Photoshoot: Bridal and Arabic Eyes and Contest!

Last week, my friend from makeup school asked me if I wanted to have a shoot. Being the jobless person that I am, I agreed. We got two photographers, John Tepaurel and Stanley Ong. We've worked with John before. I was surprised that my friend was able to get Stan. I looooove his works! They were both really nice to work with. :)

Anyways, here are some pictures from the shoot (though I'm still waiting for John's pictures).

Model: Macy Olazo
Photographer: Stanley Ong

Model: Maru Ventura
Photographer: Plivia Alaba

For the last look, I was inspired by Renren's dramatic arabic eyes. :)

Contemplating on my experience in makeup school and etc.

I know I've neglected blogging since my makeup school finals. I was so stressed out during my finals day that I went on lethargic mode for a week and then the following weeks were just crazy. But before I go into details, I'd like to share the outcome of my finals day.

They're not much, I'm not really satisfied with what I did. I know I could've done better but I kid you not, that day was probably one of the most stressful days of my life. Anyways, makeup school went by so fast. I can't believe its really over. I miss my teacher and classmates. :(

Right now, I'm still trying to figure out what I really want to do. haha. I quit work since I'm planning to go to graduate school (a decision which was made primarily by my parents). But I'm contemplating if I made the right move because the pay that came with my work was a vital part of my life.

As of the moment, I keep myself busy with my makeup gigs. I keep accepting the offers despite the fact that most of it are xdeals since I'm still trying to build my portfolio. Over the past weeks, I've realized that I need a traincase with wheels. It gets reaaaaaaaaaaaally tiring lugging around my heavy traincase, going from one gig to another. Also, I've revamped my personal multiply account to accommodate my portfolio since I didn't want to manage another account. Lol. You can check it out at

Yes, shameless plug! Haha. So there. I'm still not sure if I really want to pursue doing makeup but I'm enjoying it so far. :)

Update and Contest!

It's been long since I updated my blog. I had my finals in makeup school last Sunday. It was both stressful and fun. So stressful that I went on lethargic mode for a couple of days.

The outcome? I was a bit disappointed since I know I could've done better. But hey, it was quite an experience.

A few things I learned from it:

Never leave your stuff scattered and unattended. Chances are you'll lost em. haha. (I ended up losing a necklace, a brush and my MAC fluidline, which I fortunately recovered from the makeup box of my seatmate lol)

Red lipstick, if not applied properly, can bleed crazy!

Anyways, contest time!!!


wait there's more! Also get a chance to win...
