Barefaced Beauty.

A master of barefaced beauty and natural radiance, we love Sydney based Hayley Wilson for makeup looks reminiscent of the runway. Think Spring 2017, where subtle adornment reigned and beauty looks were inspired by stardust...barely there bases accented with pearlescent highlights, where luminous skin in dewy finishes were matched with creamy eyeshadows and shimmering lips.

With her trademark tousled waves, brushed out brows, barely-there bases and champagne hues swept over eyelids and cheekbones, Hayley is one of our favorites for luminous, effortless bridal makeup. More details on her website.

Highlights This Week

This week we’re dreaming a song of fire and ice with Sydney based jewellery co elvis et moi, and headpiece queen Viktoria Novak (above).

While Melbourne based florist The Flower Dispensary has our focus firmly fixed on their ornate floral arch, and Sydney based celebrant Thomas J Lahoud gave us his no nonsense advice to making your ceremony all your own.

Sydney based fine jeweller Grew & Co continued the royal theme with this stunning setting (above), and Melbourne based make-up artist Jessica Whitelock took us back to a stunning dawn spent with Samara Weaving on the glistening shores of Byron Bay (below).

We’re reminded of the luxury of the present moment with the rare laces and silks of Aimee-Cherie Intimates and the opulent onyx candles of Cocolux Australia.

And finally, we’re dreaming of summer escapes and seaside soirees on Sydney’s northern beaches at the picturesque Jonahs, where not so long ago we created this oceanic tablescape for the most well-shod online influencers in Australia for the Samsung Summer Soiree.

Editorial Edge

We sure love a multi-disciplinarian! Inspired by the work of Sydney based Hair & Make Up Artist Thanh Vo.

Plus as a sought-after hairdresser you can book two professionals in one! To view the portfolio of Thanh Vo and to enquire about working together see here.

Highlights This Week

This week we're in love with the one-of-a-kind masterpieces of Sydney based (Florence trained!) fine jeweller Mia Chicco. Imbued with italian heritage and inspired by ancient roman treasures, her pieces are a uniquely beautiful statement of time-worn sentiment.

While it's no secret spilling florals enrapture our senses every time, this arrangement by Melbourne based Fleur is our idea of divine.

The culinary artistry of Sydney based Caterer Studio Neon has us dreaming of their delectable, gallery-worthy creations. While new to our handpicked list of breathtaking Wedding Photographers continually pushing the boundaries of their art form, is Sunshine coast based Janneke Storm (below).

For art lovers and interior design buffs (who isn't!?) we're dreaming of city skylines and the chic, boutique experience of The Olsen. Nestled in the Chapel Street precinct of Melbourne, think an intimate wedding of up to 50 guests, or a cocktail wedding of up to 350 guests where guests can attend and stay amidst the lyrical works of renowned Australian landscape artist Dr John Olsen.

Continuing our theme on artistry this week we're inspired by the ethos of Melbourne based Makeup Artist Tess McFadden who beautifully adheres to her guiding principle of "enhance don't cover".

Tear of the moon, we're swept away by the mystical beauty imbued in the work of Brooklyn based fine jeweller Vena Amoris, which is latin for "vein of love". It was traditionally believed that the fourth finger of the left hand was the only finger with a vein flowing directly from the heart. Romantic much?

And speaking of romance and dreaming, there are few more beautiful places to bask in the magic of love and the natural world, than at the end of the earth itself; Iceland. Thinking back to our recent trip, we couldn't help but lose ourselves in thoughts of it's barren beauty juxtaposed against the raw modern splendor of Iceland Luxury Lodges for the perfect honeymoon escape.

We're loving the relaxed indie bride vibes of Kansas City boutique BRIDE. Offering a personalised bespoke experience or their seriously refreshing "No Appointment Wednesdays" where you can wander in and shop their impressive curation of gowns at your own pace, your own way.

For the bride and groom who already have everything, the gift situation can be awkward and headache-inducing. For the right kind of headache(!) we love the idea (and ease!) of online wine gift registry Wine Please. Offering an impressive catalogue of wines at varying levels of luxury their service is free and easy to create, and a secure and fail-safe way for your guests to buy something they'll know you'll enjoy!

Obsessing over this gilded french lace drop veil in ivory gold by US based Girl With A Serious Dream. Reminiscent of the gilded Rococo architecture found within the Palace of Versailles, it is the ultimate statement of old-world french luxury. 

And finally, we're ever mesmerised by the ethereal moments and nostalgic beauty immortalised via the expert lens of Jose Villa. Proving yet again that he never misses a moment, this Tuscan wedding has our hearts.

From the Runway to the Aisle: Jessica Whitelock

Not ones to embrace the traditional when it comes to most things bridal related, we always find ourselves looking to the runway for bridal makeup inspiration.

One of our favourite makeup artists that understands that bridal makeup doesn't have to mean a face hidden by thick makeup is Melbourne-based Jessica Whitelock. What we love about Jess' work is her wildly creative eye and understanding of fashion trends, but especially how she translates trends to create effortless bridal makeup that exudes timeless beauty.

With extensive experience in bridal, fashion and celebrity makeup and working with clients including Miranda Kerr, Helena Christensen and Sass & Bide and on many coveted runway shows, it is know wonder Jess is in demand from brides Australia-wide. 

You can view more of Jess' editorial and bridal work on her website.

Inspired by real women and the stories behind people, structures, texture, colour in nature, character and mood, we love Liv’s flawless makeup, glowing skin and hair styling that has that sense of ease and effortlessness that we love!
