studio910.ca 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!

i met azadeh this summer; she was referred to me by a mutual friend. when i met azy, she came prepared showing me websites with inspiration photos. she knew exactly which hairstyle she would have her hairstylist do and wanted a makeup look that would match the hairdo, as well as her lovely gown. we tried out a smokey eye, but in the end we went for beautiful glowing skin and soft brown eyes with individual lashes rather than a full strip. her sister, on the other hand, wanted slightly smokier eyes, while mom chose very natural makeup.
here are some stunning photos courtesy of the bride; she was photographed by lifeimages.
azy was also featured in wedluxe. from choice of wedding gown, to hair, to makeup, to venue, azy really has impeccable taste!
congratulations to lovely lady both inside and out!
i was put in touch with shan-shan through a mutual friend of ours. we met to do her engagement shoot where she requested soft dolly eyes. she was such a friendly bride; On the day of the wedding (where we began getting ready at 5:30am), she was busy offering tea to all of her bridesmaids! one bride and several bridesmaids to be ready by 8:30am – what a hectic morning it was! but so nice to meet such lovely ladies.
here are some photos by photographer richard emmanuel:
persis and jack are one of the most kind-hearted and easy-going couples i’ve had the opportunity to work with. i first met them for a coffee to discuss the different makeup looks and hairstyles persis had in mind; i was to create three different looks for her throughout the day. for many chinese weddings, the bride changes into several outfits through the day and like to have different makeup and hair looks to go along with it.
persis was so calm throughout the day and jack so considerate of everyone around. it was truly a pleasure to be able to accompany them throughout the entire day; everyone had a blast.

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:
