I’ve just returned from a week in Australia. In eight days I managed to squeeze in a good friend’s wedding, a few days meeting the two new babies another good friend has popped out since I last saw her, a couple of days at the beach, and a day long makeup seminar with Rae Morris. The latter is the part I’m guessing you guys are going to be most interested in, although I’ll throw in a photo of the wedding makeup I did just for fun. You looked stunning Jewels! Photo by Meeks Photography Anyways, back to Rae. Rae Morris is this stunning creature. She is a top Australian makeup artist and the author of five best-selling makeup books - have a flick through them out at your local bookstore. If you’re looking at her first book, she has since changed her stance on using shimmer on older eyes - apparently Cindy Lauper was quite a harsh task master and changed Rae’s mind on that. Matte for the win! The majority of the info Rae imparted during the day was insider info about the industry – portfolios, agents and tips on breaking in to the fashion world. All amazingly useful stuff for me as a makeup artist. The makeup tips she gave us tended to be more around applying makeup for photo shoots – so again, not so relevant for the day to day makeupping that you guys do. But one thing Rae said which I found very interesting (and thought you would also) was something she’d picked up when she was on a panel for the Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic...
