LMFF 2013: runway 5 & 6

20130324-201459.jpg

On Friday I headed along to see Runways 5 & 6 at L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival… As usual, the L’Oreal Powder Room looked super stylish and was swarmed by Melbourne fashionistas itching to get their nails and lips done, and tutorials on L’Oreal Paris’ new Nude BB creams.

Here are some of my highlights from the Runway, featuring sass & bide (pic 1 & 2), Lucette (pic 3), Rodeo Show (pic 4), Bul (pic 5 & 6) and the Runway 6 finale… A sea of Pure Scarlet… L’Oreal Preference Hair Colour, P67… The amazing and official hair colour of LMFF 2013.

And finally, the bottom pic is a TV presenter outside the shows explaining to his audience that milk crates were the only way to get to model height at LMFF. LOL!

As a child growing up in the ’80s, I remember my first make up discovery was blue mascara. I used to rummage through my Mum’s make up and experiment with the different colours to see what I could get away with. One day I even rocked up to primary school in Mum’s Christian Dior blue mascara. I felt so sophisticated and grown up.

I got into trouble from the principal and put on grounds duty. But it was worth it. My life had changed forever. I was in love!

So imagine my delight in receiving an update today (alas I am not in attendance) from Rosemount Australia Fashion Week (RAFW) 2011 about the Magdalena Velevska show where Bobbi Brown was the make up partner.

A bold flash of blue mascara featured as a highlight, complimented by soft dewy skin. Immediately, my memories of that pivotal day of my fashionable youth came rushing back.

Magdalena’s collection features intricate detailing and a brilliant colour palette, balanced with a clean style. Bobbi Brown teamed this with an ethnic inspired beauty look that featured a touch of ’60s influence and intricate woven braids to create a modern take on the Russian bride. All topped off with those electric blue lashes.

Makeup Director Nica Marcello, International Artist & National Education for Bobbi Brown says “Much like the fashion we take a pretty, feminine and traditional look and fast-forward it with powerful blue lashes, infused with our Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Cobalt.”

Create the Magdalena Velevska look for yourself with these products from Bobbi Brown:
– Foundation Stick (my own faithful foundation!)
– EXTRA Repair Foundation
– Face Highlighting Pen in Opal
– Beige Shimmer Brick
– Lashes coated with Long Wear Gel Eyeliner in Cobalt
– Lip Balm SPF 15 + Pale Pink Pot Rouge

I know I’m rushing out to get the Cobalt Gel Eyeliner to see if I can get away with it at work!

H-O-T Covers: Scarlett Johannson for V



How H-O-T does Scarlett Johannson look on this month’s cover of V?!

I love the romantic Farrah Fawcett styled hair and make-up. A sharp contrast from Scarlett’s usual crimson red lips and vamp style.

The look is strong and feminine. Almost innocent. Yet, very sexy. I suspect this will be THE look to emulate this coming spring.

Check out V’s article Hot for Scarlett now.
