What are your FW14 fashion essentials?
I recently bought a pair of 60s style knee high boots which I had never tried before and I now wear them everywhere. Great with skirt or dress or tucked into skinnies. This is definitely a trend piece as the 60s influence was everywhere on the runway for FW14. I also love a good coat and tend to go for the pea coat style.
Can you give our readers some tips on how to look good in pictures especially on Instagram?
You need to practice and practice!! Use your mirror at home and find out what angles work for you. I also find the “fake laugh” and looking downwards to the side is a good standard pose. However, I am very careful with my picture content so I will use the apps available to make sure all pictures maintain a high standard.
Being Australian, I would recommend to keep it as simple as possible and as natural as you can to get. I love making a cat’s eye with a black liner and some statement lips when I am at events but I still try to keep my skin as natural as possible. Eye lash curlers like Shu Umura are fantastic and essential. Also, I have noticed that Asian women, especially ladies in Korea have amazing skin, so sun protection is important. I like to swim especially when I am back home so I always wear a straw sunhat even when swimming!
