Going bold.

Words by

Fashion Journal

It’s not just our wardrobes that brighten up come summer. We’re all for experimenting with makeup and testing out bold new looks. And we decided to do just that in our September issue.

Lucky for you, makeup artist Rob Povey and hair stylists Tanya Grant and Ryan Brown from Joey Scandizzo Salon compiled their notes, so you can get the look too.


Hana’s skin was prepped with a liberal application of MAC Prep + Prime Fix and MAC Strobe Cream in Goldlite. It was then evened out using MAC Studio Face and Body Foundation, and MAC Prep + Prime Highlighter to bounce light and diffuse imperfections. 


Cheeks were sculpted using MAC Cream Colour Base in Midtone Sepia, and MAC Prep + Prime Essential Oils Stick pressed into the high planes to create a dewy sheen. 


Brows were pre-lightened with bleach, and brushed up with MAC Clear Brow Set for a full, fluffy texture. 


MAC Cream Colour Base in Yellow Scream and Rich Coral was buffed over the entire lid and into the brow bone for a creamy wash of colour. MAC Studio Eye Gloss in Pearl Varnish was tapped on top to create a glossy look. Lashes were curled, but no mascara was used. 


Lips were given a soft, understated pink tint to offset the bold eyes using MAC Glaze Lipstick in Hue and MAC Clear Lipglass


To add a soft texture, Hana’s hair was prepped with ELEVEN Australia’s Miracle Hair Treatment and Sea Salt Texture Spray

ELEVEN Australia Give Me Hold Flexible Hairspray was used to create a brushed-back look, while still keeping the hair’s natural texture and movement. 

We experimented with different styles and parting throughout this shoot, so it was really important to use lightweight styling products like ELEVEN Australia’s Sea Salt Texture Spray and Give Me Hold Flexible Hairspray. 

To highlight Hana’s blonde hair, shine was added using ELEVEN Australia’s Smooth and Shine Anti-Frizz Serum.
