RISE Fashion Show

Yesterday was the RISE Fashion Show at the Roadhouse Community Centre!

It was a great evening and I met some lovely people, including a model named Jazmine and the Key Make-up Artist Jacqueline Parker who did a great job designing the two looks we were to re-create on our models and organising all the Hair Stylists and Make-up Artists on the evening. (Jacqueline also put together little goody bags for everyone as a thank you for helping out, which was a lovely touch :-) ) I also bumped into a Make-up Artist/Hair Stylist that I met at the Nygard show, Elena Ismail. Always nice to see a familiar face!

The looks were quite simple to recreate as we were provided with photos and a small step-by-step guide on creating them. The first one was a smokey eye with pale lip, the second a natural eye with a gorgeous dark berry lip. We were told to just bring along our brushes and brush cleaner as the make-up we were to use was being provided for us by a company called Sappho Cosmetics. I’d never heard of them until this event, but I did really like their eyeshadows and bronzer!

I don’t have any photos as yet, but there was a professional photographer and videographer there photographing and filming the whole show and there are a few photos up on RISES’s Facebook page, but not of all the models or the whole show. Hopefully they’ll have the video up soon and I can link through to that for you!

All in all a fun night for a good cause promoting thrift and recyling :-)
