I had a wonderful time again this year sponsoring and directing backstage makeup for the Byron Bay International Fashion Festival. With my wonderful team of Makeup Artists, we created four different fashion looks for the day. We started with a summer girl look, lightly changing into a 90's style bold brown lip, deepening into a golden high fashion then lastly boldly merging into a glam look with a touch of gothic-chic.
Using Kylie's Professional Mineral Goddess Makeup made it so quick and easy to accomplish all of our looks throughout the day. We only needed to apply our professional mineral goddess loose foundation powder once in the morning which the models then rocked all day. We built our looks from there.
It was amazing to work with 21 local, national and international brands in a series of shows in a spectacular Beach-side setting. The festival was hosted by the brand new five-star beach resort 'Elements of Byron.' Its lush gardens, breath-taking pools and private beach provided a spectacular backdrop to the fashions on display. It was great to once again work backstage with Fashion event veteran, Leon Kyriacou and his all-star Hair team.
Event organiser, Clint Hurrell outdid himself this year and the 2016 event blew the minds of the large crowd attending. The Byron Bay International Fashion festival is destined to become an important date on the fashion calendar for emerging labels and international brands.
So much fun! The venue was gorgeous as were all the fashions on display. The vibe was fantastic and everyone that attended was buzzing, all the backstage crew included! - I just love love love doing fashion parades!!!
Special thanks for Peter Campbell at FOM for the excellent coverage of our work at the event
