Punjabi/Sikh Wedding By The Beach Video

Hi Peeps,

As promised here is a video montage of the Punjabi beach wedding as promised. Enjoy!

Punjabi Wedding on the beach

This was my first Punjabi wedding and I feel very blessed to have been part of the weeklong celebrations! The week culminated to a beautiful beach wedding in a beautiful beach resort. I am also told that this was the first Punjabi wedding ceremony on the beach in all of Malaysia and it was truly a magical day which I will not forget for a very very long time :) 

The early morning started with the beach holy ceremony and right after that was the receiving the Groom  ceremony in a hall nearby. The lunch reception then followed which was a very elegant yet casual affair as it was on the beach. The groom had arranged for live music and lots of dancing. He even made a song for the lovely bride! He and his talented friends then gave a superb rock concert right in the middle of the beach :) 

I will post the video montage in a while so you guys can have a peep on what happened the whole week :)

As this was a full day outdoor affair, the makeup has to be long wearing so I used waterproof makeup. Hair also will pose a big problem, especially on the beach because humidity and the heat will make hair goes frizzy and difficult to style. Fortunately, the bride has beautiful skin to work with and I just need to pamper it with lots of moisture before makeup so that it won't go dry as the day wears out. 

My bride loves to have her hair down, which she has for all the wedding events with exception to the morning holy ceremony. A traditional updo was called for not only to give good support for the heavily beaded veil but also because the high and thick shape of the bun will give a much fuller and beautiful finish to the rich veil. Can you believe that is all her natural hair in that bun? 

I wish you both and your families much love and blessings from the heaven!

Makeup Makeover - Personal Makeup Class

Latest personal makeup class with Fatihah, her mom and Sabrina last month. Fatihah and Sabrina were both my clients for their engagement and wedding. I encouraged them to use their own cosmetics as they have fantastic products and colours which they got for their hantaran and it's such a waste not to use them.

All the after pictures here reflect their own work. After the knowledge, the most important thing is practice..so I hope those of you who came for my classes will continue to practice by putting on makeup when you go out and always open to learn new things to improve yourself :)

To all my students : Thank you and keep in touch! I always love spending time with makeup and positive people, teaching and learning new things from each other!

Celebrity Makeup : Patrizio Buanne Showcase in KL Hilton Sentral

When Elaine from Faces called me to see if I could do makeup for Patrizio Buanne, I asked Patrick who? He is not that famous yet in Malaysia I guess but he does have a loyal (and royal) stream of fans here..after meeting and working with him, and listening to him at the showcase, I have much respect for this hardworking entertainer. I wish him all the best in conquering Asia and seriously think Warner Music should do more promotions and PR for him here..

Here's something for you to enjoy :) If you're a fan or not, just share what you think about this guy..some of my friends are totally crazy about him (coz of his looks or voice?, i think both..he he) while another camp just think he's just so-so..as for me, the fact that he is a hardworking man who takes his music very seriously and make it look so effortless i'd give him two thumbs up :)
