Posting a photo tutorial on a simple green smokey eye look! 🙂
Sorry the pictures are not that clear, I’m still saving up for a better camera. haha!
Step 1: Prime your eyes.
Step 2: Pat on light green eye shadow on the inner until mid part of your lids.
Step 3: Pat on a brighter & shimmery green eye shadow on top of the light green eye shadow.
Step 4: Add a darker & matte green on the mid until the outer part of your lids.
Step 5: Using a blending brush, sweep brown over your crease, this will help blend out the harsh edges.
Step 6: Pile on some mascara.
Step 7: Add on a a winged eye liner! 😀
I was lucky enough to collaborate with an amazing Australian photographer last month! He was on his was to the Philippines and he was looking for make-up artists and models to shoot with in his short visit and fortunately, I was one of the few who got that chance!
I was actually surprised to find out that he was a foreigner, and Australian to be specific. I really thought that he was a FIlipino the whole time we were exchanging e-mails. I didn’t know until the model, my friend and I were already in the hotel lobby waiting for him to go down. I was very much curious and since I knew that the model had previously worked with him, I just had to ask her. Hahaha!
Anyway, the shoot went by quick. It only took us over 4 hours for both looks. I decided not to change her hair for the 2nd look anymore since I thought it was still went well with the look. The shoot was done in one of the busy streets of Makati, we started preparing at around 3 or 4 in the afternoon and Michael began taking photos at around 6 in the evening. I must say though, I was really glad my friend-and fellow make-up artist- was there to help out since she knew a but about photography. She was able to help both me and the photographer a lot!
Here’s a few samples of the looks I did that night 🙂
Oops. I can’t seem to post the other photos, the files might bee too big. Oh well..
I’ll try to post the rest of the shots next time..
…also tagged as the “comic book make-up”.
So yesterday, I was on leave from work because I was supposed to attend a Christmas party. Unfortunately, I had a very bad migraine and was in no mood to go to a party. I was, however, in the mood to put on make-up. hahaha!
One look that has become very popular these days (particularly last Halloween season) is the “comic book/cartoon character make-up” or “Pop art Make-up”. And I thought that yesterday was the perfect day to try it! LOL!
And so I did…
I didn’t realize it would be that fun! All my pictures looked funny to me! hahaha!

Ever since I’ve started out doing make-up professionally, I have grown tired of vividly lined black pencil eyeliners. I love black pencil eye liners (Prestige – to be specific) but I have issues on them looking unnatural, specially when I’m at the office. I mean, some days they look okay that way but some days I just want them to look more subtle or more natural.
Here’s a technique I do to achieve that:
Just line your upper and lower lids then smudge it using an angled eye liner/eyebrow brush!
Easy and simple right? 🙂
So it was my first time to do hair and make-up for a pageant, I didn’t realize how fun (altough tiring) it would be!
My client is a student from Mapua Institute of Technology, she is currently taking up and engineering course (Beauty and brains I tell you!).
She was a pleasant girl and my clients were both her and her partner. I was there for 9 solid hours but I didn’t even notice that 9 hous had gone by. Eventhough I knew I have been there for hours, I had a lot of fun doing different looks and chit chatting with the other make-up artists.
Here are a few photos (that I grabbed from my clients’ facebook page with her consent – just so we’re clear! LOL):
And, here are a few close up pictures that I was able to take from my (not so clear) camera that needs replacement. HAHA!

December in the Philippines is indeed the busiest month of the year, not just for make-up artists but for everyone!
I’m very excited because I have a number of clients lined up for this month and among them will be a soon to be bride. It makes me even more giddy because I will be doing Airbrush Make-up once again and I.JUST.LOVE.AIRBRUSH.MAKEUP! Hahaha!
Here are a few of my Bridal Airbrush works from my portfolio:
The model here is one of my workmates, her name is Maridan Vecino. Aside from being a part of my bridal hair and make-up portfolio, she is also lined up as one of my bridal hair and make-up clients next year! Yes, she’s getting married and modeling for a bridal hair and make-up served as a perfect preview for her.
My upcoming client will be in Cavite and that makes it much more amazing because, even though that’s not that far away, I love traveling too!
Yay! Can’t wait!
