Nicole and Ians April Wedding

NicoleWedding9-a

 

A few months ago we have the pleasure of glamming up Nicole on her Wedding Date. We had been referred to us by our friend and Wedding Collegue Amanda Coldicutt Photography. When we met Nicole we instantly clicked as we had a mutual love of working out, dogs and sharing our stories. On her Wedding date the team of Carmen, Cathy, Tara and Tia went out to Langley to glam everyone up. Stefanie Fournier Photography was Nicoles photographer for the day and she took so many amazing photos! Here are a few photos from Nicole and Ians Love Wedding =)

Meagan and Justins Summer 2015 Wedding

Meagan+JustinEngagement0002

I had the pleasure of meeting Meagan a few years ago for her sister Krystals wedding in Abbotsford.  Meagan had remembered me and booked me for her Summer 2015 Wedding. Meagan is your fun, bubbly, funny and very professional business owner.  Did I mentioned she is the Principle Owner of Sea to Sky Weddings and Events ? We love connecting with other wedding vendors in the City so this was perfect for everyone.  Meagan had chosen to do her makeup trial on the same day as her engagement shoot with Fortune Hill Photography and we couldn’t be more happier with the pictures.  Vanessa captured Meagan and Justin in Stanley Park and the pictures looked amazing.  On the morning of the wedding we got Meagan and her Bridal party makeup ready at the Riverrock while her ceremony and reception ended up being at the Hycroft Mansion ( Gorgeous Venue ).  Here are a few sneak peeks of their wedding and we look forward to working with Sea to Sky Weddings and Events in the next Wedding Season!

Today marks the first day of Winter and  3 more days before Christmas.  We wanted to wrap up our year with one of our favourite Weddings.  Alex and Brians Fall/Halloween Wedding a few months back.  We had the pleasure of traveling to Fraser River Lodge in Agassiz on October 31st to doll up Alex and her Bridal Party.  They were all so fantastic and we are so excited  to see Alex and Brians photos from Hayley Rae Photography =).  Everyone was so beautiful and they all looked amazing in their Royal Blue Dresses.  It was definately a Halloween to remember.   We  want to wish Alex and Brian a life time full of happiness and can’t wait to see them again in New Year!

My Top 5 Beauty Products of 2015

wakeup

Its that time of Year again for those yearly Beauty Reviews, I gotta admit I tried so many products this year that my place is a hoarders dream! haha.  If anyone is looking for some beauty products  let me know and I’ll be happy to let you browse and of course take some home! =) My house literally has stuff in every room that Ive been keeping around.

 

  1. First lets start with Skin Care!,  As you might of read in my previous post a few months ago, I had stopped by Avante Laser in Burnaby in the Summer for a Hydrafacial.  These are like the ” carpet cleaning” for the skin as Sandi says.  I loved it when she did mine and now speaking of which I am overdue for one soon.  If you have a special event wether it be your wedding or a Holiday Party I strongly suggest getting a Hydrafacial done a week before to make sure you are looking on point!

2. My 2nd favourite product of 2015 has to be Kat Von D Liquid Lipsticks.  Yes there are so many brands that have “long lasting” lip sticks but Kat Von Ds in my opinion is one of the best.  They are drying, non sticking and lasts all day.  I love my long wearing lipsticks as they are usually very pigmented, lasts all day and require mininum touch ups.  Kat Von D long wear lipsticks also come in many different colours from nude to extremely bold =).  For they price they are a must for all Season Wear

3) Oribe ( Or-Bay, O-Ree-Bay, Orb) Whatever you call it this is the Lexus of the Hair World. A Luxury brand ( hefty price tag but worth it) that delivers amazing results with their products.  I am one of the biggest fans of the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, it gives my hair the Ooomph in a can. Spray at the roots and it gives you the volume and texture you are looking for. There are a few ” volume root” sprays in the market but this one knocks it out of the park by far. A little bit goes a long way too!  I’m addicted to this stuff and this is a must for Boudoir/ Messy Bedroom hair as well;)

4) This year was the Year of Mink Lashes for me, I have always been a false lashes kind of gal but never tried Mink Lashes. There are so many different brand of Mink Lashes however the one I started using on Brides and for personal use  was Merlot Lash Bar.  They are ultra light, super fluffy and so easy to apply.  I love how they have 3 Collections ( just like wine), White, Reds and the Bubbly Collection.  My all time favourite pair has got to be Sweet Red and Pinot Noir although I would love to try the Rose from the Bubbly Collection next time!

5) Lastly my favourite product of 2015 has got to be Deodorant Cream from Living Simple.  At first when I got this I knew it was going to be something I had to get used to. It  is a cream that you  rub under your arms instead of a anti persperiant/ deodorant stick.  A little bit goes along way and it smells oh so  good!.  Forget about the artificial ” Artic Air ” or “Rose Blossom” scents you regular deodorant has, Living Simple has Natural Scents from Essential Oils that make it smell wonderful. I have been a fan of the ” Peppermint Tea Tree Oil” which is one of their best sellers.

