Hello beautiful people!

Yesterday I had the privilege of attending the “Old Fashion Morning Tea” – an event raising funds for Alzheimer’s Australia, hosted at the decadent yet adorable Hanworth house in East Brisbane. Tracey Watkins, founder and designer of clothing line White Label Noba, began this event three years ago, and is inspired by her own mother, who also suffered from Alzheimer’s.

The event was hosted by Channel 9’s Melissa Downes, who set off in a flurry back to work as her colleague Ian Skippen took over, and wowed us all with his humour and charm. The end of the event saw two auctions with major prizes up for grabs, and raised significant funds for Alzheimer’s Australia! Such a worthy cause: over 62,500 Queenslanders currently suffer from Alzheimer’s or some form of Dementia. Thank God we have brilliant minds with big hearts so eager to help those in need!

Now to the other highlight of the day: the fashion parade!

Tracey showed off 20 must-have pieces from her upcoming Summer 2016 collection. You can find the description and photo for each below (don’t forget to click the photo to see the detail! Tracey is simply phenomenal when it comes to her design and craft).

SUNSHINE COAST FASHION FESTIVAL: MAKEUP, MADELINE STUART, AND OTHER EXCITING NEWS

1 14

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.

10 26

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.

19 20

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!

KYLIES PROFESSIONAL MINERAL SHADOWS SWATCHES AND REVIEW

Hey everyone!

Logo

So as some of you know I’ll be working with Kylie Eustace tomorrow (TOMORROW!? So excited!!!) at the Sunshine Coast Fashion Festival, yay! It’s my first ever fashion show, and so in preparation I got a heap of her eyeshadow samples to play with, and I wanted to show you guys.

DSC_0003 DSC_0004

The shadows are formulated by Kylie herself, and contain fantastic, skin-loving ingredients that YOU will also love! The pigmentation on these babies are strong, and the shadow is super long lasting! All in all, I am very impressed. Don’t forget to click on the photos below to see them in large size!
