Last weekend Bella Kreations hosted our very first makeup workshop. Our workshop is all about teaching you the basics of makeup, while having a great time with your girlfriends. We had 16 girls attend, a few bottles of wine and some sweets!
We had the very talented Cakes by Ally Small cater the event, as well as come out and style our table for us – she is the cake queen!
The idea is to host your own girls day and we will come out to you and teach you the basics of how to do your own makeup like a pro. This is a great idea for a hens weekend, birthdays or just a simple catch-up with your friends.
All the girls were asked to bring their own makeup that they use everyday, so I could teach them how to use their own products, but I also supplied the mirrors, product and brushes if they needed it.
Everybody took home a goodie bag and a makeup guide that they can now flick through in their own time to refresh on anything they learned during the workshop.
If you’re interested in hosting your own event, please contact us by email using the contact form on this website and we can get back to you with more details!
Each year, June through to August slows down in the business with weddings. Not as many people getting married, I guess because of the cold. But there is something about a winter wedding that I love. I feel like the beginning of winter and the end of winter would be the perfect time to get married.
I am obsessed with Berta Bridal Wedding dresses and this dress above, which is my dream wedding dress. So simple and elegant, yet so perfect for a winter wedding.

It all started to trend with Kim Kardashian. You only have to say the name and yep, you got it – contouring. Contouring has been used for years by makeup artists, but only in more recent years it has started to grab everyone’s attention. Now contouring is becoming a big part of everybody’s daily makeup routine.
What is contouring? Contouring is a shading technique used to trick the eye into thinking that certain facial features are enhanced and defined. If done properly you can even change the look of your face. Contouring can make your nose smaller, eyes bigger and cheekbones more defined.
When contouring you want to make sure you pick the right product for your face. First of all, you want to grab a ‘matte’ bronzer powder or cream, whichever you prefer. Just keep in mind if you’re more on the dry side, it’s best to use cream, and if you’re on the oily side, use a powder.
You want your contour to be one to two shades darker than your skin tone. Any more than this and it can become too noticeable and unflattering to the eye. If you’re a fair skin tone, you want your contour to have a cool undertone and you want steer away from anything too orange/red based.
Grab your dark colour and apply it under and along your cheekbones, down the sides of your nose, along the hairline on your forehead and temples. Just be mindful when contouring your shading, so for instance, if you have a small forehead I do not recommend contouring along the hairline, as this can create the effect of your forehead looking even smaller. Instead, you would want to highlight to make it look bigger.
When contouring your cheekbones, you want to contour the hollows of your cheeks and the best way to do this is to suck them in and then apply your product. When doing this make sure you blend upwards using your brush or sponge, because you want your cheekbones to look enhanced.
Highlighting is all about opening and bringing forward areas of the face; anything you really want to stand out. You will highlight, for example, the bridge of your nose, above your cheek bones, under eyes and cupid’s bow.
Contouring and highlighting can be done in so many different ways, you can grab a shade darker in a foundation and a shade lighter in a foundation to do more of a dramatic contour. With contouring and highlighting it’s all about blending and, remember, its a lot easier to add more product than to take it away.
