Need a pick me up after work? Or have a half hour to spare on your lunch break?


Head down to City Square on Swanston Street for an instant makeover by MSFW stylistsKEVIN.MURPHY and Mecca Maxima.



Starting at 10am daily and running late into the evening, these free style bars will make you runway ready, sporting the latest trends that will be featured on the catwalk.


The Mecca Maxima make-up bar has set up three different services. If your nails are looking a little dull and boring head over to the nail booth where the staff will liven them up with Kit Nail Strips ($9.95) . Choose anything from a floral pattern to a triangular design to embrace the nail art trend that has been massive recently.



You can also add a little colour to your look by heading over to the lipstick counter where the girls will happily assist you in choosing a colour to match your complexion as well as your outfit. Pinks, oranges and purples are the ‘it’ colours that will be used on the models over the week for MSFW by Mecca make-up artists so why not give it a try and find out the tricks of the trade while your at the make-up bar.


Also available from the Mecca artists is a fake eyelash bar to help widen up your eyes. From individually applied lashes to a full set, the girls will apply them in no time and also give you first hand advice and tips for the tricky application process of using eyelashes.



Once your face and nails have been revamped, head over to the KEVIN.MURPHY Style Bar, where the hair stylists will transform your tresses into runway ready looks. The official hair partner of MSFW will help you in discovering what hair products from the Kevin Murphy range will best suit your locks and how best to use them. They will also style your hair, from sleek and straight to bouncy, luscious curls.



The KEVIN.MURPHY and Mecca Maxima style bars are great for instant transformations and allow you to look like you have just stepped off the runway and onto the street.


The KEVIN.MURPHY and Mecca Maxima style bars will be running for the duration of MSFW (September 3 – September 6) at City Square.
