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!

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.
Vicky’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!

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.

These are the ultimate simple and casual looks that continue to be beautiful and stylish. The classic colours – red, white, blue and classic prints – polka dots, stripes and checks never seem to go out of fashion. I believe almost anyone can rock the classic polka dot dress or a pair of cute striped shorts no matter what body type.
This trend can be transformed into anything! From sophisticated to casual, from catwalk to the high street. Everyone seems to want a piece of the classic look that is almost always in the stores.

For this shoot I really wanted to create four looks that incorporated the vintage/retro style while still keeping it on trend. I mixed certain pieces with items that can be found in your wardrobe or in the shops at the moment. The one thing that made this shoot work was the beautiful setting of Sydney’s harbour along with the backdrop of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. I could shoot at this location again and again and NEVER get bored. It just was the perfect location to launch EMPIRE EVE. It truly reflected my own style and my love of Sydney as a city. Everything just came together perfectly on the day and overall the look was what I wanted from the beginning so……. hope you all enjoy the photos!
