The first few times I did Abu’s makeup was way back 2007. I was just studying basic makeup artistry then in Center for Aesthetic Studies and she was one of my ever willing guinea pig-slash-model during classes. I really have a soft spot for my supportive friends who have helped me start out. To make her even more awesome in my eyes, Abu and his husband Bede brought me to Korea for their engagement shoot!
Out of all the times I did her makeup, my fave was the look I did for her wedding, hands down. I made sure that it’s not too pa-sweet but not too fierce either; just something right in between to reflect her personality. Check out the awesome photos below:

A lot of people ask me if I can airbrush myself. Of course! I was also a guest at the wedding, so I squeezed in my own makeup quickly.
No less than the bride helping me out fit in the gown I borrowed from Popo Go!