Hope that you enjoyed this! Which products were you top 5 this year? did they make this list as well?

Pro Tip- How to Look Younger and Reduce Shine with No Powder

nano

ProTip Mondays: Feeling shiny or looking too much like a disco ball? Apply a little bit of Nanoblur with a sponge on your t zone area to reduce shine.  I love this as a alternative to powder or blotting papers.  Nanoblur can also be used underneath makeup to minimize pores and fine lines, Double Win =)  You can purchase this at Shoppers Drug Mart.  A little bit goes a long way and I love how you can use it before AND  after makeup! Woo hoo!  This is a must have for Brides during the Hot Summer Season.  I recommend everyone carry this in their makeup/touch up bag for those days where you want some extra love 😉

 

 

Dorothy and Bens Disney Themed Wedding

 

dorothy-benjamin-wedding-vancouver-84

I had the chance to meet Dorothy and Ben a few years ago as Ben is actually a amazing photographer in town. His work can be seen here  We have worked several photo shoots together and he is always great company to be around. Not only is he amazing at what he does, he is always calm, professional and very kind.   I actually met Dorothy while working with Ben, she was assisting him at the day but at the time they were just friends.   A year or so had past and I found they they were engaged ( yay!), Dorothy had approached me to do her makeup and hair for her big day and I felt very honoured.  The wedding was a Disney Themed ( super cute) and I was very lucky to be a part of their big day!.  Noyo Creative took these amazing photos and we are so lucky to the chance to have them featured on our blog!  Be sure to check out the same day edit by Life Studios here

How to hide the Thanksgiving/Holiday pounds with Contouring

contour

We all get those days, weeks and for me months!.  Once Fall/Winter  comes around we are bundled up in our jackets trying to hide our Turkey Dinners  and our delicous Holiday Treats.  One of the must haves in my makeup bag is contour products to make it look like I did not actually put on the “Holiday 10lbs” haha.  Here are my top 3  contour products I’m liking for this Holiday Season.

 

kevynKevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder. I have used this product for years and its once of the best.  It blends ever so smoothly and goes on like a dream.  It love how the colour is not to warm so the ” contour” shadow you are making doesn’t look “orange ” or ” blotchy”.  Use with a sculpting brush and a little goes a long way :)

 

rcma

 

RCMA.  A professional brand that is Vegan ( woohoo) with amazing products for the professional world.  I have a few of the RCMA cream foundations and I am so happy I tried RCMA.  With their products they are reasonably price and do its job plus more.  When I found out about this Shading wheel I was amazed as its a All in One  product for  just about every skin tone.  No need to buy different products when you can mix your own personal contour! =)

 

mufe

Makeup Forever. One of the all time favourite Brands.  I love all their products because they are pigmented, durable and best of all easy to access ( Thank you Sephora!)  The Makeup Forever Sculpting Powder is 2 in 1 Highlight and Contour.  It comes in 4 shades ( I love shade # 2).  Use with the Makeup Forever Duo Blush/Contour Brush and Voila! Contour for Days =).

Anna and Teejays Garden Wedding

Last month I had the honour of styling Anna for her intimate wedding in Queens Park in New Westminister.  Anna and I always had so much fun during our time together.  We had custom blended hair extensions for her as she wanted to look like a major bombshell for her big day.  I love it when brides requests smokey eyes, big hair and lots of lashes. We also used custom blended lashes on her from Sasha Lashes (double stacked to be exact).  Anna looked absolutely stunning on her big day and we were so happy to be a part of it.   Katie Lauren Photography did such an amazing job with her photos and we can’t wait to see these ladies in the near future.  Congrats to Anna and Teejay and we wish them both all the happiness in the world

Elise and Alexs Granville Island Wedding

elisewed3a

Last month we were very lucky to be the Beauty Team  of Elise and Alexs Wedding.  It was a wedding held at  Granville Island ( very unique and intimate!).  We got the the ladies ready at the Granville Island Hotel bright and hotel in the morning while Geoff Lister took some behind the scenes shots.  Elise was one of the Dream Brides, super organized and oh-so- down to earth.  Not only is she super gorgeous on the outside she is has a heart of Gold.  Elise and I had seen each other 2 times prior the wedding for her hair and makeup trials and we always shared great laughs, on the day of her wedding she was so calm and and super excited.  We got all the ladies ready in 3.5 hours and they all looked absolutely stunning.  The makeup and hair were different amongst each other but still some what uniformed.   Thank you for having us be a part of your big day and we wish you and Alex a life time of happiness and joy <3 =)
