As for my Brandstorm story, I asked my friend Ralph (left) if he wanted to join with me for fun, and with no expectations. We thought of asking Earl (right) because he’s really fun to work with. We still haven’t had a lot of experience with these competitions so we really entered with no expectations. We named our team ‘Bahala na si Batman’ thinking that we’d get eliminated after the first round so that we could join again next year as ‘Batman Returns.’
I did my own makeup for this, but entrusted my hair to G Mande (yes G is her official nickname). I really love how she can make miracles with my hair. She is the only person thus far who has let soft curls last on my hair. I mean stylists have already curled my hair, but the curls had to be very stiff and a lot of hairspray had to be used that my hair already feels unnatural. I love how she can easily pull of the Anne Curtis meets Georgina Wilson hairdo hahaha.
This year’s competition is closed door, meaning that we make our formal presentations in a private function room of L’Oréal. Only our professors, ourselves (as contestants), and of course the judges and the organizers are allowed. The repeat 5 minute summary of our performance in the awarding ceremony will no longer have any bearing on our scores.
I guess it’s safe to say I was stage mother for a day as I took a million photos of the other team hahahahaha.
They gave out samples of their Hydra Zen moisturizing gel essence.
Up next was Teamon and Pumba. With Miguel (leftmost), Nicole (second from left), and Jake (rightmost).
And last (but of course not the least) is team THGH with Emman, Vida, and Thurees.
