Tresemmè Backstage Fashion Show

Last May 6, I was fortunate enough to get invited to the TRESemmè Runway Ready Backstage Fashion Show! Initially, I had no idea what they meant by "Backstage Fashion Show", but later on I found out that the whole concept was to showcase the magic that goes on backstage while the beautiful models get ready for the show. 

But before I share some photos from the event, let me just share the makeup look I chose for the night! All guests were required to come in black and white so I chose to wear a very bold deep red lip. Here I'm using the shade Black Cherry from NYX.
I paired the dark lippy with a pretty strong eye. I know some people say you shouldn't wear a bold lip with too much eye makeup, but I love making my own rules when it comes to makeup! It's all part of the fun of getting ready for these kinds of events. I just decided to keep the rest of my face clean with light contouring and natural looking brows so that the whole look wouldn't seem over the top.
So going back to the event itself, here's a photo of the "backstage" area where the guests stayed while waiting for the actual fashion show to start. Like I said, the whole concept of the show was for the guests to be able to witness the top hair trends get recreated before the models hit the runway. It was such a cool concept and it was so amazing to see some of my hair idols Jing Monis, Lourd Ramos, and Victor Ortega in action! I was totally fangirling on the inside, drinking wine and keeping it classy on the outside hahaha!
Also around the backstage area were these mood boards of the pegs for the show. Being the makeup addict that I am, I was naturally drawn to them and couldn't stop staring! I thought the makeup looks were sooo on point and very unique compared to the typical makeup looks we see on celebrities and models nowadays. Some of these looks included white eyeliner and my favorite thick eyebrows! The makeup looks worked perfectly with the runway ready long hair that TRESemmè's Split Repair range caters to.
 When it was time for the actual fashion show, the guests were asked to move to the stage area wherein we were presented with exclusively created ensembles by Rajo Laurel, Francis Libiran, and Rhett Eala. The fashion show was so full of drama! Below you can see how they designed the stage in such a way that you still get the backstage feel to it. We were able to see each of the country's top hair professionals fixing some of the models' hair right before they walked on the runway.
All the designs were so stunning! My friend Pia and I were in awe the entire show. Below is a shot of some of Rhett Eala's designs which really got my attention cause of all the color sweeps and painterly strokes on full skirts. I have a soft spot for anything that reminds me of watercolored paintings.
And here's a photo of some of the models from Rajo Laurel's collection. His collection was full of fringes and was my favorite of the night!
And that's a wrap for my Runway Ready Backstage Fashion Show entry! I'm a firm believer in the power of TRESemmè products and how they can help you achieve some of the very chic looks from the runway. You can read my review on the Split Repair Range here! :)
