Amazing day in Villa Maria Vineyard Estate {Auckland, New Zealand} where Jessica & Chris celebrated their special day with close friends and families.

The couple shared their love story: couple got together 6 years ago while they both been living in London {UK}; Chris proposed to Jessica “down in Queenstown (one of our favourite spots!) at Mt Difficulty vineyard while enjoying the beautiful views and wine in August 2015.”

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.

MAC Pro Event

Amy and I attended the Mac Pro evening showcasing the makeup trends and techniques for creating flawless beauty. Here are some favs:

MAC – NEW Alluring Aquatic Collection

International Launch Date – June 2014 at MAC Locations

I went into MAC this week to get my hands on some of the NEW Aqua MAC Collection and to my disappointment it’s still not here in NZ!!!

The limited edition Alluring Aquatic Collection hits stores next month and has all us makeup lovers in anticipation! I have had a good look online and the collection has a great range of eye shadows, eye/lip liners, lipsticks, bronzer, brushes and nail varnish.

The shades are not what I expected but definitely universal colours that will work on all skin tones.
