As I was going through some of our past wedding photos, I saw this one from our 2018 May bride Jacqueline!
Absolutely love the final day makeup and hair on her! And I’m so glad she was able to fully trust me and my team!
p,s a little back end story, we went back and forth quite a few times after her trial to alternate her most desired looks on both makeup and hair. So if you are a bride to be and noticed the color and style you loved on someone else doesn’t look good on you, I ensure that you are not alone! This happens! More than you think!! The most important thing is to communicate well before your trial and during your trial! Find a team that’s trustworthy!
This Bridal Makeup Look is dedicated to brides to be who want a soft glam look for their big day.
I’m always amazed of how much color the camera washes off..So, even though, this makeup looks quite ‘natural’ on camera, it’s more glam and heavy in person. 🙂 To achieve this look on myself, I had to use a good amount of coverage to start with because of all my skin imperfections. Filling in brows is one of the most important part I’ve notice since I’ve started taking photographs. It feels really weird to fill in my brows, extend them and make them look darker, because I hardly ever do anything with them even when I go out! I know a lot of you feel the same way, but let me tell you this, your brows has to balance your entire makeup when it’s done. When it’s too light or sparse comparing to the rest of the face, it will end up looking like as if the makeup is not finished and some part is missing! Especially for close up photos like below. Trust me on this!! 🙂
For this look, I wanted some sparkle on my eyes but still make my eyes look bigger and stunning for photos. Those of you who are Asians probably know that it’s hard to achieve both. That is probably also what I’m good at: adjusting the placement of colors and liners and depending on your eye shape. 🙂
Now lastly, I finished the look with some highlight on my cheek bones, the bridge of the nose and used a fan brush for a dust of over all glow!
I always inform my clients about the fact that camera washes off colors quite a bit and help them to balance what they are looking for in images and also feel comfortable on a personal level. It is true though, the images will last forever after your big day and that’s going to be the memories for both of you! If it’s hard to decide, we are here to help by staying longer to give you different looks through out your day, and adjust what look goes best according to your time for ‘First Look’, ‘ceremony’ and evening dancing party..On top of that, I would stress you by asking you to do a pre-wedding trial. It is that necessary and it is all about you!!
