I had my hair and makeup trial this morning and I absolutely lovet it! Paul was great all I asked for is a french roll, sat on the seat and left everything up to him. I didn't tell him what kind of makeup I wanted I just let him do what he fancied basically. He didn't ask me either, come to think of it. I am very happy with both. Thank you so much Siew for recommending him!

Before shot - a particularly bad one, just woke up after only 6 hours of sleep. Completely sans makeup.

I thought it looked very natural. Still looked like me but a much better version smile.gif. I loved what he's done to my eyes, just made them pop without being overdone. I still look like me. I like the lipgloss but more as an everyday colour. I'm on the lookout for something deeper.

I love my hair! It's exactly how I wanted it to look. Someone said I could do with less pearls. I agree. What do you think?

Just gorgeous, Katya.

Love love love love love the hair.

I would prefer less pearls. They detract from the simple beauty of the french roll.

Timeless and elegant. Bravo!

H2b thinks it looks a bit flat at the back and should have more volume. I think that depends on how long my hair is. And he wants me to get a haircut rolleyes.gif.

Eeek! I spot a double chin!

Thanks Vik. I watched SBS' yearly broadcast of Vienna Symphony Orchestra and the ballerinas had their hair in french rolls with the pearl pins. Just gorgeous. I don't think they had as many.

The makeup and hair looks gorgeous. I agree a few less pearls would look a little better.

I can see why you are so happy with him biggrin.gif

3 hours later in black and white

The fringe has been a bit windswept. Paul did say it will stay better when it's longer.

I love B&W photos. Do you think I look washed out in B&W? I really think I need a deeper lipgloss.



10 hours later with freshly applied lippy
IPB Image

This lip colour is a bit strong I think but I just wanted to get an idea

B&W version of dark lippy
IPB Image

10 hours later close up of eye makeup. I forgot to take a close up when it was still fresh.
IPB Image

That's all.

I'm sure you're all sick of my face by now. I will only leave the photos up for a few days. Honest opinions welcome.

P.S. I am having a morning wedding with a lunch reception.

Stunning!

I agree - less pearls and a darker lip colour.

B&W does not wash you out - you look gorgeous in both B&W and colour. I wish I looked that good after 6 hours sleep & with no makeup on! biggrin.gif

Hi Brookster. I made the veil myself. I purchased 3m of tulle from a bridal fabric store, the nylon invisible thread from Lincr@ft and the clear haircomb from a $2 shop. Cost me $30 all up.

I think it looks amazing, you have the most stunning complexion! I agree about the eyes popping out, it's the first thing I noticed.

I also agree about a bit more colour on your lips. The black and white shots don't wash you out, in fact I think they make you look more polished and classic which suits your hairstyle......talking about hair styles, I would tend to agree with your friend and have less pearls.

Thanks for sharing, I'm a sucker for piccies!

ETA - I would make sure that your fringe doesn't separate like in the first b&w shot....I think it ruins the sleek sophisticated look you are going with at the back...JMO...looks a little messy and incomplete. I noted that you said Paul picked up on this.

Katya you're a stunner! I love it all, I wouldn't change a thing. Sorry that isn't very constructive tongue.gif PS you remind me of Michael Klim's wife, the balinese princess (can't remember her name) cool.gif

I like the darker lippie, it really suits you but doesnt make the look appear too made up, still looks very natural.
