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.

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:

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.

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:

Here are the two looks we worked on at the hotel:

2nd hairstyle – half up, half down, can be worn during the reception

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!

Portrait Makeup for Danny Ngalot

A portrait is a wonderful keepsake, and in Danny’s case, a gift to her husband who works abroad. When she commissioned us to take her photos, my sister and I were thrilled. It is always easier to work with clients who are creative, and Danny suggested a number of beautiful pegs. We decided to create two looks for her–simple and clean + smokey eyes with floral hair accessories.

Photos were taken by Eunice Samson
