Keeping Up With the Trends | Penny Long Makeup

2 Sessions from RM900 | The advantages of having graduated from a makeup academy abroad are the makeup artist (MUA) gets the exposure and learns techniques different from what is available locally. Penny not only took courses in Malaysia, she also went to Taiwan to further her skills, in particular airbrush, the latest hair grooming, and makeup techniques with fusion of Taiwanese and Korean trends. The practical workshops and interactions allow the students who consist of different cultural background to develop together. I believe in that way, you can pick the best parts the knowledge and apply it to the makeup scene here.

The way a bridal makeup and hair styling is different from a normal for instance dinner, party makeup is that the former is more intense but in a natural manner. The bride has to stand out from the crowd. If done incorrectly, the makeup will go out of control and it ends up looking too dense. Penny understands the need of a Malaysian bride to look like a million bucks, also elegant at the same time. She is good at applying the right style to suit the individual comprehensively with the right intensity.

When searching for a good MUA, always look for one who strives to achieve the best results taking into consideration the bride's requests. Penny is someone who works hard continuously to better her skill. She takes feedback constructively, positive or negative ones. Check out her FB page, you will see something that you like!

Akma Sri Andaman Bridal, Taiping Perak

For bridal services such as makeup & styling, gown, pelamin, decoration, canopy, catering, etc in Taiping Perak, look for Akma Sri Andaman.

The makeup done by Kak Akma was good. The bride received lots of positive comments. Looking gorgeous is every bride's right, so make sure you go for the makeup artist who knows how to glam you up beautifully. The makeup also lasted the entire wedding day thanks to the special finishing protector she sprayed on the face. Unfortunately the gown that the bride picked could not be used at the last moment because it was torn by the previous bride who wore it and she had to select another one. Imagine how panicked she would be! Shouldn't the gown be returned earlier for cleaning?

The gown which was picked in the last minute was a tad too big and long.

The dais or pelamin after being decorated with fresh flowers, looked classy and absolutely incredible. The bride let her Mak Andam, Akma Sri Andaman take full responsibility of decorating the pelamin and they did not disappoint. Though it comes with an expensive price tag, the result was excellent.

Untuk bertunang ni hani ambil pakej make up+pelamin+baju dengan Akma Sri Andaman di Taiping. Tentang make up, ramai yg kata ok...cantik...ye ker??? hani mmg request kak akma  yg make up kan hani, xnak pembantu dia...yang hani perasan lepas siap make up, kak akma akan sembur sesuatu mcm spray la, tp xtau nama apa..lupa nak tanya..make up akan tahan lama...xcair lansung walaupn dah penat berposing gambar outdoor..btul la, smpai ke mlm.

Pada asalnya hani dah pilih baju ni...tp last minit terpaksa cancel baju ni terkoyak sikit sebab ada pengantin pakai sebelum hani tu dah terpijak kainnya...hukhuk frustnyer !!! so, Kak Akma akan bawa baju yang lain...serius masa tu rasa risau jugak.

Precious Bridal Galley SS2 PJ

Positive feedback: SA was very helpful during gown selection, assisted in finding the suitable gowns. Satisfied with the MUA and PG, went with their professional ideas. The PG and MUA worked hard continuously even though it was raining when shooting outdoor. Photographer Mr Chin and assistant were very patient, dedicated and funny. MUA was punctual. No rushing or pushing from the SA to buy more photos during photo selection. Experience with this bridal shop has been good, got a good package deal from the wedding fair.

Negative feedback: Gown selection is limited, especially outdoor evening gown. Took 5 hours just to choose 4 gowns. The shop did not call to confirm the appointments, the client had to call the day before to confirm. Improvement needed in this area. Shooting appointment was delayed twice.

KNOT Concept
Precious Bridal's KNOT concept photography is based on a special theme or a story that represents the couple. Was there a scene in the movie that you've watched which you wished you were in it? Or there's something that you always wanted to do but have not got the chance to do it yet? Now you can with KNOT by Precious. I first saw it during my cousin in-law's wedding. It's really unique.

Apr 2015
The price was within our budget (RM 4688) and reasonable for the gazillion things bundled inside the package. The staffs are very friendly and they were supportive. The photos taken are really beautiful and they do not look too much edited too. Lastly, the shop have a decent number of outfit choices even for our body size (both my fiancé and me are bulkier than the average :)), and they patiently let us try their collections to match what we want the most.
The makeup artist did such stunning makeups and hairstyles for both of us. She was really gentle and she asked a lot if we had any preferences or requests. 

