"No research, no makeup trial, my only choice. " the bride Huiwen said she just wanted me to do her bridal styling! Aww, how can I not love her?! <3
I have done hair and makeup once for Huiwen before when she was doing a video shooting for the magazine she worked for. It was a program talking about health on youtube as she was one of the hosts.
Huiwen doesn't wear makeup normally, hence she wants to look natural on her bid day. Her request is simple and straightforward: she looks like herself after makeup and would like to have volume on the crown.
Before doing the hair and makeup, I'd like to know what my client does for her everyday look and observe her personality to make my work closer to real her. For Huiwen, tapes on her eyelids (Most Taiwanese brides like to tape their eyelids to create obvious double eyelids and make eyes bigger), long and voluminous false eyelashes or doll-like eyes are not her style at all; instead, neutral, boyish with a touch of feminine is what I think of her bridal look.
I'm glad that she also loves the philosophy of 'Less is more' because she appreciates who she is and she believes that no need to wear extra accessories to accomplish her.
