Natalie & Lee | 13th June 2015 | The Surprise Wedding

Last month I had the pleasure of doing the Bridal make up for Natalie and her Mum. The Bride was also celebrating her 30th Birthday on 13th June and had invited numerous friends and family to attend her party at the iconic Doltone House in Sydney that evening to celebrate; unknowing to everyone that she and her fiancé were actually getting married!!

The Bride wore her Mum's very own vintage wedding dress and accessorised with beautiful pastel coloured blooms and the couple married in the sunshine of Bradford Park in North Sydney. 

I was so excited when I first spoke to Nat about her surprise wedding plans and this wedding had style written all over it! from the dress and flowers to the locations chosen; Nat's vintage style themed wedding suited her perfectly and I have loved seeing how all her ideas and our chats about her wedding make up style and colours all came together on the big day.

Nat's bridal make up look was created using a variety of make up by Younique including the Touch pressed foundation and powder, lipstain in Shy (and yes it stays put!) I decided to leave the lips matte and not apply a clear gloss to give a more true vintage finish and finally their 3D fibre lash mascara to give the lashes that wow factor!

To highlight and contour I used Benefits Hoola contour powder, MAC powder blush in Fleur Power and Lightscape highlighting powder on the cheek and brow bones, MAC waterproof liquid eyeliner to create a gentle but defined winged eye look and finally; MAC's brow pencil in Fling brished through the brows gently.

Eye colours created and blended using MAC eye palette, Shroom, woodwinked and Painterly pot paint as a base. Keeping the eye colours neural and soft helped balance the rest of the look without it looking to OTT! As you will agree i'm sure; Nat has stunning eyes and i wanted to ensure we made them stand out as much as possible. 

I absolutely loved the finished look and can definitely say that the products used were incredible! I will most certainly be using them again for my future make up creations. For information on how to get hold of these products see credits and links below.
