Foundation Bar launches in city, create your own shade

TOOWOOMBA women who struggle to find the perfect foundation have just had their prayers answered.

They will no longer have to worry about finding the perfect shade because Luminosa has just launched the Foundation Bar, by Melli Cosmetics.

Melli Cosmetics custom-blend foundation is created to flawlessly match any skin colour and can control coverage from sheer for everyday wear to a full matte finish.

Clients can also add sunscreen, hydrations and luminosity.

Luminosa is the only store in town to stock the foundation.

At the launch of the city's Foundation bar are (from left) Luminosa owner Ellie Burgoyne and Emily Bird.

After five years in business, owner Ellie Burgoyne decided it was time to expand, and now has two stores operating out of The Chronicle Arcade in Margaret St.

The Foundation Bar officially opened on Saturday and Ms Burgoyne kicked it off with a glamorous party.

More than 80 people attended and the party carried across from Luminosa, into The Chronicle Arcade and the Foundation Bar.

Ms Burgoyne said now the bar was open she was looking forward to Luminosa's next chapter.

"It was great to be able to launch the Foundation Bar after the renovations and really put out there what we do," she said.

"Since announcing custom blend foundation we've attracted many new clients.

"We didn't want to let people's first experience to be a half-painted room, so it is really good to finally have a space to show off the product and blend the perfect foundation for our clients."

Ms Burgoyne said she was always keen to bring new brands to Toowoomba.

"I love being able to bring things to Toowoomba that people haven't had access to before and this is something really unique," she said.

"We work with you to create the perfect foundation, it is tailored to each individual."

The first consultation is $65 and includes a 40 minute session to tailor the perfect shade and a 40ml bottle of foundation.

Refills are then $50.
