“Like most of the brides, I could barely sleep the night before the wedding. So on the day itself, I was worried because I thought that I must have looked exhausted and not at all like a bride. To my surprise, my makeup lasted the whole day, looking natural, fresh and beautiful unitl the end. Kris did an amazing job! ” – Jobelle




“I just depended on my instinct when I booked Kris. I was never a fan of makeup and I didn’t know any makeup artists then. Kris made feel like im a princess on my wedding day. I didn’t even have to retouch my makeup even though I was crying really hard on my way down the aisle. Relying on my instinct was the perfect decision that I made! I really had fun working with you, Kris. Thank you!” – Kara



Nicolai Melicor Photography

I’ve been working a lot with the talented Nicolai Melicor lately.  Here are some portraits that she took with our brides Mayleen, Jan, Veron, and Seaneen. Thanks Nicolai for sending these over, and I hope to work with you again soon!




“I had a hard time choosing my makeup artist for my wedding since I knew very little about makeup and didn’t know what to look for in a makeup artist. Plus, I didn’t want to end up with the usual makeup artists who insist on a heavy-handed style and who would turn me into someone I’m not. But Kris was a real find and she understood exactly what I was looking for even before I knew it myself. She gave me a simple, fresh look, while still making me more beautiful than I thought I could be. Thanks, Kris! You’re the best!” -Lyn



Angel was my co-cheerleader, way back during my Ateneo Blue Babble days. I’m so happy to be cheering her on during her big day, in Boracay no less! 🙂




The first few times I did Abu’s makeup was way back 2007. I was just studying basic makeup artistry then in Center for Aesthetic Studies and she was one of my ever willing guinea pig-slash-model during classes. I really have a soft spot for my supportive friends who have helped me start out. To make her even more awesome in my eyes, Abu and his husband Bede brought me to Korea for their engagement shoot!




I’ve been doing makeup for Ateneo batchmates lately,  everyone’s getting hitched one right after the other! Deng and I both took up the same course, and I was surprised to learn during our trial makeup that we also both worked for the same company, URC, briefly. That’s where Deng met Seph. Check out their wedding photos below 🙂




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!
