Sun Kiss Me

thumb_IMG_2014_1024

With Summer right around the corner we’re heading closer and closer to festival season! In turn meaning celebration – glitter – fun – music and some pretty outrageous and fabulous fashion. The festival trend is everywhere at the moment and I think we should make the most of the time where it is socially acceptable to wear glitter – no questions asked.

This shoot with the gorgeous Lou brings together a truly simple summer boho festival feel that is super wearable, casual and fun. I can clearly see how now calling Byron Bay my home has influenced my own style and my ‘likes’ as a stylist being back in Sydney; luckily Lou’s personal style is quite ‘Byron boho’ making her perfect to collab with.

So excited for Summer to come and see everyone having fun with fashion and most importantly taking risks! Show off who you are and what you love!

That Postcard Summer

thumb_IMG_0963_1024

This year, I was lucky enough to escape the Australian Winter and venture off to Europe for six weeks. This trip was all about exploring – learning – freedom – eating – drinking & spending time with the people I love. These are a few of my favourite happy snaps from the trip which I hope to share and spread that European love.

Daybreaker

thumb_IMG_4516_1024

Well, thats one thing ticked off my bucket list – a sunrise photoshoot. It was an absolutely breathtaking morning when my friend Lou and I decided to head out to Curl Curl beach bright and early on a Saturday.

For this shoot, I really wanted to capture who Lou was, bring out her individuality, her style, her loves, her personality – the beach was the perfect setting for this. In our ever-changing world of trends, technology, celebrities etc we often loose sight of whats real to us. We forget the beauty in our individuality, in our own style.

I hope you enjoy the photos and start thinking about what your style is. Special thanks to Lou for modelling and to Ally who assisted with the shoot.

This colour combination of bright and black is definitely a great way to have a mix of two diverse styles.

Blue Lagoon

These eye shades are my absolute summer essentials, especially for my colour eyes which are hazel/green. So if any of you have the same you should have a palette with these colours because they complement and really make green eyes pop.

Maybelline eyeliner (my favourite)

My own rings

MAC velvet teddy lipstick

Victorias Secret Body Shimmer

Lovisa Bangles

Bali Bliss

Ok so Bali was amazing. The trip = humidity, colours, lovely people, tourists, swimming, flowers, yummy food, beaches, seafood, snorkelling, rainbow fish, shopping, bike rides, new flavours, monkeys, squirrels, birds, fish, hinduism, yoga, massage, fish spas, tanned skin, crazy roads and an overall incredible experience!

A photo can say a thousand words so I think I will leave it up to them to explain the rest of the trip, enjoy!

All Eyes on you

IMG_0929

This look I created on Jemima is very much a look that can be worn in the day or at night. I used darker purples on the outside of the eye and blended it into more of a light gold on the inside of the eye. The cooler brown eye suits darker purple tones as I have used, blues and browns, these complement and intensify this particular eye colour. For the eye liner I used quite a thin line with a slight flick and brought it round under the eye. Be careful with liner and you have to know what works for your eye shape.  In order to keep the eye open and not darken it too much I stopped the line halfway underneath the eye but I could have made it shorter.

IMG_0893Vicky’s cool blue eyes look beautiful with this colour combination of peachy pinks, greys in the outer corner and light golds. Cool blue eyes generally suit orange/bronzy shades, silvers and light to dark blues. I used a similar eye liner to Jemima’s however Vicky’s was slightly thicker, the liner really allowed her eyes to pop and stand out. I always always always use a white pencil on the inner corners of the eye, this creates the illusion of bigger eyes, its a fab technique to use.

Hope this gives you some inspiration to try some new looks out!

Into the Woods

into the woods

 With Winter upon us it is even more of an excuse to stay rugged up indoors underneath our cosy, warm blankets, yet with the crisp, cold air and the warm sunshine outside my window I just had to get out of the house and into nature . The Aussie bush and another perfect Sydney day set the scene to get some beautiful shots of these two beautiful people; Mikaela and Reina.
