FOTD: Asian Bridal Makeup Shoot With Anita

Just wanted to share with you guys a bridal makeup shoot done by my friend Anita when I was in Hong Kong. This was the third time I worked with Anita and once again, I had a total blast (thanks so much Tata!)

Look #1 consisted of a soft neutral eye created by a limited edition eyeshadow quad from Japanese brand Lunasol with peachy cheeks and pink lips. I particularly loved how Anita gave me lots of lashes on the top (the trick is to cut up the strip into smaller pieces then layer them for more intensity) and added in individual lashes on the bottom. She also converted me to a fan MAC Unconventional Blush, a frosty pale lavender color, which was the perfect highlighter for creating a glow on my NC30 skin.

As for Look #2, Anita switched up my hair and added in a red lip with Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro in 503 Red Fushia. It was my first time trying the lip stain and I was really blown away by the intense color and how non-drying and long-lasting it was. Must get my hands on this!
