How to Research for Your Bridal Make-up Artist | Yen Makeup

Begin by gathering a list of potential Make-up artists (MUA) in your area, through recommendations or online research. Take note of their work, style, price and reviews. Try to look up wedding sites/ forums like: mywedding.com, malaysiabrides.com, weddingsmalaysia.com, signatureweddins.asia. I did my investigation to get a more comprehensive view regarding the most talked-about and well-received MUAs in the country. Feel free to have a look at the data I compiled. You can do so by selecting "Makeup Artist" and clicking "Search" on the Vendor Listing Search as follows.

From there, browse through their profile, portfolio and images on the official websites or FB pages if available. If it doesn't interest you, move on to the next candidate to save time. Jot down brief remarks about the aspects that attract you. Let me bring you through this process by visiting Yen Makeup's website (http://yenmakeup.blogspot.com). Yen posted her most recent bride whose wedding happened recently in March and I already found something that I like! It's a smart strategy to keep the official website updated.

Great technique to bring out the eyes, Yen gave the bride thicker upper lid lines, blended in several shades of brown up to the creases, filled the sparse brows evenly. The coral shimmer made the skin look dewy.
getting ready

Add some notes and links to remind yourself about the noticeable values about the MUA. For example -

Yen Makeup
  • Hair styles: Unique and nice. Elaborate loose braids weaved elegantly. Love the modern bee-hive hair.
  • Make-up: Use different shades to enhance the eyes. Intense eye make-up that looks natural. Remarkable transformation. 
  • Inspiration for ROM: Delightful makeup. Simple, long gentle curls with mini front pompadour suitable for a more casual yet important day.
  • Hair Inspiration for dinner reception:
nice hair, half up down multi braid

  • Inspiration for pre-wedding photoshoot:
makeup natural
Note to self: To call Yen for a chat at 012-613 7324.

Another very crucial aspect is the reviews about these MUAs. In May 2012, someone recommended Yen's good value make-up package on WEDresearch blog, as she was a satisfied customer. You may doubt the validity of the commenter as she signed it as Anon. In fact we cannot be 100% sure the authenticity of any comments even if they they are written using proper accounts. Throughout the years of finding information online, I tend to not look at the surface but dive into the details, that's what I call "conducting a research" I guess. That will be explained shortly in this post. Sometimes you have to rely on gut-feeling and experience identifying who's telling the truth and who's happy-client-impersonator or a spiteful competitor for that matter. Anon seems legit. She was not over doing it in hard-selling Yen and whatever she mentioned has also been brought up by the others.

good value for money price

Congratulations to CpMoon (iamcpmoon.blogspot.com) on her wedding! She was attracted to Yen because of her hair design, extra nail art service and affordable price. Her hair looked so amazing and real on her wedding that people asked if that was her genuine hair.

CpMoon's comment on Yen's blog

The wedding forum/ sites to go to for feedback are malaysiabrides, mywedding.com and personal blogs. It's nice to know some quick tips to Google search what you want precisely. You can do a website specific search by using the "site:" modifier. Include the ("") to search for an explicit phrase. There are at least two MUAs bearing the name of Yen, the other one is Chew Yen. To exclude the word "chew", just add the (-) sign. If you want the results to show similar words of wedding like nuptial, marriage... use (~) in front. Examples:

site:malaysiabrides.com "yen makeup" -chew ~wedding
site:mywedding.com yen make up artist

10 Elements of Great Wedding Photos

If you ask a photographer what makes a great photo, he/ she might suggest an image that has great composition (rule of thirds, symmetry, framing), captures emotion, unique, leaves something to the imagination, captures detail, has nice perspectives, etc. would look good. However to a non-technical person the photo must be attractive and captures the essence of the wedding. I think great wedding images should contain these elements illustrated by photos taken from WLoon Photography.

1. The expression of the couple being in love. When in love, they look a each other with passion something one cannot pretend. It's more natural if the shot is taken when the bride and groom-to-be do not pose or fake a smile but just enjoy the moment. These photos can help rekindle the romance many years down the road.

