Poolside Chic Hair + Makeup at the David Jones Spring Summer Fashion Launch
Tonight in Sydney, David Jones played host at its highly coveted Spring Summer Fashion Launch. The hair and makeup looks channelled poolside chic with skin and styles that'll have you pining for balmy nights by the water. Shu Uemura's international artistic director, Mr. Kakuyasu Uchiide, worked with a very chic colour palette for the eyes and lips but says the texture of the skin is key to nailing the look at home. "The base makeup is about a natural glow and healthy skin," he says. "Shu Uemura has an important philosophy and that's beautiful makeup starts with beautiful skin."
The team prepped all the models' skin with the brand's signature Cleansing Beauty Oil, then lotion and essence. He also told us the less foundation you use after, the better. One eye makeup was made up of two eyeliners — gold and black — followed by Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte in BG930 on the lips.
The hair for this evening was taken care of by Aveda. The highlight had to be the exaggerated French roll, as pictured here on model Montana Cox. It's a modern take on a '60s inspired classic and for at-home styling, Aveda recommends Phomollient Styling Foam for those with super soft hair to add texture before styling. The interior of the hair was crimped to create a support frame and to stop the look from dropping. Use small crimpers 1cm from the roots.
