AWW Cover with Edwina Bartholomew
Edwina Bartholomew for AWW , makeup by Nicola Johnson


So excited to share this stunning cover for The Australians woman’s weekly magazine. Our gorgeous cover star Edwina Bartholomew presenter of Sunrise & her beautiful family. We shot at Edwina’s home ‘Warramba’ a sandstone country cottage in Glen Alice in the greater Blue Mountains region.

Surrounded by vast landscapes and highland cows & in between singing ‘heads, shoulders, knees & toes’ to baby Molly; Photographer Alana Landsberry captured these breathtaking shots.

Our fabulous stylist Jamela Ejjamai chose a palette of warm neural tones; tans, creams & soft pinks, with designs from Voellk, Rachel Gilbert & witchery.

I wanted Edwina’s makeup to beautifully compliment the colour scheme so I went for a soft golden brown matte eye, glowing skin & a soft pink lip.

I always spend time on the skin before I start applying any makeup, Massaging & Priming the skin tobecca backlight primer help with the overall finish of the makeup. I  love to layer up my favourite glow products, I first applied a light layer of Becca’s Back Lit primer all over Edwina’s skin, this gives it a really subtle radiance without being to shiny.


On the areas I really want to pop, like the cheekbones I applied Becca’s Shimmering skin perfector liquid highlighter in Opal before buffing over with Ultimate coverage foundation.

For Edwina’s eye makeup I used Charlotte Tilbury Eye shadow Quad in The golden goddess, rich warm undertones really helped make Edwina’s gorgeous blue eye’s pop.

I used the lightest colour all over the lid as a base & then built up with the deepest colour on the outer corners of the eye & shaded underneath the eye.  I used a good coat of one of my new fav mascaras ‘Bad Gal bang’ by benefit bad gal bangcosmetics – which adds volume to the lash as well as being a super black in colour.
