Can I just gush about her wedding gown..one of the prettiest I have seen so far...I failed to get the name of the designer though...anyway Am is so charming and always smiling...not to mention have that super cute accent :D
Aside from weddings..I also do adverts, magazine editorials and celebrities. Allison is such a down to earth person given that she is an international star...here is her performance in showtime when I had the privilege to do her makeup..:)
Krista is a family friend. I had fun doing her makeup because her theme is a favorite of mine!! Vintage! She wore a fascinator as a veil. Wore a very simple sheath plain satin gown accessories are pearls and the chicken bag...so posh noh?! I kept her makeup super minimal on the eyes and used Russian Red lipstick on her lips...the end product is simply stunning... she carried everything flawlessly.

I missed doing smoky eyes...just with the right technique..chinita girls need not fear doing smoky eyes..
Steps on how to achieve the look:
1. Make sure to use shimmer eyeshadow on the inner corners of your eyes...shimmering silver is the way to go
2. on the outer v contour eyes by using black shadow
3. highlight the browbone..i used kitten by stilla
4. carefully rim the entire eyes with black kohl liner...dont forget the waterlines
5. put exag eyelashes to further open your eyes
6. the "trick" is with shimmering silver/white in the inner corners of the eyes..this is crucial in opening your eyes and of course the lashes galore :D
7. use a pink sheer blush
8 and pink gloss over pink noveau of MAC will complete the look...
am still in the process of figuring out how to do videos on my macbook...once done i can post makeup video tutorials!! weee :))
basically i used only 3 colors for the eyes...silver, black and kitten so go!! do your own version :D
We did a whooping 20 heads!! woot woot...2 hairstylist and me...hahaha...to say it was tring is an understatement but the sunny and positive vibe of Clars made the tiredness go away...walang kaarte arte na bride...napaka chill lang :D
Sarabeth is such a sweet person and my heart really went out to her when her photographers were 2 or 3 hours late! she couldnt help but cry bust since she is a nice person she tried to mask it but the tears just flowed...I joked that "hey at least hindi talaga natanggal makeup mo" and that made her laugh...i was so relieved...as for the irresponsible photographers...cmon guys!! 3 hours?? aargh...
May was really amazing the entire time...the only time that her emotions took over and she teared up was when her veil was fixed and then she said "This is it... this is really it" I have to look at her and what I saw was a very happy and contented woman...Congratulations again May and I really loved your lipstick :D
Kaye was very traditional and she wanted everything minimal down to her hairstyle...I say it suited her :) Did her makeup in one of my favorite hotels..Diamond Hotel...the view from her suite is AMAZING... turns out her maid of honor and I had a lot of common friends...small world indeed...another 3am call time but still I had lots of fun doing her makeup...
