Cindy and Kijoon's Wedding!

What: Cindy and Kijoon's Wedding
When: Aug. 16, 2008
Where: Berkeley

Makeup application in process!
FYI - I did not end up doing Cindy's hair...just the makeup. Her friends did a fantastic job in creating the pinned back loose curls look! (Scroll down for the finished look).

I love this pictures of Cindy. Even though I had not completed the look, you can really see how relaxed and calm she was just hours before her wedding.

This had to be one of the top memorable experiences while doing Cindy's makeup. It was quite fun, seeing her mom and aunties come in and check out the bride as she was getting her makeup done. It was exciting to see them involved and happy. Cindy is really blessed to have family that care so much about her :)

Here's the Bride and I after hair and makeup! Beautiful and natural!

Although I was unable to stick around to witness the wedding, here are a couple of teaser shots taken by their professional photographer (Jessie Cho Photography).

Yay! Here's a link to the "Day of" photos for Cindy and Kijoon's wedding if you would like to see more:

Congratulations Cindy and Kijoon!


Yelped Again! :)

Bao is such a beautiful person on the inside and out. Very warm and so fun to talk with. She found me through Yelp, and boy, was I glad she did! I loved working with her and hope she enjoys the wedding she's attending!

Melissa and Danny's Hawaiian Wedding!

Oh Hawaii (*sigh*) just the thought of that paradise brings back the warm and cozy feelings of beautiful sunsets, swaying palm trees, postcard beaches and pina coladas...and the most magical wedding event ever! You guessed it, my friend Lissa's big day.

The setting for the beautifying session:

Other important facts: Hot. Humid. Hot. Humid. Hot. Humid. Hot.

Congrats Danny and Lissa! You glowing couple! God bless and best wishes for a lifetime of fond memories and laughter.


First Referral

About a month ago, I had the wonderful opportunity to do a makeup (and hair!) trial on Cindy. What was so cool about this client was that she had found me through the referral of one of her bridesmaids who so happened to be a guest at the very first wedding where I did makeup. So neat! Although I don't do hair, we decided to give it a try during the makeup trial anyway. Take a look at the before and afters!

Here are some more detailed pictures of the pulled back "wave" hair look:
