Sonia Allen is a talented international makeup and hair artist based in Sydney, Australia. She writes a wonderful blog with tips and advice about styles and products, all whilst giving a sneak peak into her work. La Bride is sharing with you this wonderful story today.
In this beautiful bridal editorial, Sonia created her model’s look by using bold colors against a porcelain matte complexion.
Working together with bridal gown designer Rhonda Hemingway, she chose to create a look that could transfer over the various styles of gown, whilst remaining true to Sonia’s make up and hair inspiration. Sonia drew heavily from the forest, the intertwining tree branches and roots, cascading effortlessly into the forest. The model’s hair reflects this, while her lips are as red as woodland berries.

Sonia’s hair creation reflects the wrapping vines and wild ivy growing within the forrest.
Thanks Angela Rose Photography for the stunning photography.
Deep cherry red lips make for a dramatic contrast against the model’s skin and the last rays of light before sunset.
