Professional Makeup Artist Looks From The VAMFF Runway

There’s no better place to look for upcoming makeup trends than the runways they make their debut on. And this year’s Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival had some absolute hits. Our lead professional makeup artist Jo Spring was the only makeup artist in Queensland selected to be part of the makeup team in 2019, making everyone here at TWIDALE so proud!

All of the below makeup looks were directed by the exceptionally talented Sarah Laidlaw and executed by our very own Jo Spring.

Gorman Runway Makeup

The Gorman fashion show was a big start to a full week of runway events, featuring 47 models with 47 custom looks. Jo worked on this stunning musk-coloured eye complemented by a metallic lip and dewy, bronzed finish. Electric, vibrant and so much fun.

David Jones Show Makeup

Day 2 for David Jones brought us perfected skin and a glossy lip with a clumpy lash. Laidback but polished.

Vogue Australia Runway Makeup

For the Vogue Australia runway on day 3, we saw perfected skin again but this time with muted peach tones on the eyelid and just below the cheekbone. We love the understated elegance of this look.

The National Graduate Showcase Makeup

The National Graduate Showcase on day 5 gave us this stunning cracked metallic eye. If there’s just one look we can’t wait to recreate back in Brisbane, it would be this one.

Fashion Journal Magazine Runway Makeup #2

One of the final runways of the week, again for Fashion Journal Magazine, presented a bold, negative-spaced rounded-wing eyeliner look, paired with a subtle metallic swish. We can’t get enough of the beautiful details in this look.
