K-Pop Inspired Makeup

Anyong!!  

I feel good! I feel very very good today! Happy days are coming. How about you? I hope you're doing very well too. 

As we all know, K-Pop is very popular here in the Philippines. Apart from their impressive dance moves and voices, we admire how they look too! Their fashion style and makeup makes them so ridiculously hot and beautiful. Who's with me? (Okay rasad ang uban dili mo agree. Hehe!)

Here's a K-Pop inspired makeup I did. I added few accessories and colored my hair yellow to complete the look. And yeah! Those contacts! Haha! I looked different. 


Female and male K-pop stars wear eyeliner.

Project like a star.

Glitters! 









This post is long overdue. I'm sorry. Till next time lovelies. Enjoy your vacation. :)

Makeup Transformation for Merk

"If you're going through hell, keep going." Winston Churchill


Hey hey hey! How are you doing folks? I'm doing fine. Thank you for asking back. :) 

Today, I'm going to share with you what I and my friend and colleague did few months ago. I would like you to meet Merk. Here's the makeup transformation I did for her. ("Her" jud ka ha. Hehe)

To create a more sculpted look, I applied the "baking the powder" technique which means buffing the powder where we usually highlight.

Looking great Merk!

Vampire Makeup

Have you seen a real vampire? Let me show you one. Drum rolls please! Hehe..

What's up everybody? Halloween is coming and I thought it would be great to do a vampire makeup. I had fun doing this look. My siblings were kind of afraid looking at me. It's scarier when you got to see me in person wearing this kind of makeup. 


Do you want to lure your victim with your seductive, enticing, scary vampire eyes? This look is perfect for Halloween.


Pull it off with a not so creepy stare. ;)


Okay, let's make it creepier. 


Almost transforming into a nasty vampire. I didn't bother wearing fangs because of my braces. I didn't bother smiling too. You'll find it very funny seeing a vampire with braces on. Lol!


If you want more drama, add your gross fake blood. I tasted it. Trust me, it's salty! Just like true blood. 

Drawing fake veins make this look creepier. So, what now? Are you ready for Halloween?


You might wonder where I got those red contacts. I got it from Elite Contact Lens. It's called Bella Swan. You're welcome. 

 Let me know your thoughts. Have a great day everyone. :)

Can't believe what I did to her bridal makeup

Gotcha! Let me guess, you were thinking negative. Aha! Well, nothing awful happened to my client's bridal makeup. I'm sorry dear. Did I just trick you to visit my page. Hehe. I won't do it again. 

Oops! Let me greet you with a warm smile in my face. Hey lovelies! I'm back with another post. Obviously. Hehe. How's everything going? I hope you're doing very well today. 

A college friend and classmate of mine asked me if I could do her friend's wedding makeup.Without a second thought I said yes. I was excited! Why would I turned down that great offer? After all, I'm trying to build my portfolio as Cebu makeup artist. A great opportunity knocked and I grabbed it right away. 

Enough babbling. Let me introduce my client all the way from Sydney, Autralia, Mrs. Evelyn Alforque. Take a look at these bridal photos. Not all are mine though.

Her makeup did last all day. It didn't smudge. I and my hair stylist did a few touch ups though. It's our job to change her look a little bit once she arrived in the reception.

I was so glad she liked the makeup I did for her. It didn't change her face, rather it enhanced her natural beauty.

Before and After Makeup

What's up everyone? My apologies for my laziness. I'm finally back! I couldn't believe I almost forgot the name of my blog! I feel so guilty not doing anything about it so here I am again. 

I promised in my last post that I would keep you posted once I finished my makeup class with the famous Cebu makeup artist, Jessie Glova. However, obviously it took me sometime to fulfill that promise. Well, what happened after that? I got broke! Haha! Seriously, I started saving money to buy quality makeup. It was kind of hard to invest on expensive yet quality ones when I didn't have many clients yet. That was the risk. 

Slowly, I was able to build my name as a makeup artist. Few people contacted me and I was grateful enough they considered me. By the way, I'm still doing this whole makeup thing part time.  

So now, I'm posting some of my previous clients' photos (which I took). Let me know what you think. :) 





That's all for now. Have a great day! Stay fab girls! :)
