Australia’s national Eurovision is coming to the Gold Coast and Liz Tieu, head of the hair and makeup department for the show, has partnered with Moroccanoil to create illustrious looks for all performers, back-up performers, bands and guests artists. Liz boasts experience in the competition’s backstage scene since 2016, where she was the hair and makeup artist for Dami Im.
“The thing I love about ‘Eurovision – Australia Decides’ is that it’s one big collaboration between the artists, the creative director, the lighting, staging, choreography and wardrobe teams, as well as our hair and makeup team,” Liz said. “For me the show is all about diversity and celebrating that. It’s an extravaganza of lights, sequins, great vocals, big hair and lots of divas – in a good way!
This year’s show will include acts from IOTA, Diana Rouvas, Vanessa Amorosi, Casey Donovan, Jack Vidgen, Montaigne, Jaguar Jonze, Didirri, Jordan-Ravi and First Nations artist Mitch Tambo.
“It’s all about variety this year and I’m super excited to create a personalised look for each and every artist,” Liz said. “All the artists already have their own unique look, so my job is to accentuate what looks best for them on stage. I’ll be careful to stay true to their personality but also to take things up a notch to an international level, because the winner of this contest will represent Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 to be held in Rotterdam.”
Liz’s processes sees her take notes on each performer, communicate with them about their style and create the ideal aesthetic to elevate their on stage persona. Mororccanoil is another essential partner within this agenda.
“I was super excited when Morocanoil were announced as the Presenting Partner of the Eurovision Song Contest for the next five years,” Liz said. “It was a natural progression for them to come on board in Australia as our event partner for ‘Eurovision – Australia Decides’. The partnership with our show and Eurovision Song Contest builds on the brand’s success as a celebrity and fashion industry favourite, and having Morocanoil hairstylists along with my experienced team of makeup artists, will be a wonderful collaboration this year.”
Liz points to the brand’s Mending Infusion and iconic hero Treatment to prep the hair, while the Dry Texture Spray and Luminous Hairspray are great tools for styling and finishing the hair.
