Runway Makeup Artist Coming To Murwillumbah!

Runway Makeup Artist Coming To Murwillumbah!

Shannon Cole, the QLD Event Makeup Artist for Napoleon Perdis cosmetics will be in Murwillumbah on March 21st to conduct a 3 hour, hands-on makeup workshop at Mapp & Hession Pharmacy in King St.

The daily routine of applying makeup is one most women are familiar with, but sometimes a little extra guidance from an experienced professional can take your efforts from “everyday” to “fabulous”!

Shannon works in the National Creative Team of Napoleon Perdis cosmetics, but began her career in Queensland with a diploma in Makeup Artistry. Whilst studying, she had the opportunity to fly to Hollywood where she gained further skills and experience and received certificates in High Fashion and Glamour, Beauty Makeup for Film/TV, Airbrushing and Special Effects/Character Makeup.

Since completing her studies, Shannon has worked on creative events such as the Alex Perry runway show, the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival 2011, the Brisbane Ekka Fashion Parades in 2008, 2010 and 2011 and the Kevin Murphy Hair photo shoot.

Shannon is now bringing her knowledge and experience to Mapp & Hession Pharmacy. The concept for the evening is small groups of ladies will work on their own “look” under the guidance of the Napoleon Perdis’ makeup artist. Whatever skill level you are at, from beginner to experienced, Shannon can show you how to achieve your best through her practical advice. You can try the ideas right there on the night and learn from an experienced professional.

You will be guided step by step through cleansing and skin care tips, then on the right products for your skin type and how to achieve the best look for you!

Napoleon Perdis has always sought to demystify makeup and his aim is to bring out the celebrity in every woman. Napoleon and his creative team, including makeup artists like Shannon, have become backstage regulars at both New York and Australian fashion weeks where they work with the industry’s top designers to create and communicate the trends of the season. While the Napoleon Perdis philosophy is strongly influenced by fashion, the brand is about reality and providing a look that you can wear day to day, or giving you the skills to create fabulous evening looks. It’s about celebrating and elevating your natural beauty with confidence-building products.

Glamour is at the heart of the Napoleon Perdis brand. Napoleon believes it’s sourced from within. Napoleon Perdis channels the celebrity in every woman.
Napoleon’s key influences include fashion, Hollywood, music, art and interior design. But while his eye is focused on trends and popular culture, he is committed to translating the directional into the doable. Women always want wearable.

It is these concepts that have made Napoleon Perdis cosmetics Australia’s number one makeup brand. Since starting his brand in Sydney in 1995, Napoleon has gone from strength to strength with celebrity endorsements and many of Hollywood’s A-list singing his praises.

Workshops like the one at Mapp & Hession Pharmacy on March 21st are part of the Napoleon Perdis philosophy of education and pro-tips, all designed to make you look and feel your best
The evening is a fun night and a great opportunity to learn from an industry professional in a relaxed setting. All equipment is provided to use on the night, including makeup brushes and samples of the fabulous Napoleon Perdis makeup products. Attendees on the night also receive a Napoleon Perdis gift bag. Phone Mapp & Hession Pharmacy on 66721394 for all the details.
To ensure everyone gets personalised attention, the numbers are very limited. Don’t miss out on this unique experience, phone today!

Have you gained immunity?

Posted on 25 May 2011

For many of us in this modern age of reality TV, the concept of “Immunity” means the contestant gets to spend another week losing weight on “The Biggest Loser”, roughing it in the wilderness on “Survivor” or living in the house on “Big Brother”.

We have all seen the contestants take an “immunity challenge” by undergoing an arduous task to “protect” themselves.

How many of us have considered “gaining immunity”, especially now that winter is coming, and the cold and flu season is upon us.
The good news is, protecting yourself is easy!

If you find yourself going from cold to cold during the winter months , or perhaps your just looking for ways to stop yourself getting sick, then you have to actively do something to “gain” immunity.

The immune system is a complex mechanism the body uses to rid it of bacteria and viruses that could potentially do harm. It involves blood and plasma, lymph nodes and the lymphatic system, bone marrow and the thymus to name a few.


It should come as no surprise that nutrition is the most important ingredient if you want a strong immune system. Eating highly processed or fast foods, doesn’t give you the nutrition you require for your body to function properly. Eating fresh fruit and vegetables is your best defence, but when you feel you need to take vitamins, you should make sure you are getting Vitamin A, B6, B12, selenium, zinc and vitamin D. Vitamin D is rapidly gaining a reputation as an immune boosting dynamo!


When we sleep, the immune system is rejuvenated and strengthened. Melatonin is released when it is dark and helps us to maintain a good sleep. The other benefit of Melatonin is that it is a powerful antioxidant that helps the immune system while we sleep.


Regular, moderate exercise can have a beneficial effect on your immune system and make you more resistant to catching a cold. Exercise is also a great stress buster and stress can have a very bad effect on you immune system. Check out the local directories for a Tai Chee, Yoga or Pilates class near you and win the “immunity challenge”.


There are many supplements around that claim to boost your immunity and many herbs are used at different stages of an infection. We use a range of herbs at Mapp & Hession pharmacy including Andrographis, Echinacea and Cat’s Claw to name a few, as well as probiotics, amino acids and essential fatty acids.

The right advice is essential. Just picking something off the shelf at your supermarket when doing the groceries may not get you the results you want.

Call in and talk to Paul or any of the staff at Mapp & Hession Pharmacy about the right supplements for you and your family so you can be healthy this winter and “gain immunity”!!
