Like most Sex And The City devotees I have spent days glued to my television, dreaming of far away places, shoes and men…

Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine I would one day work with one of the worlds biggest Style icon’s of ALL time! Patricia Field!!!

It goes without saying that a huge part of what made the show unforgettable, was the amazing fashion.

In March I had the pleasure of working with Sex And The City Stylist, Patricia Field on an exclusive exhibition at Chadstone ‘The Fashion Capital’. Patricia, along with 20 iconic outfits from the much loved series, flew from New York to personally curate the exhibition.

So I had 2 weeks and 20 wigs to get through. Under the pump my lounge room turned into something that somewhat resembled Dolly Parton’s trailer… 

2:30am in an empty shopping centre, much like a scene out of the film ‘mannequin’ Myself, Patricia and the girls from Magenta worked through the night to bring the girls to life!

There they stood… Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda

And let’s not forget all our favourites…. Manolo Blahnik, Zac Posen, Versace and Vivienne Westwood ♥

NEW! MAKEUP TUTORIAL!

Get the Gatsby Fever!

The roaring 20’s are back and I couldn’t be more excited!!! The 1920’s saw the birth of the smokey eye!

Smokey eyes can come in any colour and they don’t always have to be a matte texture either. The classic 1920’s smokey eye is more rounded in shape than the modern smokey look. This look is also known for it’s dramatic depth of colour.

And let us not forget the deep red, super fine, pursed lip!

It’s that time of year when it’s not quite spring and not quite summer. In the words of crowded house, “four seasons in one day”.

My absolute MUST HAVE this season is Tainted Love Lip Stain by Tom Ford. Sheer, creamy and sexy. Lip stains are amazing from day, right into the night.

"Generation Q - is generation YOU! It’s what they tell you not to do; it’s what you see your true self through. It’s what is old and what is new. What you know and what you knew. It’s what you feel and what is true” Alex Box, Illamasqua Creative Director

For the longest time we have been told that age is just a number and age has no limits! As the age old saying goes “you are only as young as you feel” so why not embrace your true age and flaunt it! For true makeup fans beauty has no limit, and neither should your age!

Illamasqua brings us real women with a passion for makeup and a sense of their own beauty with Generation Q. Dare to get in tune with your alter ego once and for all!

Illamasqua is standing up against the industry rule of “only wearing matt” products and concealing your real identity under a sea of “beige” after a certain age. Complementing and empowering your true beauty, shimmer is adorned to accent, highlight and lift features. Generation Q is a celebration of today, where beauty and creativity has no sell by date.

Sydney Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival has come to an end. I caught up with Maybelline New York Makeup Director Nigel Stanislaus to get all the latest trends, hot off the runway!
"The latest favourites this festival are Ultra dewy holiday skin & a Bright lip. We are bringing back the ‘holiday glow’ into our faces & putting our main focus into the mouth. 
Everyone is always asking me what I used,
I recommend using Maybelline NY FitMe foundation mixed in with a little scent free moisturiser for that tropical finish. 
Plus one Colour that was the hot favourite - Maybelline NY ColorSensational Lip Colour in Coral Crush.
Their lashes are all defined delicately with Maybelline Full&soft mascara.
As Maybelline is all about from the catwalk to the sidewalk. 
This festival, all the looks are dedicated specially to real women, to serve as an aspiration. So every girl that walked down the runway looked more beautiful than eclectic .” - Nigel Stanislaus, Makeup Director for Maybelline New York
