Project Runway All Stars

Participating with Mary Kay and Project Runway All Stars was literally a beautiful experience. Celebrity makeup artist Luis Casco and I had so much fun collaborating with each other and all of the talented designers that were on the show. There was so much creative energy all around and using the Mary Kay products really helped us see our ideas through successfully.

My favorite thing about being on the show was watching the designers come up with such fabulous ideas and then getting to work with them to take those ideas even further. We got to deliver the icing on the cake which was pretty fun. The designers worked so hard under such time constraints. By the time they came to us,they were close to having a finished product. It felt good to deliver something that they would like and relieve them of the pressure of having to do it all alone. It gave them one less thing to worry about and one more thing to be excited about.

We also had a fabulous makeup team that we worked with. Many of the other makeup artists were friends of mine from doing different shows together during Fashion Week so I knew that I could trust them and they'd deliver when Luis and I gave them any direction. They loved using all of the Mary Kay products too. It was so fun every time we opened a box of Mary Kay makeup to see what was new. It was like Christmas every day. We ended up using the Mary Kay at Play Baked Eye Trios a lot because they had good pigment pay off and were easy to take on set.

The other products we ended up using the most were some of the brighter lip colors like Mary Kay® Creme Lipstick in Sunny Citrus, Mary Kay® Creme Lipstick in Really Red, and Mary Kay® True Dimensions™ Lipstick in Firecracker. The Mineral Powder Foundations and Translucent Loose Powder were a big hit as well because they were light wearing on the skin and kept the girls nice and matte which is really important for those harsh runway lights.

Mary Kay celebrity Makeup Artist Virginia Linzee partnered with Mary Kay on Project Runway All Stars Season 3 creating fashion forward looks seen throughout the season.  Virginia has an exceptional ability to translate her vision into gorgeous looks as you will see this season.
