AAFW backstage report: COMMAS

COMMAS backstage report - Tuesday June 1, 2021


Hunter Lab co-founder, Elliot Waldron.


Australian natural skin health brand, Hunter Lab, has collaborated with luxury Australian swim and resort-wear label, COMMAS, to bring effortless, three-dimensional skin to its show-stopping runway at AAFW 2021.

“Focusing on preparation, contour and highlight, Hunter Lab helps mirror the elegant silhouettes and pared back luxury of COMMAS latest collection,” said Waldron.


1. MARINE HEALING ESSENCE - A soothing and refreshing treatment infused with marine actives to deeply hydrate and prepare skin.

Usage: Warm a few drops between palms and press gently into skin. Apply more on areas of dehydration and redness to plump and calm.

Finish: Rapidly absorbs and leaves little to no residue or shine to skin. Perfect alone for a super natural finish, or layered with additional products to desired effect.

2. LIPID VITAMIN FACE OIL - A multi-functional oil imbued with 19 super oils and extracts to brighten and enliven the complexion.

Usage: Warm four drops between palms and press gently into skin. For additional luminosity, focus on high points of the face such as cheek and brow bones, lips and bridge of the nose. Mix with Daily Face Fuel for a more natural radiance and less gloss.

Finish: Natural to dewy depending on amount applied and application technique. Layer under moisturiser for a more satin finish, or on top for high-gloss radiance. Use as highlighter as needed (including on body and hair).

3. AURA FACIAL SCULPTING TOOL - A 24K gold-plated facial massage tool charged with gentle microcurrent to help sculpt and tone the face.

Usage: Once skin has been prepped with Marine Healing Essence and Lipid Vitamin Face Oil, use the natural contours of Aura to sculpt the jawline, cheeks and lift the brows. Use the rounded end to help eliminate puffiness and signs of fatigue around the eye area.

Finish: Brings an immediate sculpted and lifted appearance to the face. Great for enhancing circulation for a naturally flushed glow.

4. SPF50+ Facial Sunscreen - A broad spectrum, zinc-based sun protection balm offering two hour water resistance and a natural, matte finish.

Usage: For this look, apply small amounts of the balm to fingers and spread across the skin. Focus on the centre of the face and blend outward to nothing.

Finish: The subtle speach hue is excellent for highlighting and brings dimension for a super natural finish.
