Back in April this year I was presented with the exciting task of being the Beauty Reporter for my friends at Black Magazine during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia alongside my fashion family Thom Kerr (Australian Editor), Sarah Birchley (Australian Fashion Editor), Iggy Rosales (Australian Hair Editor) and Brooke James (Filmmaker).
It was a fun but crazy week (cannot wait to do it all again next year!) with long days running from backstage interviews to shows, managing social media coverage and writing reports each evening for the Black website. You can check the coverage out HERE.
The day after the shows finished we wrapped up our week by shooting a story for the magazine with one of our favourite faces, Marthe Wiggers at IMG. Sarah sourced a collection of some of the most stunning pieces shown during course of the week from Kate Sylvester, Gail Sorronda, Ellery, Toni Maticevski and Strateas Carlucci.
For the story I created an ethereal and youthful makeup for Marthe using products from MAC Cosmetics (full product breakdown below), the official makeup sponsor of MBFWA.
Brooke also shot this cute and quirky short fashion film with Marthe on the day in between shots. The makeup translated really well onto hd film which I'm delighted to see, especially the luminous skin tone, which I'm absolutely living for. You can check it out below or on the Black Website.
The story has been featured on the cover and inside the latest issue of Black Magazine which is available now internationally.
