A while back I got a call to do Make-Up & Hair for a unique Bridal Video Concept by Film Style Weddings – Wedding Cinematography + Photography.
The video was to be a surprise at the Reception event and tells the story of the couple and how they met through a composition of classical Bollywood songs.
There were 9 specific songs that were chosen according to the story they wanted to tell and we shot over a period of 5 days. Creating looks starting from Bollywood Cinema in the 1960′s to current looks. What made this project so special is the dedication and genuine charm the couple added to each of their performances, and that projected itself through the final visuals even more.
When the video was finally projected onto four large screens at their stunning Reception event, not even the couple got to see it before that very moment and the guests were cheering and clapping. When the video finished, the room went silent in anticipation and the newly married couple entered the room- talk about a grand entrance!
A unique and lovely idea for that very special day, check it out here:

I always stress how important it is to hire a professional and I am so happy that I had Olga Kirnos as my make up artist at my wedding! Olga put me at ease when I met her for the trial and created an exact look from a magazine. I knew she was the one and booked her right away! I wanted 5 different natural glam looks for the wedding functions and Olga did a wonderful job! She was able to create different looks everyday. After I got the photos, I realized what a difference good make up makes.
My make up looked fresh and flawless the entire time, even during the beach wedding ceremony and my outdoor photo shoots. She listened to all my requests and also offered her professional advice and suggestions. I am really glad I tried out the lashes and the bright eyeliner. My make up was fabulous and I didn’t even need any touch ups throughout the day. I was amazed at how radiant my skin looked even after 3 hrs of sleep!
Nothing seemed to bother Olga during the 3-day long chaotic wedding; she worked efficiently with a room full of people with my hair stylist and nail artist working on me at the same time. Not only is Olga brilliant at what she does but she can also make the bride or anyone at a stressful situation feel very relaxed. Her calming presence made the wedding absolutely stress free.

Olga Kirnos is one of the best make-up artist I have ever encountered in my experience of shoots, weddings and the like, in the US, UK and India. Calm, reassuring and unfailingly clever in any situation, she is the person you want around in a tough situation – or an ever after one!
What we loved about her work at my dear friend’s wedding is her subtlety, the way she managed to avoid the overkill of traditional Indian wedding makeup. The result was fresh, elegant and pretty, and what’s more it stayed through the sultry Malaysian weather at the destination wedding my friend had. Utterly professional, adept at making the most of any face and incredibly skilled in the art and aesthetics of makeup, Olga is a find.
I highly recommend her to anyone who is considering availing of her services and hope she’s around for my own wedding.

Like many other brides, I was also concerned about my Wedding Make Up and Trousseau for the special day. I didn’t want to opt for just a local parlor and feared looking excessively done up on my most special day.
I’m incredibly glad to have hired Olga as my Make Up Artist. She made me looked so beautiful! Her Make Up application is more contemporary and less traditional, which is exactly what I was looking for. She took inputs from me about the look I had in mind and created a final look for me which exceeded all my expectations.
I would like to thank you so much for giving me lifetime memories, for I would always be smiling when I look at my wedding pictures.
Wish you all the very best for all your future endeavors.
Thank you Olga!

My name is Funmi Alabi and I reside and work as a Banker in Lagos, Nigeria. I also operate a small bridal consultancy company which enables me to come across various local and international make-up artists operating around the Lagos metropolis. I had the pleasure of meeting Olga during my visit to Penang, Malaysia to attend friend’s wedding. Olga was there as the brides makeup artist.
One of the first things that struck me about Olga was her warmth and passion for make-up and art in general. During the course of the four bridal parties and wedding ceremonies we attended, Olga’s artistic gift was extremely apparent. Olga was extremely professional and focused on delivering her best. I was instantly impressed with her eye for detail and in-depth knowledge about beauty and skincare.
She was willing to go the extra mile to ensure her client was happy and satisfied by opting to work extended hours and provide additional services to friends and family which included me. Olga showed extreme diligence to her work and performed exceptionally well even under stressful situations.
Olga’s artistic gift also goes beyond make-up as she is well- talented in body artistry which she is also very passionate about. Olga is a dynamic and well travelled individual which I believe is the result of her amiable character. She is a wonderfully talented person and a pleasure to be around.
I highly recommend Olga as she would be a true asset and significant contributor to any team.
