As we all know last Thursday evening was the biggest night in New Zealand’s music industry with the annual Vodafone New Zealand Music Awards being held at Vector Arena in Auckland.
I was lucky enough to be backstage among all the glamour, snapping for Maybelline’s instagram, to capture the stars getting ready for the big night on the red carpet.
There was a big focus on flawless, clean skin and the key products to create this was Maybelline’s Fit Me Matte & Poreless liquid foundation, Dream Lumi highlighting pen and the Studio Sculpt contour and highlight palette to sculpt and give the skin a glowing, dewy finish in all the right places.
There was a mixture of both bold winged eyeliner and bold lips. Tami Neilson’s dramatic eye look was created with The Nudes palette and the Eyestudio Gel Liner, finished with my personal favourite mascara, the Lash Sensational. Her artist on the day was the lovely Mary Estelle.
The hair looks were created by Redken and my favourite hair look of the night definitely had to go to Colin Mathura-Jeffree and his braids!
A huge congratulations goes out to the stunning Gin Wigmore who took away the Best Female Solo Artist award. She was very sweet and humble and also managed to break her award before she got to the media room! The lucky lady is also taking home a year’s supply of Maybelline!
Hope you enjoy these behind the scene snaps xx
