Steph's wedding was my last makeup job in Auckland before I moved to Queenstown. Steph was an amazing bride to work with and she was so organised! We did a trial before the wedding for both Steph, her Mum and one of her bridesmaids to ensure we really nailed the look she was wanting for the day.
Steph had collated a great selection of makeup inspiration photos in her Pinterest album for the style of makeup she was after to suit the style of her wedding. The makeup looks she was wanting for the whole bridal party was soft and natural as her bridesmaids dresses and flower arrangements were all pastel colours.
For the bridesmaids I used warm tones on the eyes with a touch of shimmer in the inner corners to really make the girls eyes pop. I used a M.A.C Cosmetics mineralised lipstick for the lips to get the look natural and soft. For Steph's makeup we took a similar approach but used warm browns with a touch of gold on the eyes. For her lips I used the popular M.A.C Cosmetics lipstick "Syrup" with the lip pencil "Subculture" underneath.
The girls all looked absolutely stunning and once the whole look was together with hair, dresses and flowers it was the perfect style for a summer wedding.
Below is the message I received from Steph after her wedding day 😊
"OMG! Thank you so very much G for the amazing make up you did on myself, my bridesmaids and my mother. I could not stop looking at myself hehe and the make up was perfect up untill I went to bed at 2am! Having the powder and lipstick was a HUGE help!
Thank you for all the trials, thank you for taking in and listening to the type of style I had thought about. You made getting our make up done so fun and positive! And not awkward at all! You blended in so well to our bridal team and had some laughs with us!
You are an amazing person and Queenstown are lucky to be getting you!"
