I recently got some photos back from a destination wedding I worked at in Queensland. I was hired to make up the gorgeous Jessica for her wedding day. Jess wanted something classic and not over the top. Although Jess wears makeup daily, its normally limited to just eyeliner and on occasion some highlighter, so she made it clear that she wasn't use to having a full face of makeup on and didn't want it to feel unnatural and heavy. At the trial we went through the usual question
Earlier this year I had my biggest wedding yet, and thought it would be a good idea to invest in some new brushes so I didn't have to spend a huge amount of time cleaning brushes between each face. I did a lot of research about which brushes to get. I needed quite a few brushes, but also didn't want to spend all my money on them. I came to the conclusion that a set would be the way to go, and that Zoeva would be my choice.
I purchased the Zoeva Luxe Complete Set, which is
I thought it would be interesting to see the journey I take in creating a makeup look from trial to wedding day. Below you can find photos from a recent bridal look I did on the lovely Lee. I have included photos from the trial, and a few pics of final product from the wedding day itself. At the trial I like to discuss in detail everything from styling of hair and bridal look, to where the wedding will take place in order to create the best look for my client. We talk about h
This is a look I did last weekend on the gorgeous Elo. Elo's sister was having a really chilled low-key picnic style wedding and Elo wanted a natural look, but with a flawless finish. As you can see in the before photo if you scroll down, Elo has a bit of acne scarring and a few spots. I aimed to cover them as best I could with a full coverage matte foundation and then went in gently with a natural eye and lip. Elo is wearing "Baby Demi Whispie" eyelashes by Adele's Lashes. W
I love makeup! Well obviously, it would be weird to be in my profession and not have a love for the products and the craft itself right? My husband always says to me that he prefers when I wear less or better still no makeup at all. Although very flattered, I try and explain to him that i'm not wearing makeup for him or for anyone else, I'm wearing it for me. I love everything there is to love about makeup and what it can do. I love how it can transform my tired, dehydrated f
On New Years Day this year, I worked with beautiful Helena to create this gorgeous soft glowing natural glam look for a party she was to attend. We had a lot of fun, and I was super happy with the way this turned out. #glamour #beautymakeup #makeupjunkie #makeupoftheday #naturalmakeup #bridalmakeup #makeupblog #makeupblogger #mua #makeupartist #makeuplook #makeupaddict #makeup #makeupartist #dayglam #bronzedmakeup #bronzed #bronzedbeauty #beauty #beautyblogger #beautyblog #gl
Here is a makeup look I created for a member of the bridal party for a wedding I worked on in late December. Danielle wanted quite a full coverage look. I used the Urban Decay - Naked Skin foundation which is a full coverage satin finish foundation, and we went for a gold smokey eye, with some black liner all around the eye. I did not wing the eyeliner here, and Danielle also wanted her waterline filled in. I kept it pretty soft on the lips, and just applied a URBAN DECAY 24/
