GLAM UP WITH STACY-ROBIN

Tracy rocked my makeup look at a friends wedding this past weekend.

I love what I do and seeing that my clients are extremely happy with my work is just the absolute best feeling! One of my beautiful and loyal clients is a gorgeous boss lady by the name of Tracy-lee Rosslind. She needed her makeup done for a wedding and wanted to go full on glam for the day. I created this specific look on Tracy because she had the perfect canvas for it! I have very small eyelids so when I get the opportunity to work with a lot of eye space I take full advantage of that!

If you do have smaller lids like myself, have no fear, I have worked on many different eye shapes and I will always work on a look which is best suited to you and to bring out your best features.

Selfie with my other half, Liezel van der Westhuizen

I attended the event with my always beautiful bosslady Liezel van der Westhuizen whom I also dolled up for the evening. I styled her in a black bandage bralette and matching bandage skirt. Over this I styled her in a stunning olive green mesh top and an edgy black leather shoulder shawl by Erre, all of which can be found at The Bromwell based in Woodstock. For her makeup, I did my signature brow and went full on glamour on her eyes with a smokey glitter look and dramatic lashes. How gorgeous does she look??!!

#ShimmyHighGnT

High Tea? No no no, I’m more interested in Shimmy’s ‘High GnT’!

Today I styled Liezel in this Gorgeous blue and white pin stripe shirt dress with an off the shoulder detail and buttoned up features on sleeve and side seam. I got this quirky yet extremely chic creation from The Bromwell, which I do suggest you check out if you’re looking for timeless pieces to add to your wardrobe that are both classic and bold. I finished off this look with a pair of white sneakers and a lovely straw hat that I pulled from my closet.

For Liezel’s makeup, I went with chizzled cheekbones, a natural eye with long lush lashes, a bold brow and a dark statement lip. Liezel looked absolutely ravashing (as usual).

Remember to check out ‘Contact’ in the menu bar for more info on how you can book me to do your makeup.

The event itself was spectactular! I loved the overall mood that was created through the decor and the live performances and not to mention the location! Shimmy is such a beautiful venue located by the sea, which alone is already all you could ask for.

The layout of all the treats presented at the focal point of the room was absolutely devine! My eyes were at disbelief. If I had not been wearing my favourite false lashes by Eyelure, I would have probably quite literally had to rub my eyes to make sure I was seeing correctly. Unfortunately I had given up chocolate for Lent so I had to suck it up, deal with it in the best possible way I knew how…. I ate everything else!

What’s a High GnT without some refreshing non-alcoholic gin & tonic and I quote, is crafted with aromatic botanical extracts. It’s an elegant, sugar-free alternative to alcohol! So yummy! I recommend you go check them out for yourself and let me know what you think in the comment box below.

BOKEH FASHION FILM FESTIVAL ’17 MEDIA LAUNCH

Thanks to my incredible boss Liezel van der Westhuizen, I am able to attend many fabulous events and on Tuesday we attended the Bokeh Fashion Film Festival Media Launch! Oh how I love my job!

I rarely wear heels as I lack the co-ordination skills needed for such an intricate device (shall we call it that?), so it was quite fun to get my heels out for this event and test the waters!

The Film

We got a sneak peak at what we can be expecting at this year’s Bokeh Fashion Film Festival and my oh my, our local talent here in South Africa is absolutely exceptional. I was blown away by each composition and by the standard of work. I love seeing local creatives raising the bar high and inspiring others in the industry to push boundaries and think ahead of what everyone else is doing.

Live art, fashion, film, beautiful people, fantastic goodie bags and ice-lollies? Now that’s my kind of event! Overall, the launch was amazing! I am so excited about this year’s talent and am looking forward to the main event. Will I see you there?!
