It’s always around wedding season that I remember and start getting around to updating my blog. Lucky for me, I have amazingly sweet brides who are willing to search through their wedding photos to send me some beautiful shots from their wedding day.
This beauty had the perfect face to wear these lashes that went on for miles! She opted for a lush red lips for her evening reception.
It was an absolute pleasure doing makeup for this super sweet and considerate bride.
Thank you for having me as your makeup artist!
This was a particularly special wedding because I have known the bride since she was wee little; She’s my bestie’s baby sister, so you can imagine how honoured (and nervous) I was when she asked me to be her makeup artist for her special day.
Her character is as sweet as pie, so of course we needed a makeup look that would match that. She chose to accentuate her lashes – just like a doll – and selected soft pink lips and cheeks to match her fair skin. She really did look like a porcelain doll!
Thank you for having me on your wedding day! You were truly stunning.

This blushing bride truly has a cowgirl soul and her wedding, a serious farmhouse vibe. With her cowboy boots peeking under her lovely bridal gown and her most loved horse by her side along with her beau, her wedding was picture perfect.
With already stunning features, it was so easy to beautify this bride. Some contouring around the eyes paired with golden eyeshadow, individual lashes and layers of mascara was already enough to make her eyes pop. Her skin was kept warm with some contouring, subtle peach blush and gentle highlighting.
It was so lovely to work with such a warm and free-spirited person. Thank you for being so sweet and making my job so enjoyable!

Being a working mom of two has left me little time to blog these days! I’m finally taking some time on this sunny day to write a post about a lovely bride that I had the opportunity to work with last year.
I do not exaggerate when I say that somehow I have been lucky enough to have only the sweetest brides book with me :). We are still in touch and I have become true friends with several of them.
This bride is among these lovely ladies. She is a natural beauty so naturally, she wanted a makeup look that would not be too dramatic. Although seemingly simple, this makeup look took a lot of thought. We tested it out a couple of times before deciding on which made her feel the most naturally beautiful. The look: focus on brows and lashes, glowing skin – lots of glow! and nude lips – not your typical nude though, a pink-beige.
Thank you for having me as your makeup artist and most of all, thank you for taking the time to keep in touch!

I’m always so happy when brides come to me for a trial and find that they’ve found the perfect fit. Like clothing, there is a certain style and taste to makeup.
This lovely bride wanted to still recognize herself in the mirror after the makeup. She didn’t want anything too bold: just a hint of colour and minimal contouring. We kept her natural eye shape and just dressed them up with some soft contouring and jet black falsies.
Happy bride = Happy MUA!
