All About My Wedding Makeup

Mar 2, 2017,

As I promised before, I’m gonna share my wedding makeup in my blog. Honestly, I still can’t believe I finally did my own makeup on my wedding day, on this Feb 18 & 19.

Ce Oliv, the wedding organizer’s leader used to disagree with me doing the makeup on the day. Not only the wedding day itself is already a tense moment, chances are there might be unpredictable things happens during the preparation and the event itself, so we actually don’t need more uncertainty and surprise here.

Get Into The Trouble

To do your own makeup in your wedding day is a burdenning life choice that one can have. On the day, you have to be prepared to prepare and bring all the makeup stuffs on your own and be sure you didn’t left anything behind. Meanwhile, you have to worry about the other stuff as well, like your dress, nails, hair, accessories, shoes, and any other stuff that hardly fit in the lugage.

And I’m willingly to get into the trouble just because I feel like I really know what I really really want and I’m a detail-oriented type of person. On the other hand, I was never really have my voice when someone get my makeup or hair done and I didn’t really like the end result, aaand I even paid for it. I just don’t want to cry after seeing my makeup done on my wedding day, so I decided to do it on my own, although I actually feel nervous and scared about it.

One thing I always said to my self : It’s true, I’m not an expertise in bridal makeup, but I’m the most frequent person to get my makeup done and I did it right. I know what I do like and don’t, I know how far I want my foundation cover my skin, how would the best brows look like to frame out my face, etc.

Green and Red Light

I still remember when I said to Ce Oliv that I want to do my makeup on my own, my instagram is filled with my makeup photos which actually more like a runway look. She said that it is entirely different makeup from the bridal type of makeup, and that’s strikes me. I realised that I still need to practice my makeup look for the wedding day. And so I make spend more time to create a soft and natural makeup, that’s probably why you found mostly beauty makeup photos on my instagram these past few months.

An then months before the wedding, I met Ce Oliv for a meeting, and she agree to let me do my makeup on my own! I know we can still make our own decision despite the WO’s disagreement, but still, for me the approval make me feel trusted and supported. That’s where I gained my confidence to do what I gotta do. Thank you Ce, to put your very first bet on the bride to do her own makeup. \m/

    • Hi Isye,

      I’m happy if this can encourage you to do what you wanted to. After the wedding, I’m sure that a dream wedding isn’t about living up people expectations and follow what the crowds did, it’s about fulfilling your dream dan your desire. Trust me, there will be so many different opinions about anything from anyone. Don’t let it into you, you can take it as a consideration tho, but above all.. always know how and when to compromise. Because at the end, what really matter is the ones you love, your spouse and the family(s). I wish you all the best on your preparation :*

  • OMG you are so brave to do your makeup on ur wedding day by your own.. AMAZING … And you looks so feminine and pretty at the end..

    even we dont know each other (me, just someone who admire ur makeup as always) yet.. im so proud of you ciiii..

    Happy wedding btw
