Cote How

This gorgeous bride Claire at Cote How was your typical Australian, relaxed, laid back and easy going.

So my job was impossible.

Ha, just kidding, she was a dream to work with. Her style is very simple and natural and she wanted this look to travel through to her hair and makeup.

Cote How is a beautiful setting and with her natural look I wanted Claire to look fresh, young and glow with flawless skin.

I used a very light foundation on her skin as she has a great completion, added lots of pink to her cheeks and lips with subtle rose pinks and earthy tones on her eyes.

In these lovely photographs she has sent me she looks simply and effortlessly beautiful.

Leeming House Penrith

Faye got married at Leeming House Penrith in August. I love the first picture above, it’s just what you would hope a wedding morning would be. All the girls chatting, getting ready, while the hair and makeup professionals do their thing!

Faye was a relaxed bride and at her trial wanted to be very natural and subtle as she’s not a huge makeup wearer.

However on the day I did one of her bridesmaids first, with a smokey eye (using brown earthy colours) and some extra individual false lashes and Faye decided she wanted to have that too.

I think the phrase ‘smokey eye’ makes people think about the girls from ‘The Only Way is Essex’, however it’s just the name of the technique, you can do it in any colour and as subtle as you wish.

So for Faye with her fair skin and strawberry hair with bright blue eyes I used brown and gold tones, the extra lashes as to look as natural as possible but really make her eyes stand out without being too ‘made up’ don’t you think?

The other thing is, when you have makeup on with jeans and a cotton top, some people can feel quite over the top. But once the princess dress goes on, and the hair is styled and the diamonds are sparkling makeup some people feel they want more makeup.

As I always say, there’s no right or wrong.

The most important thing is for you to feel great, if that means hardly any makeup that you want to do yourself or lots of false lashes applied by mean, it’s fine AS LONG AS YOU ARE HAPPY x

Mobile Wedding Makeup Artist at Broadoaks

As a MOBILE WEDDING MAKEUP ARTIST I love working at Broadoaks, the location is wonderful, the building is beautiful whether it’s a bright Sunny day, or even if it’s pouring with rain.

There’s always a chilled atmosphere and nothing is too much trouble for the staff.

This wedding was particularly relaxed, and the bride so friendly and bubbly, and easy going.

She has a beautiful bone structure, but did have some redness on her face, so I really wanted to give her a flawless look and make those beautiful eyes and cheekbones stand out.
