Penting untuk kita ingat bahawa majlis akad nikah adalah lebih personal daripada majlis reception. Di majlis akad nikah, family members, relatives dan rombongan pihak lelaki duduk bersimpuh selantai dengan kita pengantin. Rasa emosi kita dikala itu lebih tersentuh dengan penyatuan ikatan ini. Sebab itu, natural makeup adalah lebih sesuai untuk upacara yang penuh emosi ini.. sambil hati mengucap tanda kesyukuran ke atas-Nya.
However, a natural makeup doesn’t make the work any lesser. Cuma selection color nya yang lebih natural. Adalah menjadi tugas makeup artist utk menaikkan seri pengantin & menampakkan wajah pengantin flawless supaya hasilnya di dalam gambar, lebih chantik lagi!

Tomorrow there will be 1 more makeup for photoshoot to be done. I am all excited as it will be another for Indian Bridal. I find it fun to do Indian Bridal. With all the variety of colors like red, gold, green, orange.. which are mainly use in Indian wedding. Such colors make the bride looks very grand with all the jewelries & flower & ornament .. just how the brides would want them to appear. As the theme tomorrow is grand Indian wedding, we are expecting to use more jewelry so I have to play the cards right on selecting which color to use on the model. I will take this challenge and bring the most of me. InsyaAllah J

Coral is the new Spring 2010! Bobbi Brown especially is getting coral back into their lines. Chanel too has brilliant coco rouge lines for coral; and they are sold out most of the time! Which is great. But need to play safe on this color or u will end up look like in a retirement home :p
The trick is, to wear coral lipstick during the day in gloss/sheer and during the evening with matte finishing. But never gets it too vibrant or u will turn out rather odd. Tan skin will look great with coral but never push too hard on other areas; natural eyeshadow not to dark coz u are not going for a runway, but smokey eyes are great, moderate blusher & keep the coral tone low. Some may like a vibrant color but not for coral or else on ur wedding day, it will be about ur lipstick rather than the wedding itself!
Well I personally love coral color. U may check the range @ MAC & Bobbi Brown & Chanel. U can also mix ur lipstick. Orange+Red. Balance amount of each color and u will get the right soft coral that we are discussing above here :)
Have a try brides!! :)
Decent enough :)

Many of u would wonder.. what is the best look suitable for u. One might say the most cover-up u do, the better. Which I couldn't agree any lesser. However, heavy make-ups doesn't make u look overdo or fake for that matter. With a good touch, heavy makeups able to conceal the flaws on ur skin but also at the same time, let the natural looks of ur features appeal. Many has mistaken the theory of "natural looks" for makeup. If u have a definitely flawless skin, less foundation will uphold the natural glow of ur skin. However, skin with acne problem or blemishes or scars, need heavy concealing. But it is not impossible for u to have a natural look beauty. The trick is, color palate. What I mean by color palate is the combination of foundation, powder, eyeshadow & lips color must be sync with ur natural skin color. A good blend of the colors will make u look as natural is it could be :)
However, we can't proclaim the same technic when u are up on stage or dais. Spot lights will eat away the colors on ur face, that's why most makeup artist will emphasis more on the color and face contour so u will not drawn under the lime light. But what makes it different is to have a smooth foundation for some times these kinda technic will make u look on a heavy makeup face to face. A smooth foundation will make the difference by a thousand. So don't be fooled by the pictures taken on the magazine or in photoblogs coz it can deceive u. Hehe.. not that I cheat!! No... All these are straight from my Lumix or HTC Desire or N97 phone camera :) No photoshop please :p
So as u can see, natural looks makeupdo is the same technic as how heavy makeup as u would call it. The difference are color choices. But a secret to a long lasting foundation is a good makeup base ;) Well... if u are talking about daily makeups for example to the office, well, u don't need make up artist for that. U just need to trust urself what's better for u :)
For those who has booked me, I will meet u soon. And for all my satisfied clients, Alhamdulillah.. everything went on great :) And thank you for all ur good words towards my work. May Allah bless u.
