Makeup/Hair: Sophie & Jessica

 Jessica (left) is a Chinese while Sophie (right) is a Cambodian. They are very friendly and approachable. I always feel blessed to meet and work with people like them.

  I was very excited to meet Sophie in person! She came across to my website while looking for a makeup artist. She sent me an email asking if I am available to do makeup and hair for her and her sister-in-law for a wedding event. I think she is the most sweetest person and client I’ve ever work with! By the way, she is a freelance photographer. You may check her portfolio at  She does wedding photography and other kinds of event.

Jessica wanted to have a natural makeup look. She has an oily skin most especially on the T-zone area and around her nose so I tried to use Milk of Magnesia as a primer and it really works well! If my client has an oily skin, I also make sure that I use matte powders and blush.

Thank you very much, Sophie and Jessica!
