This weekend, me and my family roadtripped (if you can call it that) to the Sunshine Coast for the Sunshine Coast Fashion Festival. I was privileged to be a part of the makeup team headed up by Kylie Eustace, ABIA Makeup Artist of the Year Nominee.
A large portion of the show featured stunning swimwear in time for summer, with bold sequin and pattern work adding glam to an otherwise casual style.
Backstage was the most hectic part (but so much fun!) – we had very little light to work with, and had to side-step with the models to do any makeup touch ups.
The two main highlights of my time were (finally!) getting to meet Kylie, and watching her incredible makeup skills in action – no wonder she’s been nominated for Makeup Artist of the Year in Australia! And second, getting to meet our celebrity guest – Madeline Stuart, Model of the Year who had just come back from modelling in New York Fashion Week. She’s also recently been nominated for Australian of the Year – she is such an inspiration!
