Fall Fashion in Helsinki

November 13, 2013

MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy Helsinki did makeup and body paintings for a fashion event on September 13th.

The event was arranged by Fashion Unit and had altogether 5 shows with different contents. It was held at the Helsinki City Hall, which is a historical 18th century building in the center of the city. The MAKE UP FOR EVER Academy was contacted to create the makeups of all models for that day.

The multibrand nature of the event was taken into consideration by the professors when designing the looks for the day. Outfits ranged from lingerie to evening wear to outdoor clothes, so the makeup ranged from medium to sophisticated, all the time considering the current trends in fashion. Fabulous hair was done by two super-PRO hair salons ("TS Salonki" and "Villi Vanilja" - which also celebrated its 5 year anniversary during this event with, a 12 model coiffure show between the fashion entries).

All students of the Academy and two of their teachers were doing the looks throughout the day. Altogether 30 models were made up for the show with two full body paintings to crown it.
Kaarina Kokkonen led the Academy beauty makeup team with twelve students and Julius Sepponen did the body paintings with four students. The body paintings were contracted by and custom designed for Villi Vanilja and colours were chosen according to their preference, however the technique and spirit of the work was true MAKE UP FOR EVER.

The whole day was a great success and gave the students valuable experience for working in the fashion industry. The Helsinki Academy gives big emphasis to quality internships as they are the best way to enhance the skills of the future Pros. It was also great realising body paintings not just from our own creativity, but actually with a clear visibility perspective.
