AOFM Pro's worldwide tour ends with Grinko in Milan

Designing and executing the make-up for 40 catwalk shows spread around the worldwide capitals of fashion, I am not quite sure how AOFM does it! But, then if course it must be the teams. Observing Michelle Webb's (head AOFM Pro team make-up artist) attitude, I sort of begin to see why. 20140223-190616.jpg This amazing lady, with her distinctive red hair, seems relaxed. "Lips too glossy!" "Exfoliate, wipe it off!" "Going to have to let the models go, guys!" "Ok, sit down babes." "Ok, you can go." "I am taking four backstage." "Get a make-up bag of what we need." Even when she shouts out commands or corrections, it's done in velvet. It really is fascinating to watch and she herself carries on working throughout! It's too magical of a situation and I am dying to ask some questions, but I don't out of respect for her concentration. I do bide my time and catch her after the run-through whilst models change for their first catwalk looks. 20140223-192428.jpg Michelle, when did you start this morning for this 9:30am show? We started at 7.00. Wow! How many are on your team? On this one, 14 including me. What was your brief on this show? When we sat down with Sergei Grinko, he wanted something Middle Eastern, but modern and also with a bit of a grunge element. What has been your FAVOURITE show so far? You must be so exhausted! Moncler in New York, but there are quite a few that were memorable. 20140223-201756.jpg The show is about to start so Michelle is off to gather her chosen team of four for touch-ups, whilst I have the enviable task of accompanying Jana Ririnui, ONE of THE directors of AOFM to the front row for the Grinko FW2014 show: 'Introvert'. Many exciting things are in the pipeline for AOFM in the next couple of months, but I have been sworn to secrecy...
