Beautiful with an attitude. Everything about being beautiful inside and out.

727 Cosmetics PH Workshop Experience

Last August 31, I attended a make-up workshop organized by 727 Cosmetics Philippines.  The brand being one of Japan’s luxury brands put together a workshop for make-up artists and enthusiasts that discussed about skincare, make-up, and vlogging basics.  Also, there were demonstrations on different make-up looks like bridal, celebrity and glam looks from some of the known make-up artists in the industry.

I learned a great deal of tips, tricks and hacks from established make-up artists in the entertainment and cosmetic industry, as well as knowing how to work some of the best products of 727 Cosmetics on different looks and occasions.

For an aspiring artist like me, knowing the basics and a few hacks doesn’t stop from your first ever make-up class.  It’s a continuing process of leveling up even until you’ve reached an expert level.  In beauty and make-up, this desire to continue learning should never stop.  The amount of gratitude towards one’s mentor or mentors is priceless, and that in itself is TREASURE.

The learning and practice didn’t stop from that day alone.  We were assigned to do different looks on a model or ourselves to apply what we have picked-up from the workshop.  This task pushed me to practice putting make-up on myself and be comfortable with it.  Also that I needed to be my own model, photographer and stylist, hehehe.

The 727 Cosmetics products I played around with on all my looks are…

727 Facial Clean Cream

727 Point Makeup Cheek Blush (COR2)

727 ELIP+ Liquid Lipstick (RD02 – glossy)

727 Spots Cover (Shade #2)

727 Products

Sharing with you below are my works:

BRIDAL LOOK

CELEBRITY LOOK

Our final task was to come up with a 3-minute tutorial-like video showcasing how we use the products we have from 727 Cosmetics.  My experience with this task was quite funny, because I filmed for an entire day, did my voice over for another day, and had to compress the whole process into a 3-minute video.  Girl, that was real hard work!!!

Here is my video, hope you’ll like it. 🙂

 

I have to say thanks (and I love you!) to Miss Jennifer Lopez (@jlo) and her glam team (@robzangardi@marielwashere @scottbarnes68@hairbylorenzomartin @tombachik@elsahair @balmain @olivier_rousteing@tiffanyandco @inglot_cosmetics@jlobeauty) for the make-up inspiration I had for this video.  I hope I did you justice 🙂  Your work inspires people like me in more ways than you could imagine.  All of you are such great people!!!

So, there!  Will be working more on my make-up, posing, editing, lighting, audio, styling…hey, that’s practically everythang, girrrr!!!  Hahaha!!!  Life is beautiful!

Smile always!!!

A Little Prenup Photography

Last weekend I had this make-up gig in the Rizal province.  My couple client wanted to capture sunset, moon rise and sunrise.  According to them, the best place to witness those was in Real, Quezon.  So it was roughly 3 hours drive from Robinsons Place Antipolo to Real, Quezon.  We met at 12 noon at Robinsons Place, Antipolo and arrived at Real, Quezon around 3 o’clock in the afternoon.  I was asleep most of the time during the trip, so I have no idea where we passed.

It was a small team of two photographers, one HMUA (me) and an assistant that took care of couple during the photoshoot.  After doing the bride-to-be’s makeup, we went to this seaside/shore area that was quite rocky.  I decided to do a little prenup photography myself, using my own camera (Sony DSC-WX500).  This is just to kill time while the official photographers do their magic.  Though the photos below are basically behind-the-scene shots, I’d like to think that I am now learning how to play around with my camera.  Sharing with you, I hope, are my best photos 🙂  Enjoy!

Behind-the-scenes photos of days 1 and 2:

We weren’t able to capture the moonrise because it got cloudy.  By the time the sky was clear to see the moon, we were already downing some beers and pulutans 🙂

My FS Cosmetics Collection, Finally!

So finally I got a chance to have a semi-complete collection of FS Cosmetics (Features and Shades) make-up.  Naturally, what a make-up enthusiast like me is going to do is try everything out, so here is my first ever make-up haul ( I hope for more to come soon, hehe) and a make-up practice because, well I’m getting rusty in the craft, you know! 🙂  But, #LoveYourBeauty ika nga ni FS Cosmetics, right girls?! 🙂

Hope you enjoy!

And here is the practice…

 

And here is my finished product!  Excuse my eye-maletas 🙂

 

While doing and editing these videos, I’ve discovered about fast-forwarding some clips, which has now inspired me to do more videos because now I can shorted them for faster uploads!  hehehe!  Cheers to more videos soon!

