When Beach meets Glamour

From the moment I met with Rachael to discuss her bridal make up, she had a clear idea of the type of look she wanted and I have to say it suited her perfectly!

Rachael wore a lace gown by Pronovias and the always stunning Swarovski jewellery pieces to complement this beautiful look. Rachael's look radiated pure elegance but with a touch of hollywood glamour. The delicate ivory lace fabric of Rachael's Pronovias gown and her fair, flawless skin, worked beautifully against the vibrant bouquets and more dramatic eye, vibrant lip detail and vintage look hair-up style. 

If you are a bride to be that loves the glam vintage look but wants to have that dream beach wedding then please have the confidence in knowing that the two combined can work!

I feel however that it is also vitally important that you "feel like you" on your special day. My advice is make sure you feel like YOU and feel confident in that particular look and style especially if you are considering having a more glam look. This is where a make up trial is so important prior to the big day to ensure you and the make up artist are on the same page.  

For any of you that know this beautiful Bride, I think you will agree with me that this look was indeed Rachael through and through. Perfection. 

Some of the beautiful images you see here of Rachael, Andy and her Bridesmaids were captured by the talented Montana Wilson Photography and taken at Palm Beach on the Northern Beaches of Sydney.

I created a gentle contour using Benefits contour palette and used MAC's blush in Peaches followed by MAC'S lightscapade highlighting powder on the cheekbones. 

For the rest of Rachael's make up look, I used Arbonne's Primer, MAC Studio fix foundation and powder, MAC eyeshadow in Shroom and Max Factors liquid eyeliner. Elyure False lashes (Katy Perry edition) were applied to create volume and depth and immediately made this beautiful brides eyes pop! We then applied the creme d'la creme of lipsticks NARS Lipstick in Shanghai Express. This is a fabulous lipstick and very durable! Highly recommended!


Thank you Rachael for having me be part of your special day. Hx
