I live in Auckland, New Zealand, where it's all about a more relaxed lifestyle. Fashion is in focus…but on our terms! The trend for makeup is natural beauty with an emphasis on looking groomed, without overdoing it. We like to try new things, like pairing neutral with a bright lip. We like living on the edge – just a little!
It's all about essentials in NZ. Strobe Cream, Eye Brow Pencils, Bronzing Powder in Golden and a myriad of lip colours are a must. For a night out it’s really about wearing a bright lip at the moment. Lady Danger, Snob and Vegas Volt are the go-to Lipsticks. We are in summer when most of the world is in winter and we try to be a season ahead, never a season behind!
Prep + Prime Lash!! I have the most annoyingly short eyelashes and the Prep + Prime Lash helps me build up volume and length before I apply my mascara. It's the best makeup secret that I have!
Graphblack will transform a natural day eye into a dramatic evening eye with a quick application along the lash line slightly smudged with a 219 Pencil Brush. Applying black eyeliner along the inner rim of the eye instantly makes your eye colour pop.
Dazzleglass!! Nothing beats a bit of Dazzleglass over your Lipsticks for a glam night out! I have loads of them rolling around on the floor of my car, so I can grab one and go knowing that they always look great!
The latest shoot is always my fave! I just created a beauty story for a New Zealand fashion mag called Black that was all about Red Lips – of course in the slightly unconventional way that I like to do things. I used my fave M·A·C red products: Russian Red Lipstick and Cherry Lip Pencil. I kept the skin flawless by using Pro Longwear SPF 15 Foundation (I'm obsessed with it) and highlighted every look with Silver Dusk Iridescent Powder – I love this product…it's finely milled for the most smooth and perfect highlight.