 

Smile always!

One Glam Day

Last January 21, 2018 was one of the most exciting days of my 2018 so far. For the first time, I was able to attend my first blogger event, and this was the Glamcon MNL 2018! The moment I got the information about this event from a blogger friend, I didn’t waste any moment to prepare for this day. On Jan. 21, I excitedly got my stuff together – camera, powerbank, cellphones, kikay kits, jacket, and went to the venue. To be honest, I didn’t know exactly how I’m going to blog/vlog this event coz I was just very excited to experience the event, especially meeting make-up gurus, whom I spend so much time watching on Youtube.

Upon arriving at SMX Convention Center at SM Aura, I immediately went to the Media/Blogger registration area and got my name checked. Though to my surprise, I saw my name already had a check mark, but the registration guy simply put another check mark beside it, and quickly informed me that I was upgraded to the next ticket level since I made the “first 100” attendees. Yehey!!! That’s a first for me hehehe. So, from Glamderella I got the Gliteratti ticket, which entitled me to a Glamcon MNL 2018 T-shirt aside from the loot bag. What’s in the bag? There’s a Sip mineral water bottle (which I quickly finished and wasn’t able to take photo of), iWhite BB Cream sachets, and a Salon Vitales vouvher for a rebond + keratin blowout package for only Php 1,500.00.

All the items I got from the Glamcon MNL 2018: loot bag items, freebies, and discounted treats.

258

I asked manong guard to take a photo of me coz I was alone at this time.

259

Walang chance mag OOTD pose.

256

As I entered the hall and found very interesting booths. There was a booth selling makeup mirrors with light bulbs, makeup artists bags and makeup pouches. Then there was a makeover booth wherein you can get a free makeover and get instantly glammed up. There was also a photo/studio booth where you could get a free photo of your glammed-up self. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to line up there anymore because the day officially started as Miss Say Tioco officially welcomed and opened the event. I hurriedly went to the #GlamGala area and sat to listen to the first guest speaker – Miss Ana Victorino.

238

Super happy to see Miss Say Tioco!!!

Miss Ana Victorino discussed some make-up 101 essentials, which started with skin care, then the makeup tools, and ended her session with a 5min make-up challenge. After that there was a sort of a game where she asked questions about what she discussed and gave away some fab prizes. I was lucky to answer one question and got these prizes: a cosmetic and brush sanitizer and a Sooper Beaute Tinte fluid foundation.

Then I went around some more to check out the other booths and then went to get lunch. Before leaving the hall for lunch, I couldn’t help but stop by the Pink Sugar booth to check out their lipsticks and eventually got myself some.

–lunch break–

At this point I missed the talk of Miss Jessica Godinez about daily skincare routine, and Miss Raiza Contawi’s talk on matching one’s make-up and outfit.

Here are the booths inside the Glamcon MNL 2018 Hall:

Naruko, Miss Bella, Pink Sugar, Paprika, iWhite, Biore, Liese, Skincare Curator, Unlock the DIVA, Ciracle.

When I came back from my lunch, I immediately went to the #GlamGala area again and stayed there until the most anticipated session ended. So, after lunch was this talk about “Beauty On Our Terms”, and part of the panelists/guests were Venur Raj, Joyce Pring, Abby Assistio, and Julianne Tarroja who all shared their pieces about how we should come up with our own terms of what is beautiful. This panel discussion was moderated by Danah and Stacy of Plump.ph.

 

After this was a short demonstration by Leo Posadas on how one could properly do one’s eyebrows.  Shortly after was a very lively and fun discussion on men’s care with Micah Muñoz, Ronan Domingo, James Burn and Michael Burtscher.

291

Then after was Ning Tadena’s empowering talk on how we can each unlock the DIVA within us, channeling our pain to positive outcome making us better versions of ourselves.

 

After that was a serenade of from Bea Lorenzo, and soon was my most-awaited session where celebrated make-up gurus share how make-up each made an impact on to their lives. A take home lesson I got from each of them is that if I were planning to follow any of their footsteps, I better start now and don’t compare myself to others, as they did when each of them were starting.

Here’s a sneak peek of my fangirl day at Glamcon MNL 2018:

Mission accomplished as I got photos with the people who I follow on various social media platforms.  Moral lesson and note to self:  don’t go alone when attending events, someone else should take your photos! hahaha!

Hope you enjoy my sharing with you.

Smile always!
