A workshop alumnus. An inspiration.

Thanks to Nellie for inviting to her Piaget’s Couture Preciuse gala dinner! While Nellie always said how much she learnt from our makeup workshop, we said she also inspired the Seasoning community with her balance of her career, her pursue of faith, of beauty and her role as a respectful mama (now 2nd bb).  A blessed encounter at Seasoning!!

Inspirations for wedding / bridal – Turning an unexpected venue into your dream theme or a theme that meant something to you couple. The whole “LOBBY” of Peninsula (first ever) was magically transformed into a Parisian museum of Haute Joaillerie & a Parisian mansion. The loooong table was romantically filled with different shades of white flowers (yes white in different shades and shapes!), every dish of food was like an art piece (and yummy of coz!). Contrasted with contemporary band of music & with rows of transparent Philip Starck chairs.

Mom-to-be in Jil Sander navy tube

Shining mom-to-be in Jil Sander tube. Have always been impressed by Carmen’s very good sensitivity to fashion specially her pick of wedding dress 2 years ago, I was again allured by her pick of her usual navy Jil Sander tube during this shoot. I enhanced her effortless beauty and stylish flair with just a clean glow of skin and then a touch of fushia stained lips to contrast the block of navy color. Thanks to Rico who used to photoshot her wedding, for sealing the chic Carmen with her excitement of motherhood in this photography (www.anantcapture.com).

Seasoning co-hosted bridal styling workshop with InterContinental Hong Kong, Trinity Bridal and Solomon Bloemen. Had so much fun with this chemistry!

Make-up hairstyling for the Oscar de la Renta Spring 2014 bridal collection preview

Seasoning’s Sprout Team is honored to be the make-up hairstyling team for the Oscar de la Renta Spring 2014 bridal collection preview.  Inspired by Oscar’s new collection, Caroline customized a make-up design of neutral palette with a touch of “fairy” peachy pink shimmer and an air-light dreamy hair bun. Thanks to Sprout Team for the lovely execution of the looks.  Great to learn about the bridal styling insights from the stylist of Oscar de la Renta who flew from New York.  Specially love the air-light sprinkle of silvery embroidery on the gown.

The Beauty of Strength and Softness

This reassures my passion & mission in Seasoning. 7 yrs ago, I first met Joanna at my make-up workshop & she has blossomed from an intern lawyer. 2 yrs ago, she excited called me about her wedding & Joanne of Sprout Team helped her bridal styling beautifully, while I was ‘sitting moon’. 3 weeks ago, she excitedly shared with me her plan for her maternity photoshoot makeup styling at my hubby Rico’s studio. They’re revisiting Rico’s studio since her prewedding shoot (www.anantcapture.com). Love receiving calls for good news from our Seasoning community;)

Amazing to have enhanced Joanna’s glow through my brushes, styling with her existing pants of Dries Van Noten & existing scarf/tubes which have been part of her for years.

Being a very loving father himself who wakes up in the middle of midnight for his son, Rico had captured Joanna’s mixed emotions of joy & anxiety, hope and excitement as a mom-to-be through this photography. Proud of you, as my husband & my son’s father who taught me about LOVE and as a photographer who shoots with his full heart and Love.

Cara G. had experienced a mini-simulation of our “couture/customized bridal make-up hair styling” with Caroline. Caroline customized a very nature palette with tint of champagne copper to enhance her honey skin tone and designed a super sleek low bun hairstyle for her after the consultation.

Chemistry between Trinity Bridal gowns, Solomon’s artistic bouquet, Caroline’s make-up hairstyling on Cara G

Cara G. had experienced a mini-simulation of our “couture/customized bridal make-up hair styling” with Caroline. Knowing that Cara loves nature/runs a detox café and allured by her very contemporary features, Caroline customized a very nature palette with tint of champagne copper to enhance her honey skin tone and designed a super sleek low bun hairstyle which is in Fall/Winter 2013 trend (indeed this was a fashion shoot) though still in line with our Timeless bridal beauty philosophy. During Caroline’s consultation with Cara, she told Caroline that it’s always her wish to have side parted fringe but most stylists have never done this, Caroline encouraged her for a go. Here it is!!

Lovely fairy Reem Acra gown from Trinity Bridal.

Amazingly vintage color of bouquet from Solomon Bloemen.
