Dally M Awards Backstage

The glittering finale to the NRL Season (for most of us ladies anyway) is most definitely the Dally M Awards where we get to see some of our favourite WAGS gracing the Red Carpet, showcasing all of the latest trends in fashion, hair and of course… makeup!

The Dally M Awards were held at The Star, Darling Hotel this past October – The annual event is the official awards night to honour star players, coach, best captain, representative players and rookie of the season.

In 2013, Curtis Collection became the official makeup sponsor of the awards and together with our incredible Curtis Pro Artist team, we created the stunning red carpet looks for over 20 WAGs (wives and girlfriends) and hosts of the evening.


Get the Look – Runway Beauty

BASE: Ace your base by applying Curtis Collection Retexture Creme Face Primer to the skin prior to foundation. For a flawless dewy finish, apply Mineral Photo Touch Foundation all over the face with a touch of Mineral Photo Touch Concealer under the eyes. For added luminosity, mix one to two pumps of Radiant Glow Illuminator into your foundation application.

EYES: Create flawless eyes with Eye Primer – Shadow Magnet. For sexy smouldering eyes, blend Curtis Collection Signature Mineral Quad in London Collection through the lids, sockets and under the eyes. To make colour pop, try adding a touch of Mineral Shimmer Dust in Exotic Airess on the lower lash line. Dab Mineral Shimmer Dust in Golden Girl on the mobile lid for a golden bronzed look and contour with Bronzed Beauty. For extra definition, add Noir Super Wear Gel Liner to the waterline of the eyes for a dramatic finish! Complete the Look with VX Volume Mascara for intense lashes to complete this look.

BROWS: frame the eyes with perfectly styled brows using the Curtis Collection Brow Definer.

CHEEKS: create supermodel cheekbones with Curtis Collection’s perfectly Illuminating Bronzer and contour with Baked Bronzer in Island Goddess. Finish with Baked Blush in Fashionista for a pop of colour on the runway.

LIPS: finish this luminous look off with a perfectly peach pout by applying Curtis Collection Glam Lipstick in VMC as a base, and finish with a touch of V Gloss in Goddess on top for a shimmering brilliance on the lips!

“Being named as the official makeup partner for the NRL’s Dally M Awards Night was an incredible honour for Curtis Collection – to have the opportunity to consult on the red carpet looks for the evening really came back to the core of what I do and love,” Victoria Curtis said.

“The Curtis Collection Makeup Suite at The Darling in Sydney was buzzing all afternoon as we hosted the gorgeous wives and girlfriends of the players as well as hosts and red carpet guests, glamming them up for the big night!”
