NYX Face Awards Challenge #1: 80s Retro Makeup

Thursday, April 19, 2012

Vote up to 3 times. Click Click Click! ;) 

My idea was to create a WEARABLE 80s look- one without the gag! 
Since most of the people in the contest are non-Asian, I thought I should
try to come up with something different like doing a Kpop inspired look.
Also, many of you have been requesting for me to do a KPOP inspired tutorial in the past
years so I thought doing one of Hyori's looks would kill two birds with one stone. ;) 

Lee Hyori 이효리
Korea's most sought after celebrity!

Styled Shoot #1 is published on GreenWeddingShoes.com!!!

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

My beloved friend Esther Sun (photographer) came up with this project of a styled engagement photo session and asked me to take part in it among other vendors in the wedding industry! BTW, Esther does AMAZING film photography, not just digital! I heard she's booked straight through fall for wedding day photography, but check out her website for contact info and more.  

It was so much fun and although there were only selected photos that were published on the site, you can definitely see all of the creative collaboration that took place! From flowers to stationary, hair, makeup (by me), and videography! Don't forget to watch the amazing video of behind-the-scenes action! 

Minta is definitely one of my favorite models to have worked with (in two different shoots now). 
She brings so much positive energy to the shoot every time! 

This is a first of many more to come indeed… 

Wanna know a secret?
They are a real couple, 
hence all the super natural kissy kiss scenes. ;)
