Jannice

Jannice is one of my Singapore-based brides, yet again (See, kumikitang kabuhayan talaga ako because of Singapore!). I spent the whole day with her during their prenup shoot in Tagaytay a few months before the wedding, so I was quite comfortable with her already by the time we met again on her wedding day last December.

If you ask me what I really envy about other people’s features, I envy those with long eyelashes. I usually convince my brides to wear false eyelashes on their wedding day because it really makes the eyes look more awake, but since Jannice had such enviable lashes, I didn’t need to put any. As for me the inggitera, I’ll just have to make do with trusty Maybelline mascaras to do the job of lengthening mine.

Rose

Rose is my Texas-based bride. Her wedding was pretty special to me because it fell on my birthday. I definitely don’t mind spending my birthday working as long as I have awesome clients!

We were able to test the smokey eye look she wanted during their prenup shoot (check out the vintage themed photos here), so that’s what I also did for the wedding in Punta Fuego Batangas, sans the red lips to make the look softer.

Esel

All I really wanted were rain boots. But what I got in return was a family of bridal clients and personal makeup students! 2 years ago I was lusting for Plueys, these uber funky rain boots that I’ve seen on some of my friends. The inggitera that I am, of course I have to have my own pair. I was hesitant to order online because I wasn’t sure what size I have to get, so when I saw that the seller’s house is near where I live, I asked if I could fit them first there before I buy. Good thing she agreed, or else I wouldn’t have met Esel, the Plueys queen herself.

After I bought my pair, she referred me to her sister Kari, whom I did makeup on for her wedding. Kari and their other sister Risa also enrolled in Makeup Designory Manila‘s personal makeup class, which was taught by me. And then lastly, Esel also booked me for her very own wedding. It really is all in the family 🙂

I love the atmosphere of Esel’s wedding, it has an earthy and homey feel to it. It’s simple and unpretentious as you’ll see in the photos. But first, the requisite before-and-after!

Juvy

Juvy is one of my Singapore based brides. Recently I’ve been getting wedding clients from Singapore one right after the other! I was joking with my hairstylist that if ever we’ll work there, I don’t think we’ll have a hard time getting work because we already have a good network of Pinoys there. Kumikitang kabuhayan pa rin!

Juvy and I didn’t have trial makeup, but I’m happy and relieved she liked what I did. It helped that she has such a lovely face that’s a breeze to work on. I think the other suppliers, from the florist to the photographer, will agree that working with Juvy and her husband Joel was that too– a breeze. Congrats Juvy and Joel! 🙂
