Hold the Glamour

I am a full-figure model and working mother. I am a wife, a sister, a daughter, a friend. I am a Leo. I am a first-generation Aussie and mother to two amazing little native New Yorkers. I believe that fashion is important—but so is real life. I believe that all women are beautiful and strong. I believe in working hard and loving harder. I believe in eating delicious food and drink with close friends, in breathing deep the air of new places, in laughing until you cry. I believe that when our bodies and minds are healthy and balanced, anything is possible.

Sue Devitt Eye Intensifier Pencil

I have a wonderful product I’d love to share with you if I haven’t already — Sue Devitt’s Eye Intensifier Pencil. It comes in an array of colours and over the years I have gone mad for most of them.

A lovely make-up artist in Chicago first put me onto the eye pencil years ago and I haven’t looked back since. It gives a good eyelid line whilst being forgiving of time, experience and effort. How easy right?

Some of my personal favourite hues include Gold Reef, Kenya, Surat, Tanzania, Zaire and Pointe-Noire. Who am I kidding? I wear one of these fabulous shades most days I’m not working, that is, when I’m being me. Otherwise, I go without a scrap of make-up entirely and let my skin breathe and be free of it all.

For an instant pick-me-up, I wear one of Sue’s Eye Intensifier Pencils over the bottom of my eyelid (close to my eyelashes), my favourite mascara at the time and some colour/gloss on my lips. This is my personal signature look.

Do you ever change it up?

Armani Luminous Silk Foundation

My family and I recently arrived in Sydney, Australia. So far it has been a relaxing time spent with family and friends. It’s been a while since Steve and the kids were here so everyone wants to see them and see how our children have grown.

I start shooting for Sara by Ezibuy in a matter of days so prior to leaving New York, I made sure I purchased a new bottle of my favourite foundation I’ve been using for over six years. Armani Luminous Silk Foundation gives me the coverage I need whilst feeling light and looking smooth and natural on my face.

I have had many different brands and products applied to my face over the course of my career and no foundation in my opinion, comes close to Armani. I buy my own and have the make-up artist apply it for each and every job. Most of them are happy to use my personal foundation, if they don’t already use Armani themselves.

Make sure when you buy any foundation for the first time, you have a consultant assist you. Getting the right shade is very important for a colour match that you want to look natural. A good guide is to apply your foundation on the inside of your arm or wrist. The colour or shade you see the least, is generally the right one for you.
