“Rare Bloom” : Aveda’s Latest Make Up Collection

IMG_7503

We are so excited about the launch of Aveda’s “Rare Bloom” make up collection! Aveda have released this limited edition collection of fashion colours to compliment this season’s best trends.

Using plant power and natural minerals (not synthetic minerals made in a laboratory), Aveda has perfected the fusion between natural products and bright, on-trend colours. The strong lip trend isn’t going to go away in a hurry, and Aveda are on top of  that, with a bright “Magenta Berry” Nourish-Mint Smoothing Lip Colour (RRP $29.95), and an awesome lip liner to nail that crisp outline. For those a little shy, we have a much tamer “Sheer Peony” Mineral Lip Colour, which still delivers a fantastic colour. These are complimented by two bright shades of Rehydrating Lip Glaze (RRP $34.95), “Pink Hibiscus”, and “Fire Poppy”.

The collection also comprises of four brand new shades of Petal Essence Eye Colour. The shades are “Coriander”, “Plumeria”, “Indigo Sky”, and everyone’s favourite “Rose Gold”. These retail for $24.95 each. And to top it all off, a gorgeous Petal Essence Eye Definer, (RRP $29.95) in the most gorgeous shade of Turquoise that we have ever seen.

These are strictly Limited Edition, and are sure to go, so ask your stylist for your Complimentary Finishing Touch to try them out and have a play with these brave colours. We love what Aveda’s Global Artistic of Makeup, Janell Geason has done with her model below!

Photo Shoot = SUCCESS!

So. We had our photo shoot on Monday. This shoot was for two purposes, the main one being to create our images to enter in the national Aveda Colour Harmony Awards. The second was to create a collection that our team can proudly display in the salon, and know that it was all our own doing. I am very proud of my team’s efforts both in the lead up to the shoot and of course their work.

Tom McEvoy outdid himself shooting our work, and we cannot wait to see him add his arty touch to turn our images from photographs to art. This Melbourne-based photographer is 50% photographer, 50% artist in our eyes. We have given him free reign, and I must say we had a great time collaborating with someone as fun and creative as Tom. Melanie from Day Of The Doe helped with styling the shoot and providing some amazing props for us to use. Check out her skull art on instagram @dayofthedoe .

A big thank you to Tom, Mel, our spunky models, and of course my talented stable of stylists. Stay tuned for our art-ed up professional images, but for now here is a sneak preview of terrible quality iPhone photos taken by various members of our team on the day. These ones are going to look even worse once we see Tom’s shots!
