Tag Archives: sunset gold palette did such an amazing job in creating this cute video for bride lili and groom dave. i had such a great time doing lili’s makeup using the shu uemura sunset gold palette and shu pink lipsticks. the bridesmaids were in royal blue, so using the colour atelier eyeshadows in blue hues, i created soft, smokey blue eyes for them. it was a fun morning!


Lili + Dave from Studio 910 on Vimeo.

bride lili found me through a forum and after her trial, i got to meet her amazing bridesmaids, jen and maddy. besides being able to beautify such great people, i got to make three new friends. we are all still in touch through facebook – i love what i do!

lili was a simple bride; she wanted to look fresh with rosy lips and nothing too dramatic for her eyes. so i used the shu uemura sunset gold palette and painting liner in brown.

jen is a full out shu uemura fan! she came telling me that she had prepped her skin with the complete shu uemura red:juvenus line (great choice – i use the emulsion as well).

maddy wanted something smokey for her eyes, but not too overdone. their bridesmaids dresses were a rich royal blue, so i chose some blue tones from the shu uemura color atelier eyeshadows and i use the the shu uemura drawing pencil in me blue.

GCL Photography was there to capture beautiful shots of the special day:

10 of us were left in the competition and our last video challenge was a birds of paradise theme. the look that i created was inspired by the golden back tropical bird using shu uemura’s sunset gold palette – which i love to use for my bridal clients!

as a “wow-factor”, photographer mark darren mui and i came up with the idea of using two models for the photo. i wanted to use janice wu’s younger sister, stephanie wu, and have her nestled into her older sister like two birds in a nest. this was my submission:

to watch the creation of this look. The video was created by talented videographer Teddy Chau.
