Hey! I’m Charlane Yu, a professional makeup artist based in sunny Singapore.
People say, ‘do what you love and you will never have to work again’. I’d always felt that that was unrealistic, until I finally became a makeup artist.
Having been raised in a traditional family, I was expected to do well in school, and I worked very hard to meet that expectation. I made my parents really happy when I presented to them my job offer from NUS as a researcher. I had made it! During my spare time, though, I was dolling up friends for their special events and occasionally some of them would joke about how I should consider switching careers. In late 2015, I did just that. I started my journey to becoming a full-time professional bridal makeup artist. I like working with brides because every wedding is magical in its unique way, and I love experiencing that. It is always an honour to be part of something so important.
I prefer clean and light makeup with careful attention to details on eye adjustment and enhancement to bring out the beauty of each bride. I want romance to show through the bridal hairstyles that I create. Every hairdo is unique in its own way as I cater to each bride’s style and preferences.
I enjoy chatting with and listening to my brides to understand their unique needs. I do this before and during our makeup session. I believe alignment between you and me is crucial, in terms of what looks you prefer and whether you have any special requests, to creating great makeup and hairstyling. I’m constantly improving my professional skills and knowledge through courses and experience in the field so you can trust to always be getting my best work yet!
Thank you for reading and considering my service. I give my sincerest blessings to you on your big day!
