I am desperately looking for a makeup artist who has experience working with east asian women (Korean, Japanese, & Chinese). Heavy makeup looks terrible on me, and everytime someone applies techniques that look great on other girls, it just doesn’t look right on me. I was super happy with Susan Lim, but she’s working out of Haymarket, VA and with a $45 per mile/roundtrip charge, in addition to $150 for traditional makeup, there’s no way I can afford that 🙁
Sooo…it’d be a GREAT relief if any bees have suggestions/recommendations!!! TIA!

I had my wedding in Philly (it’s extremely hard to find someone who is exceptional in Asian features), but Susan Lim was worth every penny and the quality of work speak for itself. I never felt so beautiful and it was the BEST decision to hire her. I definitely would recommend her. Plus, if you do your research extensively, you will see that her pricing is very reasonable and comparable. I had one artist whom I had a trial with, rate for her makeup service was at $300 and travel fee was $1/per mile. Considering that if you are spending a lot of money on a great photographer, wouldn’t you want a makeup and hair person just as great, to help you look flawless in photos? Just sayin…

Ashley from Glam Bridal Beauty. I haven’t had a trial yet, but she seems really nice! She worked on my friend (who is Asian) and did a great job!
