Beauty & Health


If there was one thing we could do again, it would be the Beauty Weekend. It was big. It was bold. And totally glamorous. If you missed the epic two-day beauty festival, read on. We’ve got you covered on all the event highlights – who was there, what they wore and what went down BTS.
Over 180 fans camped out to be the first to see James. They braved the uber cool morning armed with hot chocolates, handheld mirrors and a pressed powder ready to meet their favourite beauty vlogger!
James was chauffeured to Pacific Fair and made a discreet entrance to the Centre via Valet. As soon as fans caught wind that James was in the house, shockwaves were felt through the thousands of fans waiting in The Resort. They chanted “Sister, Sister” giving James a huge warm welcome for his first-ever Australian tour. That was after he visited Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and cuddled a Koala in the cutest safari suit we ever did see! What we took away from Sister James:
  • Tarte Shape Tape will change your life
  • Invest in a good set of makeup brushes
All eyes were on James, but the VIP bar was teeming with who’s who on the Gold Coast….even MAFS star, Ash Irvine, dropped in for a visit and an obligatory photo with James, of course! Ash was decked out in a cute playsuit from our faves, Witchery. Courtney Hancock, Yvette Hardy and Mollie Rose also popped in for a bubbles and some beauty chat.
You can thank Tyson Scott-Price for the epic beats filling The Resort. Tay-Tay, the Pussycat Dolls and 90’s fierce female girl band, TLC, were just some of the playlist highlights as fans sung in unison to No Scrubs.
And Saturday was just a taster of what was to come. On Sunday, Michael Finch and Lily Brown were welcomed by shrieks and cries as their fans patiently waited for a photo with the Queensland beauty heavyweights. Michael donned some Balmain for the occasion and Lily epitomised a Greek goddess in a white, one-shoulder Kookai jumpsuit and Tony Bianco heels. Lily’s advice:
  • Lily couldn’t emphasise any more how important it is to take care of your skin
  • Eye cream and décolletage cream will be the best weapons in your anti-ageing armoury
  • And Always. Wear. Sunscreen.
What would one find in Michael’s arsenal? Like James, Michael who is a huge fan of Tarte Shape Tape and idolises the one-and-only, Kim Kardashian.
So whilst we’re all still recovering from what was an epic beauty fest, we’re already planning next year’s affair. Stay tuned sisters!
