#WMCFW Fall/Winter 2015: Backstage Pass

The end of Fashion Week always seems to be bitter sweet for me, whether it’s missing the people, the hustle or simply just having my days filled with everything fashion and beauty, there has yet to be a season that I don’t miss. Looking back on last week we saw many shows, hair styles, nail designs and makeup looks that will have us begging for fall/winter 2015, but let’s not get too ahead of ourselves just yet, we still have spring/summer to enjoy.

Here’s a look back on what we loved most during World MasterCard Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2015, from the runway to backstage we are excited to share with you exactly what we were chatting about last week.

REDKEN Canada showed us many different hair looks throughout the week, but there was one common trend that we saw popping up in many of the shows, braids. This Fall/Winter 2015 is all about the braids and who doesn’t love a good braid, they are easy to do and always look great both on and off the runway. I got a chance to have one of REDKENS elite hair stylists recreate the braid look from David Dixon’s runway show, it looked great and is a look that’s it easy to do at home.

MAYBELLINE Canada always surprises us every season with new make up trends and products that are absolute must try’s. This season it was all about that perfect highlight using Face Studio Master Prime, the soft pink created a natural and flawless glow that made each model simply shimmer with beauty. The Mikhael Kale beauty look was all the rave with the stunning pop of colour in the inner corners of the eye using the Colour Sensational Vivids Lip Colour, making it a great way to get even more use out of your everyday favourite products.

An ESSIE nail can change a lot in a show, the finish, the design and the colour really do make a difference between shows. What I love most about the outstanding designs by Rita Remark is that they not only reflect the collection, they bring out the designers vision in a way that speaks to beauty lovers.

Day 3 of World MasterCard Fashion Week brought us two different ESSIE creations for one big fashion day! The shows, the designs and the nails created a mix between texture and pattern. Mackage was all about creating that matte finish using matte about you over berry naughty creating a beautifully finished negative space nail that complemented the collections 70’s inspiration.

With the collections 70’s glam inspiration, the patterns, colour and combinations were a great choice to complement this fun loving collection. Using meet me at sunset, naughty nautical, mod square and butler please these eye-catching nail designs will definitely become a popular nail trend during any season.

BEAUTY: Wrap Your Nails Up In Texture

This winter is all about staying warm and what better way to warm up than to wrap yourself up in warm textures like cashmere, velvet and a little bit of sparkle. Nail art is a great way to express yourself and just like any trend, it’s perfect to change things up by having a little fun with colours, patterns and my personal favourite, texture.

Try a satin-matte textured nail that will have your nails looking perfectly wrapped up in the finest of fabric that feels as luxurious as it looks. The new Cashmere Matte collection by Essie is a great way to add a clean and soft matte finish to your manicured fingers.

Keep your nails warm this season with a soft and velvety finish. Ciate London helps create the perfect textured finish to your manicure. This fuzzy and fashionable finish is a great way to create a textured nail that will have people talking about how you accomplished such a unique nail.

Add some jewels to your look by creating a textured dimension to your nails the same way you add jewels to your wardrobe. A sparkly finish was a common trend seen on the runway at both New York and Toronto Fashion week with the Colour Show Jewles by MAYBELLINE. These textured sparkles are a great way to make a textured statement this season and add a little extra glam to your winter look.
