5 BEAUTY TIPS FOR BUSY WOMEN
I’m no longer a Fashion Week virgin.
We’re past the half-way mark of Mercedes-Benz Australian Fashion Week and I think I’ve just about got it going on.
The go-to guy… international makeup artist Nigel Stanislaus at Fashion Week with Ruby Rose.
Don’t worry, there’s no danger of being papped by an international street-style blogger any time soon. No, I’ve managed to navigate the mysterious backstage beauty world that goes hand-in-hand with fashion shows.
On one side you have the hair people. On the other, the makeup people. Models sit in rows in director chairs, rotating their svelte frames between each side, as directed.
As a beauty writer, the makeup director is the guy (or girl) you want to get in the face of.
This involves a lot of unhealthy stalking and you quickly learn that undone faces are NOT to be photographed. Done faces, on the other hand, will come alive (in an I’m-not-smiling-I’m-a-model-kind-of-way) should a camera be thrust in their general direction.
I’ve been stalking international makeup artist, Nigel Stanislaus (Nigel is Maybelline New York’s makeup artist), a lot this week. In my mind we are now best buddies. In his mind, he probably thinks I’m a crazy lady who needs to apply her makeup better.
This was probably confirmed for him yesterday when in a quiet five minutes, I grilled him for his makeup tips to help us look fresh not frazzled, when getting out the door each morning.
Here are the Top 5 makeup tips he says every busy woman needs to know:
1. Wear pink. Pink lipstick. Pink blush. “I think pink makes anyone look younger. It’s soft and it’s pretty. It just matches your skin, it makes your teeth whiter. It makes you really, really pretty.”
Nikki’s recommendation: Maybelline New York Colour Sensation Lip Colour in Born with It, $16.95. Available at supermarkets or buy here.