2. That special moment. When the moment passes by it's gone forever hence the photographer has to shoot at the right time. Wooi Loon is able to photograph a scene that tells a story beautifully. It takes lots of experience, photography and observation skills to achieve the photo-journalistic outcome on a hectic wedding day when so much is happening simultaneously.

3. Uniqueness. From unique lighting to artistic framing, there are many ways to create an interesting image. The pale color, subtle and artistic effects of the following picture turns the normally mundane face-to-face shot into an amazing and original scene.

4. The environment such as a lovely venue, beautiful structures, the nature, perspectives in good composition. Wooi Loon would go on-site to feel the location and get inspired before the shooting.

5. Creativity always adds a special touch to the photo. Photographer who thinks outside the box can produce far greater images. Getting married should be fun so be creative and bring in the humor, wittiness, playfulness...

6. Portraiture has been an important part of wedding photography. The stunning bride wants her painstakingly done makeup and hair to be shown in the wedding photos. And it's also the perfect time to take a family portrait by a professional photographer. Wooi Loon makes sure that the portraits of the groom, bride, family, friends and groups are taken beautifully.

7. Detail. The details such as of the wedding rings, shoes or decorations are sometimes overlooked as everyone is preoccupied with interactions and activities on the busy day. This wedding bands close-up shot by Wooi Loon creates an attractive scene capturing the detail of the rings with bubbles at the background.

8. Unique color and lighting.

Juxtaposition contrasting colors of the bright umbrella and the dark background. What a pretty sight.

9. People's Emotions. Wedding is the time when a lot of people gets emotional - how happy are the bride and groom the second they're announced husband and wife, the excitement of family and friends witnessing the couple walk down the aisle, and the "wicked" look on the bridesmaids' faces getting ready for the door games, etc.

10. Photo that looks good. Period.

Not only does he capture accurate and high quality photos, Wooi Loon is also someone who is professional and patient. I am sure you wouldn't find so many positive comments about an irresponsible or even a mediocre photographer. From the feedback I got on my website, I am more convinced about the importance of a photographer with integrity, what's more a talented one.

Wooi Loon is a young guys who really in love with photographing. He’s not those photographer that only want to make money from the clients. We listed 5 locations in Penang for the shooting session and he actually go to all 5 locations personally to have the first feeling of the locations. After that he called and meet up with us and discussed on the locations and talked to us. After the discussion we have sort listed 3 locations which are Clan Jetty, China House & Straits Quay.

Favourite Whitney Houston Wedding Songs

American Idol judge Simon Cowell criticized contestants for tackling Whitney's iconic songs without doing justice to the legendary singer. Whitney Houston had one of the greatest voices of all time. In this video she delivered a touching performance of the signature hit "I Will Always Love You" from the movie The Bodyguard (1992). Kevin Costner looked dashing back then, Whitney stunning. It is a lovely film with a tasteful soundtrack and lead single "I Will Always Love You". The single became the best-selling single by a female artist in the US. The song also became a global success, hitting number-one in almost all countries, and one of the best-selling singles of all time with 12 million copies sold.

Whitney Houston and R&B singer Bobby Brown were married on July 18, 1992 on the grounds of Whitney's home in Mendham, New Jersey.

Whitney Houston & Jermaine Jackson - Nobody Loves Me Like You Do

Powered by mp3skull.com
Songwriters: Phillips, Pam; Dunne, James

Like a candle burning bright
Love is glowing in your eyes
A flame to light our way
That burns brighter everyday
But now I have you
Nobody loves me like you do

Like a leaf upon the wind
I could find no place to land
I dreamed the hours away
And wondered everyday
Do dreams come true
And nobody loves me like you do

What if I'd never met you
Where would I be right now
Funny how life just falls in place somehow
You've touched my heart in places
That I never even knew
'Cause nobody loves me like you do

I was words without a tune
I was a song still unsung
A poem with know rhyme
A dancer out of time
But now there's you
Baby, nobody loves me like you do

What if I'd never met you
Where would I be right now
Funny how life just falls in place somehow
You've touched my heart in places
That I never even knew
Nobody loves me, nobody loves me
Nobody loves me like you do
Nobody loves me like you do
