They say the bride is in her prettiest during her wedding day because she naturally glows. I believe that “natural glow” has a lot to do with a fantastic make-up artist sorcery. Makeup Artists today are modern-day magicians. Days before my wedding, my skin was acting up again which resulted in dry patches and blemishes. I had also dark circles around my eyes because I keep staying up late up chatting with my family. But my makeup artist made those magically disappear on my wedding day. Looking for a makeup artist for wedding day is a challenging task. Of course you want to look your best on your special day. Who doesn’t, right? My close friend in high school in Saudi Arabia recommended Norvic Totanes. I did a makeup trial with her in Manila and I absolutely love the results. She uses the best makeup brands & tools and is a whiz with an airbrush. She has done makeup for Daphne Osena, Divine Lee and Maricar Reyes. I told her what I want for my wedding day is a makeup that is ‘just me’. I don’t want to look overdone nor do I want any drastic makeup transformation. And on my wedding day, I was very happy with the result of my makeup. I did two looks for the wedding: a messy up-do with fresh makeup with a glow and a side part do with smoking eyes & plum lips.

Not only is Norvic Totanes an amazing beautiful makeup artist, it is fun to be with her. She makes the bride feel relaxed and I enjoyed the quality time we spent with Edmarri as I relive love story of J & me. She is highly- recommended.
Thank you Ate Norvic for making me look beautiful on my wedding day. Mwah! And thanks Edz for introducing me to your Ate Norvic….
