During the preparation for this styling photoshooting, I keep telling my model:
“I hate the styles to be made today…”
then she asked, “so why still work on it?”
I told her: “I want to tell my readers that I can do it, but I hate it”.
Especially I focus on bridal styling, I insist simple, clean, natural and elegant makeup, which is the best for brides, that you won’t look outdated after years. Any dramatic makeup like vigorous eyeshadow colours, fingers-like false eyelash, visible eyelid tape, thick black eyeliner, I would prefer to leave it for fashion features.
I like to make clients look prettier through makeup, but not another person
(I know some girls like it):
So, Taiwan style makeup… sorry, not my cup of tea.
Compare with different countries’ styles, I praise Japanese style’s delicateness;
Korean’s skill on foundation base; and
Western Europe’s natural.
Unfortunately, we don’t have Western face, cannot just simply apply the Western Europe style right on Asian. Thus, I combine the Korean and Japanese style.
I worked on the Korean Makeup topic months ago, to make better comparsion, I invite the same model, Windi, for the deomonstration for this Taiwan style post:
Taiwan style: thicker, lighter eyebrow; big eyes, thick and long false eyelashes, white founation base, big hair styles
Korean style: dark gray, shapeless eyebrows, flawless face, dewy skin, long eyeshapes, very simple or no false eyelashes
Which style is more natural? You know it!
Typical Taiwan style:

I feel Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia etc makeup are still a bit behind the trend, I don’t decide to discuss for these countries’ makeup style. Please see below and you will understand:

Coming next, I will write about the Japanese style makeup (one of my favourite style, yeah!), don’t miss it!
