Aussie Bloggers Christmas Market

You may have heard of Aussie arranging a Bloggers Market for Christmas. Well It happened a few weeks back and I was a part of it as well being in the 'Aussie's Angels' team. I along with a few other bloggers volunteered to hold a stall in the event where we would be showcasing some of our skills or anything interesting to keep the event going.

I obviously choose to hold a make-up stall as that's the only decent skill I have! The market lasted for 6 hours with a series of events arranged by Aussie alongside the stalls.

Below is my make-up stall that I shared with Amina from Innerbelle. We were supplied make-up from the Max Factor range to use for the day. It was quite daunting at first as I had never used their products before and I have to admit I moaned a bit but at the end of the day I had so many favourites from the range. So its all about getting used to things you see.

Don't you just love those little stall cards that Aussie provided us with. I got mine home and it stays in my dressing room now :)

I was petrified at first as although I am used to doing make-up on other people, its usually friends and family who are rather polite if I do a blunder or so. Fortunately it went all well and the people at the event were really friendly. Surprisingly enough I carried out around 10 make overs and people did seem pretty happy with them.

Our stall was actually quite popular hence we had to create an appointment list, although we did not quite follow it due to the super busy day :p

 Makeovers! Look at me - am a pro haha. Don't you just love my friends hair? It's like a mermaid :)

Aussie never disappoints its audience hence they had set up around 6 salons for every hair type where they had amazing hairdressers doing a fantastic job on everyone. It was amazing how everyone looked like a celeb at the end of the day.

A lot of effort had been put into decorating the place in an edgy yet stunning manner. Thumbs up to Aussie for that!

There were quite a few events scheduled for the day one of the popular ones being the Flirt Guru who taught girls tips and tricks on how to make the right move ;) It was quite fun to watch! There was also a Photography class, a Blogging Class and a session which taught us ladies how to dress right for our bodytype.

And not to forget the super famous Photobooth where we could pose using a number of Christmasy props. No I'm not showing you, the pictures from there are quite silly to put up :p

Oops! pardon the dim light here. It was evening by the time we were ready to pose away lol. It was difficult not to spot me with my bright pink and black stripes that day :p I decided to dress casual as I knew I'd be working most of the time. Don't you just love the sisters hairdo? She went for old Hollywood glam.

Overall, it was no less than a 'Gossip Girl' inspired party. Super fun! I can't believe this was the first Aussie event I've been too. It surely won't be the last.

p.s. A big shoutout to Emma from Computergirls Musings. She recognised me immediately and was so sweet to talk to!

What a fun event! I can't believe you were nervous at first. You're such a pro already, so no wonder the girls were happy with their makeovers. :)
