Donning a figure hugging Yeojin Bae dress, the newly engaged Hart joined Mayor of Melbourne Robert Doyle to officially launch the program. To match her stunning dress, Mecca Cosmetica’s Lead Artist, Bec Shannon created Hart’s radiant spring time look. Focusing on creating a natural look, Shannon created a dewey complexion using NARS Pure Radiant Tinted Moisturiser and Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light. To emphasise Hart’s killer cheekbones, Shannon used Sunday Riley Blush in Blushing. To highlight Hart’s eyes, Shannon used Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Liner in Lionfish, NARS Dual Intensity Eyeshadow in Callisto (launching in August), By Terry Caron Khol Terrybly in Opalene Flash in the inner corners of the eyes and Kevin Aucion The Essential Defining Mascara. Shannon used Ellis Faas Hot Lips in 408 to give Hart’s lips a spring time glow.
