I volunteered on the spot to do up my colleague’s makeup and hairstyle. Since I did not have my thongs, I simply used plaits and tucked it under her hair to give that puffy effect. She wanted a similar style like my bridal hair, however, to make it more interesting I created a bow-shape on the left side of her hair.

My selection of nail colours for the wedding.

Initially I want to go for the usual French manicure for my wedding, instead I did my own nails. During first nail session before my studio shoot, the manicurist suggested a pearl white colour.The  strong lightings made my nails (colour) looked washed-out in the photos. So for your shoot, I suggest a deeper colour and not too glittery colour. On your actual wedding day, go for a colour that matches your gown. My morning gown was ivory and evening was a golden orange long-train gown. So I settled for Elegance (centre in photo), a shimmery peach colour which completed my soft and romantic look for day and night. img_1283


My options for my wedding lashes. A pair of brown, lushious lashes to widen my eyes early in the morning.img_12621image0711

For the evening, a pair of lashes that lengthened my eyes, giving me a cat-eyes look.

When you are having a photo-shoot for a big occasion such as a wedding, always remember to put on some fake lashes so as to accentuate your eyes. To complete the morning/evening look, use an eyeliner similar to the lash colour and go over the lash line. Apply a softer or lighter eyeliner under the eyes.
