This was a low-key test shoot, aiming for morning light. Therefore, we had an early call time 5:30am for makeup & hair. To my future brides who will need to start early because of tea ceremony or for city hall appointment purpose, your sleep is crucial the night before. I’d suggest take a Melatonin if you have trouble falling asleep. Be serious about getting that 6-8hrs sleep. If not, most likely you’ll wake up with puffy eyes, puffy face and dark circles, plus not feeling your best. If that happens, our goal for a radiant natural look might be compromised. So, get your beauty sleep!
Let’s talk about the makeup here. It was simple with the eyeshadows. I played with light golden peach tone for the eyes and a more coral shade on the lips. We had to use 2 layers of extensions in her hair here to create this wavy, pin-to-the-side style, because her hair is really fine and also wasn’t long enough for the look. If you have fine and thin hair but you want to wear your hair down and wavy, hair extension is your friend. I personally love Luxy brand after tested a few brands throughout the years.
Love the fresh flower cluster on the bride’s hair, designed by April. For an outdoor wedding where your venue is filled with greens and beauty of nature, fresh flowers on your hair is always a good idea, especially if your dress is has a flowy and organic look.
