Makeup Artist Review: JAP Station, Kepong

I actually threw caution to wind and took a makeup artist which I didn't really test out. I bought a trial makeup session from an online deal website and wasn't too please with the result.  It was done by a student of the makeup studio and then the "teacher"(Kat) came and added some touch ups. I was intrigued and decided to take her instead.

Anyway, the offer of RM29 is as follows:
Your trial make-up run will allow you to take a look at exactly how you will look on the wedding day; the trial will consist of:

 - hair styling
 -  make up
 -  and, the application of ANY accessories that you'll be using on the wedding day (i.e. lashes, veil)

What happens during the trial makeup is as follows:
1. Half your face will be the "day makeup" which is usually a subtle natural look
2. The other half of your face will be the "night makeup"

*Will upload sample pics when I find them later*


On the actual day, she was late because she came from Sungai Buloh to BKT town and got lost. Poor thing. To make matters worse, we both communicate with each other like chicken and duck because she's not fluent in English and my Mandarin is passable.

Anyhow, thank God, she finally arrived half hour later. She spend lots of time doing my makeup with face contouring and eye defining. She added a large flower to my hair (which normally I don't fancy) but turned out very nice. She is so nice also to help me sew part of my gown and suggested I wear double bra since my gown was too loose (I lost weight!!). Ironically, I found out this happen to my friend too who is the first owner of the gown! Lol

Dinner time, I was half hour late for my makeup because our "jam cha" (tea ceremony) session finished late. More like guests left late about 3.30pm and we didn't realise we didn't have much time tille 5pm!!

Anyway, again, dinner makeup was nice also. She even helped me put my additional short Shu Uemura lash with stars to give me the glitz I wanted. She did something I didn't request again - she puffed up my hair to the front that it looked faked to me and she put my necklace in my hair. I find it a bit too much but my friends reassured me it was nice for dinner. Thank you Kat from JAP Station, Kepong. Really appreciate your personal touches for my day.

Here are pictures of me before and after for your comparison. Do drop me a comment should you need her contact. I really am thankful she is efficient and dedicated in her job plus the fact that her charges is not as high as others. :)
