Harper's Bazaar Bride "Real Brides"

Harper’s Bazaar Brides “Real Brides”

I would like to share with you all the Harper’s Bazaar Bride “Real Brides” article which featured one of my gorgeous brides, Cosmopolitan Middle East’s Editor-in-Chief Kerrie Simon.  I worked with Kerrie leading up to & on her wedding day to create for her a timeless look which can be best described as relaxed with a hint of glamour!  Kerrie was a delight to work with & reminded me why I do hair & makeup for weddings!

Kerrie arrived for her awaiting guests on Sydney Harbour aboard an iconic Sydney ferry & she dined with her guests at Hugos Manly.  Talk about taking in the beautiful sights of Sydney!

ACP Magazines’ photographer Paul Suesse captured the stunning day.

Here’s the featured spread…

IMATS Sydney 2013

On Sat 21/9/13 I finally got a chance to attend the International Makeup Artist Trade Show (IMATS) at the Sydney Convention Centre.  HUB Makeup, Gorgeous Cosmetics & the Academy of Makeup invited me to be a part of their booth at the expo.

I performed a live drag makeup & lace-front wig demonstration.  The demo incorporated brow blocking & highlighting & contouring techniques to feminise a male face.  The demo was a hit with the attendees, the media & Dana Nye!

Highlights included:

  • Reconnecting with Dana Nye, President of Ben Nye.  It had been ten years since I first met him when he visited Three Arts Makeup College & did a makeup demo for our class.  He was very generous in giving me a great selection of his latest HD Media Pro range.
  • Meeting Rae Morris.  She was kind enough to give one of her awesome #27 Radiance foundation brushes which create an amazing airbrush finish!
  • Lastly, seeing my graduate from the Academy of Makeup, Raelene Mara & her company Model Rock Lashes absolutely rocking the expo!  When I first met Raelene her business was still in the conception stage & now it’s booming!  Model Rock Lashes is the go to brand for many pro makeup artists & avid lash wearers!  Visit http://modelrocklashes.com.

Overall IMATS was a very positive & inspiring experience.  It was great to network with industry leaders & like minded makeup junkies!  Definitely looking forward to the 2014 event!
