Hi Guys!

Just thought I would share some photos inside of my studio! This is from Sunday where I had a full day of makeup and hair trials,this year is teaming up to be a big one! Love that everyone is getting in early and organised for the year ahead.

I really do love this little space, it has such a great energy and have really enjoyed the clients I have had in so far. Also its in a great location so I quite often get clients that will leave straight from the studio either into the City or out for a girls night!

Alexis Wedding Day Makeup & Hair- Novotel Manly

Posted on

Uncategorised

My first wedding back after my honeymoon and what a great way to kick the year off, I got to make up this gorgeous face below – Alexis and her lovely Bridesmaids. We opted for a very smoky eye and fresh face with minimal lips, just gloss. Alexis was so beautiful and carefree, she just wanted to marry her man! So carefree that she actually only purchased her wedding dress that week as she had some problems with her previous dress that she had made. Preparations were done at the Novotel in Manly.

All photos are non retouched and no filter applied, just taken from my humble Samsung!  Its hard to really show off the makeup sometimes with the light in hotel rooms however I have just purchased a portable ring light that attaches to my phone from Luvo so stay tuned!

Makeup was adapted to suit each of the girls as they were quite different skin tones and colourings. Hair was pinned low and loose for an effortless look to match the girls Camilla dresses (how cool for a bridesmaids dress!)

A little mid week fun with the lovely Diana who opted for a small intimate lunch ceremony at Gunners Barracks Mosman. Diana had an incredible wedding gown from turkish designer Tarik Ediz, so we teamed this with a beautiful loose upstyle and smokey “poppy” eyes.

Diana had such an gorgeous face to work with, and very symmetrical proportions. Her face was like a doll!

I then pinned Diana’s hair up in sections with a little help of our friend called “hair extentions” this combined with hair padding courtesy of Sharon Blain, this is what it looked like!

Laurens Wedding Day Makeup & Hair- Moby Dicks Whale Beach

Uncategorised

My last wedding for 2016 and what a way to finish! Lauren chose to start the morning preparations at an air bnb beach house in Palm Beach nice and close to her venue at Moby Dicks. Lauren was such a beautiful person and had such a great energy- it was easy to make her look even more amazing than she looked fresh faced at 9:30am.

Bridesmaids were Lauren’s two sisters and I also got to glam up her Mother and also new Mother-in-law to be! As Lauren opted for a beach- side wedding she wanted to keep the makeup quite bronzed and dewy looking, Most of the focus was concentrated on the eyes, using a bronzed smokey palette we created a look that brought out her green eyes but wasn’t too over-powering. Individual lashes in short flares by Ardell were applies over the centre 3rd of her lash-line, Hair was set in large hot rollers and then brushed through and sprayed for an effortless beach look.

Laurens sisters rarely wear makeup so wanted something a little more subdued and barely there.  I stuck with the nude tones on the eyes and applied very light foundation through the t-zone and blended out.

Hair was tonged and pinned loosely to create a textured low up-style that wasn’t too formal or over-done.

Laurens dress was from Made with Love and Bridesmaids were from Zimmermann (such a great choice)! Photographer on the day was Ben Wyeth and as you can see by the photos his work is amazing. I have worked with Ben now on a number of weddings and he is just so lovely to be around makes you look even better in photos!

I have had a lot of requests from clients at the moment to showcase some of my Indian weddings, Here is one from earlier in the year from Komals wedding day. I had a ball making up all her gorgeous bridemaids, even though it was a very early start (3:30am) everyone was in good spirits and excited to be “glammed up” for the day.

This is me below with some of the girls! Total stunners!!

Preparations were held at the Novotel Norwest Sydney

 

 

Makeup was kept more bronzed and and highlighted on the brow bone and lid to make the eyes “POP”. Eyeliner was quite thick and winged to create a little drama and depth, I used Tarte Clay Paint liner- its made from amazonian clay and goes on smooth without dragging on the lid, I like how it comes in a little squeezy tube until many others in pot form which tends to dry out, Also so long lasting!

Amalia’s Wedding Day Makeup & Hair- InterContinental Double Bay

Uncategorised

Sunday was spent glamourfying Amalia at the very lush InterContinental Double Bay, as Amalia was holding her Reception at their the Hotel upgraded her to the Presidential Suite and it was just breathtaking! I think we all felt like we were Hollywood Royalty! I always say I love the “getting ready” process and that probably why I thrive and am so passionate about creating a fun atmosphere whilst getting pampered and preened before the big moment!

Makeup and hair was kept quite neutral and soft as the Bride dosn’t wear makeup day to day. Amalia’s naturally curly hair was smoothed over and re-defined with the Babyliss Conical tong and Shine spray by AG.

Bridesmaids were Amalia’s older Sister, Sister In-Law and Bestie!

