Pinto Art Museum Wedding

When people ask me what is the most memorable wedding I attended, I would always answer, “Seth’s wedding at Pinto Art Museum.” Ironically, it was the simplest wedding I’ve been to. But the intimacy and the beauty of the place blended perfectly to create one of my favorite weddings ever.

Seth contacted me and asked me if I could do her and her family’s makeup for a simple civil wedding at Pinto Art Museum. She said she wanted a 50s vibe to her wedding and she specifically requested for vintage red lips. When I asked her what hairstyle she wanted, she said, “I’m going to cut my hair short… like pixie-cut short. So, we don’t have to focus too much on my hair.” Right then, I was impressed with her. Most of the brides I meet grow out their hair and here is Seth, cutting her hair short. She definitely was a rad bride!

It was a wedding in the morning so all of us had to get up very early. Like the usual in morning weddings, everyone was in a hurry. But everything went well. Here was Seth’s look for her wedding.

OLPS Grad Ball 2015

It’s prom season again! I was surprised to get bookings for proms/grad balls this year despite the K-12 program. Apparently, schools still organize evening events for their students – a good thing for us makeup artists. But for this post, I’m going to talk about the clients I had for proms/grad balls last year – particularly from OLPS, Antipolo.

First on the list is Marjorie. I’ve worked with her several times before. She was one of the first people I included in my Antipolo makeup artist portfolio, so I’m quite familiar with her face. She noted that she wanted gold eyeshadow and dramatic lips. Here’s the look I created for her:

When I was creating her look for her grad ball, I made a mental note that I would include a photo of her hairstyle. It was so difficult to do! There’s a French twist in the middle and a bunch of hair roses at the sides. This hairstyle was inspired by Jennifer Lawrence in American Hustle (my sister and I were so into J-Law during that time):

This next look was one of my favourite ones to do because my client was willing to add drama to her look. Bianca wanted smokey eyes and red lips. Her super straight hair went perfectly with the entire look. So fierce and sexy!

When I saw Jamaine’s face, I knew that her gentle features would go well with bridal, spring makeup. I used some subtle earth tones for her eyeshadow and a pinkish nude hue for her lips.

For Jayneille, I had more freedom to use more hues since her gown was colourful. I used brown, purple and nude for her eyeshadow and pink for her lips:

Last but definitely not the least on my list is Roselle. Like Marjorie, I’ve worked with Roselle several times prior to this. I can still remember how stunning she was when she joined her school’s Bb. Kalikasan pagent, wearing a gown made from recycled materials. By the way, she won that competition. Here’s the look I created for her for her grad ball:

olps grad ball, prom makeup, prom hairstyle, messy updo, tousled updo, tousled hairstyle, jennifer lawrence hair, jennifer lawrence american hustle, graduation ball makeup, hairstyle for prom, prom hair and makeup, makeup artist antipolo, hair and makeup antipolo

Because a lot of teenage girls love the messy updo, I’m also including Roselle’s hairstyle to this post:

Arian & Lovely Graduation Makeup

Ever since she was a just wee baby, I’ve always looked after my cousin Arian, and she swiftly grew into a lady right before my eyes. She’s the youngest girl in our clan and that was why everyone was so happy when she graduated as valedictorian of her class. When her graduation came, I instinctively did her hair and makeup. It was my honor and pleasure to have been part of one of the greatest milestones of her life. Along Arian, I also did her best friend’s hair and makeup. Lovely, by the way, also graduated with honors.

Since Arian brought her toga and cap with her, my sister decided to take their graduation pictures as well:

I also went to their graduation event to watch my cousin deliver her valedictory speech. It was heartfelt and I think I shed a tear! The event was held at Gloria’s Bahay Handaan—an open gathering hall with ample ventilation. It was a good thing that the weather was fair during that time so Arian and Lovely weren’t sweating throughout the program. I grabbed the photos that they took during and after the event:

Lovely looked Jessy Mendiola-ish in that red dress! This was taken after the event.

Graduation Makeup – Jem & Nicole

I wasn’t able to post blog entries regarding my clients last graduation season. I’ve been very busy these past months, and I kept forgetting about my blog! Anyway, I still believe in the saying, “better late than never!” So now I’ll start posting about the clients I worked with last graduation season.

Nowadays, most customers who book me for services find me through the Internet—either through Facebook or Google search. If I remember it correctly, Jem was one of them. Jem has a face shaped like Betty Boop’s so I decided to put her hair in loose, elegant curls. For the makeup, we went with a graduation makeup that will make her look sweet—something appropriate for her age.

In the Philippines, graduation season starts at the beginning of summer when the weather is humid. I’ve met a number of foreigners and balikbayans who say that the apart from the humid weather in the country, there’s also water in the atmosphere. I couldn’t agree more. That is why I always ask my clients if the event will be held in an air conditioned room. Their hair will be affected by humidity and water and asking for curls that are let down is pointless. Even with ample products like anti-humidity mousse and hairspray, their curls won’t hold up.

The case is a bit different for Nicole. She said her even though her graduation will take place in an open area, the event will start in the evening. So, we decided to put her hair half up and half down. Since she is also graduating from high school, I gave her a look that is appropriate for her age.

Thicker eyebrows make one look younger. That’s why Cara Delevigne can pass as a high school girl!

Photos were taken by my sister, Eunice. By the way, the only manipulation that she does on the photos that I post entails color correction, cropping, and stitching. She does not erase blemishes and such. That is why if you look closely at the photos, you will still see bumps (for clients with acne).

Prom Makeup for Jemina Nikka

During prom and graduation season this year, I got booked mostly for grad makeup. I only did hair and makeup for few clients for prom/grad ball. Nonetheless, I enjoyed providing service for all of them. Since my clients were teenagers (and were willing to discover new things about themselves), they were more adventurous. What I liked about them is that they mostly trust the opinions of professionals–what type of makeup and hairstyle suits their features. One of the customers who booked me for prom, was Jemina Nikka, a student of St. Clare Science High School, Antipolo. When I met her, my first impression of her was that she was very reserved. But the interesting thing about reserved people is that they keep a hidden gem inside them, waiting to shine.

Prenup Makeup for Abi

This was one of my last gigs for the year 2014, but definitely not the least. It was a very relaxing and refreshing gig because the location was at The Farm at San Benito in Batangas. They only serve organic and healthy food there, and the air was fresh. There was even a yoga session in the morning. There was a typhoon during the shoot, but since Abi and Kendall got a very talented photographer, their photos still turned out excellent. Abi asked for a simple makeup with elegant hairstyles for this shoot. Here are the photos from the prenup session.

Date: December 7, 2014
Location: The Farm at San Benito
Photographer: Jamie Lihan of Imagine Nation Photography
