Makeup Gig for G By Guess Fashion Show

This is another overdue post! Hee hee! So basically I just did makeup on Alyannah, a model they hired for the G by Guess fashion show during the culminating activity for this year's UPC freshie week! She's super pretty, super nice, and it was an honor doing her makeup knowing that she's one of this year's Mutya ng Pilipinas contestants!!! 

So in this only photo I have, her hair still wasn't styled hence the stray hairs! And I think it's got something to do with the lighting as to why her eyebags look heavy in the photo. In real life they are definitely not like that!!! She's really pretty and has already well defined features so dolling her up was a breeze.

My Project Genderway Fashion Show Stint (my first out-of-school gig!!!)

This is a long overdue post! Tee hee!!! And look at oily me and Myrtle together! (I've known her since 2010 and this is kind of a reunion after almost 2 years of not seeing her) 

So I have long been trying to apply at this makeup company, MMUAH (Manila Makeup and Hairstyling Company). And I have already started to think that maybe they're not in need of applicants as all my queries have gone unanwered for months. That was until my friend Krisna (who was friends with the head of MMUAH, Paloma), introduced me to her. 

It was June 27 when Paloma started texting me. She asked if I could do a little help in the Project Genderway fashion show coming up the next day. It was a fashion show that was to culminate the UP Gender Pride week and was to feature models of the LGBT community as well as models of all sizes (not just the skinny ones!). The call time was 3PM. Since I was only available starting 5:30 PM, I thought that maybe by the time I arrive I would just be doing touch ups and patting powder on the in case the models' skin started to get oily. 

I WAS WRONG. TERRIBLY WRONG. They had been told that the deal was to do makeup on 20 models but on the actual day itself, almost 40 models came- twice the number promised! Quite intense for a first gig.

Fanny Serrano Eyeshadow Quad

Hi everyone! I know that some people are uncomfortable to buy Fanny Serrano products as it's more of a masa brand, but for a masa brand it's really good. In fact it can even par up to my more expensive eyeshadows! Wag mamaliitin si Tita Fanny! 

And to get an eyeshadow quad of reliable quality (they're made in Taiwan, not China!) for 150 pesos is definitely a steal! So let me get into more detail on this eyeshadow quad...
