Hawke’s Bay School Ball Season

I had the pleasure of working with a gorgeous school girl Elise Trow and finding the perfect outfit to wear to a school ball. The season is well upon us and the girls seem to be very organised. The dress trend this year is long and elegant – out with the short, in with the long! Think red carpet glamour with an Indie twist.

Photos taken at Hawke’s Bay Vineyard – Church Road Winery

I chose a 60′s look for Elise’s makeup which brought out her amazing eyes and we left her hair with long brushed out curls and plaits.

Hawkes Bay Make Up Artist Vania Bailey

Penny and her bridesmaids looked amazing in their Wedding Attire.It was a gorgeous Hawke’s Bay Wedding.
All the girls were wearing Dior Foundation that gave the skin a dewy finish.

Channel blush that warmed the checks to create a youthful fresh look and long wearing eyeshadow and liner by Dior.Coated lashes with ample amounts of the YSL mascara.

Lips were the colour of a soft rose and a hint of Bobbi Brown gloss was added to give the illusion of a more plumper defined lip.

Hair was by Pure hair.

Hawke’s Bay Wedding by Hawke’s Bay Make up Artist Vania Bailey

Hermione Peach got married at Mission Estate Winery to her husband to be Dan Kaans. Hair was done by Pure Hair and flowers were created by Zinnia. Hermione wanted a natural bridal look with defined eyes and flawless eye brows. Foundation was a light coverage as she had such beautiful skin and her lips were 2 shades darker than her natural lip colour. Her gorgeous dog was the ring bearer. As a Hawke’s Bay Make up Artist I am feel privileged to be part of their special day.
