Let me admit that I'm very very fussy about makeup. I don't like wearing it too much, so when I do, I like it nude and natural. I rasa makeup ni tak patut menukar wajah sama sekali.. it should only enhance your natural looks.
So my quest in looking for a makeup artist (MUA) was quite challenging. Not everyone can do natural looking makeup, because memang susah. Lagi senang buat makeup tebal daripada makeup natural. I spent literally months picking a MUA that I was okay with. And I could only judge based on their online portfolios, so it was harder, because pictures can be photoshopped and enhanced and sometimes kalau lighting tak betul, tak cantik pun dalam gambar.
Up to sebulan sebelum the wedding I didn't have a MUA. Belum puas hati. But one day I stumbled upon a certain MUA's blog, and omg I tell you it was instant love!! I e-mailed her, and Alhamdulillah memang rezeki I and rezeki dia, she was free to do my makeup on my wedding day.
She did both my nikah and reception makeup. I didn't have false lashes glued on. I don't like them.. also, I believe that it's haram coz termasuk dalam kategori "menyambung rambut". Here are a few pics, the first one I took from her Facebook page.

So who is the magician behind my transformation from meh to whoa? lol. Bajet je aku kan. Her name is Zatil of Whortleberries Makeup. She's a very patient and friendly lady, I love her to bits. Walaupun I banyak gila tanya dia soalan, dia layan je. And she was gentle with me when she put on the makeup and I appreciate that coz some people just tonyoh sesuka hati.
Her rates are also very reasonable Alhamdulillah, may Allah bless her rezeki. If you want to hire her services, she's contactable at:
