Friday I'm in Love: Soft + Natural Look!

Queensland Brides Hair & Beauty Inspiration!

To pull off Katie’s soft and natural, doe-eyed look Kevin from  Girl Friday’s Make Over Lounge had his muse in rollers to create soft curls and used pinks, taupes, mauves and nude tones from the Lucinda Jane collection to complement Katie’s baby blues. He then created drama worthy of a princess with using Pro Finish mineral powder, plum lip tones with a gloss finish and lashings of mascara from the Lucinda Jane collection.

QB Loves : Bridal Beautiful!

The key to a stunning bridal look is flawless skin enhanced with colours to suit your skin tone. Go natural for a summery beach wedding or glamorous for a sophisticated city or vintage-inspired celebration.

Adele Marney from Beauty & Co. put the focus on fresh clean skin and a glowing foundation, then softly emphasised Adele’s features using Blossom from the Arbonne Collection on her cheeks. To enhance Adele’s gorgeous chocolate eyes she used Arbonne’s Moss, Cabernet and Ivy. She then “channelled the glamour gods to create a Veronica Lake look with a new millennium spin” creating sculpted waves to frame her face perfectly. Finally she took glam a step further with bold Cherry lip liner and Strawberry lips for a long lasting and very kissable look!

Qld Brides Design Awards, one night ... 119 glorious gowns.

Introducing every gown from the 2010 Queensland Brides Design Awards.
One night. 119 glorious gowns. Held in October at the Brisbane Convention Centre, where couples had already enjoyed a day at our fabulous Wedding & Honeymoon Expo, the awards were an inspirational showcase of all things bridal and beautiful. 

A judging panel which included some of the stars of the local wedding and design industries as well as three People’s Choice judges had the rather daunting task of nominating winners from the parade of head-turning gowns. Compères Leigh Muirhead and Steve Hill guided us through fi ve categories full of gorgeous fabrics, stunning silhouettes, incredible workmanship and plenty of variety. 

In the ever-popular Student Calico Bride category the bright future of Queensland design was on show. You’ll be astonished at what these young designers can do with a swathe of calico and a lot of imagination! Enjoy choosing your favourites and see you at the 2011 awards.
