RR-198

This years Robyn Roberts Bridal Wear shoot took place at the lovely Langerwatcht wedding venue. The makeup brief was ‘fresh and peachy’ therefore I focused on creating a clean and simply elegant look for the gorgeous model Gizelle. These stunning dresses are part of the Robyn Roberts spring collection for 2014, visit http://www.robynroberts.co.za/. Photography by Lauren Kriedemann, visit: http://www.laurenk.co.za/

Ombre-styled shoot

For this styled shoot the brief called for light and natural bridal makeup with hues of pink on the lips and the apples of the cheek. The look and feel of the shoot was natural, feminine and romantic. Photography by Lauren Kriedemann, http://www.laurenk.co.za/

Tarin

Tarin was one of my transformation brides, as she never wears makeup. She was wonderful to work with, as she trusted my judgment as to what would suit her. The makeup I did for Tarin’s big day emphasized her features beautifully and in Tarin’s words brought out her “gorgeousness”. She looked striking!

Matthew & Tessa-277 (2)

Tessa

Tessa has the most striking blue eyes! I used bronze tones of eyeshadow to enhance these gorgeous features of hers. For her lips I used a natural pink shade of lipstick called “Supreme Style” by Mac, and a soft peachy-pink blush on her cheeks to complement her peaches and cream complexion.

Nina

Nina has a beautiful olive complexion and striking brown eyes. I used silvery tones of eyeshadow and blended this into deep brown hues to keep the emphasis on her eyes.  For her cheeks I used a soft pink blush and completed the look with a lovely nude lip and gloss to keep the look soft and understated.

Lalena

Lalena was a gorgeous bride to work with. She has such lovely bone structure. For her makeup I placed emphasis on her striking hazelnut brown eyes. I used bronze and brown shades to enhance her eye colour and extended the eyeshadow outwards to echo the shape of her eyes. For her lips and cheeks I used a soft natural peachy-pink colour keeping the look feminine and soft. Beautiful photography by Dear Heart, visit:  http://www.dearheartphotos.com/
