on saturday, james & i will be celebrating ONE YEAR of being MARRIED. just crazy, i know! it’s going to be a chill weekend spent mostly in town and at a hotel i’m dying to stay at. so excited to celebrate with my best friend :)


well it’s currently wedding season in my town. we’ve been invited to 8 weddings/receptions this year from june-november! from september to november we have 4 weddings. i am beyond thrilled because i looooooove going to weddings.


so in honour of all these future weddings and my own anniversary around the corner, i thought i’d share my wedding make-up.


i did my own make-up because i only ever do my own make-up. i worked for clinique & various other cosmetic lines in the past and i absolutely love doing make-up. because my life is so crazy i don’t advertise that i work in that arena but when it comes down to it, i actually really love to do it (just barely have the time to!) i’ve been fortunate to work on insanely beautiful beautiful brides in the past (chelsea, mandy, emy, tiffany & catrina!)

my favourite bridal look will always be a smokey eye and light lip. that’s what i do on most brides and it’s what i did on myself.


here’s what i used to get my look:


1. la base pro primer (lancome)

2. teint idole ultra 24h foundation (lancome)

3. mineralize concealer (mac)

4. mineralize skinfinish natural powder (mac)

5. multiple duo blush/bronzer (nars)

tip- prep your skin! you want to start on a clean palette. on special occasions, i always use face primer to make my foundation last. 



1. eyeshadow primer potion (urban decay)

2. naked 1 & 2 eyeshadow palette (urban decay)

3. 24/7 glide-on eye pencil (urban decay)

4. fake lashes #34 (mac)

5. hypnose waterpoof mascara (lancome)

tip- always, always, always wear fake eye lashes on your wedding day. they’ll make your eyes pop in your pictures!


1. prep & prime lip (mac)

2. subculture lip pencil (mac)

3. coral bliss lipstick (mac)

4. fake lashes #34 (mac)

tip- prime the lips then cover your entire lip in liner before you apply your lipstick. this will help your lipstick stay on much longer!


hope you found this helpful!
