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.

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.

Iris & Johndel Wedding

This was my first wedding for 2015, but I haven’t been able to maintain my blog for a while. I remember that during the beginning of the year, Marian and Dingdong’s wedding was still fresh and everyone was talking about them. What I particularly liked about Marian’s look was the braided hairstyle, so I suggested that we’d add braids for Iris’s hair as well. We did a different look for the trial/prenup makeup, but I’ve always prepared myself for last minute changes. Iris and Johndel met when they were studying at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines. They’re still young, but I could see that the love they had was resilient and strong–the kind that will last forever.

Makeup for Iris Penaflor – Garden Prenup Shoot

I haven’t posted in a while because I’ve been busy with work and my airbrush classes–the posts just kept piling up! My entry for today took place last year. Iris and Johndel knew about my services through common friends. I suggested that we try several looks for the prenup, so Iris could choose what she would use for her wedding. For the makeup, we went with the timeless, classic look:

It was fun working with this couple because they kind of let me help through the preps. Since they’re young, they’d ask other people’s opinion on their wedding choices. I enjoyed suggesting prenup locations for them, and I think they made an excellent choice. They’re also lucky because they were able to book an industry veteran for the prenup shoot. Their photographer was Cox Aban, a wedding/corporate photographer who took celebrity photos during the 90s and early 2000s.

I also changed Iris’s hairstyle several times for the prenup shoot. I usually stay until the end of the shoot for prenup sessions–for retouch and hairstyle changes.

BTW, if you need to know more details about L’Aquinum Garden, click this link to visit their Facebook page. The garden’s beautiful, but I wasn’t able to take photos of the area. There are airconditioned powder rooms, garden-themed tables and chairs, plant arbors, and a large chess board with pieces over a foot tall (perfect for theme prenup shoots like Alice in Wonderland). I will post their wedding photos soon, so stay tuned!

Pageant Makeup for Roselle Vytiaco

I haven’t spent much time with Roselle, but after working with her twice, I can say that she’s the kind of girl who sets her heart at her goals and does her best to fulfill them. She is dedicated to whatever endeavor she pursues, and her passion translates to professionalism. Whenever I work with her, she takes care of her own needs, and makes sure that she keeps me posted about her competition’s schedule. It’s hard to find young girls with the same quality as hers nowadays.

Roselle hired me to do her hair and makeup for Our Lady of Peace School’s annual Bb. Kalikasan. The first time I worked with her, I provided her with smokey blue eyeshadow, this time she opted for a natural look. She wanted to have light makeup with earth colors. I gave her a doll face look for the competition.

Here’s her before shot:

As I’ve mentioned, Roselle’s dedicated to winning at life and she gives her 100% with what she does. She gracefully walked the stage and answered the question about environmental awareness above par. Needless to say, she won the competition and even received special awards like Ms. Photogenic and Best in Recycled Costume. Proud of this girl, and always happy to work with her!
