Sydney Everest Carnival


Spring is about embracing colour, but you also need to have balance with outfit tones.

A juicy, glossy textured lip is a great way to add colour to lift a makeup look, plus be in-line with spring vibes, but not as opaque as a matte lip, which can pull focus.

A glossy lip is easier to maintain and always apply to the central lip area to avoid product build up on outer lip edge.

If gloss is sheer, use lip liner first ok entire lip to build s colour base and depth.

TIP TWO: Metallic Eyeshadow

Trends are showing a big push in metallic eyelids, this really catches the spring light and is a great way to incorporate a colour tone from your chosen outfit or headwear to bring the overall look together.

Metallic shadows are best used in the most central part of the mobile eyelid, and as close to the centre lash line as possible to really pop.

Use a lash or smoked eyeliner to define eyes and contrast from the metallic shade you choose, but don’t add to much depth to the eye that you loose the metallic effect.

Always use fingertips to apply and dab onto eyelid to avoid fall out.


Go big and go bold this Spring with headwear.

Because of this don’t overdo hair looks to out-shine your chosen millinery.

Sometimes the most simple hairstyles – like a beautifully smooth look with a little kick under and the ends for a touch of chic – works best to make other elements, like an outfit, lip colour and headwear pop.

Choose a hairstyle that compliments your headwear and work around that piece for balance and if wearing your hair out, over styling with product can weigh your hair down so it won’t last the distance – Texture spray over hairspray and very lightweight shine drops over a heavy oil.
