What’s not to love about an afternoon of wine, food, fashion, beauty and interiors inspiration in the Barrel Hall at Villa Maria Estate. Guests had a wine tasting of the new Villa Maria Platinum range with senior winemaker David Roper. Discovered the latest beauty innovations from Moroccanoil, Avène, and luxe-y nail brand Smith & Cult. While Warwick Fabrics inspired us all to update any room in our homes with the latest fabric trends. Finally style director Louise Hilsz tempted us to update our winter wardrobes with the new-season fashion runway show.
Sparkle in Style was the theme of our festive celebrations last night at Ponsonby Central, in Auckland. The team decided to get together with clients, influencers, friends, and family to celebrate a great year at BeautyEQ and what better way to show our appreciation than with a gorgeous glass of bubbles and a touch of sparkle.
Thanks to our sponsors Dulcèt from Villa Maria, T Galleria by DFS, and Moroccanoil.

Mastering an everyday makeup look, or gaining the skills to create a smoky eye or contoured cheek, is no longer a beauty duty for the professionals. Beauty EQ hosted one of the first M.A.C Makeup Services parties, which are designed to take the hard work out of mastering your makeup application. The menu was designed to suit any skill level and every makeup look. From that classic neutral or smoky eye trend. To finding the tools and techniques to contour, highlight or strobe your face. Even conquering ready-to-wear, faux lashes, how to, fit the right fit, trim and professionally fit lash extension for any occasion.
By appointment only, book a one-on-one session or get a group of girls together and have a party. You will have a M∙A∙C Artist on hand for 60 minutes. The M.A.C Makeup Service includes a face chart so that you can recreate the look at home. Cost is $90 which is redeemable on any products you purchase. Payment is required at time of booking.
