Team Americana killed it during Phoenix Fashion Week. I legitimitely felt more patriotic watching these gorgeous models walk down the runway. The makeup was of course FLAWLESS & I definitely would like to wear a couple of these outfits to my 4th of July BBQ's. The lead MUA was Gabi and she did an amazing job handling all the artists in her group. The models makeup was total Red, White, & Blue with stars on their cheekbones with their glitter highlight. The models wore a bold red lip to finish off the look. Here are some details about the designer Ashley Paige and her vision for Americana.

Check out what our graduate Gabi thought about the experience below.
I enjoyed being a lead MUA for fashion week! I liked being able to manage and lead a team to execute the look wanted.
The look of Americana was actually pretty simple. Neutral toned cut crease, winged liner with silver glitter above, bold highlight with glitter around the temple/cheekbone area, and complete with a metallic red lip and red white and blue stars on top of the glitter.
I always knew I had a knack for management of others and working well in a team but I never thought I’d be a good “teacher”/leader when it came to makeup. My biggest takeaway was the fact that I CAN lead/guide other MUAs better than I thought. Especially in a fast paced setting where we are on a time crunch I was happy I was able to help everyone on my team and execute the look. I’m glad I was also able to show you guys my potential.
At the end of the day my stylist was happy with the turnout so I was happy!
