The Byron Bay International Fashion Festival is in its third year and was again hosted by the magnificent, five-star ‘Elements of Byron Resort’. Boasting it’s largest ever attendance, Byron’s Fashion Festival continues to grow and to cement its position on the fashion calendar for emerging labels and international brands.
This year’s event showcased an array of 24 designers with local, national and international designer brands from Canada, Israel, Hawaii, Japan and Chile.
Makeup sponsor Kylie Eustace has again returned to Byron Bays Fashion Festival with her talented team of Mineral Goddess Artists and her beautiful Mineral Makeup. This year the day-into-night program of beach shoots and indoor runway shows presented everything from swimwear to lingerie, casual and resort to evening wear. For such a big program and varied styles, three different makeup looks were needed to cover the day. As the models were shared between the designers and literally had the same base on all day, Kylie chose versatile and buildable makeup looks!
Kylie’s team of experienced event artists and emerging artists swung into action with the first makeup look a clean, fresh look for the beach photoshoot and swimwear shows. A hydrating primer and finely applied mineral foundation were used allowing natural skin and freckles to appear through. Extra highlighting was applied to the high points of the face and was key to the ‘fresh’ look. Brows were only filled where needed and were just, gently brushed. Lips were kept natural, with only a smear of clear Lip-gloss. Helen Dowsley lashes: ‘Individuals’ and ‘Inlove’ were utilised to suit the model.
The second look built on the first, with just a hint of nude brown on lips and a touch more Gloss. Eyes were depended to a wash of bronze eyeshadow across the mobile lid with a deeper lash line to give definition. The skin was kept looking fresh and dewy.
The third look was once again built upon the previous makeup, this time for a timeless, glamourous look. The eye was intensified and a gorgeous raspberry-Red lip, added the pop!
Because of its breathtaking location, excellent management and strong support, this event has become a favourite for Kylie who is already looking forward to next year’s event.
