A Catchup With NARS Makeup Artist Ana Albiol

With London Fashion Week about to start, we’re getting very excited to see all the incredible beauty looks on the runways. To keep our impatience at bay, we’ve been lucky enough to catch up with Ana Albiol, one of the beauty masterminds working with one of our favourite makeup brands NARS.

Talking Fashion Week With Ana

Ana is an incredible makeup artist with over 10 years experience in the beauty industry. She works at the NARS Covent Garden store as the NARS Boutique Stylist and has been involved with many fashion week shows over the years.

Find out what she had to say about all things beauty and fashion week, as well as the NARS products she loves:

Question: Which shows are you excited to see this season?
Answer:

All of them. They’re different and unique and always surprising.

Question: What is the one makeup item you cannot live without during fashion week?
Answer:

Optimal Brightening Concentrate to prep the skin properly. It reflects the light, brightening the skin in a miraculous way

Question: Can you share a backstage beauty secret you swear by?
Answer:

To save time backstage, I let the models put the lipstick on and then I do the shape after.

Question: What is your favourite makeup trend of the season?
Answer:

I love deep and bold lips! We can express the NARS brand personality and power so well through a defined and bold dark lip. Also, defined eyebrows, with character.

Question: Who is your beauty icon?
Answer:

Audrey Hepburn and Twiggy of course, and Adriana Lima is my favourite model right now.

Question: What’s the ultimate quick fix for flawless skin?
Answer:

Prep the skin with plenty of moisturizer and work with a high coverage concealer on the centre of the face.

Question: Can you share a favourite fashion week memory?
Answer:

 I remember working with Val Garland doing Erdem and she said “This is exactly what I wanted. Gorgeous”.

When the key artist likes your work… For me it’s the greatest moment in Fashion Week.
