So another Salon Melbourne rolled around and I was totally prepared to fill my head full of new beauty knowledge, gain some much needed blogging inspiration and bring home some hard-to-find goodies with a decent sized haul...two outta three ain't bad?
I noted down some of the presentations I was interested in for my first Salon instalment, and soon after arriving I settled down on the bench with my dear friend Norlin (of Baubles Bubbles Bags fame) to let Simone Lee pour some knowledge out for us in Magnifque: Music Artists Vs. Movie Stars. I don't know exactly what I was expecting but I got more than I'd hoped for - Simone turned 3 models into music or movie stars before our eyes and it was a great way for the general public (or bloggers) to connect with the techniques she was speaking about. I think my favourite had to be when she turned her model into Cher's character from Burlesque - I love that movie!
|Youngblood stand, where Norlin bought a thing or two ;)|
|I was so impressed with the variety at the FABY stand - see my FABY mani here!|
|shade names on point...|
|first time I visited a Crown Brush stand without buying something...can someone check my temp?|
|amazing talent at the Beauty and Hair Academy stall!|
|pretty awesome catwalk, though how the models danced with that hair and those heels I'll never know...|
I have had my eye on Sugarpill's 'Midori' since I began beauty blogging but have actually never seen the brand in person, and as soon as I swatched this I got those beauty-loving butterflies I've been waiting for since my last big haul. Norlin was actually laughing at how excited I was while buying a single measly eyeshadow, but let me tell you the high was worth it.
How crazy do you go with hauling at events like this?
Does IMATS send you broke every year?
Am I crazy to be this excited over a single shadow?!
