Last week I found myself amidst the backstage mayhem prior to the start of Kookai's fashion show. It wasn't really mayhem of course, more like organised chaos - everyone had a station, a role, and a pretty model to paint. I'm still pinching myself about it all, but the highlight of the evening was meeting Napoleon Perdis' Director of Makeup, Siobhan Kelly.

Watch on to see how this fashion show came to life..

And, be sure to check out these links for a bit more information:

  • Music by Geowulf - a local, and very talented Aussie.
  • Napoleon Perdis' DeVine Goddess Lipstick in Electra (currently sold out).
  • Napoleon Perdi's Auto Pilot Lip Service
  • Kookai's latest collection for AW 15 - dying to try on the Placid Funnel Neck Top, and The Architect Top!

Thanks for watching!

Special thanks to Two Birds Talking for providing backstage access, as well as allowing me to hang out for the show.

Makeup Inspiration: MAC Cosmetics for Monique Lhuillier AW15

Forecasting makeup trends two seasons ahead of where we are now is never an easy thing, yet I look forward to where we are heading for AW15.

Kylie Jenner's overdrawn lips are still very in - instead of nude-ish mauve, MAC opted for Lady Danger or perhaps Ruby Woo. The skin is fresh, and dewy with loads of highlighting across the bridge of the nose, atop the cheekbones, and cupid's bow. As for the eyes, they're showstoppers. Defined with an elongated outer V that refuses to extend beyond the ends of the unkempt eyebrows. Last night's mascara has shed, but in an absurd way it works here. Oily blacks and waxy browns give these eyes major impact, and mystery.

Definitely hanging out for this particular MAC face chart.
