Hair Styling And Makeup Tips

1 | A s i a n - M a k e U p

Hair and makeup are things which would-be-brides put
considerable importance on because they want to look their best
in their big day, whether on photos or in person. Asian brides are
of no exception. While applying makeup and styling hair on an
Asian bride is not much different than on other races, it is often
best delegated to a professional.

The reason for this is that professionals would know how to work
with the various shades and undertones of Asian skin and how to
style your jet black hair. Also, most Asian women have almond-
shape eyes, have eyelids without creases, and stubbornly sparse
eyelashes can make applying eye makeup challenging for some.
Asians also tend to have thinner lips, and some would-be-brides
may want to make them appear fuller without having to undergo
surgery or have lip injections. An experience bridal hair stylist and
makeup artist can solve these problems and give you the look you

Asian bridal makeup artists can, for
instance, make use of black eyeliner
and black mascara as these help bring
more attention to your eyes and make
them appear better in pictures. They
can apply light beige shadow on your
brow bone to give the impression that
your eyes are larger.
Hair stylists who have previous experience with Asian women are
knowledgeable of traditional hairstyles. If you are a bit more
adventurous, they can also give you a modern Asian hairstyle.

Pointers in Selecting a Hair and Makeup Artist

If you don't have one yet, ask people you
trust who recently got wed if they can
recommend a hair or makeup artist.
Many of these professionals advertise
online through directories or through their
own websites, making learning about their
services relatively convenient. Look at the
makeup artist's or stylist's portfolio to see
if you like their work. When reviewing
samples of their work, look at how clean and creative their works
are. It would not be enough to just read about these experts
though, you have to talk to them in person so you can ascertain
whether or not you can establish a good rapport with them. You're
likely to be nervous on the day of your wedding, having a makeup
artist or stylist who is high-strung would only add to your anxiety.
Ask for credentials and how long they have been in the business

Remember to schedule for trial makeup and hair styling session
months ahead so if you are not happy with what you see you still
have time to improve the look or to find another beauty expert.
