I met Soraya last January at the Weddings and Beyond bridal fair where we had a trial makeup. A month after, she booked me to do her makeup for her wedding held last Sunday. She wants a very natural makeup and her concerns are her oily skin, how to make her chinky eyes pop and a few pimple scars.

For her oily skin, I made sure to prep her with the anti-shine cream by Smashbox, an oil-free primer by Laura Mercier and set her makeup by Graftobian makeup setting spray. These things help minimize the oilies and the setting spray made her makeup water-resistant and smudge-proof. Since it was super duper hot last Sunday, oilies still show but just one blot of tissue and makeup is fresh again :D
For her eyes, Soraya asked me to use silver for the eyeshadow. I used a darker color on her eyelids blending it upwards with a silver shade on the crease area to make her eye pop and of course with the help of false eyelashes.
For her pimple marks, I use a waterproof concealer from Makeup Forever.
Loved her gown by Vanessa Ang. Perfect fit on Soraya!
I also did the makeup of her mom, the groom's mom and her aunt. For more photos of my work, visit my FB Portfolio.
