I’ve decided not to use the French Bridal MUA for day 1 of the wedding. In my obsession with my makeup and new blog feature, I forgot to mention that the French Bridal MUA said something that I was not too happy about. While doing the slipshod trial makeup for me, she casually mentioned that some customers are very demanding and it’s not good ‘cos if the MUA is not in a good mood, she will not be able to do a good job for the customer. I was like WTF? Is that some veiled threat or something? Although her tone wasn’t threatening, I nonetheless felt that that was not an appropriate thing to say.
On top of that, she looks super dowdy lor… lousy dressing, rough skin, dry frizzy hair with no makeup except for nicely drawn brows. Doesn’t inspire much confidence. I didn’t want to be biased because an ugly person with bad dress sense might still be able to do a good job but having said what she said about how MUAs might not be able to do a good job if they’re not in a good mood, I think that’s the last straw. So even if her makeup skills on Tue turn out better than my usual hair stylist, I’ve decided that I will still not use her. Bleah.
Forgot to add… another thing that I’m really happy about Yuki (my hairstylist) is… the makeup brands she uses! E.g. Majolica mascara (I told her about the new Expander Eye Frame and she’s getting her niece to buy from Taiwan immediately.. haha) and lip gloss, Shu Uemura eyeshadow palette, etc. 😀
If anyone else wants to hire her for makeup/hair, drop me a note. Her usual charge for makeup and hair (in Singapore) is $400. $50 extra if you need her to be at your place before 7am. She’s also a hairstylst and works out of the Prettybox studio at Tg Pagar.
