What, exactly, is good makeup? “To me, less is more,” says makeup artist and beauty entrepreneur, Candy Tiong. “Focus on perfecting and enhancing your best features but not to change you into another person.” With over a decade of professional experience, Candy is well-known for creating "your-skin-but-better" bridal looks that are naturally elevated by makeup.
In person, her candid and perky personality puts everyone she talks to at ease. I remember meeting the founder of a2i Makeup at her studio one day. It was seven in the morning. I was a little groggy and still waiting for energy to start kicking in eventually. The bright-eyed Candy, on the other hand, looked ever so ready to seize the day.
Her technical skills — plus her authentic, bubbly character — shine through, making her one of the most genuine veterans in the industry today. Read on as we talk to Candy about making things beautiful and her tip on staying empowered. Plus, find out more about the latest Candy T. Makeup Artistry Workshop promo below!
