So, I have a bunch of weddings I have to attend this coming summer break and also a lot more weddings I'm gonna miss at the end of the year.
You know sometime you look through people's wedding albums (nowadays so easy on facebook, dulu-dulu bila kita pergi rumah family pengantin few months later kita tanya, nak tengok gambar kenduri!). Every girl wants to look pretty on their big day, but the question is, how pretty?
I don't wear makeup much when I go out, but I loooooove watching tutorials on youtube. My first makeup set is because I did the makeup for Malaysian Day mock wedding ceremony for the bride. Haha. comot-comot je masa tu.. It was my childhood ambition to work as hair-stylist ( Yes, I do hair for girls too - to be exact, I do hair rebonding, buat house-call pun pernah diknon :-) ). Of course that was one ambition I didn't pursue seriously but I enjoy sitting in salons and see how the stylist work.
In Irbid, if you go to their beauty parlor, you'll see how Arab women take care of themselves. They wear the hijab and abaya but they dress amazingly inside the abaya and take good care of their hair and skin. Jangan kau mentang-mentang pakai tudung, rambut bila dekat rumah, Cik Kuntilanak pun kalah! That's the beauty of Islam that they practice, I guess - berhias di rumah, tidak di luar. Tak dinafikan, yang over dekat luar pun ramai, tapi still, dia jaga penampilan di rumah.
Okay back to bridal makeup issue kan.. Sementara ingat ni.. Actually, the science behind bridal makeup is too look more radiant than you usually does. Well, that's easy sebab pengantin memang ada seri pengantin kan from the excitement, and nervousness. So, just to cover some skin problems, and highlighting some of your underappreciated features is good enough. Not to look like a totally different person!
Pernah tak tengok gambar before and after and you was like - gile lah makeup die sampai jadi macam artist. Ye la, dah dia pakai makeup artist kan.. Oh ya, just to share with you tahukah anda mak andam and makeup artist is different? Makeup artist ni dia buat makeup you je, tapi mak andam dia mengandam la.. Dari baju, makeup, and lain-lain lah ye.
So, the secret is... hari biasa, korang tak payah la makeup sangat, supaya bila on your wedding nanti, makeup sikit pun dah nampak meletopz dah.. Kalau lebih rajin, why not you practice and practice and practice, and do your own bridal makeup. Aku ni cakap banyak-banyak pasal wedding, balik mau kena bash ni..haha..
my dream bridal makeup. as if no makeup!
And, do you notice, culture mana yang ada makeup lebih-lebih ni? Indians, Arabs, Pakistan... Chinese and the western usually go for very earthy and natural look (google Bridal makeup for proof). Kalau bahasa orang kampung kita tu, makeup nye udah rupe burung jampuk.. Kalau daily makeup macam burung jampuk - on wedding day, nak makeup macam mana lah pulak.. Kalau I jadi makeup artist I punnnn fenings you..
Baru semalam I saw a lady nak pergi his brother's wedding - makeup and rambut dia macam dia pulak yang kahwin kan, tapi dah culture diorang berhias time wedding.. Kita tengok je la kan..
Ok lah, akhir kata... Selamat jaga kecantikan kulit! Usaha tangga jaya.. Kalau terigin nak merasa rebonding, boleh calling-calling.. nak iklan kat ruang iklan segan kan... :-p
