Part of reason that make me decide to be a bridal makeup artist is that I love weddings. It simply makes my heart smile.. Wedding season is here.. I live in Huntington beach, California. There are people getting married every day.
I know there are people who are reluctant to go to those weddings. But I just enjoy the good vibes there, I enjoy watching the beautiful bride walking down the isle with her picked wedding gown, or watching people having fun doing terrible dance. So today I am going to share some bridal makeup tips and tricks about bridal makeup to help your makeup last all day long, and it will make you look your best both in person and in photos. Lets start.
Bridal makeup primer
Rose water is woman's best friend. It moisturize your skin and hair. you can also use it to set up your makeup. Once you start using it, its hard to go without it.
Another spray I can't live without is smashbox photo finish mist. The hydrating, superfine facial spray uses revitalizing electrolytes to leave your skin looking radiant as it creates a sheer canvas for makeup application and helps lock in makeup to give you a photo-ready finish. And it is free of silicone, alcohol, and oil.
Under eye Concealer
The last thing bride wants to see are those dark circles in the pictures. Instead of using byebye undereye, I love this japanese concealer. It works like magic. The coverage is amazing and it moisturize your eye without making it look cakey. Another magic tool is shiseido luminizing satin face color. This was originally used for highlighter, it was found out later on that it covers eye bags like magic. one swipe, undereye circles are gone.
For wedding makeup, it is ok that conture looks heavier than your daily makeup. The camera will wash off most of the makeup. I like to use matty finish instead of glitters also for the photo reason.
Make your eyebrow color darker and longer for photo purpose. The flash of the camera will very likely wash off the tail of your eyebrows. To make sure your eyebrow stay put, use mascara strengthener. its great for keeping eyebrows in place.
Brown smokey eye
Brown smokey eye look is the most requested and classic look. To make sure the color shows well in photos, I like to use eyeshadow stick to couture my eyes instead of using powder eyeshadows. Eyeshadow sticks are highly pigmented, long lasting and you don't even need an eye primer. Try to use the majority of colors with matte finish. And add shimmer in the inner corner of the eyes.
eyelashes and eyeliner are so important for framing your eyes. We all know they need to be waterproof, there is another trick you can use. put some setting powder on the lower lash line. It will keep mascara and eyeliner from smudging.
It is always safe to go with nude colors. Using lip liners first will help keep lip color smudging. If you have dry lips, use lip balm on top. It helps a lot, trust me.
Try this little tricks and let me know if that works. Anyway, it is your big day. It is about you. Do whatever you like, and enjoy those moments
The retro glam vintage Hollywood waves hairstyle is back. There are so many ways to achieve this look. I am going to show you the easiest way to get this look with a curling iron. So you can get this look at home in 10 minutes.
It is all about sectioning the hair and keeping the waves at the same direction. I like to hold my curling iron horizontally and twist and wrap each strand around the curling iron three times. leave it about 5 seconds and let it go. Since I have medium length hair and I dont want to shorten my hair, I hold the end tight and leave it straight.This way, the waves look more natural and more wearable.

I recently have been looking for a good quality flat iron to replace my old Panasonic one. when it comes to hair styler, I am all about no damage to my hair. most of those flat irons causes frizzs and fly aways even thought it claims it is anti-frizz. So I finally got this: ghd gold limited edition ember sunrise..
It is just gorgeous. Bright orange flat iron comes in a same color heat resistant pouch. It is so travel friendly. It is very light weighted, which helps a lot when styling your hair. It only takes 25 seconds to heat up.
I started by testing a strand of my hair. My hair gets so slippery after letting the flat iron goes through one time. This styler is perfect for making beach waves. It gives you the effortless loose waves look. and it doesnt make my hair look short.

The daytime is getting longer, weather gets warmer, summer is coming. With the heat and moisture, you probably think do I need to change the foundation routine again? we all want products that are less heavy, and less greasy. And also have good coverage. I am going to introduce this magic foundation. With one step, you will achieve flawless skin.
I have medium length hair, and my hair is very thick, which makes it harder to hold the curls. I have been using iron wand, which is easier to use but does lots of damage to my hair.
But this curling iron is the easiest iron I have ever used. And it makes my hair feel supple and moisturizing. It has 5 thermal control stages, I normally starts with lowest. Once you get used to it, you can make it higher. The gold plate and the design of the barrel makes the heat transfer to the hair evenly. And one more important thing, the cord is LONG! You know how important that is.
