Airbrush Bride: Misty

I've been pushing aside updating this Blogger account for I am currently working on my new website and yes, moving to Wordpress too. I wanted new posts, especially makeover ones to be the main thing when I finally get it up. It just seems though, that the site's makeover will take awhile. So, here I am finally posting this long awaited makeover.

To my lovely "buena mano" bride Misty, thank you from the bottom of my heart for again trusting me to do yours and your family's makeover during this very special moment. Doing your makeup during your civil wedding almost 2 years ago is already very memorable. Doing it once again during your church ceremony feels all the more heart-warming. It kind of feels like a tap in the shoulder, and telling me that I'm really doing a good job. ;)
I'd like to also congratulate you and sir Leo for I know you are already expecting your little one and I'm sure that baby will be the cutest ever. God bless you and your family.

Haul: MAC Cosmetics

 Just when I told myself I won't be posting another haul anytime soon, I just can't help it. I have a folder full of photos to share. Hehe. Today's another special haul 'coz it's my first ever from MAC. Though I own a few items from them, those were gifts given to me. This time, it's from my own purchase (using again of course my hard-earned cash).
If you haven't seen my latest high end makeup haul, click here.

But see this? Wouldn't you feel giddy holding and seeing this bag full of makeup? I bet all you makeup junkies like me agree too. I just feel lucky that I do freelance makeup so I don't have to feel guilty about my purchases. (Lucky excuse) Hahaha!
Glamour Daze collection pouch I got for free
Truth is, this purchase wasn't planned the way I wanted it to happen. I was supposed to purchase a 2nd batch of high end products at Make Up Pro (sometime mid-December) for my wedding gigs last December but it was unfortunate that when I arrived at the store in Makati, they were already closed. And the best bet I could do to get my hands on some basic essentials is to go to MOA. And so I went, thus this haul.
Peek in with me and read more to see what products I purchased for my kit...

Makeup Pro Haul - High End Makeup

I know I've been most delinquent in updating my blog in the past weeks. Don't want to reason out but surely a lot of things have happened and I can't wait to share 'em with you. =)))
But let me just jumpstart and share one haul i'm mostly proud of, not that these are high end products and more on the pricey side but because these are things I've written in my wish list from years back and now finally got them.
All these are from my hard-earned money and not for showing off. I know a lot who ask me what products I have in my kit, and I myself love knowing other Pro MUA-recommended products out there. So I'm hoping this could be helpful too.
Got all these from Make Up Pro last November. I know, it's late and I think they've slightly raised some prices already but theirs are still remarkably lower than those from the malls. The place is a makeup heaven, I warn you. I went there with a list so as not to go over my budget. I recommend you do too. You can always come back for more, though. Haha!
I focused more on initially investing on face base products so read more to see which ones I got...

Post-nup: Maryknoll and Neil

The most beautiful smiles come from those who bear a growing life in them.
Meet my beautiful bride Maryknoll. I was very blessed to meet her and work with her and her husband for a post-nuptial shoot which we did in Manila.
Super thanks to the awesome photographer Mot Rasay for trusting my work and referring me to be part of the shoot.
Take a look at more beautiful photos after the jump...

Extreme Makeover: Hair Edition

I've always been that girl known for my big black hair. One night, I went ahead and gathered enough courage to change it up and finally go out of my ultra-comfort zone. Thus, I'm sharing this special post about the most adventurous thing I've done so far.
Things didn't happen as I've wished for the to and I got scared, but I'm sharing these things (tips, tricks and trivia too) for all you guys out there.

Read on and see how I did all of it here...

