Forceline Enriquez-MontesinosMonday, May 12, 2008
Finally! I finally got hold of Forceline's wedding photos! I love her to bits, she's one of the sweetest people I have met. She's based in the United States, so I basically coordinated with her via email and through her wedding planners.
When I met her a few days before the wedding for her hair and makeup trial, my first impression was that of a classic Filipina beauty. I was hoping she would go for a little more "unconventional" with the makeup since she had great lips. I loved the shape of her lips! When we talked, she told me all about her color motif which was rich, deep red. I was thrilled when she said "yes!" when I asked her if we could do red lips! Hehehe...
Forceline has a beauty mark over her lip (a mole) which I refused to cover! Hahaha! I wanted every bit of her beauty to show, not the makeup! Tony, my favorite bridal hairstylist also accentuated the shape of her face by doing a classic up-do (but not a bun).
And finally, making the makeup last... I didn't want to use a whole lot of powder on Forceline's face since she was going to have an outdoor reception. Even though Fernwood had air conditioned venues, she would still be sweating because the venue was huge! So I had to consider the lights, the water mist effects, humidity, and how many air conditioners were there to cool the place. I wanted her to look dewy and fresh, not sweaty and melting!
So after finishing her makeup, I set her makeup with a cooling makeup tint (that I got from Sephora) which mattifies the T-Zone area, but makes the rest of the place dewy and supple.
