The Perth Hair and Makeup Artist Awards 2017 were on over the weekend, showcasing talented hair and makeup stylists and products, and endorsing passion and innovation aplenty.
Organiser Shelley Meyer provided a big day out with runway shows, live body art and hair and beauty providers offering free makeovers.
The heritage venue of Perth Concert Hall made for a beautiful backdrop with the models on runway stealing the day with stunning hair styles, gorgeous makeup and amazing outfits by talented stylists, most of whom had only been in the business a few years, even new students stealing the limelight in the awards runway.
The hard work of Perth makeup artists was showcased through the awards catwalk which acknowledged their amazing skills in various categories including Trends in Hair & Makeup, Festival Hair & Makeup, Face Art, Creative Makeup and Avant Garde, all concluding with the Body Art Glamazon Runway show.
Sponsor Caroline Stanbury of Smitten Cosmetics was proud to endorse the event and her team were busy creating their own magic in the indulgent VIP makeover lounge which was much appreciated by guests. To enhance patrons’ enjoyment, the expo included a pop-up bar and café, free makeup touchups, demonstrations and a nifty ‘Insta Pod’ to show off new looks.
The niche event looks like getting bigger each year. For more information visit www.perthhmuaawards.com.au. Annette McCubbin
