VENDOR SPOTLIGHT - SHE. Brows & Makeup Artistry
Updated: Mar 2, 2020
HOW DO YOU FIT INTO THE WEDDING SCENE? WHAT DO YOU DO?
Hi, I am Stevie owner of SHE. Brows & Makeup Artistry and I am a qualified makeup artist. Every bride and her bridal party need a makeup artist for her special day and I’m your gal. Besides the dress and hair, a makeup artist completes the whole look for a bride on her special day.
WHAT MAKES YOU, YOU? WHY ARE YOU DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS IN YOUR FIELD?
I specialise in bridal makeup. I am a perfectionist and have an eye to know what looks and colours will work best on each individual and I have a specific style of makeup. I assure to use high quality makeup brands with high pigment, longevity and durability, products which feel light on the skin and last all day, so there is no worry. After makeup applications, I also stay around to offer touch-ups prior to the ceremony, to make sure the bride is happy with her final overall look and everything is ready and in place before her day officially starts.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR STYLE OF VIBE?
I would describe my style of makeup as ‘natural glam’, nothing too extreme or cakey, but not too natural that there looks like no makeup has been applied. Natural makeup brides – the trick is to have a flawless base, a little more coverage than usual for photos. You don’t want to spend money to look like you have no makeup on. I absolutely love creating beautiful flawless glowy skin and adding a pop lip or a statement eye just comes along as a bonus. My most requested bridal look is a bronzed eye and glowy skin, a very subtle yet affective, and very romantic yet sexy makeup look. But overall, I love to make each individual, whether be the bride, bridesmaids, mother of bride/ groom, grandmother or guest, feel 100% comfortable in their own skin. That she still feels like her, with a little extra confidence and know that she feels beautiful. The reactions my clients get once her final look is complete and she looks at herself in the mirror, is why I do what I do.
I feel like when someone service related is a part of a wedding in any way, they need to have the personality to match. They need to be friendly, knowledgeable, confident, empathetic, relatable and personable. I feel I have these qualities. After every wedding bridal party I have worked with, I have always walked away feeling I have been friends with everyone for years.
HIT US WITH YOUR BEST WEDDING TIPS!
1. Look after your skin, because better your skin, the more flawless the base will be and the less makeup coverage you will need.
2. If you have a makeup trial, be fussy! A good/ confident makeup artist won’t be offended if you don’t like a particular look, we strive to make you happy. Everyone has different ideas and experiences with makeup. In the end you need to be comfortable in your skin and the makeup that has been applied. Because the final look and how you feel about it will be remembered forever.
3. Exfoliate your skin the night before the wedding to remove any flaky bits of skin and for a flawless makeup finish.
4. It is YOUR wedding day. You making decisions doesn’t mean you are a bridezilla. If your bridesmaids are fussy about what they are wearing, or don’t like their hair or makeup, don’t be afraid to remind them that this day isn’t theirs. You are a damn Queen. This day is yours!
Enjoy the morning of, being pampered and being surrounded by those who love you.
Make sure you eat, you don’t want to be too nervous and faint down the aisle.

When working in my salon the phrase I hear over and over again when we talk about weddings is, 'I wish I hired a wedding coordinator'. It often isn't until after the wedding day that couples realise how much work is involved with a wedding, especially on the day. So save yourself the stress and hire Renee, she is a little energizer bunny who has a wealth of knowledge and experience in both planning and coordinating a wedding. I have seen her in action, she literally RUNS!
