Jedis or Not, The Force Is Strong With This Duet!

The-Louvre-Bridal-Blog-StarWars08

It’s no wonder why it’s the 5th highest grossing film series in the market! Be it whether it’s your third time buying tickets for the recent release of the first film of the next Star Wars trilogy titled Star Wars : The Force Awakens, or your first time trying to YouTubeStar Wars Episode IV: A New Hope” to find out what you’ve completely missed out on, there’s definitely something intriguing in every Star Wars film to take home.

The-Louvre-Bridal-Blog-StarWars02

However, if you’re not a Star Wars fan, you’ll probably be wondering, “what’s this hype all about?” With the first ever ground-breaking film from the Saga in 1977 till now, what keeps Star Wars fans so loyal is the originality and sense of wonder, totally unheard-of from a science fiction film.

Even our couple Michael & Tammy thinks so! Having a profound and strong honour for The Force, we brainstormed together with the duo to create their very own Star Wars pre-wedding photoshoot, right here in Singapore.

The-Louvre-Bridal-Blog-StarWars01

If you and your beloved honour ‘The Force’ (don’t worry, we do too!), this shoot is bound to bring you into their alternate galaxy. If you close your eyes for a second and get ready your battle stance, you’ll probably imagine yourself fighting battles with Luke Skywalker.

Recreate your favourite scenes with your very own special props. Channel that source of pure energy from your secret weapons to create the magic in your wedding photos and all your friends and family would be so envious of you movie stars! Who wouldn’t raise a lightsaber to that?

The-Louvre-Bridal-Blog-StarWars03

Matching the right outfits to fit your protagonist statures definitely plays a part too! For brides, we suggest you put on a creamy white a-line dress or perhaps a sweetheart neckline gown with delicate lace detailing. With the right accessories, we can also create the extra touch with your styling and makeup for the modern sweet yet strong Princess Leia look!

For the grooms, go for a medium grey suit like Michael or any sleek classic black suit to illuminate the perfect sense of bravery. Together, you both will form a smartly dressed duo!

The-Louvre-Bridal-Blog-StarWars04
Like any movie, all characters need their leisure scenes too and you too can capture those with a casual shoot! When there are battles, there will always be instances to relax and enjoy too. Put on your widest smiles and bask in the serenity and harmony of your love.

The-Louvre-Bridal-Blog-StarWars05

Makeup Looks and Hairstyles Mistakes You Should Never Make!

the-louvre-bridal-singapore_korean-certified-makeup-artist01aaHave you ever received or commented on someone’s makeup or hairdo which did not fit well?

Today, we are sharing professional tips from our Korean and Korean-Certified make up artists! Being the professionals of studying Asian faces, they know just the right styles that suit and would never go wrong on your special day!

the-louvre-bridal-singapore_korean-certified-makeup-artist02For your pre-wedding photoshoot in Korea, there will definitely be a special team of Korean makeup artists over there helping you with your styling, making sure you look amazing for your once in a lifetime pre-wedding photoshoot!

For those who aren’t intending to go to Korea, did you know that we too have our very own professional Korean-Certified Makeup Artistes right here in our homeland?  Be it whether you have a round, square or heart-shaped face, there’s definitely a right style and look they can always propose!

the-louvre-bridal-singapore_korean-certified-makeup-artist03Introducing, our  professional Korean-Certified Makeup Artist, Elaine Soo, who will be giving you some tips on the no-no’s and what you can do to make it a yes to create your natural K-look!

Straight thick eyebrows are extremely trendy to complete the Korean look, but Elaine mentions that it is all dependent on the natural shape of your eyebrows and also your face! Emphasizing on the fact that Koreans go for a more natural look, if straight and thick brows do not suit your face shape, do not force the look on you.

Instead, she suggests that you should follow your brow-line but add a little more edge to it, so as to give you some of that straight brow look but yet looking natural and youthful.

the-louvre-bridal-singapore_korean-certified-makeup-artist07If you are not yet aware, the Korean makeup look always emphasizes on looking ‘naturally’ beautiful! Thus, Elaine suggests that it is not advisable to put too much bronzer and end up making it look more obvious that you have caked your face.

However, gently contour your face depending on your face shape and also remember to highlight important parts, like your forehead and chin. To successfully achieve the Korean look, highlighting is essential so that you will have radiant, shining and dewy skin to show off!

the-louvre-bridal-singapore_korean-certified-makeup-artist08Everyone loves how fake eyelashes can help define your eyes and make it look amazing in real life and in your photos! We’re sure you’ve thought that if the fake eyelash is more sparse, it’ll make it look natural on your eyelashes.

However, she has more tips to share with you on choosing the fake eyelash that suits you. Depending on how thick or thin your eyelashes are, it will definitely affect your choice.

What actually matters more is the variations of lengths in the fake eyelash that makes it look more natural. If every eyelash is of the same length, it may ruin your whole ‘natural’ look!

the-louvre-bridal-singapore_korean-certified-makeup-artist11
For brides who don’t have double eyelids, don’t give up hope on achieving your sweet Korean look! Depending on your preference, Elaine propose that you can choose to add the double eye-lid tape or go bare.

No matter which you would prefer, she mentions that makeup can be used to enhance your eyes and make it look big and radiant even without your double eyelids! Isn’t that a load off your back? 🙂

Last but least, we have the lips! Do not choose too bright, bold colours or matte textured lipstick, instead opt for lip gloss in peach or pinkish tones. Elaine says she will always analyze the skin tone of the bride before picking out the lip shades, to see what complements her the best 🙂

Also, her secret to making brides lips pop is to use a lip concealer first, to fully show off the lovely hues of the lip gloss!

the-louvre-bridal-singapore_korean-certified-makeup-artist06b

Next up, we have the experienced Korean-Certified Makeup Artist and Hairstylist, Sally Tan, who also has some tricks up her sleeves for the right hairstyles to make you look even more gorgeous on your wedding day!

