In choosing the right wedding photographer in Malaysia, you may consider his/ her skill, style, result, experience, work ethics, reputation, awards received, certification, association, charges, specialization, presentation, whether or not you can work together, ask some samples of the full collection not only the selected ones.

I have compiled the various comments gathered from actual discussions of brides or grooms to be and related websites/ printed material. With this list, it is easier to identify the photographers (PGs) who are more attractive. If you require more details, leave a comment so I could provide you the information if I have it.

      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" on the right side bar.



      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.com). Yen posted her most recent bride whose wedding happened recently and I already found something that I like! It's a smart strategy to keep the official website updated.

      The first page usually shows the MUA's latest jobs

      Study the before-after images.
      The front hair created angles to even out the facial shape.
      Yen increased the depth and dimension of the bride's eyes by application of darker shades near the lids.

      What a glamorous transformation! From the narrow-eye Chinese features to mixed-Asian look (the one on the right) with dazzling eyes that pop... 

      Pre-wedding photo-shoot style that matches the outfit and theme

      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.

      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 hair style.
      • 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:
      #cascadinghair

      • 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.

      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
      wedding reception blog yenmakeup eyes

      You can find many other info related to the MUA's reputation and skills. For example, Yen is now officially one of Malaysia's top 10 bridal makeup artists by Tally Press based on accumulation of public votes.

      Yen is meticulously working on the eyes to make them look amazing.
