Asian Eyes – Edmonton Asian Makeup Artist

Asian eyes can be quite challenging when it comes to makeup, especially when doing a smokey eye on mono lids.  

Most are afraid to use too much dark eyeshadow or too much eyeliner because it will make your eyes look even smaller.  

But if done right, a dark smokey eye can look super sexy & sultry and definitely enhance the shape of Asian eyes.👌

Fall Bride – Edmonton Wedding Makeup Artist 

My last wedding of the year 😕. That means winter is slowly creeping up on us.  Nooooo!!!  Although it’s hibernation mode very soon here for us Albertans,  I highly suggest any 2017 brides to book me, your wedding makeup artist ASAP because time and space is limited because remember, there are only 4 weekends in a month!! 🤔😉😀

This weekend’s bride was one of my favs. She is already so naturally beautiful that all we had to do was go for a soft, glowy, romantic look.  The end result was so pretty!!  Perfect bridal look for someone who doesn’t want to look too done up but just enough to look good in photos.👌


I also had the pleasure of doing the bride’s friends’ makeup as well and here I did my classic smokey eye to compliment dark brown eyes and a pink blush & lip combo to top it off.  Sexy sexy!! 

For Lisa we went for a brown smokey eye and red lip combo.  Smoke show mamma!!! This is always a good look for blondes. 👍🏼 (this was before hair was done)

I had the pleasure of doing bridal/bridesmaid makeup for this beautiful mother daughter duo last month.  Mother and daughter?!! More like sisters to me!  Bombshells! 😍😍



A Glamorous Indian Wedding – Edmonton Wedding Makeup Artist

Better late than never!  I’ve been extremely busy lately but here is my beautiful Indian bride from last month.  The first wedding of the year for me!  

Everything turned out perfect- even more so than the bridal trial we had prior.    She looked soooo beautiful!!

Indian bridal makeup is much more dramatic and bold than your average bride: dark eyes, heavy contour and red lips.  Together, all the colours just pop – they’re intense and so beautiful that it always always captures soooo beautifully on camera/film.  I love doing Indian weddings!!! ❤️

  
 

Bridal Trial – Edmonton Wedding Makeup Artist

  
My beautiful soon to be Bollywood bride!! Indian weddings are so elaborate and full of beautiful colours and details…I absolutely love it!  My bride-to-be wanted dramatic eyes and a red lip, my kind of girl!!  We did not do any false lashes here at the trial (because she had errands to run right after) BUT we will be adding dramatic false lashes on the day of the wedding which will complete the whole look that much more.  I can’t wait!!!  See you soon gorgeous!!

Wedding Day – Edmonton Wedding Makeup Artist

Another bright and early wedding day!  5am wakeup call! 😨😨  I was running on 2 hours of sleep; I couldn’t sleep the night before for some reason and it wasn’t even MY wedding!!! Lol 😂😂
As much as I would love to show up straight out of bed in my pjs without brushing my teeth or putting on makeup, I can’t do that to my brides! Or to the public!! 😮 So I still try to look as cute as my 5am self will let me.  Gotta look presentable for my girls!! 👍👌 😆

Today’s bride does not wear makeup at all so she wanted very natural looking makeup for her wedding.  We came up with a romantic and soft, super pretty bridal look!

For the maid of honor, I did a soft medium smokey eye using MAC’s ‘mythology’ eyeshadow with a light handed black eyeshadow to smoke out the outer corners.  How smokin’ is she!! 🔥🔥😍

Before & After – Edmonton Boudoir Makeup & Hair Styling

Another before & after of my beautiful client!

Hair & Makeup by me.

I filled in her brows just a bit to add shape and to frame her eyes better.  She opted for no false lashes; I did a light smokey eye with lots of eyeliner to make her eyes pop.  Minimal blush because her cheeks are already naturally rosey.  Fresh faced and oh so pretty!

Beach Wedding Beauty Inspiration – Loverly and lilylelymakeup

My friends at lover.ly sent some beautiful wedding dresses for me to choose and create beauty inspiration for and here is my pick!
Lover.ly is like a one stop wedding shop.  You know how brides carry a binder or wedding planner book  for inspiration and planning?  You can now do it all online on lover.ly!  Everything you need to plan your wedding.  I know what I’ll be using when my time comes 😀
I’m not married.  Never been but if I ever, I’m all about the destination weddings.  I mean, I’ve already been planning my imaginary beach wedding for most of my adult life!  Just check out my pinterest, I have a whole board on “My Future Beach Wedding’!  It’ll happen one day damnit, IT WILL!!!!!!!!!!!! #endrantbridewannabezilla hahhaahha
I chose this simple yet elegant and sexy wedding dress for the perfect beach wedding.  (ahem mine will be in Varadero, Cuba in case you’re wondering)  Who says you can’t wear a fancy elegant full length wedding dress on the sandy beach?  I’d skip all jewlery except maybe some diamond stud earrings.  No necklace, no bracelets, nada.  Afterall, you don’t want tan lines on your neck or wrists.  Plus, it’ll probably be so hot that any jewlery would probably just irritate the crap out of me (or you.)  The best part – no need for 4+ inch heels that’ll dig into and hurt your feet.  Barefoot or with bling’ed out flip flops, either will work with this strapless beauty of a dress.  🙂

For makeup, I would focus more on that sexy JLo glowy bronzey skin.  I’d be careful not to get too tanned or worst, sunburnt before the wedding day so be careful ladies!  Limit the tanning by the pool/beach.  Or wear a hat and sunblock!  That luminous glowy skin can be achieved by using bronzer and a great highlighter.  Paired with a medium smokey eye using neutral color eyeshadows and then topped off with a pinky-nude lipgloss and we are good to go!  For hair, I think loose beachy waves would look best.  But if it’s too hot I would pull the loose curls to the side and go for that messy low side bun or ponytail look.  Casual yet chic and beautiful for my I mean your beach wedding!  😀
