Mature makeup at its finest for a photoshoot. I filled in her eyebrows which made a huge difference in framing the face and eyes! Then I paired the brows with a smokey eye and tamed those eye bags and then kept everything else pretty neutral so her eyes would be the main focus. Who says older women can’t wear a smokey eye?!
Asian eyes can be quite challenging when it comes to makeup, especially when doing a smokey eye on mono lids.
Most are afraid to use too much dark eyeshadow or too much eyeliner because it will make your eyes look even smaller.
But if done right, a dark smokey eye can look super sexy & sultry and definitely enhance the shape of Asian eyes.👌

Better late than never! I’ve been extremely busy lately but here is my beautiful Indian bride from last month. The first wedding of the year for me!
Everything turned out perfect- even more so than the bridal trial we had prior. She looked soooo beautiful!!
Indian bridal makeup is much more dramatic and bold than your average bride: dark eyes, heavy contour and red lips. Together, all the colours just pop – they’re intense and so beautiful that it always always captures soooo beautifully on camera/film. I love doing Indian weddings!!! ❤️
One of my brides was featured on the knot.com! Nicola envisioned a classic yet romantic makeup look. She wanted a slightly bolder lip to go with a medium brown smokey eye. Everything turned out perfect!
I also had the pleasure of doing the mother of the bride’s makeup and also, the maid of honor’s makeup too. (Nicola’s sister)

Last weekend was a crazy one… Look how long it took me to do a blog post about it! I’m still recovering! #canthang #gettingold 😂😂
I had 3 weddings to do back to back to back. 10 clients and 10 hours later I made it out alive! Yay! 🙌 #hallejulah
Some pics from my crazy day:
My day started with a 6am car #selfie of course! 😆
#selfie with the beautiful bride #1! 👌😍 We were so rushed that I didn’t take any other pics of anyone else. 😦
Unfortunately I didn’t take any pics of the 2nd wedding party as well because we were so short on time. Again. #weddingproblems
#girlproblems actually lol
3rd wedding was the beautiful Jessica’s! I wish the sun wasn’t glaring though ugh.
HAIR & MAKEUP BY ME.
I don’t do updos but if you would like voluminous Victoria Secret model curls, I’m your girl! 😆😆;);)
After a long day’s work nothing like taking my face off 😨😨 😨 and settling down with my #greensmoothie. 👍🌇🌒
Another bright and early wedding day! 5am wakeup call! 😨😨 I was running on 2 hours of sleep; I couldn’t sleep the night before for some reason and it wasn’t even MY wedding!!! Lol 😂😂
As much as I would love to show up straight out of bed in my pjs without brushing my teeth or putting on makeup, I can’t do that to my brides! Or to the public!! 😮 So I still try to look as cute as my 5am self will let me. Gotta look presentable for my girls!! 👍👌 😆
Today’s bride does not wear makeup at all so she wanted very natural looking makeup for her wedding. We came up with a romantic and soft, super pretty bridal look!
For the maid of honor, I did a soft medium smokey eye using MAC’s ‘mythology’ eyeshadow with a light handed black eyeshadow to smoke out the outer corners. How smokin’ is she!! 🔥🔥😍
#selfie with the maid of honor! 💕
‘Love what you do and you’ll never work a day in your life’ #amen!! 🙌
Bridal Trials are one of my favs to do because I get to meet and get to know my bride before the big day. It’s like having a gf over for a makeover; always a good time and great conversation!! Not to mention it also helps make the day of wedding go smoothly and faster and not rushed since I know exactly what my bride wants for makeup 👍
Kristen wanted a ‘natural but not’ look for her wedding day and this is what we came up with. Super soft and super pretty! See you in September babe!! 💖
A few weeks ago I did a bridal trial for Kim which was also for her engagement pictures. I highly suggest my clients to do their bridal trial closer to the wedding date and also on a day where you have engagement photos to be taken, your stagette, a party, a special date, anything to not waste your beautiful face all done up! Kill 2 birds with 1 stone! Get out and be seen you sexy thing! 😘
Kim looked HOTTT. She wanted smokey eyes with a neutral lip and it matched her so well. Not to mention, it will also photograph really well also! See you in less than 2 weeks on your big day Kim!!!! 💍💐💒
