Wedding Makeup: Bess and Reggie (May 18, 2013)

I haven't blogged about my work in a while. Well...I'm promising myself now to do that more often because there are just so many memorable weddings and pretty brides to share. I'll start with my most recent wedding gig as the memory is still very fresh on my mind. Bess was one of the brides who booked me for their wedding without trial makeup. Honestly, I'm quite flattered when that happens because it makes me feel that the bride trusts me and believe in my skill (nax! haha). But one look at Bess...effortless beauty. She's already stunning even without makeup. Here are the photos I took using my Cherry Mobile Titantv phone:

Bess' only request for her bridal makeup: not to look her face "matapang". Because that's her experience mostly when she has her makeup done by someone else. So I focused more on highlighting her best features. I also fixed her brows and made sure not to overdo it. 

Products used:

Temptu SB Primer
Temptu SB Airbrush Makeup 04
Shu Uemura Loose Powder
Ben Nye Matte Setting Spray

MUD Eyeshadow Champagne for her lids
MAC soft brown to blend the endges
MUFE taupe color to contour the eyes
Elizabeth Arden Vanilla Eyesadow to highlight the brows
MUFE Eyebrow Corrector for her brows set with MAC Boy Girl 

Graftobian cream blush
Shiseido Camellia Compact

MAC Pro Longwear in Love Forever


For Bess' second hairstyle for their reception program, I did a side-swept hairstyle. She'll be dancing so I opted for that style to keep the hair sleek even with the dance movements.

Watch also their same day edit by Lightshapers here. It's very nice!

I also did Bess' prenup hair and makeup. Here's a profile picture taken during their prenup session:


I also was touched when I got this text from them this morning. This inspired me to write more about my work on this blog because my brides have become part of my life already and I want to remember them always.
