From South Beach With Love....

On the 22nd May I ventured down to Komune Resort at Coolongatta for the Division Model Mangement 'From South Beach With Love....' party. I worked as head makeup artist, putting together the creative direction and heading a team of 4 makeup artists. The event proved to be fantastic and the 3 fashion parades were great! Filmed by both Fashion TV and Unseen TV I am hoping that I will get a clip of some of my work. I was also interview for Fashion TV about the makeup look that we created so fingers crossed it gets aired!!!

Here is my inspiration and creative direction as well as a few behind the scenes photos from the beautiful Chelsea....

Let me know what you think?

New Branding

So things have been a bit up in the air lately with the direction I am taking my marketing and branding so I have refrained from blogging. So here's where its all at now!
As you can see my blog is now looking very different! That's because I have changed all of my branding. I hope you like it! I would love to hear your feedback! It has been a huge task changing everything and I am only part of the way there. My new website (sorry different from the preview in my last post!) is being built as we speak and should be complete by next week! I am very excited to see this all finished and in action! It will reflect all of my new branding, and I will also be able to update the image galleries a lot more often so the content will always be current.
I have also confirmed my booth at the next Wedding Links Expo at the Gold Coast Arts Centre. This is on Sunday 13th June from 10am. My team and I will also be doing the hair and makeup for the fashion parades throughout the day. So if you are thinking of using me for your upcoming wedding, its a great chance to come down and meet with me in perosn!

This Friday night I will also be exibiting at the Coomera Anglican College Ladies Night. So if you have kiddies there, come down and have your makeup touched up for free! You could also win a $50 voucher, along with lots of other prizes from the other exhibitors.

You may remember that I mentioned a while back that I did hair and makeup for a magazine that I couldnt disclose... Well it was released a couple of weeks ago. You can find the following images in the June/July edition of Coast Lifestyle Magazine.

Last week I also did hair and makeup for a photoshoot for a very well know Gold Coast Resturant that is set to open another store in Brisabane. These images should start being used very soon, so when they are I will post some up.
Also I am very excited about Australian Fashion Week this week. Unfortuntely I'm not there :(
But thanks to the 'Harpers Bazzar' app on my Blackberry is get photos of all of the shows sent to my phone! I will do a post on some of the hot hair and makeup looks in the next couple of days.
Between now and my next blog take care!
