Fashfest: Beauty wrap

Natural, glowing skin, highlighted cheeks, smoky eyes, statement lips and the avant-garde makeup, beehives, braids and sleek ponytails - Fashfest had it all.

Canberra's premier fashion event is an opportunity for hair and makeup artists to step outside the square and get creative.

Hair and makeup artists spent months talking with designers to get a feel for what they'd be putting on the catwalk and then the head of hair Craig Rhodes and director of makeup Diana Cheetham created looks to complement the fashion.

450 models needed to be made up across 3 nights and 6 shows - what an effort!

Some of the looks must be seen to be believed.
