Unlocking the secrets behind the looks

Rae Morris, four-time Australian makeup artist of the year, and Sarah Laidlaw, four-time Australian Session Stylist of the Year, will share their secrets of success with the beauty and hair industry next week

During the full-day event at Sydney’s Eternity Playhouse, Morris and Laidlaw will provide “a true behind-the-scenes look into the planning and execution of an editorial photoshoot” while working alongside fashion photographer Jason Ierace as he captures their hair and makeup looks live on stage.

“Rae, Sarah and Jason will take the audience on a creative journey as they break down a brief, define how to achieve the desired look, talk mood boards and bring the hair and makeup to life in stunning final images.”
