Navy Chic // Megan Gale & LMFF Inspired Makeup Look

As many of you might know, the annual L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival has rolled around once more and the city is buzzing! Megan Gale and Rae Morris are the stars that are holding up the beauty side of the runway, and with their 2013 Exclusive Lookbook in front of me, I chose to recreate Look #3.

Navy Chic : Match navy eyes with navy nails and a strong pink lip

 L’Oreal kindly sent through a parcel with some of the key products of the season, and I’ve also drawn things from my collection (including past L'Oreal send outs) to complete the look.

The strong blue liner look was something I had actually feebly attempted days before the L’Oreal bundle arrived at Chez Bovary, but the efforts weren’t worthy of a blog post and were more for fun than anything else. Sadly I’ve had a massive skin catastrophe occur since, and so the flawless skin like Ms. Gale’s isn’t a feature in my recreation ;) Just goes to show that I am a realistic and honest beauty blogger, painful flaws and all!
again, sorry for the state of my skin but I really wanted to share my LMFF look with you!
Products Used:
(As recommended by Rae Morris’ guide, all L’Oreal)
 Lumi Magique Pure Light Primer*
Lumi Magique Foundation in N1*
Glam Bronze La Terra in 04 Intenso* (which was way too dark for me!)
Infallible Eyeshadow 002 Hourglass Beige
Elvive Extraordinary Oil* (for my hair)
Colour Riche Le Smokey Eyeliner in Stormy Sea* (the STAR!)
Colour Riche Le Vernis nail polish in 608 Luxembourg Garden* (such an amazing shade)
Colour Riche lipstick in 378 Velvet Rose* (perhaps a new favourite...)
Other Products Used:
Rimmel Vinyl Gloss in Clear
Illamasqua Concealer
Covergirl Clump Crusher mascara

Have you tried any of the looks from LMFF yet?  You should hop over to Beautyholics Anonymous to see the LMFF inside scoop, Tine is the official LMFF beauty blogger and I’ve been drooling over her posts this week. In other news I am heading to my very first fashion event* this coming Saturday, the L'Oreal and Marie Claire beauty workshop. Tickets are $39 (with a goodie bag!) and you can find out more details here. Hope to see you there!

*Marked items were provided for consideration, but as I stated above I had planned on doing this makeup look earlier anyway =) I am attending the LMFF beauty workshop as a guest of L’Oreal.


  1. Love it! You look gorgeous in navy! I think navy is such a classy shade on the eyes.

  2. This looks gorgeous on you Emma. I am actually wearing a navy eyeliner today from Estee Lauder!

    The looks that have been created for the LÓreal fashion week are just gorgeous and as it is one of my all time favourite brands I am loving seeing them.

    That lip colour really suits you and I can see why it may end up a favourite.

    Have an absolutely brilliant time on Saturday - I will be following you to see what you get up to :-)

  3. You look stunning! This is the first of the LMFF looks I've seen.

  4. Gorgeous look emma :) i love navy colours on my eyes too x

  5. I'm loving the navy liner! It's such a clean, classy pop of colour xo

  6. You look great, Emma! Channel that inner model!


  7. Oh navy how I love thee! And I do love navy. I think you did a great job Emma. Navy gives you that nice pop of colour without making it too heavy on the eyes. Can you imagine that with a fuchsia lipstick? WOW!
