Trial Make Up: Julia Kim

:::: Airbush Make Up by Toni Rodriguez :::: Hair by Aries Manal ::::

I’ve been busy the past month that I completely neglected this blog so finally here’s a post after my long lazy break.

I got an email a few months ago from Julia’s friend and coordinator Maricar inquiring for a wedding in Koh Samui Thailand next year and after a few exchange of mails we set up a date for Julia’s trial make up. Julia is based in Australia and it was only her coordinator whom I have been exchanging mails so I really didn’t know what to expect from her but the moment I met her for her trial make up in Alabang I was instantly drawn to her!

Julia is truly a sweetheart. Aries and I were welcomed by a warm smile from her and her soft spoken voice really made me feel at ease around her. I found her interesting since she’s actually pure korean but can hardly speak korean since she’s lived most of her life in Russia and speaks good russian! So a korean that speaks russian but lives in Australia!

I was also amazed with how organized Julia was. She showed me pictures of how she wanted her hair and make up to look like which made it easier for me and Aries to achieve the look that Julia wanted. Julia wanted smokey eyes since she have asian eyes and long curly hair with volume. Good thing I was wearing my own hair extensions at that time since Julia’s hair wasn’t that long I immediately removed my clip on extension and instructed Aries to use it on Julia’s hair though it wasn’t the same hair color just so Julia would see on how the long curly hair with volume would look on her.

Here’s Julia’s Before & After

The make up really suited Julia. Since she wanted smokey eyes but it is for a wedding and we still wanted to give her that natural, fresh bridal look on her I opted for neutral shades.  Julia has great skin which I envy with most korean women and all I really needed to do was conceal lightly her under eyes and highlight areas needed. It was such a fun trial make up with Julia though she completely know the look she wanted she also welcomed other suggestions and ideas from me and I loved how she also knows exactly what will suit her better – Julia actually took a make up course in Australia! Looking forward to sharing her wedding make up in Koh Samui next year!