Jul 2014
MUA Sharon: She was spot on with the hairstyles, made me looks like Hong Kong actress in their glamour form. Really thumbs up for her. As for the makeup, she went for a natural look with emphasis on my big eyes. Yes, my super big eyes that I never had before. LOL. Photographer Dic: He gave directions and he knows what he want to achieve in the photos. He took time to understand what was our requirements and what we wanted to achieved in photos. A very hyper guy and has lots of ideas. I love all the photos that Dick had taken- FUN yet ROMANTIC. All were quite natural and sweet. He managed to capture the "FEEL" that we wanted.

Bridal Gallery of Ever After here, EA has changed to Precious end of 2009. So far, my experience is good.
1.I am happy with the package I get, RM2988 + RM500 voucher + PM session AD photographer, got it in the fair :)
2.The gown not much choices, especially the outdoor night gown. You can upgrade the gown. But the BA helped me a lot in finding the gown that suit me, I took 5 hours just to choose 4 gowns ;p
3.The gowns do not fit me at all during the PS, luckily the aunty manage to fix it immediately before the PS.
4. I am satisfied with the MUA and photographer, totally leave to their professional as I am not good in these, so I just follow whatever idea they gave ;p
They never call to confirm on the appointments, I myself will call them up the day before to confirm it. This is the part that I think they have to improve to serve better.
Aug 2012
We opted for a rather economical package for our pre-wedding photo shoot. Actually, our appointment for shooting was delayed twice, firstly few dresses were unavailable and the second time was our photographer need to go overseas. The make up artist was punctual. Make up took bout an hour plus and we had our first shot outdoor in Titiwangsa. Mr Chin is our photographer. Very patient and funny guy. So is his assistant. Both of them were so dedicated. Wiped endless sweat off my fiancé like a million times. Guide you into every pose.

H&W Studio 3-D Wordings and Artwork

More couples are adopting the "Simple and Nice" concept for their wedding decorations. Sometimes complicated designs may come off as too messy. Wordings for the backdrop for example can be arranged in more unconventional ways using earthy color tones for a rustic or natural feel. Use 3-D letters or artwork to make the words/ graphics stand out. There are many different styles to use them creatively. You may borrow some ideas here:

best day ever

H&W Studio offers two things.
(1) Customization: There are a lot of ready-made decoration materials available in the market, however, they might not suit everyone's needs. H&W is ready to help you out, make whatever fonts or artwork in polyfoam (or EPS Foam) according to your requests.
(2) Convenience: The fabrication of polyfoam can be done by most people at home, but inconveniently (it's so much hassle and time consuming!). H&W offers you the convenience. They "SPEAK" your words, bringing out the message for you.
h&w studio background wordings

Just imagine you could design something on your computer for example the initials of you and your fiancee(e) in special font, characters in other languages, patterns, wedding logo, theme details, special message to your better half, the list goes on. Send the request to H&W Studio, and voilà! you get the 3-D version in polyfoam. This is particularly helpful for (or partial) DIY decoration. You bring in your idea and sketch the layout then let the expert with proper equipments do the difficult part.

Here are some samples, but don't let your creativity stop there.

3d words chinese
Wordings in any languages
big heart
You can use their templates or your own design

Make sure you measure the area at the wedding venue where the artwork is going to be hung. You don't want the wordings to go out of proportion. Get the right measurement and you can start discussing about the details.

Merchant's Lane 美真林 | Photography Location

A modern take on the heritage of Petaling Street, Merchant's Lane is a cafe and restaurant that sees the transversing of local charm and current culture. Getting there is easy enough, but finding the entrance could be a challenge. It is located in an heritage building in Petaling Street. The entrance is next to a stationery shop; Merchant's Lane is on the first floor. The way up the stairs you can see bright sunlight as the ceiling is transparent. The interior is the perfect backdrop for a rustic photoshoot, with rough unpainted walls (eroded wall effect), rattan chairs, stainless steel tabletops and wooden floors.

The name of the cafe is quite interesting and I always thought is a name when i heard someone mention. ''mei zheng lin'' chinese of of Merchant's Lane. The cafe restaurant is situated at the second level, along the way up the stairs we see dark bright sunlight as the ceiling is transparent.  The buildings here are long and depth inside have several different corner for customers to pick on. Outdoors, indoors, sofa tables etc. I like the natural eroded walls but went there during noon, the sun is just right shinning on top of our head. Can't sit there for long.

Getting there was easy enough, especially on a Friday morning when school's out. I parked the car at a lot across a street, next to a police station. Finding the entrance, however... (Psst, look for the entrance next to a stationery shop; Merchant's Lane is on the first floor.) Pre-war chic, I call it, with rough unpainted walls, rattan chairs, stainless steel tabletops and wooden floors.
