Top Five Wedding Make-Up Artists

22 August, 2011

Our resident wedding expert, Sandra from Simply Peachy wedding blog, is back – and this week, she’s rounding up her top picks of the best make-up artists for your big day!

It’s your wedding day and you want everything to look picture perfect… including yourself! You’ve spent thousands of dollars booking the best photographer and buying the prettiest of gowns – the last thing you want is for all that to go down the drain thanks to bad hair and make up. No amount of Photoshop will fix that!

Choosing the right make-up artist will make or break your wedding day look. It’s important that your make-up artist doesn’t try to change the way you look but instead, looks to enhance and express your beauty in the best possible way that you feel comfortable with. I mean, do you really want to look back at your photos and not recognise yourself?! So here are my top five make-up artists in Hong Kong for your big day.
