Anyone have any good makeup artist recommendations for San Diego who have experience working with Asian facial features?

Preferably someone who is experienced with a more natural look- I think the dark smoky eye makeup looks awesome on a lot of people, just not me and looks overly heavy/made up on my face because of my facial features and eye shape.

I very much like the natural/ glowy look with minimal eyeshadow or some lighter coloured eye makeup (see pics!) I know the make up is very simple looking and I actually almost wondered if I should just attempt it myself, but because I wear any makeup usually except for eyebrow pencil, I am hesitant about doing a first attempt on such an important day.. also I would think (hope) that professionally done makeup would last the whole day as needed through ceremony, photography, etc.

We are traveling from Canada to San Diego for our wedding so don't know the area very well. I have combed through the internet but am coming up short in finding a makeup artist whose photos/portfolio seem ideally suited to the type of look I want . I would very much appreciate if anyone had any suggestions for suitable makeup artists in this area?

Thanks in advance everyone and wishing you all happy engagement and wedding planning!!!! Smiley ring

    I looked through Yelp for makeup artists in San Diego, and there are a couple Asian ones and their portfolios have a lot of Asian faces.

    Hi Sinica! Have you tried using the "Asian-owned businesses" filter in the WeddingWire vendor search? I'd check out those companies first:

    San Diego Wedding Hair & Makeup Artists (Asian-Owned Businesses)

    My DOC recommended a few MUA in the area and of the few she sent me Veil of Grace seems to at least have a wider range of faces they have experience on, and to me at least they check the box for the style of makeup you're looking for. I'm sure Lynnie's suggestion will be much more helpful, but it's another option to check out if you hit a dead end!
