Create the Perfect Pout!

shape up your lips
Applying lipliner is not only a great way to define and accentuate the shape of your lips, but also to keep your lipstick from feathering.

1. Begin applyling lipliner at the center of your natural upper lip line to define the bow then work toward the outer corners to complete the line.
2. Start at one corner of your bottom lip then follow your natural lip line all the way to the other corner.

Tip: Choose a lipliner that matches your lipstick or a flesh tone shade for a soft, natural look.

Tip: To get plumper, pinker looking lips, do not touch up by drawing a hard lip line; smudge it so lips look fuller! For a more dramatic fullness, choose a lipstick shade with a hint of frost.

Tip: To avoid lipstick on your teeth, put your index finger in your mouth and then draw it out slowly with your mouth closed. What you see on your finger is what would have ended up on your teeth!

Wedding Hair styles for 2012

Most of the latest hair trends for 2012 have been seen worn by brides in New York Fashion week.  Braids are one of the most popular hair trends that we are seeing this season in the bridal and fashion world.

Other popular hair trends include french twists,  half up half down upstyles,  bridal hair accessories and ponytails. 

One very trendy look for 2012 is having the hair done up, but with some pieces of hair falling down. For example, the hair could be gathered back into a bun while from the sides pieces of curled hair are escaping, giving the bride a playful and cute look while still looking like she has put some considerable effort into the look.

 It is a good idea to practice the hair style with your stylist at least once before the wedding, to get it just right.  Contact us now to arrange your trial with one of our very experience hair stylists

Hair and Makeup Brisbane

Yesterday,  we participated in a fabulous shoot in Brisbane at the Powerhouse in Brisbane.  We were lucky enough to be working with Professional Brisbane Photographer James Robertson from  ,  and up and coming Brisbane Model Leah Simcoe.  

Alot of our Brisbane Brides have be requesting the classic bun as their choice of style for their wedding day.  As Leah’s hair was only shoulder length,  our clever hairstylist Lucie opted to use clip in hair extensions to create the fullness and volume to the bun,  which otherwise wouldn’t have been achievable with Leah’s natural hair. 

Below is a selection of images from the shoot,  click here to view Leah in our before and after gallery

Our Spraytanning is Superior – Try it now just $20


The quality of En vogue products is exceptional. Colour equilibrium technology, high concentrates of stable DHA formulas combined with increased penetration of active ingredients, including Vitamin E and Aloe Vera, ensure En vogue is at the forefront of scientifically designed spraytanning products.

En vogue spraytanning solution is –

  • completely fragrance free
  • quick drying
  • leaves no sticky residue
  • long lasting (up to ten days)
  • absolutely no orange undertones 
  • tan will wear off evenly.

En vogue spraytanning solution offers three levels of instant natural colours to suit all skin types. As there are only three colour levels, selecting the right colour for a particular skin type is simple

  • Level 1 is for fair skin,
  • Level 2 is for olive skin 
  • Level 3 with 12.5% DHA is or clients wanting even darker results.

Green based solution
There are two reasons why some spraytanning companies suggest their formulas are green based.Firstly it is because the formulas contain very poor quality FD & C colour agents. Envogue uses the FD & C colours which are 10 times higher in quality and price.

Secondly, instant bronzers discolour and oxydize within days after the formulas are manufactured therefore most companies state their solution as being green based.

We are confident that Envogue spraytanning solution will become your preferred tanning brand.
Envogue spraytanning solution will offer clients a natural instant colour with no orange undertones and a tan that will wear off evenly. The solution is completely fragrant free, no fragrance is necessary as all ingredients are natural. It is also very quick drying and the client’s skin is completely dry within 5 minutes of application. The end result is a tan that will last for 8-10 days.

We are extremely confident that you will be impressed with the results of Envogue spraytanning solution.

Envogue uses only the most premium German grade DHA in all of its spraytanning formulas. Unlike the majority of spraytanning suppliers who use Phenoxiethanol as a preservative, which is highly irritating and unpleasant in smell, Envogue’s ingredients are odourless and fragrant free and do not contain the commonly used and potentially irritating preservative, Phenoxiethanol.

“Michelle does a great job with spray tans. I always had the fear of going orange after a spray tan but with Michelle’s tans there is no orange tinge whatsoever. The tans look great every time and leave you feeling a million bucks.”  Sophie
