My beautiful client Michelle decided to have a family photo shoot with her 10 month old baby on their 2 year wedding anniversary day. She had booked me for makeup and hair in May, after being change of schedule and due to weather reason, we finally met at July! I felt super thankful for her patient, she drove all the way from downtown to my Richmond Hill studio for makeup and hair, and back to downtown for taking her baby then they went to Scarborough for the photo shoot! I'm so grateful to all my clients for accommodating my time during the busy wedding season.
Michelle is a very thoughtful girl, she had ordered a bunch of big balloons for the shooting, she had an idea for taking photo in greens and nature grassland with a fresh hairstyle. We've discuss the hairstyle she likes, this is the picture she sent me.
This is a very popular wedding hair style with braids with loose hair at the side. It had requested by many of my brides. It's not only a wedding hair style but also could be party hair, prom and any event hair.
Alright, this is the same hair style I've done on her!!! woohoo! I love it and she loves it too! Let's check out the picture from photographer!

I received my lovely bride Candy and Jeff's Engagement Photo right after a week! This lovely couple did a great job on posing and smiling. Candy is a very cute girl, she preferred simple, cute and nature bridal makeup style. The first style I did braids on both sides with hair down for her, I think this is a perfect engagement style for photo shoot. It is also very suitable for her with her little white dress. The second style she's wearing a red dress and she wanted all her hair down , I did a waterfall bridal hair style for her, this is a romantic and cute style for any kind of wedding style. Two different bridal styles of engagement photo, each with its own characteristics, which one you like？
這次要分享的engagement照片是我的新娘Candy和Jeff的訂婚照片。這次拍攝和化妝造型分為了兩天，第一天是在多倫多Scarborough的guildwood village。當天拍攝是在早上7點日出後，攝影師認為是這個地點最佳的拍攝時間，所以Candy那天一大早就來找我化妝了，真是辛苦啦。第二天是在多倫多Downtown的Osgoode Hall。Candy走的是可愛路線，她想要呈現出自然小清新的感覺，第一個造型我幫她做了編髮和放下來的新娘造型，很適合她。而第二天她還是想把頭髮全部放下，我幫她做了浪漫的waterfall新娘造型,依然可愛。兩種不同風格的新娘造型訂婚照各有特色，真是太美啦，大家一起來欣賞吧！
Thanks to Snapful Photographer for the amazing photo

I always had brides ask me "what I should pack to touch up my makeup on my wedding day?" As a professional bridal makeup artist, I will prepare a makeup touch up kit for every of my brides to touch up in case anything happened. The touch up kit is very easy to use, so here in this blog, I will show you what's included in my touch up kit!
-Disposable makeup remover swabs (filled with olive oil for simple and quick point
makeup corrections, especially for under eye smudge if cry/ sweat )
-Oil blotting paper (help absorbs excess oil and sebum instantly）
-Loose powder (this is a Water-oil balance control powder, it is translucent, help balancing excessive sebum and shine)
-Mini lip brush with lipstick on.
-Eyelash glue ( stick the false eyelashes if it drops)
-Bobby Pins (some extra bobby pins for loose hairs)
After read through this page so you could prepare for the rest, add whatever you want to this makeup touch up kit. I hope these are the useful products to help for the emergent moments, or if you have any suggestions, please leave a comment and let me know!
All the brides would want to take the extra effort to look and feel their best on the wedding day. A Professional makeup artist with experiences in weddings would like to provide you additional skin care tips in how to make you looking good for the whole wedding day.
The first and most important way to make a big different for your skin is to eat healthily. Avoid food items are in high sugar, high sodium, deep fried, too oily or too spicy. Eat more greens vegetables, fruits, and drink more water instead of coke and coffee. I know this can be very hard for some people, but its very true that what you eat from your mouth ends up whats showing up to your face. So keep start eat healthy from now for few months, you will notice a change in your skin.
exercise is important too, by getting some cardio activities every day, will help your blood circulation, soon you will see your skin tighten and brighten with nature blush on your face.
