Real Moms Strut At Mercedes Benz Fashion Week

Heading to the Lincoln Center

written by Connecticut Makeup Artist Brandy Gomez-Duplessis

I was very excited about being a part of the makeup glam squad that was brought in for STRUT Mom’s 1st Annual Fashion Show during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York. It was cool to do makeup on real women that look like me, my age and who are mothers versus the traditional young models who are her daughter’s age. The moms were professional career women, popular female bloggers, and soon to be moms. 

The fashion show was hosted by Supermodel and cosmetics owner Iman, who is also a mother of two. I’m a mother of 2 teens and so I understands how hard it is to parent kids with a busy schedule as i travels a lot with her work. My support system is my husband, SKYPE and writing on my blog plays a big role when on the road with her family.
Backstage I was one of 10 makeup artists that gave these fashionable moms each flawless individual looks. My makeup area consisted of a full table of makeup goodies. Key items that all moms need for a full proof makeup look is what I packed my makeup kit with. One of my favorite items is Maya Water Facial Mist to hydrate and rejuvenate my overwhelmed moms. I wanted the moms to not look like they look everyday, so I gave them a glamxurious look to play up the moment. All moms need makeup items that are quick but will last all day so I selected L’OREAL Paris HIP Cream eyeliners, L’OREAL Paris Waterproof Voluminious mascara, and L’OREAL Paris Infallible 8hr leGloss. But an absolute must have that all moms need is concealer, so I selected one of my top concealers from ALCONE.
There were so many amazing highlights from STRUT: The Fashionable Mom Fashion Show but my favorite was getting to bond backstage with the gorgeous Iman who on this day wanted to not be a supermodel but a supermom. After a fun filled day Kelly and I went to grab a bite at Cafe Fiorello’s across the street from the Lincoln Center.

Mom’s Strut: Fashionable Mom Fashion Show during Fashion Week

Tomorrow morning at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week I am excited by being one of the many makeup artists doing makeup at The 1st Annual Fashionable Mom showing at Lincoln Center. The fashion show will be hosted by Supermodel Iman who is also a super mom. I was on-board as soon as I heard the title being a mom of two myself (a 19 year old daughter & 14 year old son) it was just a great way to pamper real mother’s. If anyone I understand how hard it is to be career woman who travel due to work, be a supported wife and a great mom. Remember how crazy last year was for me when I was living and working in New York and trying to be a parent and wife with my family being in New Orleans. Plus maintain our summer home in Florida. Now how I did it, hubby and I just did it, without a nanny, sitter, or personal assistants but with the help of Skype.

There will be a LIVE Twitter Party that will give up-to-the-minute updates on everything that is happening behind stage, on the runway and celebrity sightings. Plus a twitter party with a Twitterazzi Pit on the sidelines of the show for influential bloggers and tweeters to be active in the live chat that will be taking place throughout the event. And the event will be live streamed from Lincoln Center on multiple channels with iVillage.

It would be yummy if Tony Manero would stop by in strut with the ladies at the Lincoln Center.
