Make-up Ordeal

Some girls look pretty with make-up. Some look better with make-up. Some look different with make-up (both good and bad). And some, like myself, look very very Asian with make-up. My eyes look smaller, my cheek bones higher, and I have an overall look that makes me stereotypically oriental. Maybe I’m in denial and I cannot accept the fact that I’m very oriental looking, but I thought I could hide that with make-up. Unfortunately, it accentuates it.

I decided to do my own make-up for my wedding.

Over the years I’ve learned,

always, always, go with my gut instinct; and my gut tells me to do it myself.
My mirror tells me to do it myself.

I know. But I’m not going to get make-up done for the sake of getting make-up done. It’s not about the money; it’s about how I want to look, and I don’t want to look… unnatural.

I want to feel comfortable to smile, and I want to smile.

That’s all.

  1. I felt the same way (about wanting it natural, not about looking oriental– somehow I doubt I could look Oriental even if I tried…) about my makeup for our wedding last year, and I really don’t have any regrets :) I do love your engagement pics btw.
