You can almost hear corks popping and the jostle for front row elbow room from here, can’t you? L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival (LMFF) is now in full swing and for the rest of the week you can beam into Bh for behind-the-seams beauty news and updates.
Last night, local frock stars Camilla and Marc, Sass & Bide, Ginger & Smart, Jayson Brunsdon, Kirrily Johnston, Leona Edmiston and Marnie Skillings sent their latest looks down L’Oreal Paris Runway 1 on models beautified by the brushes of make-up guru Rae Morris. Here, her face chart…
The look: Modern vintage
Framed by straight, straylessly sleek brows, this face puts a modern spin on the traditional smoky eye. In more of a controlled smoulder than a wildfire haze, brownish beige shadow was swept sidelong above subtly shimmering cheekbones and fresh, natural lips.
Skin: A touchable, luminous finish came courtesy of Bare Naturale Powdered Mineral Foundation, perfected with the light-reflective Touche Magique Concealer.
Eyes: Layered with the Colour Appeal Trio in Hazel Beige, lids were then intensified with Pencil Perfect Self-Sharpening Eyeliner in Cocoa and licks of black Telescopic Mascara.
Cheeks: Hollows delicately gilded with Touch-On Colour 2-in-1 in Shimmering Bronze gave cheekbones downplayed definition.
Lips: Rich yet fresh, mouths were daubed with the new Made-For-Me Naturals Lipcolours in L’Oreal’s Colour Riche lipstick collection. The effect: natural but not neutral, with a sexy sophistication that didn’t speak louder than the eyes.
Tune in tomorrow for an updated behind-the-runway beauty report from LMFF.
