Did you know that my packages include hair styling and make up with the wonderful girls at BLUSH BAR?

A special thanks to our special guests Shane Crawford, David Parkin & our host Billy Brownless and our fashionista Eliza Icke.

This weekโ€™s Spotlight in Business is BLUSH BAR.

Geelongโ€™s very fabulous and fetching Blush Bar is an award-winning, one-stop-shop for professional makeup services, hair styling, colour and body beautification.

Emma, the lovely lady boss began her makeup journey 20 years ago at Napoleon Makeup Academy. From a fabulous freelance career to working with high-profile commercial companies to creating a cosmetics line to being an inspiring educator, Emmaโ€™s love of makeup and desire to create beautiful faces is clearly evident in her meticulous work at Blush Bar and swag of awards (including ABIA Winner of VIC Makeup Artist of the Year in 2011, 2013 & 2015 plus GBEA Small Business Winner in 2016, 2017 and 2018)!

Stocking supreme brands, flawlessly applying makeup, professionally colouring & styling hair and effecting a range of beautification treatments including waxing, brows, tan and so much more, Blush Barโ€™s services and staff are highly skilled and exceptionally gifted. Aptly referred to as the girl gang, Blush Barโ€™s crew is made up of a plethora of uber-talented makeup artists, hair stylists and beauty therapists.

Sit back, relax, enjoy a glass of champagne and let Blush Barโ€™s stylists get you 'red-carpet-ready'.

Cassandra Psiarkas.

Beautiful pop of colour in this number! Cass had an existing leopard print dress that she wanted incorporated into the design. So I chopped it up & used parts on the bodice, sleeves & made a scarf for her bag. She played around with lots of shoes & headpiece combinations before nailing it! Beautiful covered button detail on the back completed the look.

Cass was a finalist in Local lady of the day & the millinery category.

We often talk about the concept of fate and signs, but when a Paper Nautilus Shell washes up to your feet on your wedding day I'd say that's the very definition of both these words. Know what a Paper Nautilus Shell is? No? Neither did we, until we spent a day with Stephanie + Justin.

According to National Geographic the Nautilus is "a species of octopus as unusual as it is beautiful. They spend their lives drifting near the surface of tropical and subtropical seas."
Paper Nautilus females produce a shell as rare as they are beautiful, and Steph + Justin stumbled upon one on their wedding day as we filmed their photo session at Point Addis beach (on average only 3 of these shells wash ashore every 7 years).

A unique gift from the ocean for two of the loveliest souls we've ever had the pleasure of filming, Steph and Justin here's to a marriage as rare and beautiful as the Nautilius shell, and a sincere thank you for including us in your celebration.

Sending you all our love and good vibes for a wonderful life together,
Xx Grace + Andrew

STAFF SPOTLIGHT @bilyana_blushbar โœจ

โœจ I'm a Beauty therapist at
Blush. I've been in the industry for
over 20 years. I've seen a lot of
different trends & so many exciting
changes along the way. I enjoy all
aspects of beauty therapy & esp
love connecting with people. I love
the feeling I get when I've been able
to put a smile on someone's face
after having a treatment &
witnessing a boost in their

โœจUltimate product that I can't live
without is the 'skincare company's
Viamin C serum! It offers potent anti
oxidant protection, inhibits the
formation of fine lines & brightens
skin tone.

โœจBlush bar has been such a
breath of fresh air for me. I just love
working within a team environment
that is so uplifting & supportive.
There is a real happy vibe at blush &
it's a pleasure being part of such an
inspiring team.

โœจMy ultimate day off is a slow
morning, healthy breakfast, beach
or nature adventures with my boy,
followed by an afternoon of sitting
in the sunshine with a good book!



This amazing shampoo consists of a violet base that enhances and brightens colour by removing yellow and brassy tones from bleached and coloured hair. Formulated to gently cleanse the hair and scalp, hair is left feeling fresh, silky and clean. Rosemary, lavender and orange peel oil calm the scalp and enrich the hair with vitamins that help repair damaged cells.

Q1 What is your specialty? What do you do at blush bar?
Iโ€™m a makeup artist and hairstylist. I love doing soft glam makeup, bridal hairstyles and big bouncy blow waves.

Q2 How long have you been doing your speciality?
Iโ€™ve been doing this for around 5 years now.

Q3 Whats your ultimate product you canโ€™t live without while working? What does it do?
I canโ€™t live without my (probably too many) makeup brushes. Clients always comment that Iโ€™ve got a lot but they all serve a purpose and I like being prepared for anything that gets thrown at me. Also- my crimping iron for updos!

Q4 Why Blush Bar for you? What do you love about it?
Blush Bar has been amazing to help me build up my skill level by doing more faces than I ever have before in my career, and Iโ€™m loving that I have regular clients that I get to see every week.

Q5 What is your ultimate day/night off?
Going on a road trip with friends to walk in nature, go to record stores or crystal shops, eat good food and maybe see some bands.
