I was absolutely thrilled when I found out that Alesha Dixon was going to be performing at the Look Show  at London’s Royal Courts of Justice because since meeting her at the Avon event, I totally love her!
She is such a brilliant performer and so full of fun and guess what?! She performed Scandalous!! I think I am going to have to upload my video of that to Youtube for sure! It was a fab blast from the past!
Kelly Brook opened the show and she too look completely stunning. Have a look.

She just looked like she was having so much fun which always makes me smile.
I went backstage to check out the hair and makeup and I was so impressed by the serenely calm and organised atmosphere. It was a real joy to be there.
The hair look was created by Toni & Guy and inspired by the Chloe AW12 look. I loved it. There were lots of lovely soft, voluminous, fluffy waves and textures. I chatted to the head stylist who explained the process to me.
The hair was prepped using Label M Volume Foam and Extra Strong Mousse section by section on dry hair and then was dried in using a hairdryer particularly on the roots for extra volume.

It was then tonged vertically in random  sections and pinned up while it set.

Next it was brushed out and sprayed with Label M Dry shampoo to give it extra volume and fluffy texture. It was gorgeous. Keep reading to see it on the catwalk.
The makeup was stunning too and created by recently relaunched brand, Smashbox Cosmetics. There were 2 looks. The smoky eye:

It was created using this gorgeous Smashbox palette, Smokebox. The lip is Smashbox Nylon Nude which is beautifully creamy.

The second look was all about the lip.

This was dewy skin created using Smashbox Studio Skin, set with Smashbox Photoset Finishing Powder (a personal favourite of mine).
The lip is Smashbox Vivid Violet. It’s stunning.
And here are the looks on the catwalk in what was the highlight of the show for me, the amazing Warehouse coats. I loved them!