Charlene’s Wedding Makeup & Hair, Lavender Lodge Bundanoon

Saturday was spent at the gorgeous Lavender Lodge in Bundanoon which is next to Bowral for Charlene’s wedding day

Charlene had 4 Bridesmaids and her Mother by her side, and preparations were so much fun with old time loves songs playing in the background.

For Charlene’s Makeup and hair we opted for a bronzed glow and warm shadow to bring out her amazing green eyes. Ardell individual lashes were layered up from the outer corners to mid way along the lash line to thicken and make the eyes pop. I love these lashes as you are in total control of exactly where they are placed and are very comfortable to wear whilst still looking more natural than a full strip.I like to coat and separate the lashes lightly before applying the individual lashes, then if need be apply another coat after the adhesive sets- I used MAC Zoom mascara .

For Charlene’s lips I went back to my ol favourite Benefit lip and cheek stain in Posie tint. This colour enhances the natural pink in the lips and with each coat intensifies, I wanted this to look quite glossy so I used a Victoria Secret lip gloss in a soft pink tone. this glosses are great as they smell divine and are also flavored!! Charlene wore a stunning lace bustier dress from Karen Willis Holmes, which fitted her small frame amazingly and I have to say is now one of my favourite Bridal desginers!

And a little sneak peak of what the Bridesmaids vibe looked like-

We opted for the Brows and the lip to be the main focal point- and was a little fashion forward! The girls wore soft blue billowy dresses with lace around the bust-line, I couldn’t believe these were purchased from ASOS! Layers of Ardell lashes were applied in Medium and the lipstick is my MAC in “Hangup”. The flower crowns added a whimsical look and reminded me a little of the musical “The Sound of Music”.

Wedding Makeup & Hair, Sydney Polo Club

The last ever wedding to be held at Sydney Polo Club was for my gorgeous Bride Jasmine.

Originally from Portsmouth England, Jasmine and her Partner Andrew are now local residents of Clovelly. These are some of the beautiful photos captured on the day-

 

Makeup & Hair

First I used Bobbi Brown Skin brightening lotion to prep and prime the skin. I always apply eye makeup first to ensure a clean flawless finish to the base and under-eye area. After applying foundation and a little translucent powder to set, I applied Bobbi Brown long wear cream shadow stick in my favourite shade “Sand Dune”. Then to give a little extra warmth and glow to the lid i used Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick in “Bronze”, I then had Jasmine open her eyes and contoured the crease in MAC pressed shadow in “Cork”.

A makeup is not complete without lashes and I just LOVE Modelrock Lashes #292 I always have these in my kit and are my total go-to. After the Duo lash adhesive dried I lined and flicked Tarte Clay liner until I got the dramatic pop of the eyes I was after.

 

Lipstick used was of course MAC in “Neon Orange” which just set Jasmines blue eyes off!

Clip-in hair extensions from Bondi Hair were used to add volume and bulk to Jasmines low side bun. I used the Babyliss Conical tong to create texture and wave throughout the style. A beautiful flower crown was then pinned gently into the style to create a whimsical effortless look.

Cute props were also used throughout the evening, which made for fun photos!

Jessie’s Wedding- Melross Farm Kangaroo Valley

Last Saturday I spent the day glamourfying Jessie and her bridal party at the gorgeous Melross Farm in the Kangaroo Valley.

Jessie wore a gorgeous beaded wedding dress with a sweet-heart neckline with soft straps that sat slightly off her shoulders

Makeup and hair

The bride opted for a fresh look with her makeup so I kept it quite light with her foundation as she has almost flawless Asian skin I wanted to show that off. Next I tailored Jessie’s Eyebrows to create a nice full frame, I used a new product which I love from Ardell in Medium brown, its a mix between a cream and a wax- which is great to control the hair in the direction you want.

On Jessie’s eyes i used a Bobbi Brown long wear cream shadow stick in “Sand dune” this is honestly one of my “go to’s” I know some people tend to steer clear of cream shadows as some can crease but this is fantastic and dosn’t budge. Sometimes I even use this as an undercoat for shimmers of pressed eyeshadows to add intensity.  Next i lined and flicked the eyes with  MAC fluid line and applied a full strip of Shu uemura false lashes. These lashes are fabulous especially for Asian eyes as they are slightly thicker and have a beautiful feathery look to them. Really did make an impact!

For Jessie’s hair as it was quite fine I cheated and used a Sharon Blain hair padding- these are fabulous as they are literally hair bundled up in a soft netting so they give a nice full look whilst being undetectable! As you can see I then gathered the hair to the side to create a soft chignon. A little shine spray from NAK and she was good to go!

Makeup and hair for the Bridesmaids was all a little different to bring out the girls personalities and style. Hair was chic and makeup was concentrated around the eyes in bronze/charcoal tones. I used the shimmer brick by Bobbi Brown and MAC pigment pots to create a soft dewy look.
