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!

Once my sassy colleague Shannon got engaged, she immediately came to me to book me as her makeup artist! I was so flattered needless to say since she is a woman who knows exactly what she wants. Over the years, she has referred three of of her goods friends to me  (see Azadeh’s wedding, as well as Agatha’s wedding) and was honoured when she asked me to do her makeup as well.

Some brides come to me knowing very little about makeup and not knowing what type of makeup look they would like, but not my Shannon! This lady knows her face well and knew right away that she wanted dramatic makeup on the upper lids and minimal on the lower. We focused on brightening her skin and on bringing her eyes forward.

This bridal party so much fun to work with and Shannon was a stunning bride to say the least; She looked like an absolute doll with her golden locks framing her face.

I’d also like to mention my fantastic makeup assistant, Eliza Tam. Like myself, she’s a perfectionist. She is always professional and takes her time to make sure that everyone feels beautiful. She did an awesome job on members of the bridal party!

A warm thank you also to Cliq Creative for providing the photos.

Thank you Shannon for having me as your makeup artist! It was an absolute pleasure! xoxo

Wedding-436Congratulations beautiful bride!

When my brother-in-law announced his engagement to my now sister-in-law, I was ecstatic! Not only is she beautiful, she is such a loving and thoughtful person. She always wears a huge smile on her sweet face and is so genuinely kind. I was honoured when she asked me to be her makeup artist for their special day.

After trying out a few makeup looks, we finally decided on the perfectly soft coral makeup with baby nude pink lips that would accentuate her eyes and match their coral winery wedding at Willow Springs Winery.

Thanks Amanda for having me beautify your already beautiful face on your marriage to Fred! xoxo
