M&H : Jira
In 2002 Stacey Lee was my first model that I did Makeup for at a shoot in SF. Since then we had lost touch with each other. Until 2009 out of the blue Stacey contacted and told me that she was getting married.
I was shocked and so happy at the same time that this Beautiful model who is well-known contacted me to be her Makeup artist for her wedding day. She could find any other makeup artist instead of me and she thought of me. What an honor and priviledge. I believe all bay area makeup artists would die to be my place. Now whenever I see her wedding picture or video I’m so honored to be just a small part on her wedding day.

Gosh I’ve known Jira almost 8 years now. We first worked together on a photoshoot years ago. She really knows how to do Asian make-up.
Needless to say I had to have her do my wedding at the Julia Morgan Ballroom this past May. Jira uses an airbrush technique of foundation that lasted 12+ hours and through the my various tearing sessions throughout the day/night. Yay for her water proof mascara. Not only did it last all day but turned out flawless in photos. I just got my proofs back from my photographer Chung Photo. Her team was able to do hair/make-up for a bride, 6 bridesmaids, mom and cousin in 5 hours time. Right on schedule. She’s also does great cut/color and extensions too. The Works!!
Brides: if you have a certain style or look you’re looking to recreate, just tear out a picture and bring it to your trial session.
I uploaded a few pics from our engagement session/wedding ~Stacey

Jira Couture (JC) is a new cosmetic line that is being launched by Jira of WowPretty. Girls, if you’ve been married or know friends who have, then you have heard of Jira and her amazing team of experienced wedding hair stylist & make-up artists. She has been in the industry for over a decade & I’m excited about the launch of her new cosmetic line.
I recently switched over to the new mineralized loose powder & blush about two weeks ago and am loving the results. The loose powder is SPF15 & all items are FDA approved. The active ingredients are the same as those that are used in commercial branded cosmetics which are sold in your local department stores.
If JC was available on my wedding day, I would have bought the entire line so that I could have done small touch ups throughout the day. Not that I needed it, but it’s a good idea to always have it readily available. Plus, every girl wants look her best like she did on her wedding day right?
I can’t wait till the e-store goes live in about 1-2 months. I’m going to order a slew of the lip glosses. Hopefully ,they’ll be offered in a set. Be sure to take a sneak peak of the site as Jira is already fulfilling orders through direct email, friends, family, past and present clients. ~Stacey
