Grace requested a natural yet flawless coverage on her face, incorporating soft tones on her cheeks and paying special attention to emphasizing her eyes.


Grace’s eyes were a stunning shade of blue, which lends themselves perfectly to the natural shades of brown/bronze. In order to make them appear more significant I chose to use the Kaizen coral shimmer all over the mobile lid – this colour is one of my favourites, as it really opens up the eye, yet stays warm. In order to accentuate her contour I used a couple of different chocolate shades, one by Kaizen and the other by M.A.C “espresso” (another favourite).


To highlight the inner corner of her eye I used Napolean #6 (it is now called something different). To give the eyes the prominence Grace was after I used the “eclipse gel liner” from Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics, this gel liner is waterproof and definitely lasts.

To achieve Grace’s flawless complexion I used the Element2 Airbrush in CB03/04. I also used the Element2 bronzer matte in order to contour and shape her face, thus defining her cheekbones. As well as the Element2 for contouring I used the Youngblood Mineral Radience “Sundance” to further contour and highlight the face.


On her lips we chose Youngblood lip liner in “pout” and lipstick in “sorbet”.

To complete her look I finished with Youngblood Mineral Hi Definition Powder “clear” – this softens the look and makes you camera ready, without adding extra product.


Grace wore her wedding makeup the entire evening and into the next day and she was kind enough to send me some photos of her “Drown the Dress” Photo Shoot – she still looks stunning!!!
