So if you notice several pics on my older posts are not showing because I exceeded the monthly limit on one of my Photobucket accounts :P Oh well it should be fixed by tomorrow.
I went to a Korean-Chinese wedding about a month ago - the bride and groom were university friends of my bf. Wore this during the day because even though it was in a church, people weren't very dressed up at all:
With these shoes:
Makeup-wise I went for a simple girly look:
I don't have any proper full outfit pictures because I forgot to charge my camera before going so it died early :(.
The dinner was done at a Chinese restaurant, with a Korean ceremony in the middle lol. They also had a lion dance troupe come in right before the start of dinner.
Dinner table before guests arrived:
Chinese wedding style menu with like a million courses:
Only foodie pic I took was of the piglet - because those red eyes just made it looks so evil o.o
Midway through the dinner, they started setting up the table for the Korean ceremony:
It was interesting for me since I didn't know anything about Korean wedding traditions. The chestnuts on the table are for the parents to toss and the wedding couple has to catch as many as they can. The more they catch, the more children they'll be blessed with :P
Overall, everything went well, the only major thing was the crappy (non-existent) sound system that the restaurant provided. The sound kept cutting in and out constantly. So whenever that happened the emcee/master of ceremonies would have to should at the top of his voice :S It was pretty amazing he didn't have a sore throat the next day!
In fact for the photo slideshow of the couple this is what things were reduced to:
LOL basically the guys had to hold up the microphone up to the laptop speakers to get the sound! If I had been the bride at the wedding, I would have turned into a serious bridezilla! Props to the bride and groom for being so good natured and taking everything in stride.
The restaurant refused to take responsibility too for the technical issues even though it was THEIR system. The restaurant only reluctantly gave a minimal discount at the end of the night, and only because the master of ceremonies helped them argue for it. Other than that though, it was an enjoyable wedding.
Outfit - BCBG red dress + JC red heels + red pashmina
I tried curling my hair before but it kinda failed since I hadn't touched a curling iron in 1-2 years.
Some shots of the makeup - I didn't get good ones because I didn't get to take any with daylight.
The idea was to have silvery-grey eyes paired with pale pink lips, but this particular pic is when I got home and had already eaten the gloss off :P
Products used for the looks - going from Day to Night:

For the night look, all I did was to add makeup on top of my day look:
Removed lipstick (or ate it off)
Touched up foundation / powder on top (which also toned down the existing blush)
Everyday Minerals Soft Touch blush (a lighter shade of pink to match the new lipcolour)
MAC P&P lip conditioner, MAC Lip Erase, Coffret D'or lipstick and gloss in 06 Peach Blossom
Urban Decay Primer Potion
MAC Electra eyeshadow (silver) all over lid and to line lower lashline

LORAC Dreamy eyeshadow (grey) on outer corners
MAC Technakohl in Greyprint to soften the black liquid liner from earlier and create a more smoky look. Lined top lid and outer half of bottom lid.
P.S. Btw I was wearing Acuvue Define contacts in black that day. I think they are helpful for occasions where pictures are going to be taken because they don't look fake at all (imo) and help your eyes look larger/more awake.
