MUA second wave - DONE

In my previous entry, I mentioned that I have confirmed all MUAs for all three events (nikah, sanding and tandang). In fact, that was the first thing I did after confirming on the venue of course.

Unfortunately, I can't remember, I think about weeks after that, the MUA I hired for my nikah, Ian Sham, called me to give me a bad news. She said she will not be able to make it for my nikah because she has booked a ticket to Bali and she forgot about that when she called to confirm on the date. When she told me the first time, I was blank. I couldnt get at first, I didnt know what was she trying to tell me. I slowly absorbed, but I was still blank.. I did not know whether to be angry or to be sad. She said she can get a replacement for me. But I have lost my confidence. She refunded me, the next day.

The first time when I found her website, I fell in love with her work. I kinda like what she does to certain people. But 'certain people' would mean, not all of her work are enticing. I guess, it depends on the bride laa..

When I called to ask for availability, she was nice.. and friendly. But what I didn't like about her that time was... the terms and condition that she provided to me before I banked in the deposit. I was comparing to Su Cantik of course. Or even Saidatulnisa.. those are the famous MUAs. Although their prices are higher than Ian (because I guess Ian is not really that famous), the amount of deposit that she requested was higher. And she had other terms like transportation cost, extra cost for staying back bla bla bla..that was made clear to me on the phone. So that gave me a bad impression the first time.

But because I had no choice, it was between Ian and Saidatulnisa, of course I chose the cheaper one. Now that she has cancelled on me...I had to turn to Saidatul.

This is Saidatulnisa's work. Her make up are all natural, which I like..but sometimes, they seem too normal. But what's important in MUA is not what colour she puts on your face. It is more like whether she understands your face, she knows how thick and how thin the make up should be in order to appear nice on tv/magazine/picture/video. And she has that expertise.

What I heard about her is, dia a bit sombong and hanya nak layan VIPs sahaja. But when I first talked to her, I swear she was nice and humble. She didn't sound snorbish at all. However, she told me that she has a contract with the Queen, so whenever the Queen calls her, she has to cancel on her client. But she will put her assistant, Liza to replace.

Based on other friends' experience, Liza does her magic too. She learned a lot from Saidatulnisa. So I thought, hey why not? If I lose a diamond, I get a gemstone. Both are equally beautiful. I imediately booked her and I feel very good about it.

Setiap yang berlaku, ada hikmah. I was told by Sue who had experiences with Ian Sham that her make up is not really nice after all.. She makes your skin looks darker. Alhamdulillah.. and when people know that I booked Saidatulnisa, they give positive feedbacks. Alhamdulillah.....syukur..confident sikit.

I have 3 months and 4 days left!!!

yey...YES to Kak Sai...but i think Kak Liza (her assistant) pun ok gak..very natural and x cakey langsung..thats why i booked her for my nikah..she even asked me that Kak Sai also free on my nikah date why dont i try her..i guess rate die dah naik tinggi melambung la tahun ni..hahha.tgklah kalau ade rezeki lebih maybe i;ll switch to Kak Sai..who know.?hehe..x saba nk tgk ur result nnti.

Izrin said...

oh, mmg la kak Sai terlalu mahal, i guess yg plg tinggi antara semua yg i hv checked. but anyway.. i guess worth it kot. She did my cousin's wedding oso, n i must say she did a great job. berserah saje laaa :)but anyway org ckp mmg kak liza pon bagus.. so no worries.. :)
i saw ur blog, vr nice :)

kak liza did my mekap for bertandang n almost everyone loved it!my mom prefer kak liza than sue cantik coz her mekap natural and yet berseri2!all d best w ur prep!

Izrin said...

thanks diah :)

oh yea, i know kak liza is also good.. :) and cheaper than kak Sai too.. sbb tu lega sket, if kak Sai cant do it, kak liza pn is good enuff..

i guess kak liza n su cantik has diff way of approaching it, they produce different look, takper laa, dah book dah pon..hahah, can't look back in regret :p

Hi Izrin,

I dah bayar deposit Iansham then terjumpe this post. Paranoid sekejap. Have you heard other reviews about her?

How early did she tell you eh before the date?

These things are the last thing we hope to happen. haihhh

Hello Fazan,
I must say that i fell in love with her arts when i visited her website, sumer cantik2, but i've heard few other comments about her, which I am not too sure betul ke tak cz I haven't seen it myself. My fren cakap she make up her face nampak gelap sket, but cantik n natural look.

i guess u shd tell her before dia start makeup, jgn bg ur face nmpk gelap sgt, like reduce the shading a bit. (but jgn ckp sampai bg dia offended ok, nanti dia marah plak, buat muka u tak cantik :)

but she's a nice lady. dun worry :) berserah ok. Yang penting, on that day, u jz have to be confident in everything, u must believe that u are the prettiest n insyaAllah, u will look pretty because of ur confidence. believe me!

because i ambik kak sai pon yg plg gempak, tp i rasa i sgt gemok n buruk, n look at my photos, semua pon tak cantik. hehe soo... it must come from within ok?

Good luck in ur prep!

Fazan said...

Thanks Izrin! Baru perasan your reply. Yeah sometimes on photos tak perasan sangat whether the make up buat skin tone darker ke tak cos lighting and we dont know the natural skin tone of the brides kan.
I nak paranoid lebih2 pun tak gune. Takpe I hope for the best, whatever it is, I keep my kiv list just in case something bad happen so I have Plan B ready :)
