Spring is an absolutely stunning time of year to get married in Queenstown, especially if you want to take advantage of the beautiful views and take a helicopter trip to get some amazing photos! You still get photos with snow capped mountains in the background but it's just a little bit warmer making it easier to deal with! 😁
I had the pleasure of doing Natalie's and her two bridesmaids makeup at the end of October 2015 for her spring wedding in Queenstown. I created this look using all M.A.C Cosmetics, on the eyes I've used the colours Kid, Texture and Embark and Lingering pencil in the brows.
For the contour I've used the blush colour Harmony and for the cheeks I've used Modern Mandarin. For the lips we just used Subculture lip pencil with a clear gloss, as Natalie didn't feel comfortable wearing lipstick so this was a great alternative to still add some colour to the lips.
For the lashes I've used individuals and double stacked them in the out corners to give them a fuller look.
For the bridesmaids we created a similar look using the same colours on the eyes and face as all the girls had very similar skin tones. This makeup look worked perfectly with the blush coloured bridesmaid dresses and the beautiful flowers.
I absolutely loved working with Natalie and this makeup look is definitely one of my favourites. It's always so rewarding when brides leave you lovely feedback like Natalie did. 😇
"A very talented young lady! I changed makeup artists last minute for my wedding and I am 100% glad I did. I got exactly what I wanted. I can't recommend Genevieve enough. Thanks again"

I'm so excited to introduce to you the newest addition to EVE Makeup Artistry. The extremely talented, Philippa Walker!
As soon as I met Danielle & Renae, I knew there was something special about these two. They were both so welcoming, relaxed and open to chat to me about their journey.
Even before I was a full time makeup artist, the M.A.C Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish highlighter in the shade "Soft & Gentle" was always my holy grail highlighter. It's always been the one product that when I pull it out of my kit, so many clients say "I have that one too". With out a doubt it's such a beautiful product and extremely easy to work with.

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.
