As some of you may know if you follow my makeup page (Click here) I recently had the amazing opportunity to work for Gok Wan's Fashion Brunch in Newcastlewest last month. I was assisting the fabulous Danielle Mahon Makeup Studios with a great team of 7 other Makeup Artist.
I couldn't believe it when I received word from Danielle and immediately said YES!
Myself and my Ma went down to Limerick the Friday so it wouldn't be too much of an early start. I was only 4 weeks post surgery at this stage and probably shouldn't have been doing anything! Lol!
The day started at 6am when my alarm went off. I headed to Fashion Brunch and met the rest of the team. Allure College were also there and the owner (Joan) is from my town so it was nice to have a familiar friendly face there.
We had the opportunity to work with some amazing Irish brands such as SoSu by Suzanne Jackson(SoSueMe), Cocoa Brown tan and Fairy Wands by Joanne Larby. We also worked with Shiseido for the makeup and as you know I love the foundation. I did a recent review and you can view it here.
The fashion was all local boutiques and the Brunch showcased some stunning pieces. If you need a dress for an event there are some amazing places in Newcastlewest! ;)
The look for the Brunch was simple sexy glam and all of the models were absolutely stunning! And as for Gok, well... what an amazing man! I was quite intimidated when I first saw him but he is honestly so nice. He is an absolute character and what you see on TV is what he is like in the flesh. I was so grateful to work for him.
It was an absolutely incredible opportunity and I can't thank Danielle enough for even considering me to assist her. All the girls I worked with were so nice and we all worked so well together.
Lastly thank you to you, reading this now. I would not have half as many opportunities if it wasn't for your continued support and I do really appreciate it, more than I can ever express.
Until next time,
