Amy & Matt – Summer Wedding

Amy & Matt – Matiatia, Waiheke Island

Wow, wow, wow!  Amy and Matt’s stunning summer wedding on Waiheke Island was one to remember (For many reasons)  Firstly Hubby and I couldn’t  make the wedding as baby decided to come early! I was lucky that our dear friends were very understanding and of course Amy was very happy to have my team step in and make her beautiful for her big day. Amy wanted a classic fresh look for hair and makeup to go with her modern gown. The bridesmaids were half hair up with neutral makeup as the embellished gowns were a statement piece.

Amy is incredibly down-to-earth and I was lucky to yet again work with not only my friends, but the bridal party was just as awesome. With a long list of things to love about this wedding some of the highlights were the getting ready venues (oh the views, oh the space!), the super-stylish bridal party and the stunning location.   Best wishes to an awesome couple.

Vintage Chic Bride

Hair & Makeup

Our vintage chic bride is one of the prettiest, and most accessible make-up trends for this season. Think of English rose, soft and romantic tones. Whether you pair this with a smokey eye or a natural face, this hue is the new nude for this season brides.

vintage chic

Classic Bride

Hair & Makeup

This might be a classic, but the low bun has really come back for this season among loose updos, soft chignons, and boho waves. This classic look is always a stunning an elegant way to frame the face paired with the seductive and timeless red lip.

Classic

Relaxed Bride

Hair & Makeup

Relaxed bride is exactly that think of effortless, natural, wavy, textured locks with a simple hair piece that is not fussy but pretty all the same. Well groomed brows and soft earthy tones are a must too pull off this look.

A Sneak Peak – Anthea – Makeup & Hair by Ali’s Makeup Station

When Anthea first walked into my studio for her bridal trial, I immediately thought my job is going to be so easy! With her flawless skin and infectious personality I knew this wedding was going to be lots of fun.  Anthea shared her story of how she met Hubby to be (Andrew) and her plans for her wedding.  Anthea chose a braided half hair up, with a very natural makeup palette of nudes and earthy tones to compliment her bright blue eyes.

The couple married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony in West Auckland at  Matua Valley Farm, followed by reception at Provenance Matua Valley. Cyclone Pam was very kind and the weather was just perfect!

The Lauren and Delwyn Project capture beautifully the details of their day.  The couple had some scenic pictures taken with their bridal party at the cliff top at Muriwai Beach. Congratulations to the newly wed Anthea and Andrew.

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.

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!
