I’ve been more active recently in Instagram than in blogging. Here are some of my makeup related posts there last August and September. Follow me @krisbacani!

Makeup artist Georginna Desuasido gave me this Super Brush Roll. The thing is HUGE. I put as much tools as I can and I was able to fit 88 pieces comfortably. Available at Purbeauty stores for P595.

    I have been a fan of yours for months now and I dream to be a make up artist too. I am planning to enroll for a diploma course in MUD but I don’t have the budget to push through with it. What are the classes that you can suggest for me to take for professional make up artistry and hairstyling? I hope you can write an article about make schools or make up course and tips and tricks on how to pursue make up artistry. Thanks!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Wish you can do my make up when I get married 😀

      Hi Antoinette! THANK YOU 🙂 Don’t let go of your dream. If you can’t afford the diploma course, try the Basic Certificate first. It is around 1/6th of the cost of the diploma and will cover the the basics you need to jumpstart your career. Of course I will suggest Makeup Designory Manila over the other schools 🙂 I will definitely write about tips and tricks on how to pursue makeup artistry, other people suggested that too. I would LOVE to do your makeup when you get married!

        Yay! Thanks for responding! 🙂 🙂 🙂 I have taken personal basic and advanced make up classes already and know a bit about the art already. Would you think it’ll be advisable if I’ll jump to adanced class already? How about hairstyling? What school would you recommend or does MUD offer a course for that too? 🙂

          Where did you take your personal and advanced classes? I think in MUD you have to show your certificate to get to advanced or if there’s no certificate, you have to show your work first to gauge if you’re qualified. Call 8469016 and ask 🙂 As for hairstyling, MUD offers it too, just call to inquire. I’m just not sure about other hairstyling schools.

          If you have certificates for your personal and advanced classes then you can take the advanced class of MUD, just show the certificate. If you don’t, I think they will require you to show your work to gauge if you’re qualified or not. MUD has hairstyling too, just not sure about other schools.

            I see. Thanks! 🙂 One last thing, I just thought to ask you a minute ago, what’s the best matte eyeshadow palette? Shimmery ones are easy to find but I’m having trouble looking for a good matte eye shadow palette 😀

            Hmmm can’t exactly say what’s the best, though I can tell you what I have. I have all of MUD’s matte eyeshadows. When I went to US last July I bought a lot of Inglot (soon to open in Manila!) matte ones as well, which is a steal at $6 each. So far so good. I also have some Viseart which I bought from the States also, and they’re very pigmented. A reseller of Viseart here told me it’s what Juan Sarte uses. 🙂

            Cool! Yeah, I had a balikbayan box sent here last July and bought make ups and train case from US too. The prices of the make ups here in PH are unbelievable. It’s as if we don’t have the right to wear ’em. I’m gonna hunt for those shadows you suggested. Thanks! 🙂
