I absolutely love it when I get the chance to break all the rules and be creative as a wedding makeup artist. When I was asked to be part of a fun wedding inspiration shoot in seaside Caloundra with a celebratory feel, I couldn’t resist. The lovely couple were real-life husband and wife, Tegan and Tariq.
Since “fun” was the order of the day, and I had the prettiest of flowers – not to mention, the prettiest of brides – to work with, a bright pink lip it was! Perfect for Sunshine Coast wedding makeup. And for something a little different, I went with some grey-brown toned depth for definition, and pink-gold shimmer to bring out the eyes. In a twist on the glam eyeliner flick, I used a gorgeous metallic golden brown to soften the striking look.
The team was a good’un. I absolutely adore working with Nicole from Sass & Niki’s Wedding Hair, not only because she does beautiful hair stylin’, but the lady herself is stylin’ too, and she has an awesome personality to boot. For this shoot, Nicole went for a soft relaxed style wispy curls and interesting details. I love the little braid snuck into the back.
I’ve been very very fortunate to work with Lauren from Magnolia Grove Flowers a few times now. This flower crown was so sweet, it almost gave me a toothache. Wouldn’t you agree!
The one wedding pro I hadn’t yet worked with was Stacey Schramm Photography. Stacey organised this whole affair, and I’m so pleased she found me to be part of it. What a delightful person, and fantastic photographer.
