Shan & Glyn’s Queensland Wedding – A Sneak Peak

Before I officially became a freelance makeup artist I worked for a couple of years on fancy yachts for very rich people. On the first boat I joined I met Shannon and we became instant friends with a shared love of raucous times, food, hysterical laughing and travel. Shan and her now husband Glyn got married last week on the Gold Coast, Australia and I flew over to attend and also do Shan’s bridal party makeup.

We didn’t get a chance to do a trial so we winged it on the day. Not normally an approach I’d take with a bride but I’d done Shan’s makeup numerous times before. She went for a lilac-y, taupe-y smokey eye to make her green eyes really shine.

Picture hilly dense rain forest and streams and you’ll get the picture and a million miles away from the high rises and golden beaches of the coast. The ceremony was outside next to a pretty creek on a clearing in the forest.
