A 'Fairy'-tale Wedding

Early this month, I got the honor of making a dear friend, Fairy, more beautiful than she already is on her very special day. It was my very first experience doing bridal make-up and it's one that I'll remember forever. Hey, it's not everyday that you get to sit at the 'meja pengantin' (bride's table)! Got extra prawn and fish, you know.... I was overwhelmed with pride and 'awwww....' moments that night.

Congratulations Fairy!

When you gonna have babies? :D

Read on for close-up pictures of the makeup as well as description of items used. Link to the tutorial as well!
