Whimsical eco-ethical bridal shoot in the Southern Highlands

As a passionate eco-ethical makeup artist I love it when I get to work with others who have similar ethics.

Amazing Dinah from Pearl Button Bridal who often uses vintage laces for her stunning wedding dresses – and never uses anything not ethically made was the bridal designer for this shoot.

Alison Kennon Botanical design who forages for most of her florals and only uses flowers in season and those grown locally – so small green footprint was our florist.

We shot the photos in one of the renovated repurposed railway carriages on Redleaf farm which is a working farm – but they are open to small weddings – yay! They are very much paddock to plate in their approach – keeping the miles short.

Catherine Worsley Photography who works in film not digitally – which means more thought has to go into each and every shot – more love than random shooting.

Two beautiful models – one pale as the fallen snow and one with a chocolatey beauty.


Arlington Milne Winter 2020 fashion shoot in the Southern Highlands

One of my favourite jobs is doing makeup for fashion shoots – truly – isn’t this every makeup artist’s dream?

I love it even more when I adore the fashion and it is shot in the Southern Highlands of NSW!

Arlington Milne’s clothing is gorgeous – it is designed here in Australia by a very talented woman.

The photos were taken on the coldest autumn day just outside of Burrawang on a beautiful farm which we would have loved a lot more if it weren’t so cold – Megan our model was a champion – she stayed stoic throughout the shoot and looked stunning all day.


Beautiful skin solutions

We all want beautiful skin no matter how old we are. Luminous taut smooth skin is what we all ideally love to see in the mirror every day – from the top of our head to the tips of our toes.

Pimples, pigmentation and wrinkles and other nasty signs that our skins are not in perfect health can be fixed, but unfortunately not through using one cream, or one lotion or going on one skin-clearing diet. Fixing our skins takes time and effort – and most of it happens from within.

In six weeks you can turn your skin around using the following tips – I know they all work – I have 100s of brides who can vote for it – they have all had beautiful skin consultations with me and their skins glow on their wedding day!

The following links are to subjects I cover with my brides to achieve flawless skin – hope that they help you too!
