This is a Tips on Tuesdays - nadnut pretends to act knowledgable and impart some tips. entry under my themed blog posts! For more info about the themed blog posts, do read the entry here.

This is an extremely throwback post. But I decided that since I had all of these pictures, it would be such a waste to not use them!

Background info: These pictures were from my wedding makeup and hair trial before my wedding dinner on 1st March 2014 i.e. #nadskai1314! I've worked with my Makeup Artist Cindy from Colorpots Makeup a couple of times before.

Before your makeup trial, you should discuss with your Makeup Artist aka MUA on your expectations.

Do you have a certain makeup look that you like? I shared with Cindy that I wanted a lighter look for the morning gatecrash and a much heavier look for the dinner.

What are the must-dos and must not-dos for your hair? I don't know if you guys noticed but I hate having my fringe up. Reason being, I do not have a nice hairline and I feel that I have a high forehead. It doesn't look flattering for me with my fringe up. So hell no to fringe being pinned up.

I also wanted two different looks for the morning and evening. I wanted my hair up aka shunu look with the lighter look and my hair down for the evening.

Discuss discuss discuss. I also showed Cindy my gowns and some pictures of makeup looks and hairdos I liked and she shared her opinions on them.

I decided to have my wedding makeup and hair trial the same day as my bridal gowns fitting. Reason being, I wanted to see how the makeup and hair will look with my gowns.

We didn't do the evening makeup trial as Cindy had experimented on darker looks for my ROM previously before and I liked it. Pass! No need sit exam again!

So on the day itself, Cindy did my makeup first before trying out the various hairdos.

Curled hair with morning makeup. My feedback: I felt that the light brown eyeshadow was a bit normal for me (though flattering) as I use that colour normally in my daily makeup. Cindy and I discussed and we agreed on trying pink for my morning look on the day itself. And it worked! We also agreed to only apply falsies on the upper eye for the morning.

She braided my hair and did an undo for me while tucking in the hair. My feedback: I loved the look as it made my hair looks quite voluminous and it wasn't the conventional bun. I also decided that the lip colour was too barbie doll pink for me and we agreed to try a less baby pink gloss.

For the evening look, we discussed on hairstyles that were easy to modify. Most couples do not have much time for their second outfit change and we thought it would be wiser to play it safe.

Cindy braided bits of my hair and tried two variations. One with it loose and the other tied to the side. My feedback: We thought of my outfit and I decided that it being loose suited my off shoulder dress more while having it at the side suited the toga second march in dress. Loved this hairdo and approved it immediately!

For the second march in, we went for something simpler.

Cindy twisted my hair into a few loops and tied it at the side for my second march in hairdo. My feedback: I requested for more hairspray as I felt that my fine hair could get a bit frizzy and messy at the end.

We also discussed on hair colours for the wedding, what would suit my skin tone and what wouldn't. Whether I should trim my hair or fringe. She suggested that I had my hair layered for the wedding.

Tadah!

I think it looked good during my fitting!

At the end of the day, my makeup lasted! No smudges at all!

I super love working with Cindy! She also reminded me on some tips she had imparted to me for my ROM back then.

-Do not wash your hair the day of your trial / actual makeup day.
-Do not put on any leave in serum the night before
-Bring your skincare regime but do not put in on. The MUA will help you with it. Sometimes the moisturiser might counter effect her ampoules
-Have enough sleep!

I was chatting with Yutakis one day and talking about photoshoots when he asked why I had not posted my pictures from the pre-wedding shoot I had in Korea. Oops! Guilty!

I took hundreds of pictures but here were the final few that we selected!

Personally, I thought the editing was a bit too fair but they convinced us that it is their style of editing. In any case, it was a fun experience. I actually wanna do another shoot (not in Korea lah. $$$) but a thrash the dress session. Would be fun!

As mentioned in my previous post, here is my final photolog of #nadskai1314!

Continuing from the previous post… We snuck away for a quick outfit change after the second course.

Usually what happens is that the couples would have a rather tight time changing outfits and a quick touch up. Makeup and hair, that is.

The morning gatecrash video will be showed at this time while the bride and groom get ready outside of the ballroom for their march in. At this time, none of us had seen the video. We peeked in and watched the video too. :p

Gotta love the expressions captured by our photographers!

Ignore the ass. We swopped places here as we thought to show each "side" our "side".

Although this was a blur pic, I really like this! Shows how colourful our wedding was!

We were then invited up on stage for the champagne toast.

Pointing to where the cork should "hit".

Why can't I be more glamourous at my wedding? #unglamnad

We then invited our families, the brothers, sisters and close friends up on stage for the toast.

Naughty Herbert asked us to kiss till the final YAMSENG was completed. And boy, was it a long one. The Yamseng that is.

And oh boy, the time to say our speech.

We didn't prepare ANYTHING at all. Totally winged it. I remembered saying something wrong 😡 About my parents always supportive of all of my boyfriendS. Oops. I rectified it immediately by saying of only him. :p

I'll be posting the table to table pics on Facebook but here are two of my favourite ones! Mainly cos it was two of our biggest group of friends!

The barflies.

The biker gang.

In a blink of an eye, the wedding was over. Together with our families, we shook hands with our guests and exchanged pictures & hugs.

Thanks everyone who spared the time to attend our little celebration!

And now… time to spam the honeymoon pics! If anyone needs tips on planning your wedding, let me know!
