I’ve had the pleasure of doing makeup for many Vietnamese weddings but the wedding of Theresa & Phong Tranwas special and fun. Each of their personality’s was definitely prominent as well as their traditional culture for their wedding. As always I bond closely with my clients and Theresa & Phong will always have a special place in my heart. Theresa wanted airbrush on her wedding day and the bridesmaids all received regular makeup. Theresa only request was that I give every bridesmaids a very smoky eye because the girls were all wearing a black dress. To achieve the smoky eye I opt for L’OREAL Paris Cream eye shadow paint in Steely. I kept their skin clean but hightlighted/contoured and shimmer their faces because it was an early morning wedding. The lips, I went with nudes and pinks. Of course I couldn’t forget about the flirty lashes.

My second bride of the day was a glamxurious bride one that luvs makeup (6 different tubes of mascara)…really. She doesn’t wear fake eyelashes because her lashes are really long and full. I was able to be as heavy handed when applying her eye makeup. Darla request were gold, green, and brown eyeshadow with a heavy eyeliner.
My Saturday bride Catherine was a great girl. Her wedding took place at The Woodlands Plantation. Her only makeup request was to give her sexy dark eyes. I told her she hired the perfect makeup artist. Catherine got airbrush makeup because she wanted her makeup to hold up in the humid weather. Because it rained or should I say storm she didn’t have to worry.
I actually enjoyed working with Catherine, very cool chic. Just check out her shoes below.
