Men’s Makeup: Flawless Skin at Dunhill SS20

If you thought the backstage grooming process for men’s fashion week was any less intensive than the women’s shows, you’re wrong! Being backstage in Paris for the men’s collections is just as chaotic and fun as any other fashion week occasion, and this year’s Dunhill SS20 show was no exception…

Fashion week in Paris is always a fun (and hectic) affair, and the Dunhill show is always one of my favourites of the menswear calendar. Designer Mark Weston showed another gorgeous collection for his Dunhill SS20 show, and I was backstage to create the clean, skin-first look to fit the strong but sensuous line for next season. The styling team for the show was Elliott Smedley, Matt Mulhall and me and I decided to opt for a gorgeous, glowing skin finish that will translate perfectly to the real world. In my show kit for menswear shows I tend to combine some of my favourite unisex products plus a few male-focused heroes. I even road-tested my new foundation for Max Factor… But you’ll have to wait for more details on that! Want to give the look a go at home? Check out my show kit, below.
