To celebrate the hard work of the talented MAC makeup artists working behind the scenes at NZFW I have decided to illustrate their makeup looks along with my posts. The best part is that they have kindly provided me a list of all the products used, so if you are feeling inspired you know exactly what you need to recreate the look at home!

There were a couple of designers at NZFW this year that showcased what I believe to be their best collections yet - one of those brands was Salasai delivering an edited showcase of refined looks, not an outfit out of place. Salasai collections regularly pay homage to heritage, home and culture and their AW15 collection was no exception combining a painterly Pacific inspired print with high buttoned collars, underskirts as outerwear, and linens that when shown alongside a soundtrack of classical music had a distinctly old English appeal.The collection had the perfect balance of print vs plain, and managed to dip its toes in the recent art trend without taking it too far and rendering it dated. This energetic art inclusion was pulled through to the makeup look with roughly paintbrushed eye shadows and flashes of primary yellow. The Salasai show was definitely in my top 5 of shows this NZFW season.
