with team of artist from makeup sponsor, Youngblood Cosmetics, got all the girls looking gorgeous. I spoke with the lead MUA from Youngblood Cosmetics, the lovely Ms. Valerie P. Hernandez and she gave me the breakdown of the beauty look:
