WEDDING | Flora by

Flora and I met a year ago when she was a bridesmaid (and I was the make-up artist!) for her friend Hun-Sun’s wedding.  I know I keep talking about time, but I can’t believe pretty much a year has passed since we first started talking about Flora’s Big Day….and now her Big Day has come and gone.  Wow.

I love Flora’s bridal look – Ming of Puzzle Creations did a beautiful job on hair…and that bird cage veil is like icing on the cake!!

(subtle make-up trick note:  look at the huuuuge difference eyebrows make below!)

So this (me below on left) is what I sometimes show up to a wedding appointment looking like (especially with 5AM starts!).  Flora insisted on a picture, even though I was weary without my usual game face of full make-up on….but I figured since nearly all my clients kindly agree with letting me post their ‘befores and afters’, I suppose it’s only fair that I have a ‘before’ on the blog too!  (…now just have to work on finding an after!)  :) :)

See more with Flora + her bridesmaids on!

Congrats Flora!!  All the best to you!

Welcome to my journal and journey as a make-up and hair artist with all the beautiful people and products I encounter along the way.

    This is absolutely gorgeous, Rhia! You should never be weary of your bare face because you are stunning. Your skin is so translucent and it’s radiating like the bride.

    Congrats on a great job :)
