Mabel is a wonderfully affable and kind lady who does not wear much makeup. For her pre-wedding shoot, she is hoping to express herself in a manner that is most natural and comfortable.
Bearing in mind that she is not used to wearing a lot of makeup, I used minimal products for the shoot to create a look that is very natural and clean. The focus was to blend the base well to accentuate her great skin's luminosity, as well as to give her sweetness and radiance by 'blushing' her cheeks.
Mabel looks so happy and confident in these pictures- which to me is what true beauty is really about! And thanks to Mabel and Hendri for inviting me to be part of their wedding joy. :)
Makeup Tip: If you are planning for a wedding, always have a makeup trial before the special day. A makeup trial session is where you can communicate your needs and wants to the stylist and see the transformation before your very eyes (after all, seeing is believing right? :)). Remember, there's no right answer in makeup, only what's right for you. In Mabel's case, the trial styling session was a great opportunity for us to discuss and test out her comfort level with makeup which eventually helped us to nail down what's best for her.
