If you are a fashion enthusiast like myself then I’m sure you’ve heard of New York fashion week and you know it’s an event everyone looks forward to. If you do not know what it is, then you’re in luck, let me explain to you.
New York Fashion Week (NYFW) is an event that takes place twice a year, including one week at Bryant Park in Manhattan. Fashion Week is full of shows and events that allow fashion designers to display their latest collections to influential buyers, the press and the general public. It is one of four major fashion weeks in the world, collectively known as the “Big 4,” along with those in Paris, London and Milan. This is the time that fashion and makeup lovers learn latest styles and trends in the fashion and makeup industry.
Since 2009, Maybelline New York has sponsored New York Fashion Week. With Maybelline New York as the makeup authority during the season, they took two local talents from our continent this year: Our very own Ghanaian Makeup Artist and lead artist for Glitz Africa Fashion week, Alexandrina and Nigeria’s most sought after makeup artist and Creative Director for Maybelline New York West Africa, Bimpe Onakoya.
This is Huge for Africa especially Ghana & Nigeria.
Bimpe was the key (lead) makeup artist for two shows, the Rochambeau and LaQuan Smith shows where she worked on super models: Winnie Harlow, Herieth Paul, amongst others.
Alexandrina worked on models such as Mayowa Nicholas, Jessica Strother and others for the LaQuan Smith, Rochambeau, Naeem khan, Carolina Herrera & Jonathan Simkhai shows.
A Look into the shows:

I have also attached images and the face chat of each show to help make it easy for you to know exactly what to use for specific looks. For more look into what happened at the NYFW check out NOWTHISISMAKEUP / MAYBELLINE on Instagram.
