Irene Sy-Go

I wouldn’t want to have a made-up face go to waste. My trial make-up session had to coincide with an event/party or our prenup (take two!) session. That being said, the most sensible thing to do was to schedule my trial make-up with Irene on the day of our company Christmas party in Fernbrooks where we had to dress up in our black and/or white formal attire.

I’m not one for make-ups. And hubbie doesn’t like heavy make-ups as well. Hence choosing the right makeup artist for our wedding day is crucial. A fellow W@Wie recommended Irene to me back in October, prompting me to check on Irene’s site. I loved Irene’s work; Kat and I were very amazed the night we browsed Irene’s site – it made us realize how good makeup can really enhance one’s features. I pondered on the thought that probably soon, some other bride-to-be will have her share of oohhh’s and aahhh’s with her friends over my before and after photos. But what the heck, care ko; it’s a cycle. =D

Irene advised she’ll be at our office at 3pm. But she arrived a quarter before 3 – this despite hailing from Quezon City and on a December traffic at that.  Really professional.

The whole session lasted for more than 2 hours. Before starting our session, Irene asked me a lot about any allergies, any color/style preferences, the look I want – very thorough. I like! What I specifically liked with her was that she was OC with sanitation as well. She has facial cleansers and hand sanitizers and alcohol (for her tools) ready for use. She wasn’t heavy-handed at all. And even when using eyelash curler on me, I didn’t feel it at all.

Everyone gave a thumbs up on how I looked last night. When hubbie saw my pics and gave his thumbs up as well, it was then final. I’ll have Irene Sy-Go take care of our hair and makeup for our wedding.

We probably will opt for the Jessica Alba hairstyle.

I loved what Rica, Irene’s funny hairstylist, did to my hair.

Notes for the wedding:

  1. will probably not wear any faux eyelashes anymore
  2. teeny-weeny more blush-on
  3. darker shade of peach-pink lipstick since our wedding is early evening
  4. ask Irene to work on making my face less round

    Super pretty! You’ll make a beautiful bride!

    I’m still looking for a make-up artist, but you know what, all this time I never really paid attention to Irene Sy-Go despite the good reviews in W@W. Feeling ko kase she’s for chinita brides. Me and my stereotypes. :/ But I’m on her website wow, and very nice. Pa-schedule din ako ng trial if I have a wedding to attend.

    Pareho tayo ng theme sa Christmas party. 🙂

      Hi Dea! Thanks! 🙂 haha. Magaling si Irene magtago ng puyat na mata. 🙂
      Irene asked me if I want to have the chinita look or do I want to have my eyes emphasized and i-highlight yung almond-shape na eyes. Hubbie liked my big eyes so I told Irene to go for making it bigger.

      Hope you’ll find the perfect makeup artist for you, soon. And I hope magustuhan mo din gawa ni Irene sayo. 🙂
      Enjoy your Christmas party!
