SNAPCHAT BTS: SHOOT DAY MAKEUP

MAKEUP_02

If you don’t follow us on snapchat already, you’re missing out (@PrincessPollyAU) Yesterday at our shoot, our makeup artist @alanamevissen showed us how you can use some of the super affordable makeup we sell at Princess Polly to get our model’s makeup look!

» HOW TO GET THE LOOK «

MAKEUP_03

» L A S H E S «

  1. Apply a drop of Ardell Lashtite Clear Adhesive ($7) on your hand and use tweezers to dip the base of each lash in the adhesive
  2. Apply a few Ardell Medium Double Individual Lashes ($11) on the outside corner of your eye
  3. Apply Ardell Short Double Individual Lashes ($11) along the rest of your lashline 

» T I P S  &  T R I C K S «

  • Use tweezers to apply lashes
  • Get as close to the lashline as possible
  • Put on mascara after the lashes have been applied. This will join your natural lashes to the false lashes and make them look more natural. We suggest: L.A. Girl Super Mega Mascara ($14)
    If you have a little bit of adhesive that’s not drying, and you can see it, just color it in with a little bit of eyeliner.

 

MAKEUP_04

» H I G H L I G H T «

  1. After contouring with bronzer, use L.A. Girl Hi-Lite Velvet Contour Stick ($14) on cheekbones, nose (down the bridge & on the tip and sides of the nose), and on the cupid’s bow. 
  2. Blend in with your fingers
  3. After applying highlighter, lightly blend a little bronzer over the top so that it doesn’t look harsh and streaky. We suggest: Barry M. After Glow Bronzer ($20)

.
Highlights include: 
  • The constant stream of BABES who came down to shop and scored massive deals
  • Adorable puppies and kittens brought by the AWLQ
  • Tunes were flowin’ (shoutout to our DJ @blairvt)
  • Perfect sunny Burleigh weather
  • A visit from our girl Cartia Mallan

and last but not least….

You helped us raise over $8,000 for the Animal Welfare League Qld (AWLQ)

Untitled-6

We are so proud to continue our support for the AWLQ — a local, not for profit organisation that cares and rehomes up to 15,000 stray and abandoned animals each year. If you don’t know much about them, here are a few of the many reasons why they are our charity of choice:
  •  They are self-funded, as they receive no money from the government
  •  They re-home ALL of their animals

Untitled-7

Many of the clothes that were not sold have been donated to AWLQ op shops, which provide their primary source of funding for their cause:)
Again, massive thanks to everyone who came down– see you all next time!!

Read on to get the know these smokin’ ladies and steal their style.

Age

Lisa: 27

2photos_01IMG_9346

Hometown

Emily: I grew up between Perth and Townsville (cowboooooys)

Lisa: Gold Coast

Coffee or Tee?

Emily: Is that even a question? There’s a reason the ancient coffee bean is so revered…

Lisa: Coffee

2016-02-11-12.28.22-3

Girl Crush?

Emily: Lena Dunham. She is smart, hilarious, inspiring and most importantly challenging all of the stereotypes ever set for us.

Lisa: Bambi

Favourite Live Band? 

Emily: The Murlocs

Lisa: Tame Impala

2photos_04IMG_8824

My local hangout is…

Emily: My own house. We live in Byron so all of our friends tend to congregate at our very central humble abode . Plus i make a mean glass of cab sav…

Lisa: Roadhouse, Byron Bay

Are you an early riser or sleeping in kinda girl? 

Emily: Well that really depends on how many margaritas I’ve had..

Lisa:  I love waking up early to watch the sunrise, but deep down i’m a sleepin’ in kinda girl😉

IMG_8677

Favourite place you have travelled to? 

Emily: Udaipur, Rajasthan. Known as the Venice of India. If there’s one thing you must see in your life, its watching the sun rise over lake Pichola drinking steaming hot street chai.

Lisa: New York and Paris

My morning routine involves…

Emily: Procrastinating for 45 minutes than finding a way to blame my boyfriend for my perpetual lateness.

Lisa: Snuggling with my kitty Luna, dressing up & coconut cappuccinos

IMG_00692photos_02

What song have you had on repeat lately? 

Emily: Flume – Never be like you. I can thank your delightful social media manager Lucy for that one.

Lisa: Never be like you – Flume

Favourite weekend adventure location? 

Emily: The great sandy national park just north of Noosa, you can camp on the beach and feel like you are the only people on the earth. Or the never never river, inland from Coffs Harbour.

Lisa: I love to explore all of the waterfalls in the hinterland

2016-02-11-12.33.25-2

Ideal date night? 

Emily: Me, candles, wine (copious amounts), dim lighting… and Justin Bieber. Preferably with a guitar, but i mean beggars cant be choosers… (Nobody show my boyfriend Will this)

Lisa: Sunset swim, followed by a camp fire on the beach with cushions & wine

Latest Netflix obsession? 

Emily: I’ve been waiting to be asked this question. For the past few weeks I have literally cornered every unsuspecting innocent I can get my grimy little paws on to talk about this show. Outlander. Just saying the name gives me little shivers of pleasure (reminiscent of the Mufasa scene in lion king). Scottish highlands, time-walking, romance, drama, violence, men in kilts. Need i say more?

Lisa: Vampire Diaries forever

IMG_77242photos_08

Favourite tunes to chill to? 

Emily: I have a very eclectic taste in music. I love everything from Alanis Morissette to Rage Against The Machineto Taylor Swift. It just depends which one of my many personalities you get on the day.

Lisa: Foals and Boy & Bear

Leather or Lace? 

Emily: Leathery lace? Why separate the two when they look so good together.

Lisa: Both… together.

2photos_06

What do you do to relax? 

Emily: I usually paint, read, sew, cook or just generally create (usually just mess, to be honest). Or take a bath. I love baths. Once my boyfriend found me asleep in the bath with my head bobbing serenely like a little floating cork in a sea of lavender scented water. I mean that could have gone one of two ways, really, but lets all just be glad it ended well and call it a day shall we.

Lisa: Read a book in the hammock on our front porch or a bubble bath with candles

Something most people don’t know about you? 

Emily: I have three older brothers, I am the only girl and the youngest in my family. Also sometimes when I eat things I swear I can taste the smell of them… ( e.g goats cheese tastes like the smell of goats)

Lisa: I am a belieber!

2016-02-11-11.16.22-32016-02-08-11.11.50-1

Fave shops to find hidden treasures for your home?

Emily: Op shops, garage sales and antique stores. Nearly everything in our house has a story. Its own little tale of survival. Distinct with it’s own sassy personality.

Lisa: Byron Weekend Markets & Newrybar Merchants
