Backstage Beauty: Empire Rose at TPFF2015

Big hair, minimal make up

Right now in Perth it’s the annual Telstra Perth Fashion Festival, which means glamorous outfits, flawless make-up and of course, chaos.

Wednesday night I experienced the madness of backstage beauty for the Empire Rose fashion show. I went inside the tent to get a sneak peek of the hair and make-up looks that would be gracing the runway two hours later.

The small tent was packed with models, MAC make-up artists and L’Oreal hair stylists. The majority of models had their hair fixed in tight rolls, while some had progressed to the next stage with ringlets tumbling down their backs. A rare few were getting the final touches or brushing, fluffing, pinning and spraying. Meanwhile the MAC team were creating soft rosy cheeked, rosy lipped looks. The result? Wild, rebellious hair on fresh-faced spring beauties…
