As promised, I will be doing a series of Bridal Makeup Looks from different cultures and first, I am going to start off with my hometown – Hong Kong.

Hong Kong brides like to keep the look natural and light, especially during the day.

The look is very soft and feminine and you will rarely see any dark smoky colors or harsh lines on the eyes. Instead, a lot of soft, shimmery pastels are used. Some colors to really bring out brown eyes are pink, lavender, minty green, light blue and silver. A long-lasting eyeliner, an eyelash curler and a waterproof mascara are a must. You can also use false lashes for the day but remember to pick a pair that lengthens without being too over the top. Lining your lower lashes with an off-white/beige pencil will also make your eyes pop.

To create a healthy flush as spotted on Janice Man on the left, try colors like baby pink and soft peaches. Smile big and apply directly onto the apples to create a cute doll look.

When choosing a lip color, you can never go wrong with a medium pink or peach.
