Melissa & Chetwin’s PWS

Melissa’s prewedding shoot was back in 2018 so this is a really outdated post because I’ve been procrastinating so much. I was still living with my parents-in-law back then when she came over to do her makeup and hair.

I’m really grateful to have done this shoot because many of her friends and also common friends with my other brides came to find me to do their makeup and hair. Things work in their magical ways….

Times are really different now. I’m actually on zoom with fellow vendors right now as I’m typing this post. Stay home and stay safe people.

2019 Review

2019 is my official full year as a full-time makeup artist and it had been nothing but exciting and fulfilling. It had its ups and downs but I’m sure I can only become better from this.

I want to thank all my brides for trusting in me and also some grooms who were the ones who actually chose me to doll their beautiful wives up on their big day.

Here are some of my brides in 2019 and I’m so grateful to have met every one of them!

I had a total of 65 brides in 2019 and I’m so excited to meet another 65, 75, 85, 95 brides in 2020. Thank you so much for your trust!

Elise’s AD

It was a beautiful morning when I arrived at Elise’s place. I was welcomed by a huge landscape painting hung in the living hall and was ushered to level 2 passing by this not-so-tiny garden with water feature in the middle of the house.

I fell in love with her place at first sight. One of her bridesmaids shared her room with her which I thought was really sweet to sleep with your bestie the night before your wedding. You can share your thoughts and how nervous you are with her. It’s always good to have someone to share these feelings with.

I set up my makeup box and hair tools upon reaching the room while she got ready to begin her makeup. The first person the brides meet is usually her makeup artist and I’m honoured to be Elise’s.

The 2nd vendor you will meet in the morning will be your photographer. Benedict from eggsbenedictchan came shortly after I was done with her makeup.

As Elise had a tight morning schedule and she wanted to spend more time with her family, I did an updo that she can easily change to a half updo. This is a really special situation that I offered to do something like this for her. Otherwise, it will be recommended for brides to engage a mua to do a proper style change before the lunch banquet begins because if you screw up while removing the pins, you might have to march in with just curly hair.

Really glad to be a part of Elise’s big day and also have one of my partners doll up her mom, MIL and sisters.

Joanne’s AD

This is my first time working with Petrina and Leon from A Merry Moment and Petrina’s warmth really caught me by surprise. Usually photographers will not approach to talk to me and I’m very introverted when meeting new people for the first time so I was pleasantly surprised by her. This marks the start of our beautiful friendship and A Merry Moment is also one of my preferred partners! 🙂

The photos I took were er-herrmmm lousy. Haha. So I’m only uploading the photos taken by Petrina. Joanne opted for an updo in the morning.

As for her evening look, we went for a sidedo with beautiful curls resting on her shoulder.
