Talented Celebrity and Wedding makeup artist Yolanda Lukowski recently took the time to answer a few of our questions on all things wedding makeup. We are thrilled to have Yolanda as part of our professional community and are sure our brides and grooms will love her tips and checking out her profile of work (including a number of bridal magazine features!).

Happy reading xo

How and why did you get into wedding makeup? 

My motivation for getting into makeup was the absolute joy and pleasure I get from seeing a woman feeling her absolute empowered best after having her makeup done, seeing her smile and gain confidence. There’s a lot to be had in the saying “do a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life!”

What trends are you seeing in wedding makeup for 2019?

The Pantone colour of 2019 is “Living Coral” and I think we will see that translate into soft, peachy tones on the cheeks for a natural blush and pretty coral colours on the lips. Steering away a little from the harsh contouring and brown colours of the last few years.

What’s your one essential makeup item?

I couldn’t live without my packets of  individual lashes!

If you could take makeup inspiration from one celeb, who would it be?

Margot Robbie! She always looks so fresh and modern, but when you break down her makeup looks, she actually isn’t wearing much at all.

If you could give couples just one tip for their wedding day, what would It be?

Don’t sweat the small stuff, stay present in the moment, and enjoy every second!
