Yesterday I received an email letting me know that one of the wonderful weddings I created the natural bridal hair & makeup for has been featured over at The Lane.
The bride Jenna was one of the most fun ones I have ever worked with and check out all her beyond talented friends creating beautiful details for her wedding.
She is also founder of the boutique natural soap business Maple Soaps, which are the most gorgeous handcrafted vegan soaps, which smell delicous and are free
of any synthetic fragrance.

I was also interviewed and asked about my tips on how to create my signature natural makeup look, as seen above.
I thought I share it here with you, along with with best products to achieve this look:

One of our enduringly favourite looks for bridal beauty is this supernatural face you created…how did you do it?
The right prep and base is key for this minimally beautiful look. Spritz you face with a hydrating mist, I currently love Gressa Purifying Mist. Then apply a high quality skin serum oil, for example Gressa Purifying Oil for radiant, well prepped skin. A cream highlighter applied to cheekbones enhances the bone structure. A sheer foundation like Vapour Atmosphere Luminous Foundation or tinted moisturizer buffed into the skin with a soft foundation brush evens out skin without masking it. For extra radiance & colour corrections try using Stratus another great product by luxury organic brand Vapour. Use a high coverage concealer like Au Naturale Creme Concealer only to cover redness or blemishes for an invisible flawless finish. Use a completely translucent powder only through the t-zone to keep excess shine at bay.

And the eyes, they’re ‘enhanced’ but not heavily made up…whats the secret to achieving that?
Start with hydrating the eye area. Tata Harper Restorative Eye Crème is a real winner. Evening out the eyelid with a hint of a tinted eye-primer or foundation. Apply a dab of clear gloss as highlight in the inner corners or alternatively a shimmery light eyeshadow like Au Naturale Creme Eye Shadow. A nude eyeliner on the inner rim creates an open eyed fresh look. Enhance your eyelashes by curling them and coating them with a natural effect Mascara like 100% Pure Black Tea Mascara. It’s important to make sure you apply the mascara right on the roots of the lashes to give that framing effect and a luscious thick lash line.

What about colour, what should brides keep in mind for a natural look but drawing on hints of colour like this?
The only colour I used on this look focusses on the lips and cheeks. This is very soft matte peach tone, which will enhance the skin tone. To create the soft focus hint of colour, I recommend using the same product for lips & cheeks. RMS lip2cheek in demure is a great sublte colour. Dabbing it on with fingers will create that subtle effortless chic. It’s best to carry the colour with you for touch-up’s of the lips on your wedding day.

And any final, expert tips?
Create a beauty ritual that you and your skin love as far out from the wedding as possible. I recommend keeping a routine that works for you and to avoid skincare changes closer to the day. Always choose quality products over quantity. I also believe that the actual beauty ritual is important: Take time to massage your skin daily or fit in the occasional professional spa facial massage, both will increase circulation and nutrition for the skin, delivering that glow from within and relax your facial muscles as well. Get used to keeping an hydrating spray on your desk and a multi tasking skin balm in your handbag to hydrate lips, cuticles and any dry areas in your face. This way your skin will be at it’s best in time for your wedding or any occasion you might have coming up.

My work as destination wedding makeup artist took me recently to Bali, I packed Dave into my suitcase and we stayed a for a few days after the wedding.
We were in luck when sydney wedding photographer extraordinaire Jo Bartholomew who also flew in from Australia was up to take some shots of us!
I love her work.
Not only did we have a blast on this shoot, we might have booked them to be our wedding photographers too…

Bali was nothing short of spectacular and I will share our personal travel photos on my personal blog here real soon!

Catherine and David are in Love and it shows in every single image captured by Daniel Ferris.
Their magical wedding was featured over at Hello May today and I am not surprised.
The pure honesty and rawness of it had me fascinated immediately.
It really shows it’s NOT about all the little details, it’s really about the couple, LOVE, friends and family.
No fancy backdrop needed, flowers put together on the day by the groom and so many other irrelevant bits and pieces weren’t needed here.
This is the kind of wedding I love my job for this is what inspires me.
I love being a makeup artist in Australia every day. I love the places my work take me to and the wonderful people I get to meet.
There are days were I just feel incredibly lucky and grateful. Today is such a day.
And if you not already noticed how chilled and amazing this couple is, I will leave you with their wedding “theme”inspiration:
“Our inspiration was to throw the kind of party that we would want to go to – which particularly meant a natural outdoor setting (rain or shine – and we got both)” says Catherine.

