It’s been a lovely wedding season this year. As usual I’ve had the chance to meet and work with such lovely brides. This bride requested a very natural look with a focus on glowing skin and well groomed brows. We kept the eyes very natural opting for a set of shorter length falsies just to add some volume to her natural last line.
i’ve been so lucky to have had the opportunity to do makeup for so many kind and lovely brides. i want to thank all my friends and my previous brides for all of their referrals. every bride i’ve worked with has been so sweet including this beautiful bride. she was so trusting in my work and honestly so appreciative – such a pleasure and honour to work with!
for her wedding day, she wanted emphasis on her eyes and some nice and natural contouring. for her evening look, we just enhanced her daytime look by adding another half set of lashes to create more volume in her lashes and deepened the colours and contours.
congratulations my dear!

This adorable bride is a natural beauty, so naturally she wanted makeup that would keep looking as natural as possible. She was not a fan of metallic, glittery makeup, so we kept everything very matte. I used a variety of browns and taupes to contour her eyes to create dimension and matte peach blush and highlighter powder to sculpt her face. I had a lovely time beatifying this sweet bride last year!
meet jenny, the easy-going and sweet as pie bride that was referred to me by my hairstylist danny mak from prowave hair salon:
she showed me an image of a makeup look that she liked where the bride had eye makeup with the inner corners brightly highlighted and fluffy lashes creating a wide doe-eyed look. since my bride has slightly monolid eyes i used deep brown matte eyeshadow to create shape on the upper lid and used a matte amber blusher to contour her eyes to give an illusion of depth. i then stacked a half set of lashes in the centre of the full set in order to create a rounder shape.
this is the genuinely sweet bride that put her complete trust in me for her makeup. she normally wears no makeup at all and was so open to trying whatever i had to suggest. originally, she had sent to me an image of korean inspired glowing skin makeup, but for her engagement shoot, since she was wearing a black textured dress and loves to wear her light grey colour contacts, i suggested a more smoky look to better contour her colour contacts. she was so open to trying the makeup. and for the day of her wedding, we went for the more natural look, focusing on highlights, contouring and glowing skin.
in the evening, we darkened the makeup every so slightly to accommodate for the dimmer lighting:
congratulations to this lovely bride! it was such a pleasure getting to know her!
i had so much fun doing makeup for this bubbly and energetic bride! she is by far the most fun-loving bride that i’ve had the opportunity to do makeup for! her entire bridal party was so fun and open to having COLOUR for their eyes.
the bride told me that she wanted dramatic eyes with lots, i mean LOTS of lashes! so to create this very smokey yet romantic dolly-eyed look, we doubled up the lashes and lined the lower lash line and waterline with deep brown gel liner to bring out her light brown eyes.
the makeup process was captured so well with my favorite wedding photographer, Leon Chai.
this sweet bride requested natural and soft makeup for her wedding at berkeley field house in toronto. rounded eyes and rosy cheeks suited perfectly this bubbly and cute lady! she doesn’t normally wear a lot of makeup, so keeping it natural for the daytime close up beauty shots worked best.
in the evening, just before the ceremony, we doubled up the lashes, deepened the contours and lined the waterline of her eyes to enhance the look for photography that would now be taken from more of a distance.
it was such a pleasure doing makeup for this sweet bride! Congrats!
