Halifax Wedding Makeup

Our wedding anniversary was last week, I found myself looking back at our wedding photos and 7 years later I can say I'm still very happy with our small backyard + rec centre reception, wedding. 

The only thing I would change would be to hire a videographer! 

We didn't think about that, it was 7 years ago..
Way back in the olden days, when we thought photos would be enough. LOL

Things have come such a long way since then, every speck of our lives are now caught on video from the palm of our hand iPhone, so to have no video of our special day seems strange. 

My sister's 2nd wedding anniversary is coming up so I thought it would be fun to look at some makeup photos from my wedding 2013, to her wedding 2018. 

*Factor in the quality of these photos because all I could find was FB photos from our wedding day.

2013 - At my parent's house we had our makeup done by Allison Kirby (Click here) 

It was the classic smoky grey, purple that wedding makeup is known for!
Flattering on everyone and every wedding.

I picked out a new lipstick for the day, Mac's Lustre Lipstick in Sweetie. (click here)

In 2018 my sister was married and we had our makeup done by Amaya Baxter (click here)

Again we let her have creative freedom, with the exception of a bold lip for me!

And it turned out so fabulous.

I wish I had some better close-ups side by side because I loved how she explored different eye makeup for both me and the bride!

It's difficult to see from this distance but my lids were more plumful and hers were more brown tones which really flattered my green eyes and her brown.

Looking through all these photos makes me so envious of the ease of those years and I really hope we will be looking forward to large celebrations in the not so distant future and maybe I can book a makeup appointment for something special?? 

I love playing with makeup on myself but there's nothing as glam feeling as having someone else do it <3


  1. Thanks, Holly, for sharing your wedding photos. Amazing wedding photos! I love your smokey wedding makeup. I always prefer bold coloured lipstick. Great work by makeup professionals Allison and Amaya. I regularly read blogs on hair care websites. It helped me to know about some of the simple Hair care tips that I can include in my regular haircare routine.

  2. I promise not to waste your time with the run of the mill ideas and thoughts. If I don’t add tangible incremental value to your perspectives, knowledge, business or career, write me a note and either you will convince me that I wasted your time, or I will convince that you didn’t realize the incremental knowledge that I imparted to you.
