When you think of glamorous events in Perth, there is one incomparable affair that springs to mind. The elusive Dîner en Blanc. An elegant large-scale picnic originating from Paris, Le Dîner en Blanc takes place in a secret location, revealed to invited guests at the very last minute.
Such an event requires ALL of the preparation. Luckily, some fantastic Perth businesses have us covered.
Makeup & Lashes
Do we ever feel more fierce than when we have just had a fresh brow tint and lash refill? I think not.
The team of talented specialists at Eloquent Eyes are passionate about helping women feel their absolute best, and will have your lashes looking luscious in no time. Whether you want a simple natural look makeup, or the works with full glam volume extensions, this is the place for you. The team are also offering a special for all confirmed Dîner en Blanc guests express natural lashes for only $99! That is a half set of premade lashes in an hour for bookings between the 2nd and 6th November.
Tan and Brows
Are you a naturally golden brown colour? And all you have to do is blink at the sun and you immediately have a swoon-worthy sun-kissed glow? Well goody for you, I’m happy for you. Not bitter at all. Not jealous. I’ll just sit over here in my sheer (literally) pastiness and blend in ENTIRELY to the mass of white at Le Dîner en Blanc.
Jokes, anyone who knows me knows full well I will be tanning to the hilt for this event! I’m an avid self tanner, with my pale English rose skin being absolutely no match for the Aussie sun. However, for an event like this, one does not DIY. One seeks out the help of Parlour Beautique. There’s also a Perth Happenings special in place for you, leaving no reason not to have a professional take care of your glowy skin needs.
Parlour Beautique are offering the following specials for one day only! Spray tans for just $15, and spray tans with henna brows for just $59 on 6th November. Bookings to be made by calling the salon and mentioning this offer.
Personally I’m a fan of an expertly executed blow dry. The more volume the better – big hair, big dreams and all that!
Whether your look is somewhere in the ‘bigger the better’ region (me), or Parisian sleek and chic is more your jam, get yourself along to Reflections Studio for Hair. The team are experts in blondes, colour correction, styling and more. A special is also on offer from these lovely ladies on the 6th and 7th November only – Shampoo and Blow dry with curls only $50! Make sure you mention this blog when booking.
The pièce de resistance of your glam prep. Who you trust your face with for an event is an intensely personal choice in my belief. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – makeup has the power to totally transform your appearance. It’s magic. However it’s important to find an MUA who understands your face and works to enhances it, not change it. I find that seeing MUA’s work on my friends and people I know is a pretty good indicator.
Hollie Jay MUA is a NOR based artist and has worked on a handful of faces I know, nailing it every time. Treat yourself to a total glam experience for an event like this and have Hollie do all the hard work for you! She is Perth Happenings’ Director, Pieta’s go-to girl for make-up.
