A Blue and Bronze Makeover

AFR Interview 4

There’s a bit of a story behind this makeup look. I was supposed to be having a portrait taken to appear in a major national magazine a few weeks ago, so I spent QUITE a bit of time getting ready – I even curled my hair! Once I was ready, I realised that I had overbooked myself that day, and wouldn’t be able to make the appointment. I figured it was worth taking a few pictures for posterity, so voila – the makeup look that could have been.

Incidentally, I did end up having my portrait taken, at the end of a long, hot day, when I was wearing virtually NO makeup! Kudos to the team at the Illamasqua counter in Myer Sydney for making me somewhat presentable before the photo shoot!
