There has been a lot of buzz surrounding the flawless-looking models showing off the latest designer-wear at Fiji Fashion Week in May in Suva.

Harlotte Cosmetics flew a team of eight make-up artists over from Australia to demonstrate the beauty and artistry of the Harlotte products on Fiji’s top models to get them runway-ready over the three-night event.

Local make-up artists Lodoviko Tucika and Litiana Vere formed part of the Harlotte team working on the catwalk models.

Models included favourites, 2017 Teen Model of the Year winner Shrea Shimran Prasad and experienced catwalk model Octavia Lal. Tucika and Vere  as they are commonly known have been using Harlotte products for a year already, since its entry into the Fijian market now stocked at their workplace, Totoka Hair and Make Up, Denarau.


Re-create the stand-out look from Fiji Fashion Week 2017

A favourite look from the Pacific Resort Wear show, Harlotte teamed a rich ombre lip with the signature Harlotte glow.

Recreate the look at home: Start with a base of Afterglow Foundation, sweep on some Firecracker Blush, on the high cheekbone use a light application of Ego Cheek Highlighter.

On the lips: Different to a standard lipstick, Liquid Lips are a new fashion trend made popular by Kylie Jenner and are a long wearing matte lipstick. For this look, Harlotte used the shade Anna Conda and finished with Toey Zoey colour gloss.

For any fashion model, the addition of groomed eyebrows and long lashes is a must. Harlotte used eyebrow threesome and double lashes for their look.

On day two for the Trend Setters show, a more tropical look was used which included a super bright lip. Products used were Afterglow Foundation, Smokey Eye Palette, Fashfest Double Lash, Eyebrow Threesome, Firecracker Blush, Ego Highlighter, Betty Diddit Liquid Lips.

This paired very well with fashion from some of Fiji’s trendiest designers.


Go glam with Gold Couture

The theme for the 10 year celebration was all about gold, so it was no wonder Harlotte switched it up for the third evening with a super-glam look designed by Harlotte founder Michelle Crofts and brilliantly executed by the team.

Models looked incredibly glam on the runway, showing off some amazing couture and evening wear amongst other looks.


To get the look from the Gold couture show:

Apply Afterglow foundation to the face, and blend firecracker blush onto cheeks, followed with Ego highlighter. Eyes are lined with Black Beauty liner with a winged effect for emphasis. For extra effect be sure to add lashes. For lips, use a shade of gold lipstick, for the FFW models we used MAC which is available at Tappoo stores.

And if you’re not brave enough to try this looks at home on your own, you can contact Totoka Hair & Make Up for a free 15-minute make up lesson where they can teach you how to re-create any of these looks. They key is to have a few good quality brushes and practice the techniques. Easy!
