{MBFFS Beauty} Melina Martin

This post features the incredibly mesmerising and talented model Melina Martin. I met her on this shoot and was firstly completely captivated by those eyes and further impressed by her presence when she got in front of the camera. The shoot was for hair and make up trials for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Sydney (MBFFS) and Nigel Stanislaus from Maybelline New York Australia was the amazing make-up artist behind the 3 looks featured in this post. I know I certainly picked up some tips and tricks during the trials to try with my own make-up, I hope this post inspires you too.

{MBFFS} Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Sydney 2014

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Sydney was the other week and I was there with full All Areas Access pass to capture the great fashion moments on the runway and those little moments backstage you don't get to see. 11 massive shows over 4 big nights, our Australian designers showed off their talent! 
It was an amazing production thanks to the very hard working ladies at IMG Fashion. Guests were treated to an incredible show set against the backdrop of the beautiful heritage-listed Sydney Town Hall Drinks followed at the Hub, where the champagne flowed alongside a Baileys chocolate fountain, and free professional photo shoots were offered along with Maybeline touch-ups and much more!
