Feature on Paper & Lace – Georgie & Nathan

I am delighted to see our hair and makeup for Georgies wedding featured on Paper & Lace‘s gorgeous blog. http://wp.me/p3O1vs-ed9

When Georgie got in touch with me about her dream wedding I jumped at the chance to be involved with her day. Georgie doesnt wear a lot of makeup and wanted something very natural to enhance her sparking blue eyes.  We chose a very romantic modern bun for her hair to suit the incredible dress by Alma J Bridal.  We got the bridal team ready at Georgies family farm in Waiuku. It just so happened that Georgie’s father had rescued a baby lamb a few days earlier and had a little pen set up in the lounge. This was a great distraction for us all!!! Congratulations to the gorgeous couple and a big thank you to Paper & Lace for featuring our work.

Moody Glamour Meets Classic Romance – Styled Shoot

Moody Glamour Meets Classic Romance – I had a wonderful opportunity to style a wedding shoot with a team of very talented vendors.

Moving away from the traditional white wedding, and inspired by a palette of gold, blue & black, this styled-shoot explores a bold new look for daring brides to be.  I couldnt be happier with the end results! White Magazine has featured my work  White Magazine click here

Brow Magic – Product Review

My friend Sandy sent me out some Poni Cosmetics brow products to try and I am completely won over!!!

Let me introduce you to “BROW MAGIC”  this brown waxed pencil is is designed to be used on any brow colour! I cant tell you how excited I am to have this item in my kit. This one item could potentially replace so many other brow products I used to use!

Last weekend I used this brow pencil on seven different brows/colours/shapes/textures and it gave me fantastic results on all clients.

This  waxed pencil is waterproof / sweat proof waxed which stands the test of time.

BROW MAGIC contains biotin, which helps to re-grow dormant hair follicles Awesome for those of you like me who are trying to grow my brows back!


Bridal Makeup Tips – Foundation for all skin types

We get a lot of our clients asking what products we use. One of my favourite palettes for this bridal season is the BBU Palette by Bobbi Brown.

We have a lot of brides who often find foundations to yellow for their complexion and find foundations are too dark.  This palette is great for paler skin tones.

The concealer and corrector are especially useful. It covers dark circles and highlights in just the right areas. I love the range of colors it offers!!!

This palette is especially ideal for photo shoots, weddings and runway shows.

Here is our beautiful bride that I used the palette on recently. Thanks for reading our Bridal Makeup Tips – Foundation for all skin types.
