I’ve found everyone here so helpful that I figure I would post for some advice. Does anyone have a recommendation for someone in the Boston area who does Asian makeup well? I’ve looked into the more popular artists and IMO, they really don’t know what to do for Asians. I’d prefer someone who is willing to travel to the hotel that I’m getting married at. Thanks!

- Wedding: June 2008 - St. Catherine of Genoa, Jin Asian Cuisine Restaurant
I’m in Boston (and Asian!), and I used Lypor* for both my hair and make-up and I LOVED her – she travels too (she came to my parent’ house). I wrote a post about my trial here, and I thought she did an even BETTER job on my wedding day. I’ve been writing my recaps, so you can look through my wedding pictures or just see a little bit of Lypor in action here, while I was getting ready. I highly recommend her! If you have any other questions. Let me know! I’d be happy to help!
*Lypor’s site only works in IE.

I got my make-up done by Helen Fong of Makeovers by Helen.
She traveled to my hotel, and the make-up came out great! Everyone complimented on how natural but enhanced I looked.

I am newly engaged and came across this website. I didn’t even know it existed! I was doing some research here on some makeup artists who do great work with Asian skin tones and noticed someone mentioned, Helen Fong of Makeovers by Helen. It just so happened she did my sister’s makeup for her 2005 wedding, along with 6 bm. We all looked wonderful and the makeup lasted well all through the night! When I am ready to have my trial for my own wedding, I am definitely going to contact Helen as well!

I was so lucky to have found these two talented artists for my wedding day:
I used Jennifer Traub for my makeup: http://www.jennifertraub.com She is incredibly talented and knows Asian features very well. She can literally do any look you want. She is from Korea and currently does a lot of movie sets in the US. I went back for a makeup lesson, and my friend went for a makeover. She is fantastic and super nice.
For hair, I used Carol Cho at Vanessa Bridal in Natick, MA. http://www.v-bridal.comShe has a great eye, and recreated a hair-do I showed her of Angelina Jolie at a red carpet event. She modified it to suit my features and it was perfect! Carol is from Taiwan and used to do hair and makeup for celebrities. I didn’t try her makeup so I can’t comment on it. Carol also cut my hair before the wedding and it was great. I will be going back for another cut. Carol is very patient and very punctual!
I can’t recommend them both enough!!