As Asian features are not as well defined, Sally believes that adapting various hairstyles for different face shapes to match up to the golden proportion is important! Here are some tips on how not to mess up your look on your special day!

the-louvre-bridal-singapore_korean-certified-makeup-artist04

For brides with a round face shape, do not cover your face with fringe or bangs. Instead, Sally would urge you to go for a deeper hair fringe parting to make your face more elongated and also have some hair coming down at the side.

If you have a high forehead or long oval shape face, putting all your hair up or not having a fringe is actually not suitable for you. She would advise having a fringe or bangs, which would definitely help to make your face look more proportionate. Then there, you will rock it!

the-louvre-bridal-singapore_korean-certified-makeup-artist05Aiming to go for the Korean look? Then take note that your hair colour is important!  Do not go for light blonde hair colours as it will clash with the classy style you are going for. Instead, go towards brunette or chocolate brown tones, but be sure not to go completely black as it will make your lovely curls less prominent!

One other aspect which Sally would look into, would be finding the right mix when combining customers requests, taking into consideration the theme and also which look suits their personality to give you brides a look which is special and uniquely you!

Most importantly, with all that gorgeous make up on, remember to take precious care and precaution to your makeup and hairdo. If well taken care of, your makeup and hairdo will be able to last your entire shoot with bare minimal touch up!

Isn’t it interesting how much Elaine and Sally has to share?  With the help of their professional tips and great eye for gorgeous looks, you’ll be left in good hands and nothing to worry about for your pre-wedding photoshoot or actual day!

We all know that the wedding day is every girl’s dream to shine and look her most glamorous.  It is always wise to set your budget and decide if you would prefer a custom made gown or an off-the-shelf gown. Creating bespoke gowns is always a dream come true for every bride. However, selecting from a wide range of versatile available designs is also advantageous in saving time and cost. As alteration is inclusive, brides can be assured with getting the best fit too.

2) Are there any new wedding dress designs?
Keep yourself up-to-date with what’s buzzing around the bridal neighborhood.  Flip through pages of magazines, find images on bridal websites or even Facebook albums or instagram accounts!  Browsing through blogs will also give you greater knowledge to see what suits you best!

The Louvre Bridal _ Dress23) Perhaps try something else?
So we know we’ve just told you to ‘keep your eye on your favourite dress’. However, as the saying goes, never put all your eggs in the same basket. Try playing around with various types and lengths of dresses. Who knows? That dress on the hanger may look 10 times more gorgeous on your body! Always keep an open mind to try new styles and always be open to the stylist’s advice.

4) What’s your silhouette?
A great helping tool in choosing your perfect dress, is understanding the right cut for your body shape.  Whether you’re petite, curvy or an hourglass, there’s always a silhouette to fit your body shape! If you’re unsure, try checking it up on the net or asking the boutique’s stylist for help!

The Louvre Bridal _ Dress35) Are you focusing on your flaws instead of the fit?
This is a huge no, no! Every bride has their concerns and would usually stick to one type of dress. However, it’s your special day, be confident and listen to what the gown designers or the image stylist has in store for you before making your own conclusion. For all you know, you may surprise yourself!

6) Should you listen to your entourage’s opinions?
Everyone has their opinion and sometimes the more the merrier may mean the more the messier.  As each friend gives an advice, it leaves you confused and you may even end up with a gown which was not your choice. Trust your instincts because only you know what you want!

The Louvre Bridal _ Dress47) Have you kept a location in mind?
Planning a dress code with a location or shoot in mind will help smoothen things out for you in the later part. For example, if you were to choose an apple green or breezy blue dress for an outdoor garden shoot, you may appear camouflaged in the background.

8) Forgotten about the icing on the cake?
Just like cakes are beautifully decorated with the icing, your dress too needs the right accessories to make your look go from “nice” to “wow!” It is important to bring out the whole look and feel as the right image styling helps enhance your wedding gown and bring out your charisma. Listen to the tips your stylist provides and be ready to look va-va-voom!

The-Louvre-Bridal-_-Dress69) Is your dress good to go?
Always plan time to have more than one fitting session! As the first fitting is for you the select your gown and get the right measurements, the second fitting will ensure that the desired wedding dress has been altered to fit your physique.

10) Who is the most beautiful bride?
You are!  Although you look absolutely stunning from a third person’s perspective, you too need to have a sense of self confidence and be happily comfortable in your own skin. After all, happiest girls are the prettiest!

Like a constellation of stars, the signature starry ceiling of Amara Singapore’s Grand ballroom set the mood for an elegant and romantic reception just like ‘A whole new world’. Spanning across the spacious reception was The Louvre Bridal’s couture gowns for each real-like princesses’ wedding.

Fashion-forward brides will love the new collection, “Charmeur 2015 Bridal Couture”, as the creation consists of the hottest fashion traits. The collection is crafted for individuality with exquisite gowns finished with intricate lace and the lightest swathes of tulle. “Beauty is no longer about perfection. It’s about confidence, charisma and character.” Styling from vintage lace to chantilly tulles, each dress is distinctive. Every bride has something to fit them, determined by personality traits along with body shape, skin tone and hair color.

This year’s trend places the focus on alluring back designs. From deep dips to embellished illusions and sexy slits, these backs will make sure the bride look just as good receding from the aisle as they are walking down it.
