I have been searching for a good makeup artist who does Asian faces well, in the Philly area (or nearby) that is affordable. I looked on some of the older threads but most of the names I saw were out of NY and a bit more expensive. Any Philly Asian brides or bride-to-bes have any good suggestions?
I don’t generally wear heavy makeup so I’m going for a mainly natural, fresh clean look.

Hi Snuggles! I just replied your email/message regarding the makeup artist for my wedding Can you tell me how I can send you pictures? I don’t think I would like to post/share it publicly, but I’d be happy to send it to you privately!!! Susan did an awesome job with my wedding day makeup and I’m sure you will love her!!! If you want to see a bunch of her work – try googling her to find her site (susan lim makeup artist). Good luck!

@savygirl: I am also an Asian bride in Philly looking for an Asian MUA. I’d love to hear more about Susan Lim. I tried to check out her website, but it’s under construction. Do you have photos from your wedding that you’d feel comfortable sharing with me? I’d really appreciate it! Thanks!

Ditto with everyone else! I’m also looking for a MUA in Philly (or anyone who is willing to travel) who is well versed with Asian faces. I know it’s cutting it close to my date but if anyone has any recommendations, it would be much appreciated!
On that note, has anyone tried going to the hair salons in Chinatown to have a makeup trial? There is also a new Asian brial boutique that opened up near 10th and Vine. I believe it’s called Wedding 360. Has anyone been there yet?
@mandmb: Susan’s website should be up and running now. Unfortunately, she is already booked for my date so it’s back to the search.

Me too! I live 50 miles north of Philly… looking for a MUA for wedding in June 2012! Anyone knows anyone? Please~
Mandmd, snuggles, and Jurai who did you end up using?
I went to Susan’s website but she said travel to VA/DC/MD… not sure about PA…

I’m curious to know who everyone went with! I’m getting into crunch time to figure out hair & makeup for my October wedding.
