Brisbane entrepreneur, Hong Le has extensive experience as a sought-after makeup artist – specialising in bridal, runway, television and advertising. Noticing a gap in the market and the demand for quality and cruelty-free products, Hong branched out with her own range of cosmetics, Le Rouge Beauty.
Utilising her knowledge of what women want when it comes to cosmetics, Hong sourced and tested the products in New York with a strong focus on natural looking and lasting makeup. Environmentally and ethically conscious, she also ensured her products are vegan-friendly and cruelty-free; a standard that is growing in demand.
Paraben-free, gluten-free, hypoallergenic, dermatologist-tested (never on animals) Le Rouge Beauty makeup stays flawless and is long lasting, which is essential in the hot and humid Australian environment and meets the demands of the everyday woman.
Affordable and favoured by makeup artists, Le Rouge Beauty cosmetics contain Vitamins A, C & E which are antioxidant vitamins that help to protect cells from free radical damage. The collection includes must-haves like primers, powders, mineral blushes and lipsticks. The Brow Balm is a smudge proof gluten-free and vegan formula, great for the Queensland humidity and is available in 3 colours – blonde, brunette and deep brunette with brow pencils coming soon.
Le Rouge Beauty blushes are silky, mineral-enriched powders that create a streak-free and radiant long wearing finish – the Shimmer Blush adds depth and dimension for a glowing finish. Lipstick colours are on-trend and deeply hydrating with soft elastic waxes and flexible polymers that create a thin film that moves with the lips and provides a comfortable and satiny finish.
Continuously asked by brides,”where do I get a good lipstick or foundation that will last?”, Hong and her team of makeup artists at Le Rouge Beauty are now able to provide a one-stop shop when it comes to special event makeup. Currently stocked at Ubermen on George Street, Brisbane, Le Rouge products are predominately ordered online with free shipping on orders over $50.
