On Wednesday night I attended the Evening with Vogue and Mecca Cosmetica at the Langham Melbourne. I along with other beauty and fashion lovers got an insight into this SS13/14 latest makeup trends.
The Langham Melbourne is gorgeous as it is but when you walk in into a space so beautifully decorated as it was last night It was something else. From the beautiful floral that greets you upon entry to the delicious canapés that kept on coming. Ohh and of course never forgetting the yummiest desert bites out.
My highlight from the night was meeting other Melbourne based bloggers.
I was introduced to Yishan from Beauty Swatch , Celina from Fables In Fashion , Christine from Beautyholics Anonymous , Valerie from Ponikuta and Clinique’s It Girl Ling from The Best Beauty Blog.
Lovely ladies who were my company on the night.
The gorgeous Sigourney Cantelo Vogue Australia’s Beauty and health director presented to us Mecca Cosmitica’s latest trends along side Tony Baumann head of Artistry at Mecca.
THE FOUR TRENDS DISCUSSED:
1-Polished, 3D, Radiant skin- Contour
2- Statement Lips- Bold, Confident Colour
3- Contoured eyes- Soft Elongated and Elegant
4- Foiled Eyes- Modern Metallic
This was taken from Vogue website missed first trend slide 😛
*From the night I discovered that contouring isn’t so hard to master after all.
Just remember “it’s like your drawing a revers 3 on the side of your face” advised Sigourney.
*To get great looking lips one need to exfoliate them.. something I do at least once a week using sugar and olive oil, a tip shared on the night by Tony himself.
* Use loose powder to set your make up and not pressed powder as many of us have thought to be the way.
*I’m going to work on perfecting my skin to get that nude polished and effortless look-
I’m working on it!
Yummy cupcakes and of course the macarons
There is always a first for everything right 😛
The complimentary pack included the October edition of Vogue and some beauty products by Mecca Cosmetica.
