Five brides-to-be get a glam­orous makeover from our team of hair and makeup ex­perts.

easy el­e­gance

Theme “A ro­man­tic gar­den wed­ding with a colour pal­ette of white or cham­pagne, and soft pas­tel touches. No strong colours or any­thing too rustic,” says Es­tee.

Makeup Dewy foun­da­tion sets the tone for sheer, pearles­cent pink eye­lids and vo­lu­mi­nous lashes that make her eyes pop in the pret­ti­est way, cour­tesy of makeup artist Rina. To fin­ish, co­ral kissers with just a hint of shine.

Hair Es­tee’s straight hair is worked into big waves by hair­styl­ist Zeevy, and it makes her look ef­fort­lessly el­e­gant. A white hair­band adds a de­mure touch.

Theme “A rustic gar­den style. My wed­ding will be at The An­daz Sin­ga­pore’s Glasshouse,” says Lynette.

Makeup Boho with a bit more pol­ish: smoky eyes with turquoise and a swipe of sil­ver on the lower lids. Rina fills her brows in with eye­shadow pow­der for softer def­i­ni­tion. To keep things ro­man­tic: rose-hued lip­pie.

Hair Zeevy gives Lynette tou­sled waves, which are swept into a ro­man­tic pony­tail that shows off her grace­ful neck and shoul­ders, with a wee bit more vol­ume at the crown.

ca­sual chic

Theme “A cosy gar­den af­fair. I’d love to wear a ball­gown (ev­ery lit­tle girl’s dream!) for the morn­ing; some­thing soft and flowy. Or a mer­maid dress with a sweet­heart neck­line,” says Ivy.

Makeup “Eye­liner – and lots of it!” says makeup artist Beno. He uses a heav­ier stroke across her eyes for more def­i­ni­tion, shape, length, and a hint of drama. And fuch­sia on the lips for a look-at-me ef­fect.

Hair “A fuss-free look, with hair swept off the face and into a chic, ver­sa­tile pony­tail, al­ways works for an out­doorsy wed­ding,” says hair­styl­ist Den. Ivy’s rose gold locks were se­cured at the nape and teased into lovely cas­cad­ing curls.

"NOT TOO GIRLIE AT ALL - I FEEL SO EM­POW­ERED!"

glowy glam­our

Theme “My fi­ance and I fell in love with the sig­na­ture stair­way and strong colo­nial el­e­gance of the In­ter­con­ti­nen­tal Sin­ga­pore. He is a reg­u­lar in the army, so we’re hav­ing a mil­i­tary march-in. The vibe will be royal and grand, with bold colours like ma­roon and white or cham­pagne. I’m hop­ing to look el­e­gant and classy,” says Keely.

Makeup “Lu­mi­nous skin looks ex­quis­ite in pic­tures,” says Beno. Start with a base of translu­cent pow­der, and then add soft, shim­mery high­lighter on the cheek­bones, brow bones and nose bridge. Next, pol­ished brows, plus pearly and bronze eye­shadow blended to­gether, and a thin stroke of liner.

Hair “Noth­ing says old-world glam­our like an updo,” says Den. To com­plete the look: a deep side part and ten­drils that ac­cen­tu­ate her cheek­bones.

Rose gold ear­rings with di­a­monds, and match­ing ring and ban­gle, GOLDHEART.

"I LOOK SO EL­E­GANT AND CLASSY. THIS IS EX­ACTLY WHAT I HAD IN MIND FOR MY BIG DAY."

"I WANT TO LOOK LIKE A PRINCESS ON MY WED­DING DAY. I DON'T USU­ALLY WEAR MAKEUP, SO THIS IS A RE­FRESH­ING CHANGE."

sweet shi ne

Theme “My cel­e­bra­tion will be held at the JW Mar­riott Ho­tel Sin­ga­pore South Beach’s ball­room. I’m think­ing of a ro­man­tic party with dusty blue tones as my fi­ance pro­posed to me un­der­wa­ter while we were on a div­ing trip,” says Al­li­son. Makeup Rose eye­shadow and a peach pout may be fool­proof bri­dal sig­na­tures, but Beno takes it up a notch with rose gold in the pret­ti­est shim­mer for peep­ers that sparkle. A sheer, nat­u­ral-look­ing blush and peach lips help warm up her skin tone and give her a fresh, pretty glow.

Hair “Loose, soft waves are per­fect for em­body­ing the mood of an in­ti­mate soiree, while adding vol­ume,” says Den.
