Sometimes, less IS more…

We often think that we need to pile on the makeup when attending functions as a friend’s wedding or engagement – but that couldn’t in fact be further from the truth. Instead of caking ones face with makeup and doing a heavy smokey eye (which I will never deny that I love) – sometimes, it’s classic to go for a understated look that is sexy, beautiful and put together.
The best part about makeup is that it has the ability to accentuate anyone’s best features – playing with light to camouflage any imperfections. So when going for a natural – yet sophisticated look – choose one feature to play up, using a neutral palette to bring the look together. The results are always stunningly beautiful!



The Big Night!

What’s the best thing about a big Indian wedding? Well, of course all the beautiful outfits – and with that array of outfits comes a change in makeup! Indian brides are known to have gorgeous and intricate outfits that are heavy in the department of embroidery and sequins. With such heavily detailed outfits, a brides makeup has to match – other wise she will look completely washed out. Convincing Sharina that a heavier eye would be more complementary wasn’t that difficult – and the results were absolutely gorgeous!




The Big Day!

Fall is my absolute favourite season… After all, what’s not to love? The leaves are changing colours, giving everything a stunning glow – which is so inspiring. All the different hues coming from the trees and sky lead to numerous creative ideas and of course countless makeup looks!

Since Autumn is such a beautiful time, in my opinion it’s the best time for a wedding – especially on a lovely Fall day! Clearly Sharina agrees with me – and was super lucky to have amazing weather on her big day. Sharina is all about looking natural, and wanted to look just that on her wedding day. She specifically asked for a look that didn’t make her look too overdone, but like her self – well, a glamazon bridal version of herself. I agreed, and used the golden hues of Fall as an inspiration for her morning wedding ceremony!

**Sharina is in the process of getting ready in these pictures – her hair hasn’t been done, nor is she wearing her jewellery which will all come together in making her look like a traditional Indian bride.
