Invercargill makeup artist Kerry Penisula-Spain is living the dream at New Zealand Fashion Week.

The hairdresser and primary makeup artist for Venom Hair Salon said she was looking forward to being part of New Zealand's pre-eminent fashion show and meeting other makeup artists.

"I've been lucky enough [in Invercargill] to have a lot of opportunities with Venom in doing their fashion shows and also doing photo shoots for some international magazines. The only thing I'm missing is working with other makeup artists," Penisula-Spain said.

This year marks the first time she has worked at New Zealand Fashion Week, and said the opportunity was a rare one that came as a good surprise. "I entered a Smashbox makeup competition to get there, and they then invited me to be a part of it after seeing my application," she said.

The NZ Fashion Week opening ceremony was held yesterday t the Viaduct Events Centre in Auckland.
