Monica

Monica is one of the constants in my life. We’ve known each other since Prep in School of the Holy Spirit, and as some girls can attest, all-girl convent schools are the perfect breeding ground for life-long friendships. There were whole years that we have neither seen nor talked to each other, but when we do, we simply pick up where we left off. We probably get along well because we’re both Scorpio– in Monica’s world, pretty much everything can be explained through your zodiac sign.

Jeff + Audrey’s Batanes Engagement Shoot

Batanes has been on my bucket list of dream destinations for a long time, but I’ve always thought of so many excuses on why I can’t go there just yet. Plane ticket’s expensive, it’s cheaper to go to Hong Kong. Unpredictable weather, what if I get stranded there and miss important work? Do I really have to allot a week? And so on. So when photographer Jamie Lihan asked me out of the blue if I’m game to do a shoot in Batanes, I can’t believe it. Dream destination come true! No excuses, of course I said yes! Batanes was absolutely breathtaking, as you’ll see in the photos. It was everything I expected and more. Thanks Jeff, Audrey, and Jamie for the memorable experience, I can’t wait to go back!

Star

Star was my officemate in my past life as a marketing person in Universal Robina Corporation.  Corporate life may not be for me, but for the 2 jobs I had before I made the switch to makeup artistry, I’m extremely lucky to be surrounded by good officemates, most of whom I still keep in touch with. Check out Star and Lester’s wedding photos taken in sunny Acuatico Resort (one of my fave resorts in Laiya!):

Sara

Three days before her wedding, Sara got dengue fever. Yep, you read that right. Deadly dengue. I seriously don’t know how she was able to recover in such a short span of time, but I guess walang sakit sakit pag ikakasal! Looking at the photos, she didn’t look the least bit sick, agree?

Bede + Abu’s Korean Engagement Shoot

When I first went to Seoul, South Korea March last year, I told myself I will definitely be back to explore more of this interesting country (and to hoard cheap Korean makeup!). So I was really surprised when in just 3 months, I was back to do makeup for my friends Abu and Bede’s engagement shoot. I got my wish to explore too because aside from the Myeongdong shopping district, we shot in different parts of the city that tourists don’t normally go to. Photographers Jorem and Sheila Catilo expertly captured that Koreanovela feel, all the while keeping things fun and laid back. To cap off this amazing trip, I was upgraded to business class on my flight home for free. Sweet! 🙂

Camille

When I was a freshman in Ateneo, I sat beside this friendly and chatty girl during our English block orientation seminar. Camille and I instantly became friends, and all through out college we’d have other classes together. A few years after graduating, I soon bumped into her again when we started working in the wedding industry– I as a makeup artist and she as a bridal gown designer (plus, she manages the family-owned events place The Glass Garden). We both started on the same year, and we helped each other through several collaborations. Looking back, it really is amazing how far we’ve both gone in our respective careers. I couldn’t be happier when she asked me to do her wedding makeup, it really is something when a co-supplier trusts you for her own big day. I should be congratulating Camille and Martin for their wedding, but this post is sooo delayed, I should be congratulating them now for their baby girl Ava!

Faye

I feel like I’m cheating by including a wedding post here in my blog challenge because I semi-regularly do it anyway. I just really want to include Faye’s wedding portraits after receiving this email from her two weeks ago:

Step By Step Wedding / Natural Makeup

My bride-to-be Shaina agreed to let me document our trial makeup session earlier. She and her husband Patrick scheduled their prenup shoot in National Museum today so it was the perfect time to test her wedding makeup also. I will focus more on the process and not so much on the products in this post. All the photos have no edits, no filters whatsoever. Oh and hairstylist Alex Leyson photobombs pretty much each photo since we also tested her wedding hairstyle. Here’s my typical makeup workflow:
