i’m Asian & from LA, and i’m getting married in Santa Barbara (quasi-destination). i am having the most difficult time trying to find 1. makeup artist who can do Asian makeup.. i.e. monolid issues, AND 2. who will travel to SB or is based out of SB/ventura. i’ve decided that the easiest way is to find someone based out of SB or Ventura. i’ve already tried the SB makeup artists who are highly recommended on other forums, and they didn’t cut it…! i’ve considered DIY or asking a friend to do it, and i’d rather just hire a professional. anybody know of any up & comers, or anyone who is not on the forum radar? sorry for the long post…

Jayypeeee ~ I have a makeup trial in 2 weeks (in Santa Barbara); while I’m not sure that she specializes in Asian makeup, I will let you know how it goes if you are interested. My wedding is in 2 months, in Santa Barbara, and I need to finalize my wedding day makeup person soon. If this one doesn’t work out I’ve got a couple others lined up, so hopefully between us we can find someone good

If you haven’t found a makeup artist yet let me know. I am a makeup artist in Ventura county and guess what?? I am part Asian myself and have done Asian makeup before, so it’s not a problem for me.

if you PM me I can give you the number to my makeup artist. She travels between california and nyc, so tell me if that works.

I’m getting married in Ventura County and have been using http://www.weddingcelebrations.com. It’s been a huge help to me – fantastic local vendors. You metion you’re getting married in Santa Barbara, this site covers SB too. They have some great makeup artists who travel to and from and probably charge less than in SB. Good luck!
