I love Paris Georgia. Fight me if you don’t! The designers show at NZFW [presented by Mercedes Benz] was a pure delight. The styling was impeccable too. The women walking the show could have easily been Paris Georgia’s chic and artful customers. The makeup and hair team backstage weren’t the typical ones either. Paris and Georgia collaborated with New Zealand luxury skincare brand Syrene to pamper the models backstage with a full skincare routine before makeup maestro Blair Gamblin of Bobbi Brown worked her magic on each model's face. Everything was dreamy, everyone glowed, everyone had fun. Hair stylist Lauren Gunn did beautiful slick but loose hair pulled away from the models face. Photographed by Luke Foley Martin.

BEAUTY NOTES FROM BOBBI BROWN
A long-time fan of the brand, Blair GAMBLIN took this direction from founders Paris and Georgia and interpreted it to mean sheer, dewy, hydrated skin with softly flushed cheeks, brushed-up bushy brows, tonal tints of colour wrapped around the eye lacquered in gloss, and neutral colour pressed gently onto lips.
