Beauty media and professionals were recently invited to celebrate the power of amazing hair, makeup and fashion at One Room, Bronte.
Masterchef's Mindy Woods and Julia Taylor
One Room held a fun-filled evening of indulgence to celebrate becoming the exclusive new stockists of Italian makeup brand Lord & Berry in Australia. Masterchef’s Mindy Woods and Julia Taylor, and celebrity mixologist, from award-winning Sydney bar Eau De Vie, Charlie Ainsburyat catered to guests' culinary needs.
Attendees had the opportunity to try out Lord & Berry with makeup artist counters set up on the salon’s terrace. A fun photo booth allowed Lord & Berry converts the chance to pose with their finished makeup look.
Lord & Berry makeup artist and stand
More a fashion house than a cosmetic brand, Lord & Berry products are for the contemporary lifestyle that values an object’s emotional and psychological effect as much as its form, style and quality. Each season Lord & Berry proposes looks inspired by seasonal textures and colours and by new trends in art and culture to be used on the runways, in the board room or for evening event.
Lord & Berry take pride in being eye and lip specialists, with the brands philosophy being to create products that wear like a perfect dress, little luxuries essential in getting eyes and lips in the mood to see and taste an infinite range of expression.
One Room was recently opened by Daniel McLennan who has been hairdressing for 28 years. He is a freelance hairstylist and makeup artist in Sydney and Maui, USA. Daniel’s work is diverse and his skills are constantly called upon for high-profile events and private clients throughout Australia and Hawaii. He was responsible for Mindy Woods and Julia Taylors perfect hair and makeup that evening.
Julia adds the finishes touches to the salted caramel brownies
When guests weren’t testing out Lord & Berry they could enjoy pink port cocktails and Masterchef food. The Italian themed, gourmet feast was created by Mindy Woods and included Taralli, buffalo mozzarella and carpaccio served in small sipping glasses, Civeche, veal tartar, capers, cornichon, parsley, olive crostini and roaming salami with breasola, proscuitio, grissini and olives.
Julia Taylor created the delicious dessert window seen from the salon front. Her raspberry macaroons, salted caramel brownies with salt and pepper chocolate straws and red velvet cupcakes lasted long enough to sweeten everyone’s spirits!
Brittany Cairns (The Voice), Lisa Ho, Lynette Carroll Bolton, Dr Katrina Warren, Audra Morrice (Masterchef), Sigourney Cantelo (Vogue) and Tali Jatali were just some of the other notable ladies in attendance.