Prenup: Mark & Elle

Credits to Cuenca Digitals for this photo
Mark is my (photographer) friend and so he commissioned me to help glam up her beautiful then-fiance Elle. =)

Elle is already naturally beautiful even before the makeup, but since the prenup would be outdoors and she prepared a handful set of clothes, might as well go for the full glammed up look. I gave her (of course) fresh flawless skin, daytime smokey, healthy looking flushed cheeks and a youthful lip color for the shoot.
A little side-note, I think she resembles Star Power Finalist K-La Rivera, right??? ^^

Elle's first outfit is that of the 1st photo. Side braids for the hair and a mix of fishtail braids and twists plus her cute jumper outfit makes for a cute youthful set of photos. 
I just don't have a good shot from my own cam. But they've got a beautiful set and she changed up her clothes a couple of times and so I did different hairstyles too.
You need to see their lovely photos... Check 'em out after the jump. ;)

Nicole's Graduation Portrait

Today's makeup makeover features this super sassy gal named Nicole.
Nicole asked me to do her hair and makeup for her graduation pictorial. She told me that some of her classmates who were done with shoot did not quite like their makeup which were serviced on the pictorial site. Our house/office is just across DLSU-D so Nicole didn't think twice of asking for my help. *kilig*
Nicole hair's naturally sexy wavy but already a bit dry due to coloring. What I did was blowed it dry and gave her stunning big natural curls... vintage-inspired for that classic look.

NEW! Cara Cosmetics + Roselia Essence Masks

I am so excited for this post! =)
Why? Because I am finally sharing with you our newest discoveries from the K-pop land to hit your beauty stash. Hehe!
I think around summer last year, my sister went to Korea to scout for new products to bring to us all here in the Philippines. She discovered the brand Cara and found out that they carry an amazing line of skincare and cosmetics. They have lots and lots of products that cater to those women and men who would love to give themselves some pampering and caring.These products that I'll be featuring today were carefully picked out by my Ate Myra to bring here to the Philippines, giving us all the chance to try and enjoy.
Are you ready?
This is an incomplete group photo, hehe! Stocks of the other items are at my sister's condo. Be sure to scroll down and read more to see all of 'em here.

Getting Back Together on 2013

I know it has been forever. (That's too much of a statement but it feels like it. Haha!) A lot of things have happened. And gosh, a year has passed already. It is quickly past mid-month of January and I'm writing this as my first attempt to blog again after so long. It feels too long, for the past months and weeks have been somewhat an over-all whirlwind for me.
I remember saying months before the past year ended, that 2012 was a roller-coaster-ride of new and extreme events. Though I've been through trials and challenges, I know I've breezed through every single one of them and turned them into achievements. Of course I would not have done that without the help of a lot people; my family, friends, boyfriend and especially God. And of course you guys...whom I know some of you have still been visiting my little baby blog even if I've taken it for granted for a little while. It was a challenge for me to update this with anything as it was already a challenge to survive an extremely busy day during the past month. So, thank you from the bottom of my touched and humbled heart. 
There were days when I wanted to just grab my computer and share something in here but whenever I get a free time, I just find myself resting. Haha! I did plenty of work that I even got super sick for over a week. I came to a point during the last days of December when I had a high fever even while on a makeup gig where I needed to do 6 people all by myself. I was praying through and through that the Lord guide me so I'd finish. And thankfully, my clients were still very happy after the makeover.
To this, I would just also like to take this opportunity to thank all my clients, especially my brides for trusting me to do their makeup especially on their big day. It is always a pleasure to know that people trust you to do what you love doing and they're up for making you part of that very special moment.
I know I have promised my clients that I'd be uploading the photos after New Year but sadly my Macbook charger just got busted for the nth time and I would need to purchase a new one. All my photos and other work files are there so please bare with me as there would be a little more delay. (I'm using mom's laptop for the time being.)
Meanwhile, I know it would be best to just push it, move forward and start up again, work with what I have and post a preview of exciting things that have happened and those that I'll be sharing with you guys in the coming days.
So, are you ready? =)

Myrskin is my sister's official page. My Ate Myra is the one who introduced me to Encara BB Cream and more Korean skincare and cosmetics. Remember my post about a table-full of Korean products? See it HERE.
They are now available for purchase and the products are already posted there. I will be re-uploading them on my makeup page too and will also be featuring each one here in my blog.

 We even finally tried to join a bazaar and the experience was amazing. It was a learning experience and I'm  excited to be part of more bazaars in the future. :)
And yes, though I was only there during the 1st day, I was able to do makeovers on some of the clients who purchased and visited our booth. And...
