Small world story: As with most of my clients who are based abroad, they usually know about me through the Internet. Donna is based in Toronto, Canada. When Donna posted her wedding photos in Facebook, I was quite surprised when Kayan, another bridal client of mine who’s based in Guam, commented on the photos on how they both got the same makeup artist, which is of course moi. Turns out they were high school classmates and unbeknownst to each other, they both booked me for their respective weddings! Their weddings were just 5 days apart. I just love how the Internet connects everyone together and how it really makes the world really really small, parang tatlong kembot lang ang Guam and Canada from Philippines! =)
Now on to Donna’s hair and makeup. She wanted a natural look, but wanted me to put mint green eyeshadow as the base color for her eyes so that it’s somewhat coherent with the motif, which is light green and maroon. That’s one way of tweaking the natural look, adding a pop of color. For the hair, she wanted Korina Sanchez’s hairstyle during her wedding, which is a soft, elegant bun.
Here’s her before photo:
