The weekend before Christmas, a photographer friend invited me to do makeup for a shoot for dresses designed by Myra Centeno (of Centeno Couture) at Parks and Wildlife in Quezon City. I'm not sure if I've been there before, but if I have, I don't remember it at all since when I first got to the park, I was surprised at how picturesque it was! No wonder a lot of photographers hold shoots there.
My models for the day were Sarah, Ame, and Charina. I don't have Charina's shots yet though, so here are Sarah's and Ame's photos for now:
This is Sarah. She's half-pinay, half-british, in case you're wondering. ;)
Hey Guys!!! With the Christmas holidays well on its way, I finally found some time to make a Facebook page for my makeup artist alter-ego. If you have a Facebook account and like what I do on this blog, please do like my page! Just click on the "Like" button below, I'd really appreciate it :D
Last month, I did makeup for the hosts of a Selecta Cornetto event. This is my second time doing so, the first one was during the 3rd Grand Eyeball of the Tugs Tugs Club, and this time it's for the 4th GEB!
One of the best suppliers I found out about when I went to makeup school is Mang Ed. You see, Mang Ed sells false eyelashes in bulk - and by bulk, I mean a minimum of 6 dozen pairs.
6 dozen pairs might seem too much, but for makeup artists, this is a kit staple.
Yesterday I ordered falsies from Mang Ed since my stock was almost out, so I also got to chat with him a bit. Making false eyelashes was originally the business of his wife, but eventually he started helping out more with this. And business seems to be really good, since he says he was able to send 3 kids to college because of it. Now he has a lawyer, an accountant, and a computer science graduate who turned into a makeup artist. Cool, huh? :)
Mang Ed supplies falsies to makeup artists and students of various makeup schools in the country since he is highly recommended by a lot of instructors. And there's no doubt on why the false eye lashes are highly recommended - they're affordable, and at the same time, the pairs that he and his wife makes are the most natural-looking falsies I've used so far. Definitely better than big brands like Ardell for example, in terms of producing false eyelashes that don't look too fake. The lashes are made of human hair but are not perfectly even - but that's what actually makes them very natural looking, since our lashes aren't in perfect or even lengths either.
Sorry for being MIA for weeks again!!! Now I shall compensate by posting a tutorial I mentioned months earlier when I first got a perm but never got around to making - a tutorial on how to style digipermed hair!
This look is for people who would want to keep the original Goldilocks-like quality of fresh-from-the-salon digipermed hair. Observe:
Neat curls right after the perm
Without styling, this is how my hair looks like:
Lots of waves and volume, but if you'd prefer to keep the original state of your digipermed hair, read on for the tutorial!
