It’s hard not to like Megan Gale. She is a confident, eloquent woman who has seen remarkable success in her time in the spotlight.
While Megan has played a big role at previous L’Oreal Melbourne Fashion Festival, this year she has been cast as the official face, which we couldn’t be more happy about! Excitingly, myself alongside four other amazing bloggers will be joining her in Melbourne to cover the festival, from beauty to runway looks and everything in between as a L’Oreal Paris Official Blogger.
Stay tuned for exclusive interviews, giveaways and coverage of the festival that you wont find anywhere else!
The L’Oreal Paris Official Bloggers recently had the chance to have a chat with Megan about her role at LMFF, which you can check out below.
Plus check out three delicious face charts with some of the key beauty looks from the festival, concocted by makeup extra-ordinare Rae Morris, and an exclusive behind the scenes video of the campaign shoot with Megan herself!
You are the official face of the Festival for L’Oreal Paris this year… is that exciting for you?
It’s fantastic to be representing L’Oreal at LMFF for the second year running. It’s such a fun week and one of my highlights for the year as far as work goes. There are a lot of great events to attend throughout the week and I get to work with and meet such amazing people. Last year I got to work with L’Oreal Paris ambassador Amy Mullins who was inspirational, intelligent and loads of fun.
What are you looking forward to most about this year’s Festival?
We normally kick off the festival with the official welcome luncheon, which this year I will be hosting. It’s a great way to get a lot of the people who participate in the festival in one room and connect before the week really gets into full swing.
Do you have a specific regime – beauty and otherwise – in order to prepare for big event like LMFF?
I usually try and ensure that I’m well rested and energised before the week begins as I know my schedule will be quite hectic. So to achieve this I make sure I’ve consistently had a good nights sleep and had time to fit in some exercise as I know I could be too busy to fit it in later in the week.
If you could suggest one product every girl should have in their handbag what would it be? Why?
For me lipstick or lip gloss. It can just freshen up your whole face! The one I always carry with me is Glam Shine in Grenadine.
Do you have any quick fix makeup tricks for when you need to go from work to play… or from meetings to front row at LMFF?
There are so many ways to change up a makeup look and give it more of a dramatic feel. Going from a natural or nude shade of lipstick to red or pink can liven things up is one way to liven up a look. Perhaps even lining the inside of your eyes with black kohl can make them pop and stand out. Picking a feature and strengthening it is usually a good trick although just be sure not to do that with your whole face as it can look way too overdone.
