Miranda Kerr has been in Sydney this week to help launch the new Qantas air hostess uniform, as well as attend the Qantas gala dinner party held at Sydney's domestic airport last night. We noticed her neat, red lip and of course, just had to have it. Her makeup artist for the gala dinner, Noni Smith, told us the exact products she used on Miranda, so click through to zoom in on our national treasure and then shop her lip! Fun.
We’ve been tuning in to The Voice religiously — not only to see which contestants make it through, but also to check out Delta Goodrem’s hair and makeup. What can we say — it’s research! The sole female coach certainly hasn’t disappointed us, switching up her style and experimenting with new beauty looks for each live show. We caught up with her makeup artist, Noni Smith, to get the lowdown on her latest look. “Last night was tricky as we had two outfits to make it work with,” Smith said. In order to make the look versatile enough to wear with both outfits, Smith opted for a gorgeous “smouldery, shapely eye.” See how she created the look.
Red lips and sleek strands made an appearance again at last night's final show, Lover. Lead hairstylist Sophie Roberts described the look as "handsome beauty" and cited the '70s as a reference. The deep-parted, side pony was paired with a "pre-Raphaelite" makeup look that saw lashes left bare, lips filled in with a bright blend of two cult MAC lipsticks and brows defined and extended to give the look a slight masculine edge. Skin was fair and luminous.

Noni Smith was directing the makeup at Camilla & Marc this morning and said the overall look was "exotic and ethnic" inspired. The face was kept bare, leaving the main focus on the peach eye, which was created using three different MAC Pigments: a neon orange, which has a matte finish, with bright coral and metallic orange applied over the top. It was finished off with a heavy coating of mascara on the top lash line and just a hint of golden bronze shimmer on the cheeks. To keep all eyes on the eyes, the lip was nude. It was a beautiful face, bold, yet still fitting with Camilla & Marc's look. This is what it looks like on Daniel Johns' other half, Louise Van de Vorst, pretty, dontcha think?
The look over at Marnie Skillings was modern English Rose. Skin was luminous, cheeks were ever-so-lightly contoured and lips were graced with a pop of bold lilac or orange. There's your modern then. The lip colours were custom-blended by MAC Makeup Director, Noni Smith, using shades of aubergine, orange, fuchsia and white. Despite being a huge orange fan (see my earlier Carla Zampatti post), there's something compelling about the mauve-lilac shade. MAC Lipstick in Up The Amp ($35) is a close match if you're really not a fan of DIY mixing. Now onto the hair, which was inspired by the Teddy Girls of the '50s and artfully created by ghd Hair Director, Sophie Roberts. Sophie calls the quiffed Edwardian-esque style both "romantic [and] a touch tomboy." It's all about creating lots of texture with ghd Sea Spray ($35), spliting hair into two sections, braiding from the ear downwards and then knotting and rolling the plaits in on themselves until you reach the nape of the neck. Finish by creating a quiff at the front and pull a few strands loose. Simple! What do you think of the look? Like it? I LOVE it!
