Happily Ever After

I finally got my hands on some pictures from Haley’s wedding. The wedding took place on a beautiful fall day – and the bride rivalled the breathtaking views from the Chateau Vaudreuil. She looked absolutely stunning and her makeup turned out beautifully.

My Best Friend’s Wedding – A Sneak Peek!

One of my best friend’s Haley, got married a few weeks ago – and I was lucky enough to do makeup for a few of her events, including her Bridal Shower/Bachelorette and Wedding. She of course looked stunning, and I of course did not take any pictures (insert sad face – what was I thinking?).

I am patiently waiting for her photographers to add pictures from the big day – and check their site almost daily, but they are teasing me by only posting a few pictures at a time. Therefore, until I get my hands on more, here are a few teaser pictures. Enjoy!

Fall Inspired Makeup

Everyone knows – I absolutely love fall. From the soy pumpkin spiced lattes at Starbucks, to butternut squash soup to of course, the leaves changing colours (probably my favourite). What I also love about autumn, is the inspiration that I get from this season – especially when it comes to makeup. This inspiration is what I called upon to create this simple yet glamorous look for a friend of mine, for the day of her Ladies Sangeet (a Punjabi tradition to celebrate a bride, usually a week before her wedding). With her wedding being right around the corner, she wanted to look pretty and put together – without any over the top drama.

Fall Inspired Makeup

I used a simple combo of Mac eyeshadows to create this eye look, including: Arena (a shimmery golden peach), Coppering (an orange copper), Expensive Pink (pink with duochrome) and Folie (reddish-plum brown). All these colours paired together beautifully – and reminded me of the rich golds, oranges and pinks of Autumn – all without looking too red and orange. A perfect combo in my books! All these eyeshadows were brought together with Mac Blacktrack gel eyeliner and QUO false lashes – and tada! An amazingly beautiful glamorous look – without being too over the top or cakey.

I’m back!

I realize that I’ve been completely MIA from blogging for, ummmm, almost a year (insert blushing face). Lately, I’ve been feeling the need of a creative outlet. Being overwhelmed by every day life, I’ve been feeling a little stuck in a rut – and then this week it dawned on me, maybe the best way to fix this ‘problem’ is to start blogging about one of my passions again.

I’m going to keep a realistic timeline, and hopefully post once or twice a week. I plan on posting about makeup products that I’ve been loving, make up looks that I create on others (need to start documenting again!), jewellery & fashion, and of course occasionally photographs that I take with my iPhone.

I absolutely love reading other fashion & makeup blogs – and hope that others will feel the same about the continuation of this one!
