‘Portia absolutely perfects this Vintage/Grunge look, whilst making it modern all at the same time. So cleaver. Wearing chunky black boots and a high neck knit, the focus is all on the overall vintage vibe. Rocking out in her classic Levi jeans and retro belt, her platinum top knot it the perfect accessory.

A bright colour can sometimes be a bit daunting when it comes to makeup, but adding a red lip to your look can be a simple solution to add vibrancy and fun to any outfit. However when it comes to achieving the perfection application, things aren’t always so easy. Getting the right amount of coverage as well as staying power are key factors when it comes to applying a pop lip look. Here at Street Smith we wanted to find out how to get the perfect pout to add a bit off fun or even drama to our usual routine.  For this How-To we decided it was time to be bold and go for a look that is classic, simple and effective. We love how a simple splash of colour can lift an entire outfit and make the right statement whether it’s a subtle softer shade to a bright bold berry red.

Luckily for us you don’t need to be a professional makeup artists to create the perfect pop lip (although it definitely helps!) all you need are a few quick tips and the right lipstick to get started.

For all the steps on getting the ultimate kiss-proof look we chatted to Bek from the NARS boutique at Mecca on Toorak rd about how she achieves a flawless lip finish.

ONE // PREP: For those cheeky fines lines or if you know you will be sipping on Champagne, always use a Lip liner. Line around the lip increasing the shape where needed by stepping outside your natural lip shape #KendellJenner. If your like us and love your reds, perfect your prep time by using a pore perfecter or primer before lining.

TWO // FILL: Fill in your lined lip with the lip liner, keeping in mind the colour must be well matched to your chosen red Lipstick.  *To deepen a red lipstick choose a darker liner to fill in your lips and to soften a red use a lighter liner.

THREE // LIPSTICK: Apply your chosen red to your lined lips with a lip brush. Using a sharp edged brush will give a precise application and give a bold effect. After lipstick if need be, re-apply your lip liner to the corners of your mouth. *Further your bold pout by using a edged brush and a light concealer to the corners of your mouth, this will make your red POP.

FOUR // REDEFINE:  Reapply your Red Lipstick when needed using the appropriate steps listed. Then – Pout and pucker up! *All products used in imagery are by Nars from Mecca Cosmetica.

New York Fashion Week 2015 – Lets all give a standing ovation!

 What an incredible week it was. Street Smith Photographer, Vincent Calderon was there on the street, pacing up the concrete jungle like no other. Snap happy is an understatement, Vincent captured a bevy of stunning women. All Australian and all sporting they’re NYFW best!

 So many vibrant looks, luxe textures, colours and accessorising like absolute pro’s. This is why New York is the trend setter of style. Sit, relax and unwind – Your in a New York State of Mind.


Below: Soft billowy lace worn with ballet pink heels and a pair of lust worthy sunglasses.  The intense pink mirrored lenses on those sunglasses are amazing. Pretty in Pink!

Above: This stunner is all legs in her beautiful grey silk two piece, paired with a soft pair of donkey brown lace up heels. This look is a wonderful day to night spring look, especially with the touch of gold and her red lip.

Below: Now this is how you wear a suit. Margaret can do no wrong in this navy blue suit, I mean seriously. Keeping her accessorising to the bear minimum with a brown wrap belt and a simple pear of gold earrings. Navy and brown, oh so 70′s.

Above: Keeping it all business in a very avant-garde black look, Miss Centenera is faultless in her polka dot silk blouse and black skirt… which cuts away at the back – we love! the intricate details in her look are simply what makes her looks so great, the gold broach, her textured Chanel bag and the panel detailing in her skirt. #LadyBoss.

Below: Firstly, I cant decide what I’m loving more – the super cute blue cheer skirt or the incredibly sexy black over the knee boots! This looks is so refreshing, original and so effortlessly cool. Looking like she is walking the runways in her gold Ray bans and sleek locks. Love.

Above: Sarah looks incredible in Dion Lee’s emerald silk dress, so nice seeing Australians sporting fellow designers in the Big Apple. Letting the Dion dress be the hero with her look kept fresh and natural making it all about that dress!

Below: Zanita looks so chic in a pair of relaxed boyfriend jeans, cape like style blue shirt and oh those shoes! – just a pair of sexy strappy maroon heels. The pairing in this outfit is amazingly different. Combining baby blue with maroon who would have thought. Our girl Zanita sure did, her style is flawless and with that tall willowy body she can pull it all off.

Above: Last but definitely not least. Wearing a black suit, striped shirt and a black tie scarf; whilst accessorising like a pro, with white heels and a small black bag. Margaret does it again! …Très Bianca Jagger circa 1972.
