Let’s say, there’s a special event coming up. It could be a friend’s wedding, company event, party or just a romantic candlelight dinner and you want to look your absolute best. All of the above and more, require a bit more effort than just a simple eyeshadow and lipstick look. Since it’s for a special occasion, why not put a little more effort by getting an expert to help doll you up.

There are two routes you can go with this: get a freelance makeup or just go to any of these makeup counters in KL. A freelance makeup artist is one that we’d suggest for your big wedding day.
