As you would know, I am a big animal lover and advocate for cruelty free beauty. But up until now I haven't been able to offer Vegan makeup to my beautiful bridal clients. I have recently made some new additions to my makeup kit and am proud to add Vegan Bridal Makeup to my list of services.
So if you are in Sydney, The Southern Highlands or the Illawarra and South coast and would like a Vegan Makeup Artist for your wedding, please get in touch and we can arrange a trial and make your bridal dreams come true!
To keep you in the loop of whats happening, its always good to share a few bits and pieces from other work I do and I now have a website where I share all my advertising, magazine and commercial work from working with Westfeild to Universal pictures, Sony Music and more.

Its always lovely being a part of my client's most wonderful ( wedding ) day of their lives. But its pretty hard to top when your best bud is the bride!
Gab and I have known each other forever and ever... eating fairy bread and playing tag type forever. And I was so blessed and excited to be one of her bridesmaids and to doll her up for her wedding day. Probably one of the funnest weddings I have ever been to. She even managed to do a full flip in her wedding dress during their first dance!
Gab and Zandy were married in Kiama and danced the night away at Crooked River Wines in Gerringong.
*For those of you who I havent met yet, I'm the one with the makeup brush
Its been ages since I updated my blog and let you all know what I've been up to. Work has been so incredibly busy (and amazing) lately that the updates have been slipping my mind. But not to worry, here is my last month in a nut shell.
The most exciting things that have been happening have been as a result of being selected to be a part of the Global Hair and Makeup Team who travelled to Cannes to be a part of the Cannes Film Festival and then over to Monaco for the Grand Prix. As a part of the team I was lucky enough to be behind the scenes at the Film Festival working with Celebrities and models on some pretty amazing fashion and red carpet events that supported the festival. I was in full Celeb spotting mode the whole time and met some pretty incredible people along the way.
In Monaco we worked at the Amber Lounge. This is the offical Formula One charity fashion show and following parties and after parties. It was amazing to work at this event with designer, Osman (who dresses Beyonce, Nicki Minaj and countless other amazing individuals) at the Le Meridian in Monte Carlo. The view alone is stunning and to be right there in the hustle and bustle is a wonderful feeling.
So Lets Talk Makeup!
The backstage looks were in two distinct categories. Glamour styles and clean 'no makeup' looks. My personal favourite is the cleaner, natural side of makeup. For me I love a good challenge. Its quite hard to make skin that is imperfect look perfect and also look like there is no makeup on the skin. Its all smoke and mirrors.
The glamour looks were classic and beautiful with red lips, perfect winged eyeliner and of course a good lash (We used Baiela Lashes on this trip!). Our first show was down on the beach in Cannes - Not a bad office for the day! - red carpet was being installed as we arrived. After heading backstage and getting set up it was time for the models to arrive. The look was a modern twist on the classic Marilyn Monroe Lip and Eye Liner. We used OCC Liquid Lipsticks for the classic red and kept the skin nice and fresh with lots of moist textures so their skin was glowing and soft.
At the fashion shows it was a different story! Skin was bare, contouring wasn't seen and the focus wasn't on the model, it was all about the clothing. And Oh my goodness, the clothing was amazing! From hand beaded flowing luxury gowns to resort wear, it was beautiful.
Take a look at the gallery below to see what I've been up to!

Firstly, What a stunning bride?!
I've had the pleasure of knowing Elisha for a few years now since our retail days and she has always been a bubbly, happy and positive person. I had the honour of being a part of her wedding to Paul, at Sylvan Glen Country House in Bundanoon, nestled in NSW Southern Highlands.
For her bridal makeup, we kept things simple. Just perfect skin, a touch of contouring and a winged eyeliner. Soft, natural looking makeup is sometimes all you need for your wedding day.
Thanks Elisha for a wonderful day!
This absolute stunner, Amanda married her prince charming in a wedding fit for a Princess! Married in Bowral and their Reception at Milton Park Country House this classic couple said 'I Do' surrounded by their friends and family.
For Amanda's wedding makeup, we opted to focus on her eyes. Amanda has amazing big eyes and can carry a smokey eye like no other. Products used include cruelty free eyeshadows from Urban Decay cosmetics and hand made eyelashes from Modelrock. Paired with an elegant bridal up-do hair style Amanda looked stunning in her classic gown.
It was so lovely to be a part of such a special day. The favourite part of my job as a mobile wedding makeup artist is seeing the stunning bride's confidence grow once her bridal makeup and hair is complete. And in a beautiful bridal suite in the Southern Highlands, what better setting for a morning of pampering?!
