Makeover by Red Glow

I never thought I would wear bridal makeup again, now that I'm married (with a baby). But when Red Glow invited me for a makeover, I jumped at the chance. I miss being a bride, and the closest thing I can do to be a bride is to get a bridal makeup! ;p

The whole makeover session took about 1 1/2 hours. The best part of any makeover - besides the heavenly strokes of brush - is when you look at your own reflection in the mirror, appreciating the magic touch of the makeup artist. My makeup was mostly done by Kak Najwa, and touched up by Kak Ina. They are the makeup artists of Red Glow. I was given a pair of gray contact lens to wear like most brides and OMG, I almost didn't recognize myself. Can you recognize me?

Altho it was fun trying on a different eye color, I think I look better in natural colored contact lens (dark brown or black) bcoz... well, I look more like myself. Now let's have a closer look at my makeup. Excuse the un-photoshopped pics, people. Please don't focus on my un-flawless face. Instead, look at the color of my lips. I so love the color! I have been trying to find a lipstick in this color, but none looks as pweety as this. If I'm not mistaken, Kak Ina mixed 3-4 colors of lipsticks to get this exact color. Niceeee... Tapi saya malas la nak mix banyak2 color.

And look at my eyes! It looks bigger and erm, can I say kind of dolly? Eye has always been my favorite part when it comes to makeup bcoz how you shade your eyes can make a big difference to your look.

Like most makeup artists, Red Glow uses lots of MAC makeup along with Clinique, Loreal, Shu Uemura, The Body Shop, Estee Lauder and lots more.
