Bourjois NZ Launch Event

So one Monday in July we found ourselves five stories high in an inner city Auckland building overlooking the sparkling sea, whilst late afternoon sun poured through the windows. Glasses of champagne were promptly passed our way, which we sipped whilst getting some models made up with Bourjois Catwalk.

Our Makeup Station Team made up three models, each wearing a specific look created with Bourjois products. The natural look was tres chic. The bold lip, with its rich redness, so sophisticated. And the smokey eye was superb.

Brow Magic – Product Review

My friend Sandy sent me out some Poni Cosmetics brow products to try and I am completely won over!!!

Let me introduce you to “BROW MAGIC”  this brown waxed pencil is is designed to be used on any brow colour! I cant tell you how excited I am to have this item in my kit. This one item could potentially replace so many other brow products I used to use!

Last weekend I used this brow pencil on seven different brows/colours/shapes/textures and it gave me fantastic results on all clients.

This  waxed pencil is waterproof / sweat proof waxed which stands the test of time.

BROW MAGIC contains biotin, which helps to re-grow dormant hair follicles Awesome for those of you like me who are trying to grow my brows back!
