MEXICO October 26 - 30 2017 


Mexico Grand Prix Weekend & Amber Lounge

October 2017 

Join us as we travel to Mexico City for one of the most exciting events of the year - the Formula 1 Grand Prix. Global Hair & Makeup is the backstage team for the hottest show in town - the prestigious Amber Lounge.


The Global Hair & Makeup team will travel to Mexico City to create amazing looks backstage at the Amber Lounge Charity Fashion Show runway show that is staged on Saturday night. 

This show combines fashion, glamour & Formula 1

This tour is about providing makeup artists with an experience that they may not normally have access too. You will be led by makeup artist Liz Bomben and be part of an elite backstage team working a glamorous runway show.

The tour is 5 days/4 nights which will allow enough time to enjoy this exciting city. Mexico City is said to stage the best Formula One race in the world. Late October/early November is also the time of Día de Muertos (the Day of the Dead) in Mexico. This provides a wonderful opportunity to team members to extend their trip and take in the culture of Mexico. As the team often comes from around the world, the team will meet in Mexico City and stay together for the duration of the tour. This is a highly valuable part of the tour because not only do you develop friendships with other team members but the chance to swap ideas and discuss techniques is highly valued. Those traveling from Australia may like to travel together.


Global Hair & Makeup is the official makeup team for the Amber Lounge Charity Show, the most anticipated social event on the F1 calendar. 

Established in 2006 under the High Patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco, the iconic Amber Lounge Fashion Show is the only event in the world to feature Formula 1 drivers on the catwalk. Past Amber Lounge F1 Models include the likes of Lewis Hamilton, Nico Rosberg, Daniel Ricciardo, and Valtteri Bottas.

The fashion shows, which took place in Monaco, Singapore, and Mexico City in 2016, push the limits of high fashion by combining couture, motorsport, and thrilling live entertainment. Past collections to feature on the Amber Lounge runway include Ted Baker, Melissa Odabash, Julien Macdonald, Philipp Plein, Hervé Léger, Missoni, La Perla, Chopard, Osman, Sean & Sheila and Jimmy Choo to name a few, and past performers to have opened the legendary show include John Newman, Estelle, Taio Cruz, Kellis & Labrinth.

Formula 1 drivers, models, ladies of F1, entertainers and celebrities all come together to walk the runway in aid of charity. This event is covered by the world's media & Global Hair & Makeup will be there.
