Bridal

There’s nothing like doing wedding makeup for family. It was honour to be a part of my sister in law’s sister’s magical wedding. The woodland magic truly came to life and translated so well in the photos.

To match the scenery, we chose champagne and chocolate brown tones for her makeup. We finished off the eyes with a more natural set of lashes and warmed up her cheeks with some coral tones blushes. She was absolutely glowing.

My assistant did an amazing job on all of the bridesmaids. The eyes really stood without looking overly dramatic.

It was such a pleasure to take part in your special day!

I’ve known this beautiful bride and her lovely little sister since their years in high school. It was so unreal getting them ready for the bride’s wedding.

Getting ready for the two-day celebration was nothing short of perfect; A serene start at the family house in a room filled with sunlight and music.

The bride was stunning for both her Hindu and her modern western wedding celebrations. Her makeup was dramatic but not overpowering. We focused on a soft winged contour for the eyeshadow and bronzing blush paired with coral tones for the face. She was just stunning.

I have such fond memories of this bride. Being a part of her big day simply topped them off. Thank you for having me as your makeup artist!

She is amongst many of the brides that I’ve kept in touch with following the wedding. She’s so kind, fun and relaxed, which is precisely how getting ready for her special day was: fun and relaxed.

The makeup look that she wanted was timeless: a subtly smoky eye with burgundy lips. Eyeshadow was carefully blended layer by layer keeping it soft. Lipstick was painted on with a brush, with a nude rather than red lipliner base, again to keep it soft.

The bridal party, also so kind and relaxed, trusted me and my assistant to select a look that we thought suited them best. Everyone was beaming with happiness. Such a beautiful day.

Thank you letting me share in that happiness!

Years after having done makeup for the sister, I was honoured to be doing makeup for this sweet bride. She and her two sisters definitely prefer the “less is more” approach when it comes to makeup. This being said, I swapped out the pink and coral lipsticks from my kit and filled it with multiple different shades and finishes of beiges: matte, shimmery, satin, light, medium, you name it!

As for the eyes, the ladies opted for champagne and earthy tones paired with natural crossed lashes. The overall look? Fresh face and glowing!

Thank you for inviting me as your makeup artist ❤️. I truly had a great time chatting with you all! Xoxo

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!

Congratulations!

I met this lovely bride last year for a trial and to discuss which makeup look she would like for her special day. It’s always difficult choosing a look when we browse online and see images of makeup looks on other women not knowing whether it would suit our features.

After trying out two different looks, we found the perfect one: a subtle cat eye created with eyeshadow. We did a sheer, cool metallic pink lid contoured by warm chocolate tones, topped off with natural yet long falsies with a generous coat of budge-proof mascara.

The result was simply beautiful on such a naturally gorgeous bride. She also has cute little freckles that she wanted concealed, so we used a high coverage yet velvety concealor to do the trick. To match her flowers, we chose an angelic matte velvet pink lipstick.

She looked stunning! Congratulations!
