 Last Sunday, I went back to Tucson for the night to attend a fashion show "All That Glitters: a night of beauty." I was invited to be apart of the VIP guest list, which allowed me to attend the event before the public to mingle and go behind the scenes of the runway. Haute Chocolate designer Terysa Ridgeway and Too Beautiful Cosmetics founder Tonya Strozier collaborated to mix fashion and makeup. The event was divided into three shows Earth, Fire, and Ice; displaying makeup and fashion that corresponded to each theme. Before each show, Terysa Ridgeway provided a live demo of how to create the runway looks using different techniques and methods with her makeup line Too Beautiful Cosmetics. From glitter eyeliner to ombre lips, she demonstrated up and coming trends as well as how her makeup can be used in various ways. Once the make up tutorials were done the shows began.  Earth consisted of neutral tones from browns to golds, Ice had cooler tones of whites and blues, and finally Fire with red and blacks. The designs from Haute Chocolate are made to order so they can be custom fit for each individual. With clean lines and sharp details Haute Chocolate is bringing something fresh to the fashion scene. Once the shows came to an end it was time to mingle and network. I caught up with Terysa and Tonya a little bit after the show to talk about their amazing work. We had met during our BRAG fashion show where I first discovered their amazing talents. Afterwards, I met fashion bloggers Natalie and Lindsay from Couture in the Suburbs where we talked a little bit about our blogs. Over all the night was filled with glitz and glamour to say the least. It was great to see familiar faces as well as meeting some new ones. I can't wait to take attend their next fashion show in the future.
