I’m sitting here backstage in a tent at Sydney’s Overseas Passenger Terminal. Models are everywhere. Stylists are everywhere. Fashiony people wearing black are everywhere.
The buzz is electric.
It was an early start for me today for Day 1 of Mercedes-Benz Australian Fashion Week – out the door at 6.30am to head down with the gorgeous Maybelline girls – Georgia and Kate – and Maybelline ambassador Ruby Rose.
I’m yet to get a coffee but at least I got my hair done and face on. Thank God for concealer.
Here’s what I’m wearing. You’ll recognise these pieces if you’re a regular Keeping it Real follower. I make no apologies for shopping from my wardrobe and bringing favourites out to play over and over again. And you should not apologise either.
Each day this week I’ll be introducing you to a new Maybelline NY product – something that isn’t in store yet but something to file away and remember for when they are.
Today I’m all about the lips.
And I have the Maybelline NY Superstay 14 hour lipstick in Enduring Ruby ($18.95 and available from July) to thank for my pop of colour today. Love the deep fuchsia and I’m thinking a long-stay lippy is definitely required this week. This one coats the lips like soft velvet and is non-drying. It’s got a delicious fruit fragrance too.
Bring on the shows!
Thanks to Maybelline NY Australia, I’m blogging at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia all week. Come back each day for my take on what we’ll be wearing – on our face and ourselves – next spring-summer.
