Blue Veins

Blue Veins is the name of the small project the photographer named.  Naomi Craigs is a new young local photographer and loves portrait style.  An amazing photographer with great potential and I look forward to seeing more of her work and working together again in the future.

Naomi wanted a cold concept/makeup design, so most the time colours like black, white, blue and purple can give off that sort of feel.  With so much I could do with my freedom I was given, I ended up coming up with a dark set of eyes with blue and a slight tint of glitter, some strong contouring and a purple lip.

Enough talking, here are some photos to share with you all.

My Brother's Wedding 05/05/2012

Finally getting around to sharing some intimate photos from my brother's and sister-in-law's family wedding.  We were all worried about the weather as May is in the middle of Winter and normally in Sunny Perth we're pouring and windy during that time of the month.  However the day was beautiful with not blinding sun and no rain and wind until late that night.  A perfect cool day for a lovely quiet wedding for a perfect couple.  After a long journey of 10years together, they have finally tied the knot and began their new phrase in their life as Husband and Wife.

Being a makeup artist I was definitely very happy to be able to do my sister-in-law's hair and makeup.  She liked it simple as she's not a girl who wears makeup on a daily basis and even so it was only tinted moisturiser normally.

She wanted natural yet pretty makeup, she want to still be her in the end and being me I gave her the best I could.  Airbrushed Foundation with my Temptu foundation as her base.  A flawless base for her wonderful skin and lasting all day and night with very little to no touch up.  Eyelashes were probably the weirdest thing for her that day, I mean she wearing them for the first time after all.

For hair it was a simple low bun/chignon with a simple flower clip.  nothing complicated and nothing that required too much maintenance.  Actually it didn't need any touching up either.  It stayed in the whole day through out the photo shoot out on location and through the reception that night.

All photos are rightfully the Photographer!

Just a bit of Instagram and photos in my life...

Today is probably the first Sunday in a long while that is sort of relaxing for me.  Have a wonderful brunch catch up with two of my favourite girlfriends.

Coffee and a good breakfast meal around 11am was a quick fit for the day.
