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:

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:

Arian after the event. My proud uncle had a tarpaulin mounted for my cousin!

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

Carla and EJ Prenup & Wedding

Did you know that you can use a bridal makeup package as a gift to your soon-to-be-married friends or loved ones? Whether you’re a ninang, ninong, relative, or friend, you can contact Makeup by Noemi to fix up a makeup package for the bride and groom. Since she thought an HD makeup package would be a great gift for couple Carla and EJ, ate Jazzie contacted me in advance to make preparations. I gave them a wedding+prenup package (bride+groom for prenup, bride+groom+mother for wedding).

Prenup Date: Sept. 15, 2014
Location: Great Image – SM Taytay

Brides typically want to look radiant and fresh during the prenup session and the wedding, so I made sure that I gave that look and feel for Carla. She had nice skin so applying her foundation was a breeze. Here’s her photo without makeup:

Here’s the photo they used from Great Image:

Also did grooming for EJ–just a thin layer of foundation.

Wedding date: Sept. 27, 2014
Preps: Bougainville Resort, Antipolo
Ceremony: Our Lady of Good Voyage Antipolo
Reception: Alta Vista Club House, Antipolo

Carla and EJ met as members of a marching band–EJ a musician and Carla a majorette. I wish that their married life will be filled with love, music, and dancing. Here are the photos from their wedding. Photos taken by JB Coronado’s team from Infinite Pixel Digital Photography.

By the way, I also did the makeup of Carla’s mom. Here are her photos:

With Makeup

During the prenup session, I was amazed with how EJ handled the preps. He did all the wedding preparation within 2 to 3 months and even though there were minor issues during the wedding, in general, it was a delightful celebration. Carla was an exceptional bride. She never exhibited a trace of stress during the wedding. Not even once did she go bridezilla on anyone! I also was inspired by how professional JB Coronado’s team was. They strictly followed the schedule and they made sure that they got everything covered.

Carla and EJ are a young couple and they teased each other a lot. But in my observation, I believe they are the type of couple who has enough love to forgive and fall in love with each other again and again. Love never fails!

Bridal Makeup with Lanie

Here’s my latest bridal and bridesmaids makeup portfolio. We asked our cousin’s wife to model for us. She already has 2 makukulit na babies, and she doesn’t even have time to fix her hair. Kaya she was really excited to help us out. ^_^ I prepared 3 looks for this shoot, 2 bridal and 1 bridesmaid.
