Mecca Cosmetica - 2012 BEAUTY ELECTION Top 100 Beauty Stars

Today a lovely friend of mine and I were whisked away into a world of lipsticks and powder puffs at the Mecca Cosmetica Beauty Election 2012 Event!




In the left corner is THE James Boehmer!!
Located at Chadstone - a huge shopping centre known as the Fashion Capital of Victoria - Mecca Cosmetica hosted an event in-store where there were so many makeup artists you could barely walk!

Even James Boehmer, the Director of Global Artistry at NARS was there, and his work has appeared in countless fashion magazines and was a lead makeup artist at New York Fashion Week!! Oh. My. God.



My friend and I were treated to a free consultation with a professional makeup artist, and the girl who did mine was super nice and took me through step-by-step to achieve this personalised look:

As I wear glasses sometimes, I was looking for a look that would suit my frames while still being a bit quirky. I always wear eyeliner, but was looking for something different from my usual black liquid liner. 

Sally, my makeup artist, suggested a blue liner with champagne to brown coloured eyeshadows, something I would not have thought of without her! But I was so happy with how it looked, I couldn't leave without buying that Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner in Rue Saint-Honoré - I fell in love instantly!




I had actually had a consultation at Mecca once before, and two of the products they suggested I try on the first visit (the blush and highlighter) were again recommended to me today! It really shows how talented the artists at Mecca are - they really do know what suits you best!

My friend bought the silver eyeshadow that was chosen for her, here's some photos of her wearing it:


And as a present for attending, we both received a little goodie bag, containing mini versions of the NARS Blush in Orgasm (the shade that was used during my consultation - what luck!) and NARS Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Aigle Noir.

Our entire makeup haul for the day!
Look for a Mecca Cosmetica store near you.
