By living abroad, one of the disadvantages us Asian women face is the lack of Asian beauty services available. Yes i know, we do have many beauty parlours etc but how many can you say are actually very good. Good enough that you would entrust your face with them on one of the most important days of your life...yes..your wedding day! By chance i came across someone who does amazing makeup...bridal makeup and she is located here in London! Lubna Rafiq.
Lubna was trained from none other the master of all makeup Artists , Massarth Misbbah from Depilex and became a fully qualified beauty therapist and makeup artist.Since then there was no looking back! Her work has been featured in Asiana, Asiana wedding, Viya, Asian Women and Asian Bride. She has even worked with famous celebrities like Ashwariya Rai, Susmita Sen, Kajol, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerjee! Now that's saying something!
I went to her launch party for her makeup brushes/ beauty boxes. I even have her makeup brush set and i must say, it is quite good! Just like M.A.C! They'll soon be available at John Lewis department stores.Its a must have for sure!
Back to the makeup...Lubna knows how to make a bride look modern yet traditional at the same time. The makeup is so well blended and just the right amount is put on. Not like the very common problem of too much makeup and pancaked foundation.* shrudder* Talk about a girls worst nightmare. When i went bridal makeup hunting in Pakistan.. the first thing i checked was the foundation. If that's not right then your makeup wont look right,no matter how amazing your eyes or the rest of your face is.
So all you girls,out there..or at least the ones in United kingdom..i strongly recommend Lubna Rafiq. I admit she is pricey, but then again i think its worth it. She's located in Croydon, London.
you can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org or check out her website
