The end of year is fast approaching and we’ve just stumbled into party season. If you’re just as fashion obsessed as I am, then you will agree that we barely need an excuse to get dressed up to the nines to hit the town with our besties.
Although it’s fun to get done up, it can also be a lot of work and there’s no better feeling than leaving it to the experts to elevate your look.
I recently attended a formal red-carpet affair but to ensure I was spotlight ready, I visited the team at Rokstar hair salon for the ultimate makeover. I was a little nervous because I have my style uniform. I know what works and what looks good on me and I don’t like to venture far away from my comfort zone, particularly when it comes to makeup.
Hairdresser extraordinaire, Brodie-Lee Stubbins challenged me to wear my hair in a sexy, undone up-do. I never put my hair up when I go out and I didn’t think this would be something that I could pull off. To my delight, she proved me wrong and I graced the red carpet with a hair look that complemented my face shape, enhanced my eyes and gave me major confidence as I strutted down the runway of photographers.
Sarah Smith from Make Me Over Artistry is the in-house makeup artist at Rokstar and she is a true beauty stylist. I tend to shy away from over the top makeup as I’ve never felt like my authentic self under a ton of it. I expressed my preference that I like medium coverage without the caked on feeling. I also told her that I get frustrated because it’s hard to have my foundation matched to my skin tone. As a true professional artist, Sarah mixed two foundation colours together to achieve the perfect base to suit me.
Throughout the makeup experience, Sarah gave me tips and tricks on contouring, highlighting, eye makeup application and more. I learnt so much and felt comfortable asking questions. We also had a few little laughs as I watched my confidence start to shine through. She caught me a few times making fierce eyes or a little pout in the mirror because I felt like I was slaying.
The final makeup look starred bold eyes with sexy fluttery lashes and a nude kissable lip.
Sarah and Brodie worked together to create a look that would enhance and celebrate my best features. I loved the result and that evening I received so many lovely compliments. My fashion friends were blown away with my makeover and encouraged to embrace it more often.
I can’t recommend Brodie and Sarah more highly. They gave me glam squad goals. Despite them challenging the barriers of my comfort zone, there were no egos, just a love for style.
They have their client’s best interest at heart and want to elevate their beauty game so they can slay the night away.
