Difference between makeup for fashion, wedding makeup and makeup for catwalk modelling?

Makeup for catwalk modelling is slightly different from fashion modelling.

The Makeup Artist always first consults with the clothes’ Fashion Designer to see what “look” he or she has in mind.

In the catwalk situation, the models are on stage and are some distance from the audience. The lights are also very bright. The makeup has to stand out more and therefore the colours need to be a little stronger and bolder. Generally a little more powder may be used to remove any shine from the hot, bright lights.
