You can take an asian specific class at a Mac Store (not the mac counter at a department store) If you are worried about your face looking shiny…get a good chammomile mask and use it once a week, and the day before your wedding.  Just dont try anything new 2 weeks before your wedding…and I mean NOTHING!

Where do you live?  If you live near a MAC store see if they will let you register, some classes are for Professionals only, if you find a class and they wont let you in you can use my number.  So call first!  (lest they recognise you) But what city are you in?

For asian brides I make sure to use the E3 technique when it comes to contouring.


Use bronzer with an angel blusher brush and sweep from the temple >> to under your cheek bone >> to your jawline to create an "E" with the left side of your face and a "3" with the right. (=.=;;; i guess if you’re doing it to yourself, it’s the other way around)



You can use a specific highlighting powder like the PRESCRIPTIVE MAGIC POWDER or a sheer shimmery eye shadow to highlight the following: 

– bridge of nose

– above your cheek bone

– above your eyebrow (only the 1st half of it… the part closer to the middle of your face)

– under your eyebrow

– and chin

and VOILA!!! HOLLYWOOD CELEB TRICKS revealed to the everyday girl~~~~~


good luck~ and hope this was helpful see below for some inspirations

I’m sticking to a simple, romantic look. There isn’t many Asians in my town and I don’t trust make-up artists that haven’t worked with Asian eyes (I’ve been burnt before and I’m not about to gamble on it). I’m going to do my own make-up, I found a video that’ll be my base:

Does anyone have inspirational makeup pics?  I’d love to see them.  Here are some that I found online.  I’m not sure which look I like the most…
