Christie and Jeff had the most amazing location out in West Auckland for their wedding. Woodhill Forest made for some of the most beautiful wedding photos I have seen. Photographed by the incredibly talented Frank and Peggy, I am so glad I got to be a part of this day.
Christie, being as stunning as she is, made my job rather easy. We went for quite a dark smokey eye using Bobbi Brown Bronze Sugar cream eyeshadow as a base with Allspice sparkle pressed over the top. Blonde eyeshadow blended into her crease with black gel liner smudged up into the shadow on the lid. A defined black liquid liner and a whole lot of Too Faced Better Than Sex Waterproof mascara to coat her amazing long lashes. I filled in her brows with Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow in dark brown to frame the dark smokey eye. We kept the cheeks and lips neutral with Bobbi Brown Nectar blush with Bronze Shimmerbrick on the cheeks and Bobbi Brown Brownie Pink lip colour on the lips.
The bridesmaids, equally as stunning, had a very similar look. I used bronzes and browns for a slightly softer smokey look than Christies, but dark enough to match the deep navy dresses they wore. Again, keeping the cheeks and lips to a brownie pink and keeping the skin fresh and glowing.
So far this has been one of my favourite weddings of the season. The girls were an absolute pleasure to work with and I loved everything about this wedding, from the location, to the dress, to the flowers. Thank you Christie for letting me be a part of your special day.