Ensure you exfoliate your skin, there are so many exfoliate products in the market help your skin smooth and clean, I suggest exfoliate skin once a week, before wedding week, exfoliate twice a week to keep foundation long lasting and avoid caking.
Under Eye Care
Every bride might had some eye concerns such as wrinkles, dark circle, puffiness. A lack of sleep can cause tired, weak muscles which may increase the size of the bags beneath the eyes. By putting on concealer to cover under eye area for these problems, eye care and moisturizing is the most essential thing to do to keep the makeup look nature. During the day, always apply non sticky eye cream and gel before sunscreen, or look for an eye cream that contains sun protection. Remember Some eye creams are too rich would cause fat particles. Also get at least eight hours of sleep each night helps reduce eye area problems.
There is a well known Eye cream from Estee Lauder called Advanced Night Repair Eye. The offical website called it had been tested and Proven, delivers significant clinical improvement. I've heard so many good reviews from this eye cream for helping puffiness, dark circle problems, so I tried it, it does work! It's a very silky texture eye gel leaves your eye area a very comfortable feeling.
There is another kind of eye gel I used and would like to recommend for everyone. The Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme+ Global Anti-Aging Cell Power Eye Gelee, and
Garnier under eye roller. The reason I like them because they had similar function, they both had a little roller/ cooling massage tip. This is great for lazy people who just open and roll around the eye with massage and eye cream on!
Also, consider adding some sort of hydrating serum, hydrating moisturizer. Apply it daily before makeup to help cure some of those fine lines that may appear on the face. Follow a proper skin routine helps skin looks good, the proper skin routine should be : cleansing-toner-serum-hydrat cream-eye cream.
Apply lip balms on your lip should be a part of any skin care routine. The night before Wedding day, apply some lip balm or some Vaseline to the lips. This will help soften your lip in the lead-up to the wedding makeup, of course you don't want others to see a dry lip and the dead skin on the lips when they get closer to you on the wedding day. For here I would like to recommend a lip mask from Laneige, you could get it from Sephora, I use it as lip balm every night before bed for about a year and still haven't finish! Which is very worth to try. Other than this lip mask, Vaseline is my all time favorite for lips, hands, feet, I can not live with out Vaseline! I used the baby Vaseline just because i like the scent. Also it's cheap , only few dollars you could get a big jar that could use forever.
There are also some beauty Tips I could suggest all the bride-to-be consider about:
By getting started early and being prepared for the perfect look on your wedding,
It is important to plan out a beauty routine in preparing even months ahead of time. You Won't get the result on Friday if you start doing it on Monday, Skin care routine is a long process. A flawless wedding makeup base on a perfect skin, so prepare it as earliest as you can. Relax and enjoy the big day in your life!!!
Xiaoyi & Xiaobo's wedding from last year October, I remember it was a super nice, fresh and cool autumn day. This lovely couple held their intimate wedding at Colette Grand Cafe at Downtown Toronto. My lovely bride Xiaoyi wants a super soft and natural makeup with loose and messy hair bun at the back. I put all her hair up to show her beautiful forehead with some loose curve at both sides, together with the simple makeup that gave our bride a timeless elegant look. It's my Pleasure to be part of this lovely wedding and I wish this great couple all the best in the many years to come!
Xiaoyi和Xiaobo的婚禮是在去年10月份秋天進行的一個小婚禮，還記得那天秋高氣爽，天公助美，讓這對可愛新人的婚禮增添額外一份溫馨感。我美麗的新娘想要化一個非常非常自然舒服的妝，加上清爽的髮型，我幫她設計了讓額頭的頭髮全部往上盤，兩邊留下一點微捲的髮絲修飾臉型，後面按照新娘的喜好做成一個鬆鬆的髮髻，既浪漫又時尚經典。我很高興參與這一場婚禮，也希望這對新人在以後的日子裡甜甜蜜蜜，幸福快樂。 以下的照片是來自於很有才華的攝影師Eric Cheng 他的網址在下面的鏈接，有需要拍照的可以找他。
