i’m not sure how big your wedding party is. mine’s just me so it’s easy. i’m going to my hairdresser (Hair Espirit, UES). he has stylists that do wedding hair and makeup. i got my hair trial done w/ Celine (touchable down do) and makeup trials with Elissa (more dramatic / glamorous, not the standard pink bridal look) and liked both. try calling them. ask for Saki

 I recommend also looking into JAC Beauty. One of the owners was a weddingbee blogger.

Weejae Joung was my make up artist. She’s based out of Jersey City and NYC. Such a sweet person with great attention to detail. A true artist. She also listens to you and makes you look natural while enhancing your features so you look as beautiful as possible. Reiko did my hair. She’s crazy good with hair. Weejae does hair too but I didn’t do a hair trail with her becauconvinced did such a great job on my side pony. Reiko didn’t wow me with her make up application even though her air brushing techniques were pretty spot on. I didn’t look as plastic as my other trials but I kept on looking for another make up artist who could blend shadows and make use of highlighter blushes. Weejae suggested using regular make up because it looked more natural. The make up forever foundation and nars primer we used glued my make up on my face all day even through 90 degree weather. Most def check her out. Her and her partner made such an impact on my entire bridal party. She helped us sew on loose belts and hems and even closed the door of the bathroom where I was sitting so I could decompress when everyone was stressing me out. Love love her!!!!

So, this is a very old post, but I wanted to comment – I booked Reiko Utsugi for my wedding this past summer for hair and makeup for my mom, sister, and bridesmaids, and she was PHENOMENAL. I wanted to look glamorous for my evening wedding and that was achieved through beautiful eye makeup but I also somehow looked very natural. She was wonderful and is so skilled. I am going to write a more in-depth review for her but if anyone is interested in booking her, DO IT!

Hi! So I just happened to cross apon his old post and actually booked Weejae Joung!!!!! She is KOREAN so she knows the Asian, KOREAN face! Her makeup style is GREAT! She is precise, flawless and natural! I told her what I liked and what I didn’t like and she took those in consideration and worked with me! She changed what I did not like and if she thought her idea was better, she was very gentle and understanding explaining what she thinks is better for me for my wedding day!!! She knows its a special day for you, so she cares and is very personable! I would recommend her if you are looking for an ASIAN makeup arist who knows especially the KOREAN face!!!!