A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to once more being part of a wedding with the incredible Tim Coulson as photographer.
I adore his work, it’s simply beautiful and has a certain honesty about it, he manages to capture people in a very different and beautiful way.
This wedding was really special in many ways. The bride & groom were from France, and had a small number of family & friends coming over from Europe to celebrate with them.
Somehow french always manage to keep everything especially tasteful, and while Eve the beautiful bride was pregnant and had a gorgeous little bump, she looked effortless and fashionable in her chic and sleek dress,
and only a french woman could carry of those big ruffles and still look elegant and timeless. Congratulations Eve & Guillaume!
Thanks Tim for sharing the pictures with me!

Minutia Editorial Work for HELLO MAY

Posted on: Wednesday, November 6, 2013

rue-de-seine-lace-bridal-gown-wedding-dress-jason-ierace-boho

It’s always so exciting to see my work in print, it makes my heart jump a little!
My latest work for the wonderful Hello May Magazine will be published tomorrow, so I thought I will show you a little sneak peek.

Here is how the superwoman Sophie, behind Hello May announced the next issue:

“First up we must send a virtual high five out to the crew behind our ‘Minutia’ shoot. A fashion editorial that celebrates the lace embellishments and delicate handiwork that goes into creating a bridal gown, like this one above from our friends at Rue De Seine.
Every frame taken by our pal and fashion photographer Jason Ierace hit the nail on the metaphorical head. We actually lost sleep trying to decide on which images to put in the magazine, so thought we’d share a few of our faves we were unable to include here on the blog!
Model Phoebe’s look was created by hair stylist Vanessa Henwood and make up artist Liv Lundelius, two extremely talented ladies based out of Sydney. You can check out more of Liv’s gorgeous work here on the Hello May directory.
Big thanks to the amazing Alexandra Thompson from The Edit for styling this gorgeous shoot and the ever so talented Poppies & Amber for the gorgeous floral creations. If you are a bride looking for bouquets, crowns or boutonnieres for your wedding day, be sure to check out more from Poppies & Amber here on the Hello May directory.
Issue three hits the newsstands tomorrow, Thursday the 7th of November, so get ready to storm your local newsagent with gusto folks and flip to page 96 for a plethora of gorgeous bridal gowns of the lace and detail variety!”

Latest work: Supernatural Spring Look

I was lucky to work with the wonderful Luisa Brimble, who is an uber-talented photographer and just overall amazing person and the fabulous blogger Natalie form Eat Read Love on a fashion editorial shoot for a designer boutique in Cronulla, called ROAR.
If you are ever in the area, check it out! The shop is located in a former church building, and is just really worth visiting.

Are you liking the look? Here is how I achieved it:

The model sure was a natural beauty, so I kept her makeup very spring/summery and bare. I wanted to create an undone look, like a cool girl would achieve herself. Just emphasizing her features without the use of colour.
Base:
Starting with a hydrating toner by Tata Harper and massaging Jessica’s dry skin with nourishing moisturizer Vinosource Riche by Caudalie Paris/
Her gorgeous skin only needed a dab of foundation through the center, I chose Chanel Vitalumiere in 20, which gives a beautiful radiant sheen and Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in Opal for highlights on the cheekbone & upper lip. I brightened her under eye area with By Terry Touch expert in Nr.3, then contoured her cheekbones with Benefit Hula Bronzer to sculpt the cheeks.
Eyes:
I used a nude eyeliner to open Jessica’s pretty eyes, dabbing clear gloss into the inner corners of her eye and just sweeping underneath her lower lashes with a soft liner brush and some warm brown eyeshadow.On the upper lid I soflty blended a wash of peach pink eyeshadow by Nars. The brows were filled in with a Laura Mercier Brow Pencil in Blonde and then brushed up with an Ardell Brow Gel.
After curling her lashes, I only used one coat of mascara to keep it more understated.

Lips: A tinted balm on the lip and ready was this super simple and natural look.

Hair: The hair was tonged in different directions, to create a random natural wave with texture and movement.

And now I am really in mood for Sydney Spring!

Behind the scenes – White Magazine shoot from Nicholas Sim on Vimeo.

I just discovered that White Magazine released the little makeing off video of our previous shoot “Sweet Moments”.
Can you spot the little sweet & cheeky flowergirl? Her name was Liv as well, so we had a lot of name confusion fun , as we had 3 Liv’s on this shoot.
Makeup Liv, aka me, Little Liv aka Flowergirl and big Liv, who was our gorgeous model for the day.
Little Liv loved my lip glosses, and the only way we could make her collaborate was to constantly top up her lips with some sparkle… and a pink brush, obvsly.
It really made my day to see this. Hope you enjoy too!
